Travel + Leisure, published by Meredith Corporation, is a travel magazine based in New York City, New York with readers all over the world. First issued in 1937, it has become one of the leading international travel magazines with over 8.1 million readers. Drawing on Travel + Leisure 2020 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey results, Travel + Leisure recognizes the best hotels around the globe by naming them to this year’s T+L 500 list. The hotels are listed alphabetically, by region. Readers rated hotels on the following characteristics: rooms/facilities, location, service, food, value.
HOSHINOYA Tokyo opened in July of 2016 at Otemachi, a financial district located in the heart of Tokyo. With two basement floors and 17 floors above ground, it is a “tower of ryokan (Japanese style inn)”. It is common for traditional ryokans to be a single-story building and to be located outside the city but here, each floor of 6 rooms represents a small ryokan and it is piled up to create a “tower of ryokan” in an urban setting. The interior is furnished with tatami (mat of woven straw) and can only be entered after taking off the shoes at the main entrance. Whilst keeping the comfort of modern life, guest rooms incorporate essences from Japanese traditional lifestyles, which include the use of tatami, shoji (paper doors), furniture made with bamboo and chestnut wood. We will continue to convey Japanese culture through seasonal decorations and activities as well as omotenashi, Japanese hospitality, for guests to have a fulfilling experience at HOSHINOYA Tokyo.
