Designed by Yoshiro Taniguchi, this well-regarded modernist hotel opened in 1962. It is located near the United States Embassy hosting every President of the United States since Richard Nixon. The original wing was demolished in 2015 causing an outcry. Many interior elements of the lobby were painstakingly recreated by Yoshio Taniguchi, the son of the original designer.
