In Tokyo where space is premium, most hotel rooms are, at best, cosy in size. But not Grand Hyatt Tokyo. One of the top hotels in the city’s lively Roppongi district – famed for its varied shopping, dining and entertainment options – Grand Hyatt offers rooms that are exceptionally spacious, and luxurious too. You can expect Egyptian cotton linen bedding and free WiFi access; in the bathroom, you’ll find both a deep soaking tub and a separate rain shower.
There’s a sense of quiet elegance in the hotel design. The classic Japanese aesthetic of clean lines and soft palettes are present throughout, while the clever use of natural wood and mood lighting transforms the hotel environment into one that’s modern yet homey.
There’s much to discover at Grand Hyatt Tokyo that goes beyond the indoor temperature-controlled pool and Nagomi Spa and Fitness (complete with a gym and sauna facilities). For a start, the hotel is home to about 200 pieces of art, all carefully curated to fit the theme of ‘East meets West’. Plus, there are ten restaurants and bars onsite. Highlights include the Keyakizaka teppanyaki restaurant, The Oak Door steakhouse, and Roku Roku’s Edo-mae-style sushi and sashimi.
For a commendable Japanese dining experience, head to Shunbou for their kaiseki menus, which showcase the season’s best and freshest produce. While the space itself is gorgeous, what stands out is the restaurant’s policy of supporting local agriculture and sustainable dining – so much so that they harvest their own rice from Kurosawa Farm in the Yamagata prefecture.
Rest assured you’ll be well connected at Grand Hyatt Tokyo. As part of the glitzy mixed-development complex that is Roppongi Hills, you’re surrounded by a shopping mall, a park (with the iconic giant spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeois), and the well-regarded Mori Art Museum. Best of all, the metro stations are just a very short walk away, making your exploration of Tokyo that much more convenient.
