I'm going to a big party there later this year, looking forward to seeing it!

Is renovated really the right word? The whole building has been completely rebuilt, just recycling some of the old lobby fittings....

Yes, you're right. Rebuilt is a better word.

Rebuilt is correct but the lighting and atmosphere is much the same as I remember before they closed.

Wow! Looks like just about every other expensive hotel in Japan! Not much originality there.

Brown and beige, brown and beige every interior is brown and beige. Looks like a 70's nightmare.

Looks really nice and I would really like to spend some nights there however it wouldn't fit within my budget I'm afraid.

Brown and beige are common colors you encounter in washitsu large or small. I like it in hotels and ryokan, it reminds of private residences and provides a sense of calm.

Lovely to see they've managed to retain the elegance of the original. I worked there as a concierge nearly 20 years ago and was sad to hear it was torn down. This is tasteful reinvention of an iconic Tokyo landmark. Bravo.

Opened after 4 years of renovations? Really? Sounds extravagant to me.
