On March 1st, the Westin Miyako Kyoto is leaving its category 4 roots behind and upgrading to category 5 stardom. They have graciously upgraded me to a Luxury Suite for my 5 night stay this week (at category 4 pricing, of course). I’d love to see this Westin stay a category 4 hotel but let’s be honest, if you have your own helipad, you deserve category 5.
Kyoto is an incredible place. My first sight of the city was awaking to a beautiful light snow. I’m off to go eat my face off at the complimentary breakfast buffet as a SPG Platinum member. Please stay tuned for my upcoming Japan trip report.
