They are renovating this wonderful gem to celebrate its 130th anniversary in 2020 to coincide with the Olympics. I was lucky to stay in a room newly renovated and it was wonderfully beautiful right down to the state of the art Toto bathroom fixtures.

A 4 star hotel masquerading as a 5 star, with 5 star prices. Staff very nice, room and hallways smelled like toxic chemicals the whole visit (maybe they had just renovated?). The decor and lobby is outdated, they tried to CHARGE me for using the pool lol. It would be nice to get some money back, compared to the 5 star we stayed at in Tokyo and Osaka at the same price, a let down.
