Long considered the Western hotel in Kyoto, this rambling property, which opened on the slopes of Higashiyama (Eastern Mountain) in 1890, has only gotten better since 2002, when Westin stepped in to manage. It's still the place to stay if you want to make the right impression on your local business associates or Japanese in-laws. Happily removed from the noise of Kyoto's center, it's a short and pretty stroll from some of the city's most beautiful gardens and temples. We have a few quibbles—the executive floor lounge and the gym are both too small—but the 501 rooms, all renovated in early 2007, are bright and spacious and couldn't be more comfortable; we prefer those with a city view and terrace. For runners, this is a great location; ask for a map of nearby wooded trails. The hotel also has a concierge at Kyoto Station, where you can check in, leave your luggage, and spend the day shopping.
