The Westin Miyako Kyoto ウェスティン都ホテル京都
Elegance and serenity in the hills above Kyoto
Set in the Higashiyama Hills overlooking Japan's ancient capital, the Westin Miyako Kyoto draws tourists from all over with a blend of understated elegance and location. The hotel is near the Philosophers Path , which takes you past temples, shrines and quaint shops. Nanzenji Temple and Heian-jingu Shrine as well as the Nishiki Market are all within easy reach. While the hotel is some distance from Kyoto Station, the subway is just five minutes away, and the Westin provides free shuttle services to both that station and the Gion nightlife area.
The Westin itself is atmospheric, with several lovely gardens designed by famed landscape artists. You have a choice of spacious Western- or Japanese-style accommodations, with the former featuring the Westin's original Heavenly beds. The hotel's five fine restaurants, lounge and bar give you several dining and drinking options, while the on-site fitness center offers multiple swimming pools, workout machines, a jacuzzi and sauna. If you're traveling with children, take advantage of the hotel's kids room and babysitting service.
