Expert Review

Where to begin at this 179-room gem atop the Nihombashi financial district? The lobby is on the 38th floor, decked out with innovative, geometric textiles by the über-modern Tokyo design studio Nuno and boasting stellar city panoramas. Don't expect to so much as push a door handle as you make your way around, thanks to the hotel's exemplary staff with a seeming sixth sense for catering to guests' needs. Power lunch at the Signature French restaurant (with a chef from Nice and an interior by Ryu Kosaka), or linger over cocktails poured by an all-female bartending staff. In the fitness center, pick up a tea blend in a Chinese takeout container. Downstairs (the rooms are below the lobby), slink through the hallways of collection-worthy ceramics, to guest rooms that could easily accommodate two rooms from other hotels. Enjoy a technologically tricked-out room with features like iPod plug-ins and high-def TV, relax on your yoga mat, or make the most important decision of the day: which of the three (or even four!) shower heads to use?
