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). If it’s the views you’ve come for, you won’t be disappointed: the award-winning Italian restaurant Piacere looks over Tokyo’s lush Imperial Gardens, while the 29th-floor pool features sweeping views of the city. When you tire of those, head to CHI, the Spa, whose six treatment rooms are the city’s largest self-contained spa rooms, each with their own showers, saunas, and bathtub. Meanwhile, the location is prime: right above Tokyo Station, guests have easy subway access to all corners of the city, while the famous Ginza shopping district is just steps away.
Room to Book:
Premier Bay View corner rooms offer unparalleled vistas of glittering Tokyo Bay.
