I stayed here twice last week, the first time for a few days before going to Nagoya and again on my return. So when I talk about the rooms in this review, I'll refer to two, the first, 1904 and the second, 1014.
I was upgraded to a suite, 1014 on my second stay and it was very spacious, and by far, the best room that I've stayed in out of the four hotels that I've stayed in on my four trips to Japan so far this year.
I didn't really have time to look around the grounds or amenities including the pool unfortunately!
The decor is quite conservative with a lot of timber so very unlike a contemporary Westin but more in the Sheraton style. A little dated but well-maintained although I found the water pressure in the wash hand basins a tad low.
The variety at breakfast was expansive with a choice of smoothies, my favourite! There were a variety of cuisines so something for everyone.
Service as with most hotels in Japan was excellent.
The Ebisu station on the JR Yamanote line was only a 10 minute amble away with the subway line underneath the JR station.
I particularly liked the interior walkway through the Yebisu Gardens which was very convenient and provided shelter when the weather turned inclement.
A Mitsukoshi department store was just across the road and particularly in Tokyo, these once dominant department stores were the only place to go shopping but it seems these are disappearing with the changing shopping patterns. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to look through Mitsukoshi but I will do on a future visit.
The Airport Limousine Bus service is available at this hotel and runs on an hourly schedule and perhaps the only drawback of a superb service is the Westin is at the end of a run meaning you need to allow two hours for this trip whereas if you were at the other end of this service, the trip to Narita is barely an hour.
