Park Hyatt Tokyo Review

Sofia Coppola's classic film Lost in Translation was a love letter to this hotel, and when the elevator inside the sleek, Kenzo Tange-designed Shinjuku Park Tower whisks you to the atrium lounge with a panorama of Shinjuku through floor-to-ceiling windows, you may feel smitten as well. The hotel, which begins on the 41st floor and continues through another 14 floors, uses soothing neutrals in cream and gray tones to give an understated elegance. Service is efficient and personal, starting with check-in formalities that take place at sit-down desks, reached by walking through an extensive library. Spacious standard rooms include king-size beds with Egyptian-cotton sheets and down-feather duvets; other amenities include walk-in closets, in-bath TVs visible from the tub, black-lacquer cabinets, and 37-inch plasma-screen TVs. The popular New York Grill, which offers live jazz to go with its steak-and-seafood menu, provides spectacular evening views.

    Tokyo Business Travel Heaven

    Recently (late March, 2013, checking out on Good Friday) had the privilege of another most satisfying Tokyo business travel stay at this sublime hotel. (I've reviewed this property on prior occasions for Fodors.)

    This particular three-night stay was spent in my exact, favourite Park View King corner room. I am on the road a fair amount throughout Asia for work, and when finding a room that works for me, I never fail to inform management of my desire to stay in the same lodging for future business stays.

    Seamless check-in upon hotel arrival from Haneda via Singapore Airlines from our home port of Singapore. Such warmth and efficiency from the PH staff; they do remember my preferences.

    The property remains most convenient for meetings. And, thanks to some wonderful and delightfully fun-loving Japanese business colleagues, have been introduced over the years to some rather interesting and joyous nightlife not too terribly far from the hotel. Many thanks, fine Tokyo-based partners.

    Concerning work, will extend the highest praise to the Park Hyatt's unmatched staffers at the hotel's Business Centre. As with my other work-related PH stays with her sisters in Seoul and Melbourne, gracious and much appreciated assistance.

    As always, such a personal check-out, with the expectation of returning soon for additional meetings. This particular Good Friday check-out a bit different: instead of flying SQ home to SIN, or to another work locale, it entailed an all too rare and cherished Tokyo Easter weekend rendezvous with the loved one at the Four Seasons at Marunouchi. (But that's for another review.)

    Thank you, wondrous Park Hyatt staff. Savour your Tokyo times.
