Fodor's Expert Review The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo

9–7–1 Akasaka, Tokyo, Tokyo-to, 107-6245, Japan Fodor's Choice

Installed in the top floors of the 53-story Midtown Tower, the Ritz-Carlton provides Tokyo's most luxurious accommodations squarely in the middle of the city. High-end indulgences like Frette linens and down pillows are standard in the guest rooms, but it's the simple pleasure of gazing at the Tokyo skyline from a perfectly positioned chair that gives the strongest impression of luxury. The spacious marble bathrooms are equipped with double sinks, at least 17-inch plasma TVs, and deep tubs. Guests staying on the Club Level (two top floors) are presented with complimentary snacks and beverages. The spa has a 20-meter pool, nine treatment rooms, and a hot tub overlooking the city. The Michelin-starred Azure 45 French restaurant and the Hinokizaki seafood restaurant provide views of Mt. Fuji (on a clear day) and Tokyo Tower.
