I love Japan. I love Kyoto and I especially love the Westin Kyoto.
We stayed for 8 nights in October and I really cannot fault anything about this hotel
We were attended to very quickly upon arrival and because we are Starwood members were given a room with a balcony overlooking the hills. Fantastic! We sat out at night and watched the lights come on over the town and the distant hills.
The Philosopher's walk is across the road and once again we enjoyed the walk with the gardens and the temples, a must for anyone staying in the hotel.
So close to the train, but the shuttle running into town every half hour is brilliant. The drivers are so polite and helpful.
We had breakfast included in our taffif and the food was plentiful and OK.
We ate twice in the restaurant It was OK but there are so many good little cafes down the road where the food is wonderful and SO cheap. We found the Cafe Miyako just down the road really nice.
We didn't use other amenities such as the pool or tennis court so I cannot comment on these. We just did not have time. There is so much to do in this wonderful city.
If we come back to Kyoto and I hope we do, the Westin is the place.
