Tokyo is undoubtedly a HUGE metropolis!

Rest assured, I’ve been to Tokyo several times already by now, and I can guarantee that if you’re looking for a comfortable and luxurious staycation that goes beyond the norm, the rising Park Hotel Tokyo in the district of Minato is your best bet!

You definitely can’t go wrong with them. Here’s why…

About Park Hotel Tokyo

Park Hotel Tokyo: Shiodome

A Prime Estate at the Perfect Location. A well-acclaimed 4-star luxury hotel, Park Hotel Tokyo is nestled within the Shiodome Media Tower which is located in a flourishing center of Minato. That being said, the hotel is smacked right in an area that is very accessible to all major train stations in Tokyo (such as the JR Line) through train stops of Shimbashi and Shiodome. In fact, the hotel perfectly faces the iconic Tokyo Tower, along with a great unobstructed view of Mt. Fuji in the distance. Other popular things to do in Tokyo such as visiting the spots of Tsukiji Market, GinzaOdaibaRoppongi, and MANY others can even be easily done in minutes when you stay in Park Hotel Tokyo!

Fit for Any Kind of Traveler and Trip Style. As a world-class accommodation, Park Hotel Tokyo caters to an international clientele of ALL ages and types. No matter if you’re on a business trip, a family vacation, an escapade with friends, or on a romantic getaway with your loved one, the hotel can fit whatever kind of service and room that you may need.

Unique Rooms. Speaking of rooms, Park Hotel Tokyo is known for its vibrant and unique “Artist Rooms” — but sure enough, you have the option to go for standard rooms too. What’s more, you can also request rooms that have a clear view of the Tokyo Tower!

Rooms

As I’ve mentioned, Park Hotel Tokyo is famous for its Artist Rooms; as the name goes, these are rooms that have been individually transformed into one-of-a-kind artistic living abodes. There are over 27 of these spaces and selected Japanese artists have painted on the walls and ceilings while staying at the hotel as they try to embody the “beauty of Japan.”

I was able to stay in a striking red Artist Queen Room called “Wabi-Sabi” that was painted by the Japanese artist, Conami Hara. Apparently, the murals on the wall which she called karesansui (arid landscape) representing the universe. She did this in the hope that guests will sense as though they’re staying in miniature universes.

As a guest of this room, I can definitely say that she succeeded in emitting that kind of feeling because my stay here was not only magical but surreal!

    I have been lucky to visit Tokyo several times for business (and pleasure too!) and have always been impressed by the hotels I stay in. They have their own distinct feel. I’m usually totally jetlagged and therefore spend a lot of time in my room in between stints of eating and I always feel at home!
