This is the Grand Dame Hotel of Tokyo, like the Peninsula of Hong Kong, the Raffles of Singapore, and the Mandarin Oriental of Bangkok, this hotel has a sense of history and a long list of illustrious guests.
The property is large, occupying an entire block, so expect to walk a bit from reception to the room. Service was very good and understated, the staff serve with Japanese humility and a deep sense of pride.
You cannot expect modern clean lines here, the architecture is stately, and the halls long cavernous, with the Frank Lloyd Wright chairs in heavy woods giving it a formal atmosphere.
Breakfast buffet on the top floor offer breathtaking views of the imperial Palace.
Location is very convenient. Go eat at Midori Sushi a short walk away; the lunch queue starts at 10.40am. Bar High Five is across the road, voted one of the best bars in Tokyo, although my drink was disappointing.
