TEL: 81-3/3211-5211

Set apart from the city’s skyscrapers, its trillion lights twinkling in the distance like some futuristic fever dream, the 290-room Palace Hotel Tokyo stands out not with blatant bling but whispered serenity. With a reported 10-figure investment, the new 23-story building has replaced the historic Palace Hotel on the banks of the Wadakura-bori moat, which surrounds the Imperial Palace grounds. And it is, in its considered details, the most Japanese of the city’s luxury hotels: the wall of gray aji stones in the entrance, meant to inspire calm; the balletic formality of the service; the understated plushness of the rooms; the lovely green calm of the Imperial Gardens just beyond your hotel window.

Room to Book:

Ask for a Deluxe Balcony Room on the 17th floor. You can sit outside and take in the Imperial gardens from above.

Insider Tip:

The tucked-away outdoor terrace at the Lounge Bar Privé makes for an ideal cocktail spot. Head there in the early evening and watch the sun set over the Imperial Palace Plaza.
