If you’re looking to explore the world with no travel companion other than your fabulous self, you may think the surcharges, sympathetic looks, and stink-eyed waiters sneering, “Table for one?” are a sheer inevitability. Happily, that’s not the case. These celebrated hotels make solo travelers feel engaged, comfortable, and catered to, rather than up-charged.

The Solo Spin: Though Tokyo’s overall safety and the helpfulness of its residents make it a good option for independent travelers, it can sometimes be a tricky city to navigate. Enter Shangri-La, which sends red jacket-wearing attendants to meet and greet guests off the airport bullet train, and escort them through the bustle to the hotel. Also on offer are one-on-one, English-speaking excursions to help guests explore the city. Our favorite? The “Foodie Tokyo” walking tour, which takes you to markets, food halls, and street food stalls all around the city.
