Like most of Tokyo’s luxury lodgings, the Hong Kong
–based hotel company’s only property in Japan occupies the top 11 floors of a prominent skyscraper, this time the Marunouchi Trust Tower Main Building. It offers direct access to Tokyo
Station, the terminus of the Shinkansen bullet train network—and also looks onto the Marunouchi business district, the Imperial Palace, Shinjuku’s skyscrapers, Tokyo Skytree and, on a clear day, Mount Fuji—but the real reason to stay here is the stunning interiors. André Fu oversaw the Horizon Club Lounge, with its velvety upholstery and inlaid wood finishes, as well as two of the restaurants. Don’t miss the Lobby Lounge chandelier: Each of its handmade glass pieces is shaped like a gingko leaf, symbolic in Japanese culture for longevity. Elsewhere, arrangements by Nicolai Bergmann, one of Japan’s most lauded flower artists, add vibrancy to public spaces and guest rooms that balance subdued color palettes and clean-lined furnishings.
