The tagline of this refined luxury hotel near Ginza — "fifty-seven rooms fifty-seven steps from Tokyo Station" — is spot-on (hotel porters will even meet hotel guests on the Narita Express platform). Its intimacy practically guarantees personal service, and in Four Seasons style, the expert staff pampers guests without being cloying. Thanks to the landmark skyscraper location and floor-to-ceiling windows, every room has a view, but the best accommodations are those that overlook the city's main train station — and the sleek and shiny shinkansens (bullet trains). The décor is contemporary minimalist throughout, accented with dramatic Oriental flower arrangements and a mix of sumptuous fabrics. Don't miss a soak in the hotel spa's traditional onsen bath, a workout in the sky-high fitness center, or a tour of the nearby Tsukiji Fish Market, where a hotel staff member will escort you and offer insider advice. There, for breakfast, try the freshest sushi in the world.

Insider Tip:Indulge in a "Tokyo Chic Afternoon Tea," with mini Wagyu burgers, Japanese-style pastries, and churros, at the Ekki Bar & Grille.

Room to Book: One-Bedroom Suites are located on the corners of the hotel and feature oversize bathrooms with beautiful spoon-shaped tubs.
