Upscale shopping in a luxury tower
Grand Hyatt Tokyo is a center of calm luxury within the busy Roppongi Hills shopping and business development. Dwarfed by the nearby 54-story Mori Tower skyscraper, the 21-story hotel still cuts its own impressive silhouette in a neighborhood known for its high-end shops, art galleries, and IT industry offices. Renovated in 2014, the hotel still fits in well, merging an art collection in its public areas with popular eateries and high-tech room amenities.
In Roppongi Hills, surrounded by shopping, art galleries, and IT companies
Located in the Roppongi neighborhood of Tokyo's Minato district, the Grand Hyatt Tokyo is inside the Roppongi Hills development complex, surrounded by upscale apartments, restaurants, galleries, and shopping. A large movie theater, TV Asahi, and the Mori Tower, which houses Tokyo City View and the Mori Art Museum, are nearby. It's also a 10-minute walk to the National Art Center and the upmarket Tokyo Midtown shopping center. Narita International Airport is about an hour and 10-minute drive, or an hour and 37 minutes by public transportation.
Large with work desks, Frette linens, and deep soaking tubs
At 452 square feet (42 square meters), the Standard Rooms are large, especially for Tokyo, where space is at a premium. The neutral decor and plain light carpets are elevated by a hardwood floor entryway and mahogany furnishings. Big work desks have an accompanying roller chair and drawers that hide a laptop safe, with an integrated power/charging feature. Beds have Frette linens and articulated individual reading lights. Tea sets with traditional appeal are included with stocked minibars and mini-fridges, though coffeemakers are absent. Limestone tiled bathrooms have high-tech touches like motion sensing lights and toilet seat covers that open when guests enter. Even more impressive are the bathing areas -- they're like small private spas behind glass doors, with an open rainfall shower next to an ofuro-style soaking tub. All rooms come with blackout blinds, and some have views of Mount Fuji to the west.
Nagomi spa and fitness center, seven restaurants and three bars, meeting facilities, and Roppongi Hills shops
The hotel's sprawling 14,000-square-foot Nagomi spa has eight treatment rooms with luxurious extras like private shower houses for its range of decadent body therapies, facials, and massages. It also has a steam room and sauna, though much of it requires an extra fee to access except for Grand Club members and those paying the highest rates. The spa facility also houses a beautiful indoor lap pool, hot tub, and a fitness center with TechnoGym treadmills, cross trainers, and stationary bikes -- the pool and fitness center are free for all guests. There are 17 meeting rooms, including large ballrooms totaling more than 21,000 square feet of flexible event space across three floors of the hotel.
For dining, options abound in the seven restaurants and their accompanying bars, covering cuisines from France to China. The Oak Door fires up premium steaks and seasonal sides from wood-burning ovens, while The French Kitchen starts early with a breakfast buffet (not included) and continues all day with such Gaulic classics as Sole Grenobloise and Boeuf Bourguignon. Chinaroom has intimate booths and private dining rooms suitable for functions or business meetings, serving Cantonese fare and dim sum. Adjacent to the lobby, Fiorentina serves breakfast and casual Italian food with seating on an outdoor terrace. Several other eateries focus on Japanese cuisine, from sushi to Teppanyaki, with Shunbou showcasing local cuisine and market fresh produce on dining tables made of giant slabs of solid granite.
The hotel also has a beauty salon, a business center with laptop rental and printing services, and a lobby shop with the usual conveniences, as well as more than 150 different cigars. Additionally, as part of the Roppongi Hills development and cultural center, the hotel is adjacent to the 200 upscale shops and restaurants there.
