The Peninsula Tokyo
What it is
A showstopping ode to excellence with enormous, high-tech rooms; a mosaic-lined indoor pool; and 10 toothsome restaurants.
What it isn't
Lazy. The Peninsula Academy ensures guests can maximize every minute, whether they want to take a food tour through the izakaya bars of the Yurakucho neighborhood or fly a flight simulator over the cityscape in a Boeing 777-300ER.
What we think
You may want to pinch yourself in this heavenly place, which seems too good to be true—but believe us, it’s real. Yes, you can opt to check in any hour of the day (or night) for no added cost. Yes, you can take a rain shower in your marble-lined bathroom with Oscar de la Renta toiletries, no less. Feel like hopping in a MINI Cooper S 3 for a complimentary chauffeur-driven excursion? Your wish is their command. Rooms are equally exquisite: the “starter” category Deluxe Room is suite-worthy, a 579-square-foot retreat in a palette of local blonde woods and sandy neutrals, with a separate dressing room and bedside control panels that control a host of high-tech amenities, from mood lighting to draperies. On the 23rd floor, the 3,730-square-foot Peninsula Suite has floor to ceiling windows overlooking Hibiya Park and the Imperial Palace Gardens, a 12-seat dining room, private balcony and a grand piano. While you’re here, don’t miss at least one treatment in the tranquil spa; we recommend the green tea and turmeric body wrap.
You're here because
The 65-foot-long, zero-edge pool on the fifth floor is calling your name—with its shimmering mosaic tile floor and vitality pool and balcony with a panorama over the Imperial Palace Gardens.
Under the artfully glowing “trees” of the 24th floor Peter cocktail bar, you think you may have just stumbled into Tokyo’s hottest, best boite—thanks to the legion of locals hobnobbing here. You order a sake martini and wagyu sandwich, then decide to settle in for the night. Is there anything better than “going out” when your room is right upstairs?
