Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills

1 Chome-23-4 Toranomon, Minato-ku, Tōkyō-to 105-0001, Japan

A collaboration between New York interior designer Tony Chi and Tokyo-based Shinichiro Ogata, this sleek Andaz property incorporates natural materials like washi paper and walnut wood high atop the multiuse business and lifestyle Toranomon Hills building. Rooms come with skyline views deep soaking tubs, and black-and-white closets and cabinets that recall the sketches of Piet Mondrian, but you won’t be cooped up for long. Snag a seat at the eight-person sushi bar, or dine on grilled snow-aged beef (that is, steaks aged in a natural yukimuro refrigerator of the white stuff) at the Tavant Grill, then end your evening with tea-infused cocktails at the rooftop bar.

Sublime hotel design

The global Andaz hotel chain has a thing for design, and its first location in Japan more than lives up to that reputation. It opened this summer in the new Toranomon Hills skyscraper, which is filled with large-scale art and eclectic restaurants. The hotel replaces the typical front desk with a relaxing natural-wood-filled lounge. Chill here with a drink and snack while a staff member brings the hotel keys to you. The rooms are large by Tokyo standards and have great views of either Tokyo Bay or the Tokyo Tower and Imperial Palace grounds. The flawless design continues through the rooms with baths reminiscent of wooden onsen tubs, natural wood desks and yukata robes. All snacks and non-alcoholic drinks in the mini fridge are free, which more hotels should do.

Breakfast among the bonsai

Andaz Tokyo‘s main Tavern restaurant does an excellent breakfast buffet with all the fixings to please Asian and Western palates. There’s beautiful fruit, flaky pastries, pungent cheeses, rice porridge, fish, meats, omelets and quiches. Did I mention the Nutella-filled French toast? Swoon. Breakfast is served 6:30-10:30 a.m. Some of the hotel rates include breakfast.
