Located in the Shinjuku district, The Park Hyatt Tokyo opened its doors in 1994. It was one of the very few luxury hotels of an international chain in the city. Today, Park Hyatt occupies the top 14 floors of the 52-storey Shinjuku Park Tower that is designed by the internationally acclaimed architect, the late Dr. Kenzo Tange.


The overall look and feel of the hotel is quite elegant and modern combined with traditional Japanese elements. The hotel’s luminous lobby gives a fresh feel. It has the clean-lined design scheme, featuring muted hues of deep green marbles, brown and grey granites, and an abundance of windows and mirrors providing a relaxing ambience. Guests can enjoy some spectacular views from its glass-roofed giant atrium that is surrounded by several bars and lounges.


The hotel is at a short distance from Shinjuku Station, which is one of the busiest stations in Tokyo. Additionally, it is conveniently connected to Tokyo’s well-known entertainment hubs.


The hotel offers 177 stylish rooms in different categories such as Standard rooms, and suites —  Park, Governor, Diplomat, Tokyo and Presidential. Its 590 sq ft Standard rooms are some of the most spacious rooms in Tokyo. The decor features fine woodwork, hand-tufted carpets and natural-fibre woven wall coverings. The highlights are the bathrooms in marble and granite boasting double sinks, a tub, and a separate shower. Additionally, baths are also equipped with AESOP body and hair care products. The pantry is packed with a Nespresso machine, an extensive selection of snacks, and Sencha green tea among others. Other perks include a smart workspace, data port and voicemail options.


The property has five restaurants, two bars and a patisserie. The New York Grill is a stunning open kitchen restaurant serving a wide range of fresh seafood options; Kozue is perfect to enjoy some authentic Japanese dishes; its all-day dining Girandole focusses on French brasserie-style and Asian menus. For a post-work drink or two, The Peak Lounge on the 41st floor is a spectacular venue offering live music and jazz evenings.
