Tokyo Talking Point

With an incomparable perspective on the city and a singular, moat-side location beside the Imperial Palace, Palace Hotel Tokyo will open May 17 following a US $1.2 billion investment. The new 290-room property succeeds two previous hotels, the Hotel Teito and Palace Hotel that occupied the same site from 1947 and 1961 respectively. Like its predecessors, Palace Hotel Tokyo will preserve its independence and a distinct commitment to homegrown hospitality. Look out for the Evian Spa, only the second outside France, elegant restaurants with Michelin star ambitions and expansive city views.

The hotel 290 rooms will include 12 suites and six categories of guest rooms, the smallest of which will be an ample 45sqm. As a complement to the hotel 23 above-ground floors, the uppermost of four basement levels will feature 17 retail outlets and access to the Otemachi subway station, which will be completed in the Spring of 2013.
