Godzilla-themed hotel to open in Tokyo

24 Apr 2015 by Clement Huang

Japanese hotelier Fujita Kanko Inc will open the Hotel Gracery Shinjuku tomorrow.

As the new flagship property of the Hotel Gracery brand, Hotel Gracery Shinjuku is located in Kabukicho, Tokyo’s entertainment and nightlife hub. Occupying 23 floors of the Shinjuku Toho Building, the hotel is part of a new entertainment complex which offers a 12-screen cinema and various F&B outlets.

The highlight of the 970-room property is the Godzilla-themed rooms, transporting guests into the world of the celebrated monster movies.

For those unfamiliar with Godzilla, the character is a giant monster that first appeared on Japanese media in 1954. Godzilla has since become a worldwide pop culture icon that has even become a part of American cinema ­– most recently in a film in 2014.

Godzilla Room amenities 

There will be two types of Godzilla-themed rooms. There is one Godzilla Room. Located at the top floor, it will feature a themed interior that includes wall panels and a trick wall with special effects. In addition, a life-size replica of Godzilla’s claws will loom over the beds, while a miniaturised version of the “King of Monsters” will stand in the room.

Meanwhile, there are also six Godzilla View Rooms. The interior is identical to the hotel’s standard guestrooms, and these six residence will feature views of a life-size replica of Godzilla’s head on the hotel’s eight-floor terrace.

Given Godzilla’s global popularity, Hotel Gracery Shinjuku is anticipating a significant number of international guests. The hotel will therefore have a designated international guest counter, with staff to offer assistance in English, Chinese, Korean and Thai.
