The Artist in Hotel rooms on the 31st floor make the Park Hotel Tokyo a must-visit luxury accommodation in the business district of Tokyo. Each room is custom-painted by different local artists, making each room a work of art. From the hallway to the ceiling, each room has unique aesthetic details that you must see to believe.
Getting there: There are a few hotels with similar names in the area, so make sure to look for the Park Hotel Tokyo, located in the Shiodome Media Tower. It was about a 30-minute drive in a taxi from the closest airport, Haneda Airport, and about 2 hours driving by taxi or train from Narita Airport.
Location: The Park Hotel Tokyo is located in the quiet business district in the Shiodome Media Tower. It is about a 10-minute walk to the Tsukiji fish market. If you plan on going to the live auction, get there very early and maybe take a short, affordable cab ride to the entrance, as the market can be confusing the first time you visit.
Check-in: The staff was very attentive upon check-in and answered all our questions. The lobby is a large, open space with great nooks for reading or enjoying the breakfast buffet.
The Room: You must stay in one of the gorgeous Artist in Hotel rooms on the 31st floor, complete with an Art Concierge and drinks lounge/gallery room on the floor. Looking through their room offerings is like choosing a creative canvas backdrop for your Tokyo adventure. I especially loved the rooms that had design elements incorporated into bathrooms and closets, and even string wrapped around furnishings. My absolute favorite room is the newest addition, the “Artist Room En,” where embroidered string and cloth details come to life all around you, most notably in a gorgeous nest above the bed. The theme symbolizes the interconnected world around us with a red string making its way around the room. Other rooms that I recommend include the “Japanese Angel,” “Wabi-Sabi,” “Cherry Blossoms,” and “Lucky Cat.”
There’s even a pretty painted Geisha and Mount Fuji in the public accessible smoking space off the lobby.
Bathroom: I loved that our Kabuki room had elements of art incorporated into the shower mural and even a painting on the lid of the toilet. The Japanese toilets included full electronic bidet functions. After a shower the mirror even heats up the rectangle perfectly, allowing you full visibility!
Bathrobes and slippers: Yes, bathrobes and slippers were provided.
Wi-Fi: The Wi-Fi was strong and reliable.
Water: Water was provided in the room.
Coffee/tea: The convenient Artist Rooms lounge/gallery room included water, juices, beer, wine and a nice coffee machine.
Power plugs: The only small complaint was that the power plugs were not closer to the bed. The closest plug was at the end of the bed near the bathroom, which just reached the end of bed in our Kabuki room.
Pool: There is no pool.
Dining: The breakfast buffet was one of the best buffets I have perhaps ever enjoyed, including a wide spread of options ranging from Japanese classics to Western eggs, meats and pastries. There were at least five fresh fruit juices and even a yogurt and granola bar and fresh fruit bar. The options varied each day, and the buffet became a favorite part of our day at the hotel.
Fitness: There is a small personal fitness gym on the 26th floor, available with a reservation.
The Verdict: I would highly recommend staying in the Park Hotel Tokyo in one of the beautiful Artist Rooms. The personal concierge, private lounge and breakfast buffet made it one of my favorite luxury hotel stays.
