Tokyo, Part 3
So I mentioned we stayed in 2 hotels, right? Well for the last night of our trip we stayed at the Park Hyatt in Tokyo. This place is rather pricey which is why we only stayed one night. But I can tell you it was totally worth it. I hate saying this, but it's the hotel in Lost In Translation. That gives you a point of reference. You can picture the pool and the gym at least. The rest of the hotel is amazing. You're treated like royalty. There is a person that greets you when you get out of the cab and somehow they already knew our name. They take you up to the 41st floor to check in. You are given 'Tiffany' keychains. We stayed one floor up from the lobby. We were a little concerned that maybe the room would not live up to all the hype, that maybe the hotel would be gorgeous but a little tiny room. No way. There was a bed you could swim in, 40" flatscreens with great cable stations that played the Simpsons and The Outsiders. There was an amazing view of Tokyo. The gigantic bathtub filled in minutes with luxurious bubbles courtesy of the Aesop products, the flatscreen in the bathroom playing relaxing nature scenes. And the toilet actually had a dryer on it. It's official! Rich people don't even have to wipe their own asses. We had dinner from the famous Delicatessan located in the hotel. But the big splurge was room service breakfast which cost about $75. Worth every penny. I felt like Linsey Lohan as the guy came in with his white gloves to set up the table. I didn't want to leave this paradise as we were handed bottles of Park Hyatt Water in case we got thirsty on our trip to the airport.
