    Visitors arrive at The Peninsula Tokyo in green Rolls-Royce Phantoms, the Hong Kong–based hotel group’s signature cars. Managers then usher their guests into the hotel’s cavernous lobby, where Japanese businessmen from the neighboring Marunouchi financial district and women in high heels drink cocktails beneath a transfixing concave light fixture that sparkles with 1,313 bulbs. The 24-story hotel, which opened in 2009, is just a few minute walk from the Ginza shopping district. The hotel, which is decorated with captivating artwork, features The Peninsula Spa by ESPA, an expansive health club with an indoor pool, five restaurants, and a penthouse bar decorated with polished chrome trees. The Peninsula’s 314 rooms, including 47 suites, feature natural details such as sliding horse-chestnut doors and woven cedar on the ceiling. Washi paper panels painted with golden sakura (cherry blossom) patterns adorn the hotel’s Peninsula Suite, which includes a private gym, a library, and a Japanese tea-ceremony room with tatami floor coverings. Rates Suites start at about $1,060 to $15,000 for The Peninsula Suite.
