Find the best views in the city on your business trip to Tokyo
Finding the best place to stay in Tokyo often means choosing between many luxurious and quality hotels.
But if business travelers prefer an unforgettable skyline view, then a favorite choice in hotel is often the 178 room Park Hyatt Hotel in bustling Shinjuku.
This accommodation is known for its breathtaking views of the fascinating Japanese metropolis just as it is famous for the 2003 Lost in Translation movie.
And because of the abundance of large-framed windows set within this hotel in Asia, magnificent vistas can be taken in from most areas inside.
This elegant hotel occupies the top 14 floors of Shinjuku Park Tower which is a modern skyscraper and is located near to Shinjuku station, Shibuya and Aoyama.
Although the hotel exterior is said to be stark and slightly imposing, inside it’s known to be an oasis of calm, warmth and charm with spacious guest rooms throughout.
Excellent guest service is also coupled with thrilling views right across the Japanese capital and the Kanto Plain to Mount Fiji.
Although some of the best views are enjoyed at night here, in the high-performance fitness club, Club on The Park guests can experience a unique workout alongside stunning views from the glass atrium of the 47th floor.
Facilities on this floor include a modern gym, a 20-metre swimming pool and an aerobics studio with a body sonic flooring system.
For a great dining experience at this hotel there’s the contemporary Japanese restaurant Kozue where on a clear day diners can see Mount Fuji from the 40th floor.
Kozue’s menu consists of seasonal ingredients which make up home-style dishes, plus there’s an extensive sake list.
Favorites on the dinner menu at Kozue include assorted Japanese delicacies, surf clam, flounder, sea urchin, grilled flatfish and traditional Japanese sashimi.
For drinks with a view, the fashionable New York Bar has become Tokyo’s most spectacular hotspot for evening lounge-goers who wish to enjoy cocktails and the largest selection of American wines in Japan.
There is also a buffet here with plenty of appetizers and deserts.
The Peak Bar is also pleasant and has a more magical setting at night with a bamboo garden and paper lanterns. Classic cocktails and the light menu here is perfect for an impromptu drink after work.
This lounge also serves afternoon tea and provides somewhere peaceful to escape during the day.
Suites and rooms at the Park Hyatt Tokyo provide incredible vistas of the city and are all located above the 41st floor.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable and have lavish bathrooms that have been fitted with relaxing, deep soaking tubs.
Japanese artwork is featured in all rooms and suites which adds a personal touch, but generally the rooms and suites are understated and modern.
For business services the Park Hyatt Tokyo’s Business Center is open 24/7 and provides expert help to the business traveler with anything that they may need during their stay.
As well as a full range of office equipment, international mobile phones and a high speed internet connection, this center also provides help with Japanese business customs and etiquette.
There are also translation services and workstations available with computers and all the latest high tech business software.
Two boardrooms that seat 12 people are also available for hire with panoramic views and room service.
For seasonal offerings The Suite Package offers special accommodation on the highest floors in the hotel which means there are views in both directions.
This offer includes breakfast at Girandole (a European restaurant which also serves Japanese breakfasts) and access to the spa and fitness facilities.
