Fodor's Expert Review Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Kyoto

12 Susukinobaba-cho, Saga-Tenryuji, Ukyo-ku, Kyoto, Kyoto-fu, 616-8385, Japan

The original wooden structure of an industrialist's traditional estate was renovated into the river-view dining room of this woodsy hotel, one of the Starwood chain's upscale properties. The cuisine is nouvelle Japanese served French-style. As with the other facilities here, the restaurant's feel is old countryside resort but with modern hotel conveniences. The Suiran is along the Hozu River, one of Kyoto's main waterways.
