On my most recent trip to Japan, I stayed at several amazing properties — the St. Regis Osaka and the Grand Hyatt Tokyo, Roppongi, among others. One of my favorite properties was the Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills, and for good reason. After being upgraded to a Large Tower King room thanks to my Hyatt Diamond status, I was thrilled with the room itself and its spectacular view of Tokyo. The large king bed was beyond comfortable, and the Andaz-specific perks like free Wi-Fi and a complimentary mini bar helped to push the stay to the next level. Oh, and the spa was amazing, too. Check out the full episode below to see what my full experience was like at this Hyatt Category 6 property in a quieter neighborhood of Tokyo.
