6. Shangri-La Hotel
A relative newcomer to the luxury hotel scene in Tokyo, the trendy Shangri-La boasts more than 2,000 pieces of original art. A blend of traditional flash (massive chandeliers and Swarovski crystal-encrusted tapestries) and contemporary cool (slick restaurant interiors designed by Hong-Kong-based designer Andre Fu, exquisite blossoms by hip Danish florist Nicolai Bergmann) gives the Shangri-La a unique feel. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, with luxurious touches such as fluffy feather duvets and L’Occitane toiletries. The hotel’s complimentary meet-and- greet pickup service from adjacent Tokyo station is a huge plus.
