Expert Review

Tokyo Midtown, the shopping/dining/entertainment/museum complex has become an overnight success, and we give much of the credit to this marvelous hotel. Ascend 45 stories into the sky to reach the lobby: note the enormous Sam Francis paintings (said to have cost $5 million) and then feast on the view across the world's largest metropolis from the city's tallest building. Rooms are filled with elegant textures from silk to terrycloth, and we also love the bathrooms, larger than entire rooms at Japanese business hotels and perhaps the first bathrooms we'd ever describe as classically proportioned. When you're done marveling, relaxing in the pool or enjoying cocktails or afternoon tea in the lobby, head downstairs to check out Midtown. There are two museums on site - the Suntory Museum of Art and 21-21; visit the nearby National Art Center and you can return home telling your friends you've seen Tokyo's latest . . . until the next latest thing comes along.
