This lounge is definitely facing east. You're looking directly at the Toranomon Hills Mori Tower, on the left is Toranomon Hills Business Tower. If you want to see Tokyo Tower, you would have to crane to the right.

Also having a separate bathroom instead of having the sink in the main room.


But as the andaz was built 2014 I'd imagine it's starting to show some age, compared with a brand new hotel.
Andaz is still pretty pristine for its age.

It is also Japan, so things tend to be better taken care of than other places.

If location, then Ginza.
If new car smell, then Toranomon Hills.

Staying here in two weeks and trying to plan the best way to get to Narita from this hotel with luggage. Doesnt look like there are direct busses at the moment, can I walk to the Andaz and take the limousine bus from there? Or just bite the bullet and take a taxi?

From the photos, the rooms looks awfully small, even smaller than the photos I've seen of Hyatt Place Kyoto. And while it's nice to have a lounge, the seating arrangement reminds me of an airport business class lounge, one of the less spacious ones. On points, I still can't see the rationale of choosing this over the Andaz.

I can't imagine what a base King room looks like if that's a Deluxe.

I would take train to Shinbashi, get a taxi afterwards. Taxi is not that expensive anyway.

Just checked in last night. Some quick thoughts:
  • Love the overall design of the place. Feels like a lighter PHNY, or more cozy Andaz 5th Ave, or a more muted Andaz Tokyo
  • Corner Suite King is a true 1 bd suite (60sqm) with a decently spacious living room and a combination shower and bath tub
  • Minibar except alcohol is free, which is great (unclear if this applies for non-suite rooms - front desk implied it was free because of the room I was in)
  • Breakfast was very high quality. For 6600 JPY, you get 1 a la carte item from a small menu (avo toast, eggs, asian breakfast noodles among the ~6 or so options), espresso drinks / tea / juice, and a great breakfast buffet. Tasty pastries, jams, cold cuts, yogurt, and condiments
  • Only criticism I have of the breakfast is that it was very western - some more asian options couldve been nice
  • Service has been excellent so far. Seems like they imported some pretty experienced folks from other properties - service during breakfast was attentive and polished, but not overbearing
  • Overall, a great value for current prices, especially with globalist breakfast. Currently only around ~450 (before taxes/fees) during cherry blossom season for a base room

Curious about what the Corner Suite looks like. Would it be possible to share some pictures?

Probably will take some time for them to get feedback and make adjustments at breakfast. They do advertise contemporary European cuisine created by Sergio Herman.
