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.
