Palace Hotel Tokyo to Open
The 290 rooms in the hotel will be divided into 12 categories, ranging from deluxe rooms to suites. Each room will offer views of Tokyo’s Imperial Palace gardens, and provide complimentary Wi-Fi and 46-inch LCD TVs. Room rates range from $625 to $8,800 per night.
The hotel will feature ten new restaurants and bars, with the goal of several of them becoming Michelin-rated. On the Palace Hotel Tokyo’s sixth floor will be the reopened French restaurant Crown and Sushi Kanesaka. The fifth floor is the home to Amber Palace, a Shanghainese and Catonese restaurant. In addition to these restaurants, the Grand Kitchen will provide all-day dining, and the hotel will feature three separate bar/lounges.
Palace Hotel Tokyo will debut Japan’s first evian Spa, a luxury spa located on the fifth floor, and will also provide eight meeting rooms, a formal boardroom, and 17 retail stores on an underground level.
Palace Hotel Tokyo succeeds two hotels formerly in its location, the Hotel Teito (opened in 1947) which was followed by the original Palace Hotel (opened in 1961).
