The list of places present and future to have an Andazm is growing rapidly (hello Munich), but nearest on the horizon is Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills, opening this summer. Most of the visuals we’ve seen so far of the 52-story tower have been renderings, but now we have what looks like actual photography of the rooms.

There will be 164 of them on the tower’s top six floors, which means stupendous views of both Tokyo’s urban maze and, if on the right side of the building, the Imperial Palace in the distance – giving local cousin Park Hyatt some serious killer view competition. A ten-minute walk from Andaz takes you to Shinbashi station, connecting you to the Yamanote line, which loops through central Tokyo and is sure to be one of your main modes of transport when exploring the city.

We love the subtle Japanese aesthetic in the rooms, with the interesting wall paneling, the lantern-inspired light fixtures, and streamlined furniture. All the Andaz amenities we love – free WiFi, local calls, and complimentary minibar – will be there, as well as ‘partitions inspired by Japanese fusuma/shoji’ that allow you to customize the room’s space.

We're equally enamored with the shots of the bathroom. There is a vanity set in a dark slab of wood, another lantern, and a Japanese-style wet area that combines both bathtub and spacious shower, like we encountered at Mandarin Oriental Paris.

Being as high up as it is, there will be two rooftop terraces, which we assume (hope) will be open to the public. The above rendering is all we have at this point, but we’d be shocked if there wouldn’t be some form of seating or food & beverage outlet here. Another unusual amenity? The city’s highest stand-alone chapel. The 37th floor of the tower will be dedicated to an infinity pool, spa, and fitness center.

We can’t wait to check out Andaz Tokyo for ourselves – reservations aren’t open yet, but Tokyo is an expensive city, so we’d expect rates to start from $350 a night if not higher.
