Address: 3-7-1-2 Nishi Shinjuku, Shinjuku, Tokyo 163-1055
Overview: While you will spend a pretty penny to stay here, in my opinion it is totally worth it if you can swing it. The service and facilities more than live up to their five-star rating.
My Experience: I have stayed at this Shinjuku hotel several times, and every time my stay was perfect (and no, they’re not paying me to say that). Literally perfect. (As it should be, because as a top-of-the-line 5-star hotel, Park Hyatt Tokyo not only has high standards to maintain, they charge premium prices.) The rooms are modern, large and very private, and because the hotel starts on the 40th floor of the Shinjuku Park Tower, all rooms offer incredible views of Tokyo (not to mention they all have oversized wall-to-wall windows). I like to stay here at the end of my travels in Japan, to unwind, pamper myself, and just put a nice bow on the whole trip. Park Hyatt Tokyo really is like icing on the cake, and this is literally my favorite hotel in the world so far.
Tip: If you take a taxi to the hotel, be sure to specify Park Hyatt Tokyo (in other words, use the full hotel name), as there are other Hyatt hotels in Tokyo.
