Park Hyatt Tokyo Announces Hotel Upgrades to Begin in 2024

May 8th, 2023

Just in time for its 30th anniversary, Park Hyatt Tokyo will begin a complete renovation on May 7, 2024, and reopen in 2025! The renovation will encompass all of its guest rooms and facilities. The transformation will be led by acclaimed design agency Jouin Manku who will have a fresh take on the design philosophy of the hotels’ notable original interior designer, John Morford. They are planning to create a fresh, modern feel. (This September also marks the 20th anniversary of Lost In Translation, the movie that made Park Hyatt Tokyo famous.)

In a joint statement, Mr. Patrick Jouin and Mr. Sanjit Manku, co-founder and CEO of Jouin Manku, share, “We are sincerely grateful that our studio has been given the rare opportunity to renovate Park Hyatt Tokyo and set the stage for this prestigious hotel’s much-anticipated future.

Drawing inspiration from the trailblazing legacy of Park Hyatt Tokyo, we are committed to creating an elevated atmosphere that will continue to shine as a beacon of understated luxury for decades to come.”

About Park Hyatt Tokyo

Occupying the top floors of a modern skyscraper that towers above one of Asia’s most thrilling cities, the Park Hyatt Tokyo is widely considered to be the city’s most stylish hideaways (a particular feat considering it opened in 1994). It was launched into the mainstream by Sofia Coppola’s 2003 film Lost in Translation, but design aficionados had embraced this design-dream property long before. Alone the fact that it occupied just the top floors of a skyscraper was ground-breaking when it opened). Interiors, featuring a beautifully curated collection of art, exude serenity, much in contrast to the buzzing capital the hotel overlooks. With only 177 rooms, Park Hyatt Tokyo is intimate by Asian standards, and rooms are among the most spacious in the city. Amenities are top-notch and most photogenic, especially the swimming pool encased in floor-to-ceiling windows on the 47th floor, and the three restaurants, which are so in-demand that reservations are often booked weeks in advance (queen of the pack is the New York Grill on the 52nd floor, which sources 3% of the world’s Wagyu beef).
