After traveling more than 8,000 miles (albeit in first class), I was thrilled to check into my room at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo, Roppongi and finally take a breather. While the rooms were small and the views weren’t all that great, it was still nice to be staying in the center of all the action. Taking advantage of my Hyatt Diamond benefits, like free daily breakfast, and cashing in 25,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points for a room that normally costs more than $600 during cherry blossom season only sweetened the deal. Here’s a look inside this stylish Category 6 property.
