Andaz Tokyo strikes the era-straddling gong of old and new in the glitzy Toranomon Hills precinct via both trad and up-to-the-minute design elements.
There’s no doubting Tokyo is an ultramodern megalopolis, but this sprawling hub of bustle and buzz sure knows how to respect her elders, taking pride in her timeworn temples and old Edo relics alongside tech innovations and futuristic fashion. Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills draws inspiration from this delicate Nipponese balance, creating a home-away-from-home experience that’s as up-to-the-minute as Akihabara but as welcoming as a rustic ryokan.
Sitting pretty above the city atop the sparkly 52-storey Toranomon Hills building, the Andaz’s address couldn’t be more cutting edge, with spacious, skyline vista rooms featuring plenty of traditional touches like walnut wood surfaces, washi paper partitions and large onsen-inspired soaking tubs. Get wet at 37th-floor AO Spa with 65-ft, Imperial Palace-view pool, carbonated jet bath and the Blend Bar for bespoke beauty treatments, then zip higher still for glassy Andaz Tavern and the tower’s tippy-top, crowning glory Rooftop Bar. Cho saikou!
Andaz Tokyo, 1-23-4 Toranomon, Minato-ku, +81 3 6830 1234, tokyo.andaz.hyatt.com
