Excellent customer service and a convenient location make this an ideal base from which to explore the city. A massive marble lobby features an unusual spiky chandelier, and spiral staircases lead to the guest rooms. The more expensive club rooms are worth the price, as it includes super-fast check-in, breakfast, Y100 daily laundry credit, afternoon tea, and a complimentary cocktail hour (which actually lasts three hours) during which you can enjoy a rejuvenating 15-minute back rub. For everyone else, a Starbucks and several lively bars are within arm's reach. Look for weekend specials on the hotel's website.
