Fodor's Expert Review Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo

2–2–1 Nishi-Shinjuku, Tokyo, Tokyo-to, 160-8330, Japan

Composed of two cereal-box-shape towers, this hotel has a reputation as a business destination that serves its guests with a classic touch. A greeter sporting a black top hat welcomes guests into a marble lobby of generous proportions. The Plaza Luxe rooms in the South Tower (floors 28–33) are large and come with Simmons mattresses, while the Plaza Premier rooms in the Main Tower are outfitted with the latest in modern furniture design—no shortage of curved wood and metal here. For Hello Kitty fans one room is decorated in a tribute to Japan's most famous cat. The Sky Pool (on the seventh floor of the Main Building) is actually two pools, one rectangular for laps and the other circular for lounging; both afford views of Shinjuku's steel-and-concrete skyscrapers. In-room Internet access is complimentary.
