Founded over half a century ago, the Palace Hotel Tokyo is known for being the only hotel in Japan to have earned five stars for six consecutive years in the American travel magazine Forbes Travel Guide. The hotel, rich with tradition and history, continues to offer an exceptional stay with a focus on the five themes of "harmony with nature," "world-class," "quality for all five senses," "the ultimate personal time," and "sincere hospitality." That multifaceted hospitality is deeply ingrained in the service at the Palace Hotel Tokyo. Let's take a look.
Upon entering the hotel, guests are greeted by a lobby infused with Japanese-modern taste. Light pours in through ample floor-to-ceiling windows through which the Kokyogaien National Garden can be seen. One suddenly feels giddy at the thought of the experience that is about to begin.
The Palace Hotel Tokyo maintains a total of 290 guest rooms. The rooms come in Deluxe, Grand Deluxe, and Suite varieties and boast spacious designs, with no room less than 45 square meters. The interiors, filled with vibrant yet refined spaces, were designed by Terry McGinnity, whose work includes luxury hotels around the world. For a level of uncompromising care that exudes "quality for all five senses," the French skincare brand Anne Semonin and the British firm Bamford are provided for toiletries.
The all-day restaurant, Grand Kitchen, located on the first floor, offers up a wide range of cuisines, from French to Western and Japanese. The expansive interior, complete with a lively show kitchen, seats 162 guests in total. Open-air terrace seats on the imperial moat give guests an opportunity to savor the cuisine and the four seasons at once.
The hotel offers a rich variety of no fewer than 10 restaurants and bars in-house. Located on the sixth floor is Esterre, a restaurant offering authentic French cuisine so renowned that it was listed with one star in the Michelin Guide Tokyo 2021. The restaurant was opened in 2019 in partnership with DUCASSE Paris, founded by French culinary master Alain Ducasse. Guests enjoy dishes that use French techniques to bring out the best in fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Palace Hotel Tokyo brings joy to the body and soul, whether it be through polished and refined private spaces, restaurants that bring guests closer to nature, or haute cuisine with seasonal ingredients. A one-of-a-kind experience awaits.
As a hotel that welcomes many international guests, the hotel can provide halal-compliant menus and loan out prayer mats and compasses.
