Best New Four Seasons Tokyo Hotel
Curator’s statement

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the Four Seasons Tokyo at Otemachi in June 2023 and experienced a peaceful sanctuary that connects you to the city of Tokyo and the history of Japan from every angle of the hotel. All while being surrounded by the exceptional service that you would expect from a Four Seasons hotel.

This property opened in September of 2020 and occupies the top six floors of the 39-story Tokyo Otemachi One Tower. The location of the hotel is great for accessing Otemachi Station as you can get to the station through the Otemachi One Tower, so when it is raining outside you can still access the train station without having to go outdoors. From Otemachi station there is only one stop before getting to Tokyo Station (one of the major train station hubs that is also the home of the famous Shinkansen bullet trains) or if the weather permits, clients can take the 10-15-minute walk to Tokyo Station. As with all subways in Japan, there are multiple restaurants and shops connected to Otemachi One Tower to explore. Check out Ramen Street, or if you are feeling brave, try some Japanese street food like Takoyaki (octopus).

Accessibility Tip: When we were visiting, the lift to get up the stairs at the Otemachi Station to access Tokyo Station was out of service, so if you have a guest with mobility needs you may want to check with the concierge ahead of time if your clients plan to use the subway.

The Tokyo skyline is a mesmerizing attraction all by itself. When you arrive and step out of the elevator on the 39th floor, you are immediately drawn to the view of the Tokyo skyline. Every morning, at Pigneto, where breakfast is served, there are floor-to-ceiling windows and outdoor seating on a patio that overlooks the Tokyo Imperial Palace and on a clear day - Mt. Fuji. All of the common spaces in this hotel share these views and constantly give you that sense of place for staying in Tokyo.

There are 190 rooms in total. 28 of those rooms are suites and 20 rooms have connecting configurations that are great for families and can be confirmed at the time of booking. The rooms have a very modern aesthetic with Japanese touches. The rooms are very spacious even at the entry level. Many of the rooms have the view of the Tokyo city skyline or the Imperial Palace. If you truly want to have a sense of place with amazing views, treat yourself to a corner suite where the floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around the corner giving.

The Four Seasons Tokyo at Otemachi also has a unique Michelin-starred restaurant called “est” that blends French recipes with Japanese precision and seasonal ingredients and again, also has breathtaking views of the city. They have a bar with a masculine design with views of the skyline at night. The gym also overlooks the Imperial Palace grounds and the indoor pool also has views as well as very attentive pool attendants. There is a small spa with five treatment rooms. As you can tell, we were impressed with the views of Tokyo from everywhere at this hotel.

If you are a first-time traveler to Tokyo, it can be a bit intimidating to navigate the trains, sightseeing and culture that make Tokyo the treasure that it is for travelers. The Four Seasons Tokyo at Otemachi is a great option because their guest services team is eager to assist you in navigating the challenges. We reached out to the concierge in advance of our arrival and had them purchase our bullet (Shinkansen) train tickets and help with various other reservations. The Four Seasons Tokyo at Otemachi and I make a great team to help you plan your Tokyo trip and guarantee that all your needs during your stay are taken care of.
