Japan”s capital has welcomed its first guests to the new Peninsula. The ribbons were cut on Saturday 1 September, with members present from the Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels group (HSH) and its partner in the Tokyo project: Mitsubishi Estate Company Limited (MEC).
"The sheer variety of Tokyo's attractions are world famous - not only the bustling streets and booming economy, but also the traditions and renowned culture of the Japanese people,” said HSH chairman, Sir Michael Kadoorie, ”and thus The Peninsula Tokyo attempts to encapsulate all these sentiments in its architecture, interiors, public areas and guest rooms.”
Unlike many other luxury hotels in the capital, the Peninsula is not adjoining itself to high-rise office buildings or multi-use complexes. It is the only freestanding building in Tokyo in more than a decade, located in the financial district of Marunouchi.
Tokyo”s new landmark is comprised of: 314 rooms - including 47 suites, five restaurants, a lounge bar, six function rooms, two ballrooms, a gym and a spa. The hotel also provides a fleet of Rolls-Royces and BMWs.
Rooms are high-tech and include free wireless high-speed internet, multi-functional fax machines and two types of phone.
The first is a wired phone, which can be linked with guests” mobile phones to allow Bluetooth synchronisation to any handset in the room. The second is a portable phone, which functions throughout the room and converts to a mobile phone to place calls outside the hotel to the Tokyo metropolitan area.
The Seven Seas Pacific Aviation Lounge on level 24 floor pays tribute to the history and development of civil aviation in Japan by providing a unique and fascinating panorama covering nearly 100 years of aviation progress. Offering spectacular views of the city, it is ideal for small intimate events.
