Opened in 2014, the Andaz is part of a new generation of Tokyo hotels. Like all Andaz properties, the lobby is without a reception desk—hotel staff checks in guests with iPads (and over a glass of wine, which is always a nice way to start just about anything). No high-end hotel in Tokyo is particularly casual, but relatively speaking, the Andaz is the most laid-back of the bunch. Rooms are crisply done in washi paper and walnut trim, and the rooftop bar (atop one of the tallest roofs in the city) is the perfect place to enjoy a Personal Collins, one of the hotel’s signature drinks and a deliciously diabolical mix of scotch, St-Germain, and matcha.
