Four Seasons Marunouchi
Tokyo

In a prime location just south of Tokyo station, the Four Seasons is possibly the only Tokyo hotel we could describe as boutique. As soon as one steps into the sleek, light-filled lobby with tasteful pastel wall hangings and seasonal trees, one can sense the calm and cosy atmosphere of this hotel.

Starting halfway up a high-rise building, the 57 spacious rooms and studios are thoroughly contemporary with a focus on clean and fresh aesthetics, but the Japanese touches shine through in the details. Black lacquer tabletops, 'ikebana' flower arrangements and kimono-like cushion patterns let one know that one is in Tokyo. This hotel seems to have been designed very much with the Western visitor in mind, with free Wi-fi throughout the hotel (still becoming the norm in Japan), and an English-speaking concierge service on a par with the other luxury hotels in this part of the city. The attentive staff even extend their services to the train stations, for they are happy to meet guests at the platform upon arrival as well as provide accompaniment back to the station after.

Other luxurious amenities at the Four Seasons Marunouchi include an up-to-date fitness studio, which is open to guests around the clock, and a spa. Their spa not only offers massages and skin treatments but also houses a steam sauna, jet showers and a traditional hot spring 'onsen' bath.

Dining here is a delight – choose between French cuisine served at the ‘MOTIF’ restaurant or light tapas served in the ‘Gastronomic Gallery’, otherwise simply dine in the comfort of your own room.

Location-wise, this is an ideal place to stay. Set in the heart of Marunouchi business district, Tokyo Imperial Palace in only a few minutes’ walk away as are the gleaming fashion streets of Ginza and the traditional area of Nihonbashi, home to the iconic Misukoshi department shop. Just a stone throw’s away from Tokyo station, guests staying here have access to one of the city’s largest transport hubs with connections to practically anywhere in Tokyo and beyond.

The Four Seasons Marunouchi is a haven of calm to arrive at after a long flight or busy day of sightseeing.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
