Shinjuku West exit

I will arrive Tokyo from Osaka via Willer bus and the final stop will be at Shinjuku West exit. What is a west exit? If this is a train exit, is this one railway exit only? I'm kinda confused with all the trains -- example in Osaka that there are diff train operators but all called Namba. So if this is Shinjuku exit, what exit of what railway?

The exact stop of the bus will be in Shinjuku Sumitomo Bldg, what hotels are near in this station?

Shinjuku West Exit means JR Shinjuku Station West Exit. On the Google map, you'll see a big bus terminal with a bunch of bus stop signs in front of Odakyu department store.

Just to clarify, there is no JR Shinjuku North Exit.

Hi Shibuyakko, according to Willer Express, the bus terminal is at Shinjuku Sumitomo buiding. Is this the same area you were referring in your post?

Somehow I missed Sumitomo Building part. It's about a 8-10 minute walk from the West Exit. Follow the directions in Nao's link.

Hotels near the bus terminals are; Keio Plaza, Hilton, Hyatt, Washington, etc.
