ANDAZ Tokyo is scheduled to open in summer 2014 as the first Andaz hotel in Japan, to be located in Toranomon, a business and embassy district in the capital’s well-known Minato ward.
The hotel marks the fourth Hyatt-branded hotel in Tokyo and the ninth within the country following an agreement signed by the affiliates of Hyatt Hotels Corporation and Mori Building last week.
The 164-room Andaz Tokyo will occupy eight floors, including the top six, of a 52-storey tower in a multi-use complex currently under construction. One of several areas in the city designated by the government as a special zone for companies’ Asian headquarters, the tower’s location boasts easy access to embassies, seaports and Haneda Airport.
“With its central location between the high rise district of Shiodome and the Akasaka and Roppongi areas where many multinational corporations are located, Toranomon is a vital hub for Tokyo’s further development as a global business centre. Andaz Tokyo will both heighten Toranomon’s allure and serve the needs of international firms here, promising the area’s fast growth as a gateway destination,” said Kazuhiko Yamamoto, vice president, urban development, Mori Building.
For MICE planners, Andaz Tokyo will feature an open-air bar and the Andaz Studio, a flexible event and meeting space with terrace seating on the highest floor.
Boasting both rooms and suites ranging from 51m2 to 220m2, amenities include a 20m indoor infinity pool, a spa, a fitness centre, an all-day dining restaurant serving organic fare, and a chapel where a show kitchen will offer made-to-order menus for weddings and gatherings.
