Tokyo Hotel Review: the Four Seasons Marunouchi
Visiting a city as busy as #Tokyo, we were glad to have stayed in #FourSeasons Hotel. Located just a block away from Tokyo station, going to #Ginza, the Imperial Palace and #Yurakucho has never been easier! The comfortable bed and large tub were exactly what we needed to recharge at the end of each day.
On our first trip to Tokyo we were lucky enough to stay at The Four Seasons in Marunouchi. It was an extremely generous gift from a friend!
We rode the Shinkansen (bullet train) from Nagoya to Tokyo and Jun, a member of the Four Seasons staff, greeted us at the train platform and walked us to the hotel (which is not even a 5 minute walk from Tokyo Station). We arrived a bit before our check-in time and the staff had no problem getting us situated in our room and reserving a Tokyo city bus tour for that evening.
The Four Season Marunouchi is located less than one block south of Tokyo Station. It is a great location. The hotel is within walking distance of Tokyo’s Imperial Palace, Ginza (Tokyo’s luxury shopping district), and Yurakucho (an area with lots of cool little restaurants and izakayas).

The hotel is just a short train ride from Tokyo’s most interesting neighborhoods:
Tokyo Station to Shibuya: 17 minutes
Tokyo Station to Shinjuku: 15 minutes
Tokyo Station to Akihabara: 4 minutes
Tokyo Station to Ueno: 5 minutes
Tokyo Station to Asakusa: 18 minutes
The bed was heavenly! It was the first time in six months we slept in a bed (we’d been sleeping on a 2 inch thick futon in Nagoya). The mattresses were California King Size (the only size mattress Blaine’s legs don’t hang off) Four Seasons brand and you can special order them for your own home. The view was nothing too exciting, just the road below and a few random buildings across from the hotel. The room also had a large soaking tub and shower. And even with the giant bed, there was plenty of extra space to move around the room and do morning yoga and such.
The bed was heavenly!
We had dinner in the Four Seasons restaurant. It was relaxing and delicious, but not memorable. For the high price tag, you’re better off trying out one of Tokyo’s many Michelin star rated restaurants.
The staff was wonderful. Anything we needed was just a phone call away. After we checked out, the hotel had no problem with us leaving our luggage with them while we toured around Tokyo for hours. I would definitely stay at The Four Seasons Marunouchi again (and hopefully I will).
