We stayed one night in the Westin Nagoya Castle as part of a tour in April 2014. What really stood out was the memory of opening the curtains in our room and seeing Nagoya Castle right in front of us, in all its glory. It was night night and the castle was stunningly lit.
For that view alone, first-time visitors should consider a stay at the Westin Nagoya Castle.
Of course, breath-taking view aside, you get everything that you would expect from the Westin: a grand lobby, luxurious bathrobes, a fantastic high-tech showerhead that took a few seconds to figure out (excellent water pressure), hotel-wide wifi and super-comfortable beds. I think I had the best night of sleep at the Westin Nagoya Castle out of the entire tour.
If you’re after a nice stroll, the footpath around the castle grounds offers a perfect (almost traffic free) path for walking or jogging. The footpath wasn’t exactly well lit at night but you do feel very safe with all the joggers and cyclists along the way.
Buffet breakfast the next day was rather mediocre. The selection of Japanese food wasn’t very large, but that was understandable given that the hotel probably caters more to foreigners than to locals. The quality and variety of the food offered was good, not great. The kitchen also seemed to have difficulty keeping up with the rate at which food was being depleted and there were some plates sitting empty at the buffet. The coffee was excellent, though.
As we stayed at the Westin Nagoya as part of a guided tour, such factors as proximity to public transport or the quality of the service weren’t part of the consideration. Our room was very clean, quiet, comfortable and quite spacious for two people, although the lingering stench of stale cigarette smoke that greeted us when we entered the room was a little unpleasant. Be sure to ask for a non-smoking room if you are a non-smoker.
