Tokyo by The MICHELIN Guide

A picture paints a thousand words, and fortunately hotel designers and brands understand the importance of a room with a view. After all, what could be better than unwinding in a sky-high lounge after a day exploring the bustling metropolis, or waking up to a panoramic sunrise from the comfort of your guest suite?

Aman Tokyo

Here is an urban sanctuary in every sense. With a design that marries modern minimalism and Japanese aesthetic to create an oasis of calm, the Aman Tokyo in Otemachi will soon have you forgetting that you’re in the heart of one of the world’s busiest cities. You’ll marvel at the views from the immense lobby windows, from which you can see all the way to Mt. Fuji on a clear day—if you can tear your eyes away from the stunning interior, that is.
The lounge is designed to evoke a Japanese paper lantern, with soft light streaming down from the ceiling.
This feeling of tranquil elegance is carried through to the guestrooms, where a Japanese-style sunken bath and floor-to-ceiling windows are tucked discreetly behind a traditional paper screen.
Relax and rejuvenate at one of Tokyo’s most comprehensive pool and spas, and take advantage of complimentary wellness classes to complete the blissful experience.

Conrad Tokyo

Situated on the top floors of a skyscraper in the Shiodome District, the Conrad is easily accessible from Tokyo’s business districts yet is somewhat removed from the city’s hustle and bustle.
Guests are treated to views of both Tokyo Bay and the exquisite Hamarikyu Gardens, which sit at the foot of the hotel. Guestrooms feature modernist touches combined with the charm of Japanese motifs, with bathrooms that come complete with freestanding tubs and separate shower.
Be sure to try out the beautiful 25-meter-long swimming pool in the spa area, too.
For the ultimate indulgence at the end of the day, head to the 28th floor to the appropriately-named TwentyEight bar and drink it all in—both the signature cocktail in your hand and the Tokyo skyline spread out before you.

Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel

Shibuya deserves its reputation as one of Tokyo’s best entertainments areas for visitors. Amidst the exciting, albeit chaotic district, the Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel rises like a beacon of serenity, far removed from the crowds below. The hotel occupies the top half of the Cerulean Tower, with a tasteful and understated design that soothes and relaxes.
Depending on which side of the tower you’re staying in, enjoy spectacular views of Shinjuku, Roppongi, Tokyo Tower, Ebisu, and Tokyo Bay. But for the best seat in the house, head to the 40th floor to dine on Provençal cuisine or sip on your favorite beverage in the lounge.

Mandarin Oriental Tokyo

The sophisticated elegance of the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo aligns perfectly with its location in Tokyo’s financial sector of Nihonbashi.
The splendid views begin from the moment you alight on the 38th floor, where a two-story picture window behind the check-in area reveals the Tokyo Skytree and the surrounding cityscape.
The views aren’t the only thing that will take your breath away, however, as the array of restaurants is outstanding and the hardest part will be making a choice from among the top-notch eateries on offer. If it’s relaxation you’re after, seek out the Sense Tea Corner on the 37th floor and bliss out with a cup of fragrant tea as you gaze down on the beating heart of the city below.

Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo

Location, location—when it comes to beauty and convenience, it doesn’t get much better than the Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo, with the elegant Imperial Palace in front and Tokyo Station practically next door. The station can be daunting even for seasoned travelers, so take advantage of the hotel’s meet-and-greet service to escort you straight to your sky-high haven.
Once you’ve settled into your beautiful room, enjoy birds-eye view of some of Tokyo’s most iconic sights: the famous bullet trains which speed in and out of the station with clockwork precision, the immaculately landscaped grounds of the palace, or the changing hues of the Tokyo Skytree illuminations lighting up the night sky.
Indulge further with a massage or treatment at the spa or partake of one of Tokyo premier teas in the Lobby Lounge on level 28.
