Four Seasons Tokyo



Tokyo seems to be the place to go these days, and especially over Spring Break. It’s a busy time in the city because people from all over the world come to see the cherry blossoms in bloom. When I was planning our trip I had a hard time finding a hotel that would accommodate a family of four in one room. The Four Seasons Tokyo at Marunouchi has spacious rooms, and two queen size beds (which is unusual for Tokyo). Unlike some of the other large hotel chains in Tokyo this is a small boutique property. It’s located minutes from Ginza and next to the train station. Being next to the train station was convenient since we were traveling to and from Kyoto. The concierge helped us through the train station, and assisted in purchasing our train tickets to Kyoto. For anyone who’s been to Tokyo navigating the train station is not an easy task. Prior to our arrival, the hotel put us in touch with a guide who helped us plan the perfect itinerary for our family.  I was impressed by the service, decor, and comfort of the Four Seasons Tokyo. We can’t wait to go back as there are so many more things to see and do in Tokyo.
