Summary

I had a nice stay at “Ritz-Carlton Tokyo.” This time I wanted to relax at the hotel, so I was very satisfied with the plan to use the club lounge. The spacious and relaxing club lounge was a very comfortable space without it being too crowded. Snacks, sweets, and drinks were always provided, including alcohol. The rooms are spacious, cozy, well equipped and it was also functional and relaxing. It is a hotel where you can spend a luxurious time in a quiet space that was isolated from the bustling city. I would love to stay here again if I get the chance to.
