The perfect mix of traditional and modern design and service is what makes Tokyo’s greatest hotels the best in the world. These are the city’s top hotels right now, ranging from luxurious to modern, old-world to new.
Four Seasons Hotel Marunouchi
It may qualify as a boutique hotel, providing intimacy and excellent, individualized service with 57 rooms. The hotel is conveniently located close to Tokyo Station and offers a complimentary “greeting” service there as well as, for a charge, at Narita Airport. Large and high-tech rooms are found in this ultra-modern establishment. However, the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows are limited to the nearby buildings or the approaching bullet trains. A fitness center, a restaurant serving farm-to-table French cuisine, and a spa with exquisite Japanese baths are among the amenities.
