Room with a view! All 200 rooms of the Shangri-La Tokyo are nestled between the views of Tokyo Bay, Tokyo Sky Tree tower, Imperial Palace gardens, and the skyscrapers of Shinjuku and Mount Fuji on a clear day! Inspired by James Hilton’s 1933 book, Lost Horizon, each of the 72 Shangri-La properties worldwide boast of a spectacular heritage in hospitality.
The hotel boasts of gastronomical delights and hosts two restaurants: Piacere, which serves an Italian dinner and a choice of Japanese or American-style breakfasts; and Nadaman, for traditional kaiseki dining experience. The Chi spa offers delights like the Samurai treatment for pampering weary travelers and uptown girls! The spectacular building holds 50 chandeliers and more than 20 of them were custom made in Czech Republic.
Two thousand artworks decorate the rooms and hallways, and are said to be inspired by the Chinese poet Bai Juyi’s ode to the healing powers of the pipa. Location wise, the hotel does its best to keep guests connected to the local hubs. Apparently all the rooms of the hotel
arranged according to Feng Shui. The popular modern Japanese remote-controlled toilet (with built-in bidet) is something that foreign guests are most likely to appreciate. Interiors-wise the hotel is the perfect blend of Western and Japanese corporate chic.
