Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi Review

A departure from the typical grand scale of most Four Seasons properties, the Marunouchi branch, set within the glistening Pacific Century Place, has the feel of a boutique hotel. The muted beige-and-bronze reception area—where a very friendly greeting awaits all guests—resembles a comfortable private club, with deep-pile carpets, plush brocade sofas, and sumptuous armchairs. Chic black-lacquer doors lead to spacious guest rooms, where oversized brown leather headboards dominate the entire bedroom wall and part of the ceiling. Design really matters here—but so does high-tech luxury, in touches like the 3-D/Blu-ray TV system and variable lighting. The concierge is possibly the best in the city: don't surprised if you are accompanied to the train station upon departure.

    Exquisite Easter Weekend Rendezvous & Rejuvenation

    We recently (late March, 2013; Easter weekend) enjoyed a long promised weekend leisure stay at this sublime Four Seasons property. That gracious FS service I've experienced for years during business travel stays in Bangkok and our current home in Singapore (along with a memorable Balinese holiday staying at the FS Sayan and Jimbaran Bay properties) came through so beautifully at this sweet Tokyo retreat.

    The timing for this holiday stay worked well. I had just completed a few days of meetings (stayed once again at that fine Park Hyatt; exceptionally convenient for work) and the mrs. was able to coordinate her work/flight schedules for the Tokyo weekend.

    One reason for choosing the relatively small FS Marunouchi was the wonderful experiences we've had at the relatively small The Siam property in Bangkok. A wise decision. The FS staff could not have been more helpful. So personal, from the moment we arrived; seamless check-in and such thoughtful tour and review of our deluxe one-bedroom corner suite. (I remain most partial to corner and end of hall room and suite locations for work and holiday.)

    As with our other all-too-few rendezvous weekends, we stayed rather close to the property and took advantage of her extensive exercise, massage and spa offerings. One joyous evening was spent dining at the hotel's ekki restaurant with the loved one and my beloved sister #1. (Said sister has been a full-on Japan junkie and traveller - holiday and business - since her old boarding school and university days. A delight to have her bring me current with a special Kyoto-based family we've known through the generations - and mutually housed and entertained - for 60+ years. I so love Japan; never seem to fly to Tokyo often enough for meetings.)

    Rather efficient check-out and departure, particularly with her close proximity to Tokyo Station and our respective flights out of Narita. (For the mrs., the all-time cherished Singapore Airlines, back home to SIN, and for me, a first: Asiana, business class, NRT-ICN for meetings in Seoul. Thank you, most gracious OZ stewardesses.)

    Such a personal and special slice of serenity in Tokyo. All the best, wondrous Four Seasons staff at Marunouchi.
