Kimpton Shinjuku Tokyo
What it is
A 151-room tower retreat with a rooftop bar, two New York-inspired restaurants, and doting service.
What it isn't
Lacking in treats. Kimpton famously provides evening cocktail hours, gratis coffee and tea, zippy free wifi and so much more.
What we think
Pet lovers across the globe flock to Kimpton for their five paw service (pets are not only tolerated here, but pampered with loaner beds, bowls, treats and more.) But for guests who long to be coddled as much as a Collie, Kimpton provides, too. In-room amenities here include robes printed by Japanese artists; yoga mats; toiletries by Atelier Bloem; bluetooth loaner speakers; locavore mini bars; and rain showers in the minimalist, art-dotted guest rooms. Rooms begin at 301 square feet but feel expansive, thanks to their airy tray ceilings, inky wood headboards that pan one wall, and placid feel. The 559 square foot Premier Suite King is a gem—thanks to a separate living space, floor to ceiling windows and egret-eye views of Yoyogi Park and Shinjuku Central Park.
You're here because
You love a rooftop bar, especially one with such jaw-dropping skyline views. “86” was inspired by New York City’s prohibition-era Chumley’s bar and has cocktails that feel a bit naughty—like the NY Junk Star, with blueberry gum infused gin and ginger beer.
You’re as caffeine-addicted on vacay as you are at work, which is why you’re so glad to find The Jones Cafe awaiting you at the hotel (after plenty of gratis cuppas in the lobby, of course). This one has the ultimate kick-starter to add to your coffee order: truffle salt cheesecake with champagne sauce.
