I travel frequently and stay in many five star hotels especially in Asia where you can find tower after tower of sleek modern hotels. At some point they become indistinguishable, even monotonous. Step into the Okura Hotel and you're stepping back in time to the 1960s. Years ago I would not have expected to have missed this era in design. I was wrong. The design is simple but not austere. Ochre colors, light wood, open space welcome you to the lobby.
The rooms are spacious, tasteful, simple and unadorned. I think some of the rooms, some of the walls and some of the carpets could be renovated but I wouldn't change their styling much (concededly merely a matter of personal taste).
Service is excellent - white glove. The Japanese food is traditional, refined and excellent.
A reviewer predicted that this classic 1960s building will outlast the increasingly fungible and indistinct modern towers one finds so often with modern luxury hotels. I only can hope such a view proves true. The Okura represents an experience you increasingly can't find anywhere else.
