To get a sense of the sheer magnitude of this metropolis, you must stay at a luxury hotel that situates in Tokyo’s skyscrapers. Like I said in Ritz Carlton Tokyo, this city is by far one of my favorite places in the world for food, accommodation, and service.
Situated on the top seven floors of the 52-story tower in Toranomon Hills, you immediately escape the bustling noise of your all-day Tokyo excursions and enter into an oriental yet modern Japanese feel inside this property.
The check-in feels intimate in that there’s no official area that separates us and the staff. Welcome drinks are presented to you as well.
We got escorted to the elevators shortly after. Our room was on the 47th floor of the skyscraper building.
The rooms are spacious relative to Tokyo standards. It spans around 500+ square feet with the rooms tastefully decorated with wooden panels.
The bathroom is the clear highlight in this room. It has all the high-end amenities that a luxury hotel should have.
Inside, there’s a roof shower with a very strong water pressure & an over-sized waterfall bathtub on the side. Not exaggerating, I probably took three showers within 24 hours in here.
The main bedroom faces directly to the window, so you wake up to a bird’s eye view of the city in the morning.
Our room faces North, which faces directly to the Tokyo Skytree. In hindsight, we don’t recommend this view because Tokyo Skytree is so, so, sooooooo far away.
Thus, pro tip: ask for rooms facing South. You’ll have an insane toy-like view of Tokyo Tower. Here’s an example of what it is like when we were drinking hot hojicha tea from this perspective.
Another amenity that steals the show is their 20-meter infinity pool. It’s situated on their spa floor. Simply check-in with your room number and you’ll be escorted to the pool.
Goggles, swimwear, and caps are provided for rentals if needed too.
Overall, we had a comfortable stay at this property. It almost felt like a spa sanctuary where you come and re-charge after a busy day in the city.
It’s always sad to leave this amazing city.
I should just move here. There, problem solved.
