On the east side of Tokyo Station, the Shangri-La Hotel, Tokyo debuted in 2009. It’s pretty similar to every Shangri-La in the world, down to the pumped-in scent. It occupies the top 11 floors of the 37-story Marunouchi Trust Tower Main and has a Chinese theme throughout, including on the menu of the Lobby Lounge (one of three dining options). The rooms, impeccable and comfortable, are designed by California-based Hirsch Bedner Associates. (Again, not very Japanese.) Guests on the 36th and 37th floors (37 rooms total) have access to the Horizon Club lounge, which provides services like in-room shopping, so overseas guests can browse for luxury watches at the Daimaru Tokyo department store without leaving the hotel. (Rooms, from $560)
