Palace Hotel Tokyo

Palace Hotel Tokyo

What kind of hotel is Palace Hotel Tokyo?

This is one of the fine hotels in the world.  If you are looking for a luxury 5-star hotel for special occasions in Tokyo, I would recommend it.  The hotel space will satisfy all your senses with its unparalleled dignity and heartwarming serenity, unmatched by any other luxury hotel. 

The hotel is said to have further elevated its stature when US President Trump stayed here in 2019.

Once we entered the property, we were overwhelmed with the beauty.  In the lobby, which has a faint eucalyptus and citrus scent, modern Japanese paintings and ink paintings are exhibited, creating a very sophisticated ambiance.

After check-in, you wouldn’t feel like going out until check-out time.  We were truly enchanted by Palace Hotel Tokyo.

Is the location easy to access?

Yes, the hotel is connected to C13b Exit of Otemachi Subway Station, but the station yard is very large.   It takes 10min on foot from Marunouchi North Exit of Tokyo Station.

The parking lot is available at JPY2,200.  The valet service costs JPY1,100.

Where is the best accommodation for anniversaries?

If you are looking for a good place for a special occasion in Tokyo, the property would be one of the best.  The staff arranges flowers and cakes to celebrate an anniversary at additional charges if you request in advance.

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend a room with a park view and a balcony.  You can chill out in the room while viewing a peaceful Tokyo city and having coffee.  It’s truly worth it.  From the balcony, you can feel the trees and the sky of the Imperial Palace Garden, giving you a calm and elegant space.  Breakfast can also be served on this balcony.  That’s precious time.  It’s rare to find a room with a balcony in Tokyo. 

On the other hand, I wouldn’t recommend a room without a balcony.  It would take half the fun out of your hotel stay.

Then if you plan to spend a lot of time in the hotel, you should book a suite or a room on the club floors.  You can have access to the club lounge.

How about the club lounge on 19F?

The club lounge with the terrace, amazing views, and the food presentation including beverages is one of the best in TOKYO.  You would be able to see that the hotel management puts a lot of effort into the club lounge.

It’s open between 7:00 and 22:00.
  Breakfast 7:00-10:30
  Afternoon Tea 14:00-16:00
  Evening canapé 17:30-20:00

Then I would recommend having breakfast at the restaurant called “Grand Kitchen” on the first floor rather than at the club lounge.  The view of the Imperial Palace moat from the restaurant is also very special.

Complimentary sandwiches, scones, pudding, strawberry cake, green tea roll cake, orange cake, coffee, and tea, etc., are available for afternoon tea.  Orange cake is one of the specialties of the hotel.  During the afternoon tea, only champagne and beer for alcohol were available.

Then complimentary beer, wine, Japanese sake, shochu, champagne, whiskey, gin, scotch, soft drinks, vegetable sticks, prosciutto, salami, blue cheese, salmon, canapés, olive nuts, seafood ahijo, beef brochette, grilled vegetables, chicken in tomato sauce, etc., are available for evening canapé.  If you love drinking, the club lounge would be a paradise.  There is a very good selection of drinks and food.

After enjoying the Evening Canapé, I would recommend visiting The Palace Hotel Lounge on 1F.  The ambiance is truly romantic, cozy, and relaxed.  Also, awesome piano and saxophone live performance is held every night at The Palace Hotel Lounge on 1F.  I’m sure that you’ll have a wonderful night.

Then if you stay in a suite or the club floors, you can check in and out at the club lounge on 19F.  The parking lot is available for free.  The private room next to the club lounge is available for 2H for free.  PC & iPad are available for borrowing.  The business center on 19F is available.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, bathrobes, pajamas, welcome fruits, chocolates, English bags, green tea bags, bottled water, and a coffee machine, etc.  There were Anne Semonin skincare products and bath amenities in our bathroom.  There are some pillows which you can choose from.  You can travel light.  Also, a humidifier, a DVD player, a CD player, and a BOSE speaker were placed in our room.  Room service is available for 24H.  There are some convenience stores nearby.  The free Wifi reception was good.

Is this child-friendly?

This is child-friendly.  Staff provides pajamas, bathrobes, toothbrushes, slippers, and cribs, etc., for children if you request in advance.  Also, a babysitter service is available at an additional charge.  *One child (ages 11 and under) per adult will be free of charge for co-sleep.

How about In-house Facilities?

There is a nice gym, an indoor swimming pool, hot springs, and saunas.  The gym and the swimming pool are available for free for all guests.  The hot springs and saunas are available at JPY2,500.  If you stay in a suite or on the club floor, they are available at JPY1,250.

The gym is open for 24H.  *A minimum age requirement of 16 applies  You can rent sportswear and shoes at JPY1,500. 

The swimming pool is open between 6:30 and 22:00.  *A minimum age requirement of 5 applies  You can rent swimwear at JPY500.

The hot springs and saunas are open between 6:00 and 22:00.  *A minimum age requirement of 16 applies  

Then there is an amazing spa treatment shop.  If you have a spa treatment service, you need to make an appointment by e-mail at evianspa@palacehotel.jp  It’s open between 11:00 and 20:00.  *A minimum age requirement of 18 applies  

*The above hours of operation often change, so please check it each time.

Then, this is a perfect universal design.  There are some rooms for wheelchair users and wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring someone with weak legs, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they arrange a room near the lifts.

How about meals?

I would recommend a wonderful western buffet for breakfast at “Grand Kitchen” on 1F.  The restaurant has high ceilings and large windows that let in natural light, creating a great sense of openness.  You can choose specialty dishes for breakfast to enjoy with the western food buffet, such as omelet, egg benedict, fried eggs, poached egg, or Japanese breakfast.  Alternatively, you can order room service for breakfast and have it on the balcony.  If you are staying in the spring or fall, this is also a great choice.

Then “Grand Kitchen” is a nice place for lunch and dinner.   The restaurant is very popular among the locals.  There would be many office workers on weekdays because of the financial districts around the hotel.  You may need to book a table in advance. 

Then most of the restaurants and cafes are basically closed on weekends and Japan’s public holidays around the hotel because of the financial district area.  On weekends, you may need to have in the hotel or go to the Tokyo Station area, Ginza, or Nihonbashi area.

My impressions

All staff is impeccable.  If you want to experience sophisticated first-class Japanese hospitality, you should stay here.  It couldn’t be better.  The hotel would be crowded with regular customers all year round.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Palace Hotel Tokyo from the below space.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Booking.com or Agoda
