Looks like a very nice hotel, with high ceiling spaces . . . . I wonder how they keep those high areas clean . . . .

The Westin Tokyo is overpriced with no respect for the customer and bad service.

the socalled Chinese restaurant is a complete rip off.

the only good thing about it is the cigar shop.

It looks very nice indeed. But they are overcooking the pudding a bit with the '9 DNAs' and 'urban wellness' stuff. 'The interior and exterior are dynamically connected' or nobody would be able to get in.

Lose the meaningless gush and point out that the wooden and glass panels echo traditional Japanese sliding panel construction with a modern twist.

Pro tip for advertisers in general. We have all heard 'mindfulness', 'wellbeing', 'wellness' and similar terms spouted by government and state media enough to have grown to hate them. There are trends to follow and trends to avoid.
