Conventional wisdom holds that anyone hoping for a glimpse of the future need look no further than Tokyo; this is as true in the hotel business as it is in fashion, technology or anything else. Here even the big-chain luxury properties cut a stylish silhouette with the kind of good looks that used to be the sole purview of the hipster boutiques, and the kind of high-tech infrastructure and obsessive service that the boutiques never could muster.

Among the major players on the Tokyo scene is the Conrad. In modern-classic Tokyo style it occupies the top floors of an imposing skyscraper, this one in the Shiodome complex, in one of the city’s up-and-coming districts. The experience begins in a speedy elevator opening onto the 28th-floor lobby, a rather monumental space with a sweeping view of Tokyo Bay. Guest rooms are perhaps even more impressive, with novel modernist fixtures and furnishings somehow seeming utterly serious and calmingly conservative, in that way it seems only the Japanese have a handle on.
