This 248-room hotel in one of the city’s tallest skyscrapers—Roppongi’s glass-sheeted Tokyo
Midtown—offers some of the best views in the city, but the interiors are just as eye-catching. The property starts on the 45th
floor and espouses classic European decor, with four colorful abstract works by California painter Sam Francis, each 12 feet high, dominating the lobby. Rooms and public spaces look onto Mount Fuji, the Imperial Palace, and Tokyo Bay; inside delicate woodwork, hand-tufted carpets, patterned chiyogami
wall coverings, a lobby waterfall, and Murano chandeliers set the scene. The hotel proudly touts the most expensive guest room in Japan, the Ritz-Carlton Suite, yours for the princely sum of $16,200 per night.
