Fodor's Review

Set inside a 17-acre garden, the elegant and European Hotel Chinzanso is a sheltered haven in Tokyo's busy metropolis. Guest rooms are some of city's largest, outfitted in muted pastels with chintz curtains and armchairs; the spacious bathrooms have soaking tubs, separate showers, and L' Occitane amenities. Deluxe Rooms overlook the garden or offer pleasant city skyline views. With columns, tropical plants, and a retractable glass roof, the pool is straight out of Xanadu.

In 2012, the Chinzanso ended a 20-year partnership with the Four Season, but its pedigree—as a former estate of an imperial prince—carries on. To take full advantage of the grounds, famous for their summertime fireflies, take one of the six distinct walks the hotel arranges. Note: since the hotel occupies a rather remote section of Tokyo, it is not convenient to other attractions.
