Imperial Hotel Tokyo

Feb 9, 2015

For more than a century, Imperial Hotel, Tokyo has been a meeting place for the world’s glamorous and powerful. Everyone from Marilyn Monroe to visiting presidents have stayed here. The hotel pairs Japanese minimalism with the more flamboyant vision of Frank Lloyd Wright, who designed the unique Art Deco elements with carved oya stone. Every amenity is here, including a fitness center, sauna, spa and no fewer than 18 F&B venues. Our favorite feature? The traditional three Toko-An tea ceremony rooms, with traditional tatami mat floors, kimono-clad servers and scrupulous attention to detail, is absolute perfection.
