Conrad TokyoArguably one of the city’s most elegant stays, the Conrad sits on floors 28 through 37 of the Tokyo Shiodome Building and reflects contemporary Japanese design, not least in the wood-and-brass lobby, where a bright-red abstract sculpture welcomes guests. Modern pieces appear throughout the property, the work of 23 Japanese artists, yet classical Japanese brush paintings also have a place. Each high-ceilinged guest room features headboards embellished with cherry blossom motifs, as well as freestanding tubs and expansive windows with views of the Ginza district or Tokyo Bay and the Hamarikyu Gardens. Though the hotel is convenient to most major sites—it is within walking distance of Shiodome Station and connected to Shimbashi Station—there’s plenty to keep you on site, from the traditional Chinese cuisine at Michelin-starred China Blue to the Japanese cypress hinoki bath tub at the 29th-floor Mizuki Spa.
