ANA InterContinentalIn the ARK Hills development at the intersection of the Akasaka, Roppongi, and Kasumigaseki districts (hence the name ARK), this 37-story tower offers fine views of the city and Mount Fuji. Interiors meld clean, simple design with touches of glam, while rooms are contemporary and come in soothing tones of creams and browns. The 35th-floor Club Lounge is divided into five different zones, including Library, Dining, Bar, and Meeting (club privileges costs around an additional $105 on top of the room rate). Visitors pressed for time can book an executive helicopter flight service to Narita, departing next to the hotel with a flight time of 12 minutes.
