Part of the Japan Airlines hotel chain, the 25-storey Nikko is incredibly popular with Japanese visitors but welcoming to all. The rooms and suites are large, bright and reasonably attractive, furnished with Frette linens, pillow-top beds and pale furniture. Elsewhere, the design is clean with Asian touches throughout - some subtle, some obvious. There's an indoor pool that lets in light through a glass ceiling, plus a gym and a kamaburo (dry Japanese sauna). The Anzu sushi bar and steakhouse isn't a bad place to eat; its Sunday jazz brunch buffet is a favourite.
