TOKYO, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tokyo Station Hotel announced on July 18 that the hotel is welcoming room reservations now in preparation for the historic hotel's grand reopening scheduled for October 3 (Wednesday), 2012.
The hotel offers 150 guest rooms in its facility inside the Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building, designated as an Important Cultural Asset of Japan. The Tokyo Station Hotel, in its restored brick Gothic building, boasts of its prime location literally a few steps away from all major trains, including the Shinkansen Bullet Train, and has the Imperial Palace at a short distance. The hotel features rooms with high ceilings and tall graceful windows. Guests will be delighted to experience its classic, sophisticated atmosphere and its historical significance. The interior, designed by the remarkable British interior design firm Richmond International Ltd., combines European classicism and modernism to create an elegant and sophisticated space.
The hotel offers six types of very unique guest rooms. "Classic" rooms are positioned opposite to the Imperial Palace ground and designed with added functionality. "Palace Side" rooms are positioned on the Imperial Palace side overlooking the Marunouchi business area. "Dome Side" rooms are laid out alongside the domed roof from north to south, while "Maisonette" rooms offer a two-floor structure, which is rare to find in a hotel anywhere in Japan. "Suite" rooms are generously sized at over 72 square meters and are positioned in the tower section of the building. "Royal Suite," the most spacious room measuring 173 square meters, faces the Gyoko Street that leads to the Imperial Palace.
At the top-floor level of the Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building is the breakfast lounge "Atrium," exclusively available to guests staying at the hotel. The open space, with a ceiling height of approximately 9 meters, sets a perfect venue to enjoy breakfast with natural light beaming through its oversized windows.
The hotel is also ready to accept restaurant reservations for the French restaurant "Blanc Rouge" starting July 3 (Tuesday) from 10:00 a.m.
