The Westin Yokohama has opened its doors in Japan's key southwestern port city and commercial hub.

Owned by Sekisui House, the 373-room hotel is strategically situated in the city's new central business district, Minato Mirai, offering easy access to popular sightseeing spots such as Japan's largest Chinatown and the city's renowned Sankeien Garden. The Tokyo Haneda Airport is within a 25-minute drive and Tokyo city centre is accessible via a 36-minute train ride from the property.

All rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows framing Yokohama cityscapes, the brand's signature Heavenly Beds and bathrooms fitted with Heavenly Bath rain showers.

Meetings and events planners can choose from more than 1,022 square metres of contemporary indoor and outdoor event space including a 464 sqm ballroom and four additional meeting spaces. The hotel also offers the Westin Garden, an outdoor event space surrounded by lush greens overlooking the city's skyline.

The hotel's five F&B outlets feature seasonal and international cuisine with a "locally grown and consumed" approach, comprising an all-day dining restaurant, a contemporary izakaya-style restaurant, a signature grill restaurant, a lobby lounge and speakeasy bar.

The Westin Yokohama's dedicated wellness floor spans 929 sqm with facilities that include Japan's first Heavenly Spa by Westin, along with four treatment rooms, a heated indoor swimming pool and a fitness studio.

Designed by leading architecture and design firm G.A. Design of London, The Westin Yokohama draws inspiration from the concept of biophilia, or the premise that a connection to nature enhances well-being. The hotel lobby features a fireplace and an indoor garden lit to resemble sunlight streaming through trees, as an expression of the Japanese philosophy of "shinrin yoku", also known as forest bathing.
