Near the Nishi-Kasai Station, on the Tokyo Metro Tozai Line, the hotel offers easy access to the city's main commercial, retail and entertainment areas. It is also positioned between Tokyo Disneyland and the new Tokyo SkyTree – the world's second tallest structure – and provides free shuttle services to both attractions.

Set in a nine-story building, Best Western Tokyo Nishikasai offers a choice of 184 guestrooms, all with flat-screen LED TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel also has a restaurant serving Japanese and international dishes, and meeting space for up to 80 delegates.

Japan became Best Western International's first ever destination in Asia when the company launched its first hotel in the country more than a decade ago. Today, Best Western operates a collection of 17 hotels across 12 Japanese cities.

Best Western Tokyo Nishikasai is the company's second opening in Tokyo, following the 206-room Best Western Shinjuku Astina Hotel.

Currently, Best Western has a portfolio of more than 200 hotels across Asia. And the company expects to increase its regional collection to 300 properties in the next few years. Best Western first launched in Asia & the Middle East in 2001 and now covers 27* countries in the region.
