Hotels in Tokyo

Bold, stylish, sleek—hotels in Tokyo are world-class. At the forefront are the likes of the Park Hyatt (of Lost in Translation fame), the Peninsula, and the Mandarin Oriental. All of this swank comes at a price, but may be well worth it for the outstanding amenities.
One of the best hotels in Tokyo is the Peninsula, which has hi-tech details and a prime location across from the Imperial Palace.
For those travelling with family, the National Children's Castle Hotel is a reliable option. This Tokyo hotel is connected to the National Children's Castle, a huge where kids can play.

At the 202-room Shangri-La, occupying 13 floors of the Marunouchi Trust Tower Main, Chinese touches (gold-lacquered panels; silk embroidery) offset a more modern aesthetic (blond wood; statement chandeliers).
