We had the great opportunity to stay at the Park Hyatt Tokyo which had definitely been on my list of places to stay ever since watching “Lost in Translation” starring bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson back in 2003. I was not disappointed.
This luxury hotel is located in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo and occupies the top 14 floors of the Shinjuku Park Tower, which means that it provides you with spectacular views of the city, but more on that a little later. Upon exiting the elevators on the main lobby floor of the hotel, we made our way to the main reception area by walking through a quiet, yet beautiful hallway lined with bookshelves and main lobby area that is accessed through a wonderful hallway lined with bookshelves, pictures and art.
The staff that greeted us in the lobby were extremely professional, courteous, and definitely focused on making us feel as if we were their most important guests at the hotel as they paid attention to our every need with ease and pleasure. It is when we got up to our room that the real experience of this lavish hotel came to light.
Upon entering our room we were immediately transfixed on the spectacular view of Mt. Fuji that appeared right in front of us through our large window. This was a really special treat, as not many hotels in Tokyo can boast such unobstructed vies of the iconic Japanese landmark.
Our room, of course, was wonderful and contained every comfort that you would expect in this luxury property.
We enjoyed our breakfast in a beautifully open concept restaurant called Girandole, which offered a wonderful buffet of both Western and Japanese selections. Everything was made to perfection.
The Park Hyatt Tokyo also provides other exceptional dining options for their guest to choose from, including The New York Grill, Kozue – an exquisite Japanese Restaurant, The Peak Lounge where you can enjoy afternoon tea, and selection of desserts or a light cuisine.
The hotel also has fantastic Spa facilities in their Club On The Park which also boasts a gorgeous swimming pool with fantastic views.
Here are some additional photos of the views at the Park Hyatt Tokyo that we took of views from different spots around the hotel…
This is a picture of the main buildings that make up Shinjuku. The tallest building pictured is the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. The North and South Towers have observation floors at the top. From these you can see more spectacular views of Tokyo. Free audio systems provide descriptions of what you can see out of the windows.
View of Tokyo Skytree, which at 634m is the world’s tallest free-standing broadcasting tower. To put it into perspective, the Tokyo Skytree is approximately 11km from the Park Hyatt Tokyo.
Needless to say, our stay at the Park Hyatt Tokyo was absolutely amazing and we highly recommend that you experience this hotel for yourself when you have the chance.
