It was a cold and rainy day, and our clothes were wet from the day before. The hotel kindly let us check in early at 12 noon, and also gave us a late check out. We no longer had Starwood Preferred Gold status (didn't make status for this year), but the hotel still treated us very well. We used points + cash for the stay, which is a great deal because you get a big room with all the amenities -- it has to be one of the larger rooms in Tokyo.
It was raining. We arrived at Ebisu Station on the convenient Hamone-Yamoto line and walked all the way underground to the hotel so that rain never hit us. Walk to Ebisu Garden Place using the moving walkways, stay to the right and go down an escalator towards "Glass Palace". Go past Baskin Robbins ice cream and Burger King, and enter on the basement floor of Westin (door on your left). Your head should always be covered, although at one point you're exposed to the wind.
Because the weather remained rainy on our visit, Westin was a perfect visit as we used this underground passage to get food (Robuchon, Lawry's, Dean & Deluca are some high-end options, but they've got a ton of Japanese ministalls and bakeries on basement 2nd level and local Japanese restaurants.) We also used the gym a lot -- again very much appreciated on a rainy day. It was also enjoyable to soak in the large bathtub.
I had originally booked a small budget room in Tokyo but am so glad we splurged on the Westin. It's nice to be able to stay in and enjoy some English-speaking TV channels, a gym, etc and not be forced to go out. It turned our vacation into a relaxing staycation. Westin was truly a home away from home for us.
