The Best of the Best 2003: Hotels - Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi

The Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi, which opened in October adjacent to Tokyo Station, is a perfect base from which to experience the city’s energy and vigor. Occupying five floors of Pacific Century Place, a sleek glass office tower, the hotel is located in the heart of Japan’s business district. It is a five-minute walk from the Imperial Palace and one block from Ginza, a shopping mecca.

 

Stunning wall-to-wall windows provide a sense of openness in each of the 57 guest rooms as well as panoramic views of the city. The decor is cool and contemporary—custom wood, metal, and glass—and the technology is superb—42-inch plasma-screen TVs, complete entertainment systems, and printer/copier/fax/scanners.

The hotel features the chic French restaurant Ekki, a fitness center, a spa with traditional Japanese baths, and a fully equipped business center. This Four Seasons may be pared down in size but not service or amenities.
