Yes, it’s the hotel in Lost in Translation, but don’t choose it for that. Go for the service: after more than 20 years it’s effortless. Go for the tranquility: low lighting, natural tones and a clever design means it never feels like a 177-room hotel. Or go for the views: the hotel occupies the upper floors of a 52-storey skyscraper, and if your room faces west, you’ll be looking straight at Mount Fuji. The rooms are plush, if a little dated compared to the newer faces in town, but the 220-sq-m Tokyo Suite, with its marble whirlpool overlooking the city and a library of more than 1,000 books, is magical. The New York Grill is a Tokyo dining icon, famed for its wagyu and wine selections. The adjacent bar offers tasting flights of Japanese whisky. And if you really are coming because of the movie, it’s the Diplomat Suite you’ll want to book.
