Riding the elevator up to the 51st floor, I already know that the Andaz, Tokyo hotel would be a memorable experience. Located in the business heart of Tokyo, the towering skyscraper is home to Andaz Tokyo, which is only five years old. As the elevator doors opened I walked into the lobby trying to find the check in desk only to be led to a cosy sitting area and handed my check in forms since there was no desk. That was the first sign that Andaz was going to be unique from other other hotels. Their entire mantra is 'personal style' where its all about you rather than sticking to the standard hotel ways. And you can see that from the cultural infusions to the handmade plates used at breakfast.
The Andaz Tokyo’s rooms are divided into four general categories: standard Andaz rooms with king, large king or twin beds; Bay View rooms overlooking Tokyo Bay, Rainbow Bridge and the Ginza district; Tower View rooms with a view of the Tokyo Tower; and Bay View Suites, which have two king beds, separate sitting and working areas, and a huge wall of windows.
I had a stunning view overlooking Tokyo tower. Nothing will ever quite beat the feeling of watching the sunrise over Tokyo whilst I lay in bed.
My favourite spot would have to be up on the rooftop bar with a cocktail in my hand and some soft jazz music playing in the background. Considering it is the tallest building in Tokyo, the view is pretty much going to be unmatched.
BEST SUITED FOR: The luxury traveler who enjoys sightseeing all day but then relaxing in the evenings. Needs to be okay with getting a subway or taxi to main places as the hotel isn't located close to many landmarks (but the Ginza subway line is very close)
