Have stayed in great hotels world wide. This one rates at the top. We were dusty and carrying only back packs, having shipped our luggage ahead to the Westin some days previously (great system by the way). The staff did not miss a beat despite our appearance - throughout our stay all hotel staff were super polite, helpful and accommodating. We upgraded to club and enjoyed a fabulous room with fine inlaid wood furnishings, an exquisite bath, lots of toiletries, nice yakutas and slippers ect, great linens and a view that at night felt like an infinity pool of lights: there were floor to ceiling windows looking toward the downtown of Tokyo. The club floor offered nice happy hour snacks and drinks plus a very good breakfast of mixed Japanese and westerns treats. The buffet was equally available to us (included with room) on the main floor. It was vast! Don't go there on Sunday though unless you book ahead - it is a fancy and popular place for family brunch. The hotel offers access to a fitness center in the mall which can be reached from the lower level of the hotel so you don't need to go outside.
The hotel is located in a quieter area of Tokyo which frankly is rather a relief from much of the city density. Still, it is well served with indoor/outdoor shopping center attached, great restaurants around and a skywalk moving sidewalk to the Ebisu Subway Station. The station is on a the main JR line that circles Tokyo, so it is easy to get to - look for the East Gate sign when you get off the train. As you approach that exit you will see the skywalk. Looking straight ahead, you can see the Westin sign as you reach the very end of the skywalk: hotel is situated on the far side of the mall. We did discover that you can walk inside through the mall if it is raining. Stay to the right when leaving the skywalk and head down a level. Then you can walk through to the far side of the mall and via a sort of tunnel at the end, straight into the lower level of the hotel. The hotel web is quiet poor for directions unless you are driving - but we found it easily enough at the end.
Importantly, we discovered that the tall office towers on one side of that pretty shopping mall had two full floors at the top for restaurants. Some had almost theatre style seating that allowed a superb view for everyone. There must have been 20 +restaurants up there - all different. and ranging from pub style to very expensive. You take the elevators inside the tower lobby
