This stunning 157-room stylish hotel offers some of Tokyo’s best views. The beautifully appointed rooms with essential high tech capabilities will make this your home base in Tokyo, and the captivating nighttime views will make your stay unforgettable.
When you check in, this Shinjuku hotel may look eerily familiar to you: That’s because a brooding Bill Murray and a winsome Scarlett Johanssen graced its halls during the filming of Sofia Coppola’s 2003 film “Lost in Translation.” Chances are, you’re in Tokyo for business rather than moody soul-searching, but the modern, East-meets-West comfort of the Park Hyatt will keep you at the top of your corporate game while still immersing you in the solitary, postmodern romance of a perch high above the city’s glittering lights.
You’re in the heart of Shinjuku’s bustling business climate, a ten-minute walk from the train station and adjacent to Yoyogi Park, and the hotel’s business staff can bring you up to speed on this fast-paced metropolis from basic language and etiquette tips to boardroom rentals by the hour. But once the elevators sweep you upwards, you’ve reached a tranquil escape.The hotel, occupying the top 14 stories of the Shinjuku Park Tower, features two breathtaking social spots in the sky — the jazz music and stiff cocktails of the New York Bar on the 52nd floor, and the tranquil bamboo garden in the 43rd-floor Peak Bar — as well as several high-end restaurants. Relax at the Club on the Park spa or browse the carefully curated selection of books at the Park Hyatt’s private library, which sounds like exactly the sort of place where fellow jet-lagged and detached travelers in need of meaningful conversations would be found.
With its prime location opposite the Imperial Palace and Hibiya Park in Marunouchi district, and within a short walk of the shopping capital of Ginza, The Peninsula Tokyo has a well-earned reputation for being among the city’s finest. Rooms and suites are spacious with many offering commanding views of the Japanese capital skyline. Refined dining includes Hei Fung Terrrace and Peter with its stellar views from its 24th floor location. The property features a five-star spa and health club complete with a 20-meter heated indoor pool.
