The b roppongi opened in 2004 as the first of 14 business hotels under the "b" brand. Its quirky name is based on four concepts: a comfortable bed, a good breakfast (which nonetheless costs extra), a balanced life, and a contemporary and relaxed atmosphere for conducting business. What this boils down to is a boutique business hotel that is more stylish than most of its genre, with beds that are indeed comfortable and have focused reading lamps. Otherwise, standard and superior rooms are your typical business-hotel tiny size, so travelers yearning for a bit more space might want to splurge on a deluxe room, which offers both more windows and more space. Deluxe Plus rooms have corner locations with even more windows, plus a kitchenette. Facilities are practically nonexistent, unless you count the free coffee in the lobby, but Roppongi's nightlife is just outside the door. Note that the hotel is opening an addition in 2019. Other b hotels in Tokyo are in Ochanomizu, Akasaka, Ikebukuro, Shimbashi, and other locations; check the website.
