Marunouchi Hotel, Tokyo $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Four years after the old Marunouchi Hotel closed down, the new version opened in 2004 on the top floors of the Oazo building next to Tokyo Station. It's a very good value and an exceptionally convenient location, a stone's throw from the Narita Airport Express in the heart of a thriving business and shopping district. Built around an atrium in modern Japanese style, rooms are thoughtfully designedquiet and modern, with soft lighting, muted colors, andin somea separate tatami area. If you can, stay on the Comfort Floors (15th, 16th, and 17th). Corner room 1614 is a winner, with a bird's-eye view over the station and Marunouchi. Breakfast is served at the Pomme d'Adam restaurant, which has a lovely outdoor terrace, but the notoriously strong winds might keep you inside.
