The Four Seasons at Chinzan-so is a very pleasant property. The style is similar to that of some of the other more traditional FS properties -- think Philadelphia or Boston. Although the location of the property is very inconvenient, it has a gorgeous and expansive garden that feels more Kyoto than Tokyo. Due to the location, I probably wouldn't choose this property again; however, it is worth a stay if you'd like to escape the hustle and bustle and experience a bit of "romantic" Japan in Tokyo.
A few highlights of the property:
- attentive kind service
- an incredible garden. lovely views of the on-sight pagoda (visible from some guest rooms and from the Il Teatro restaurant)
- free access to the gym (often an extra at hotels in Japan)
- high quality food and beverage. The breakfast was excellent
- a Japanese onsen (hot spring) and relatively large indoor pool (for an additional charge of 5,000 JPY). These are both quite rare in Tokyo
The only real negative is the location. Because there are no trains close by, you will have to take a taxi to get to / from the property. Mejiro station is only 10 minutes away but the property is definitely secluded. Great for a break from the city but not great if you want to be in the center of things or need easy access to meetings (and don't want to take taxis).
If you have always wanted to see traditional Japan but won't have a chance to leave Tokyo, this is a nice way to add a little bit of Kyoto to your business trip.
One potential downfall that I didn't experience is the proximity to the wedding event hall. My guess is that things get pretty crowded in the public spaces when there is a big event.
The property does offer incredible rates right now even though I didn't see them on the hotel website. I received a very good rate by buying an AA Vacations package. Ended up being only slightly more than $200 a night, including breakfast. Absolutely unheard of.
