The Westin Yokohama offers more than 1,000m2 of meeting space for event planners, comprising indoor spaces such as a Grand Ballroom and four meeting spaces, as well as The Westin Garden with the city’s skyline as the backdrop.

For convenience, delegates can be put up in one of the 373 guestrooms, all of which feature floor-to-ceiling windows, and the brand’s Heavenly Bed.

Wellness takes centrestage here, as the property features a dedicated wellness floor of 900m2, which includes Japan’s first Heavenly Spa by Westin with four treatment rooms. There is also a heated indoor swimming pool, state-of-the-art gym, as well as a RunWestin programme that provides jogging routes around the Minatomirai waterfront area.

Meanwhile, there are five F&B venues on-site, including the all-day dining Brasserie du Quai; izakaya-style Kissui-sen; and signature restaurant Iron Bay which also has a private dining venue for intimate events. Two bars round up the offerings – the lobby bar on the 23rd floor Sugar Merchant; and the speakeasy Code Bar for cocktails.

Tokyo Haneda Airport is within a 25-minute drive and Tokyo city centre is within a 36-minute train ride from The Westin Yokohama.
