The stylish and luxurious Conrad is a thoroughly modern hotel set amongst the modern high rise architecture of the Shiodome district by Tsukiji fish market and Hamarikyu strolling gardens. It is an easy walk by elevated walkway to Shinbashi station on the Yamanote (circle) line for the mains sightseeing loop, and the flagship stores of Ginza are on the doorstep. Step into an oasis of low-lit luxury, with the sleek cocktail bar giving panoramic views of Rainbow Bridge lit up over Tokyo Bay. Their Gordon Ramsay restaurant has now sadly closed, but their new French restaurant Collage features modern French dishes by Michelin-starred Shinya Maeda. All rooms are high up with panoramic city or bay views, with Japanese minimalist motifs combined with modern luxuries such as spacious bathtubs and free wi-fi. One even has panoramic views from the complimentary 25m swimming pool. By all accounts the service levels here are impeccable, and the Conrad encapsulates all that is world class about Japanese hotels.
