The Hyatt Regency Tokyo is a massive luxury hotel in Shinjuku boasting breathtaking views of the city and Mt. Fuji to the west. Like the nearby Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo and the Hilton Tokyo, it caters to large groups of travelers, particularly those from China and other Asian countries.
The Hyatt Regency is located in Nishi-Shinjuku, about 10 minutes’ walk west of Shinjuku Station and right next to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, Tokyo’s city hall. The closest station is Tochomae on the Oedo subway line, and it’s right by the hotel.
The Hyatt Regency is a vast tower hotel complex, but visitors will be struck by one of the most impressive lobbies in Japan. Three stories tall, its cathedral ceiling and enormous chandeliers hang over wall-to-wall marble.
There’s a lot of empty space here, but it’s tastefully decorated by cherry blossom branches. There’s even a humanoid robot – SoftBank’s Pepper, a household communications robot, is on hand to greet guests.
The Hyatt Regency has 18 suites and 746 rooms ranging in area from 24 to 115 square meters. Some rooms look out over Shinjuku Central Park and, on clear days, Mt. Fuji towering over the distant mountains. Amenities include 26-inch flatscreen LCD TVs, English-language newspapers and same-day laundry service.
The hotel has a swimming pool open year-round, a spa with mist sauna and a fitness center. There’s also a beauty salon, barber shop, 24-hour convenience store and a free shuttle to Shinjuku Station.
The Hyatt Regency has eight eating and drinking establishments, which is convenient because the neighborhood around the hotel is mostly office towers and there’s little activity in the evenings.
Right off the lobby is Caffè, an all-day casual Italian eatery. On the first floor is Cuisine[s] Michel Troisgros, which serves artfully presented minimalist French fare with a contemporary twist. Other restaurants at the hotel serve Japanese and Chinese cuisine. There’s also a whisky bar and pastry shop.
