Tokyo Debut For Luxury Collection

Starwood’s Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts arrives in Tokyo with the opening of The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho. Occupying the upper floors of the new Tokyo Garden Terrace Kioicho mixed-use development, the hotel is situated in the geographical center of Tokyo and conveniently accessible from Tokyo Station, Tokyo (Narita) and Tokyo (Haneda) airports.

 

Designers Rockwell Group Europe were inspired by the sprawling sky and kaleidoscopic colours of the city to create a striking contemporary aesthetic for the property. Visitors and guests are greeted by a duplex lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing panoramas of central Tokyo.

 

250 guestrooms and suites are luxuriously appointed with fine bedding, marble bathrooms, the latest in-room technology and day beds positioned next to large single pane windows that frame the view outside like a painting. As the hotel’s name suggests, this is intended to provide guests with a sense of artistry while also evoking a feel of levitation as they look down on the city below.

 

The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho features 6 unique restaurants and bars. The all-day dining Oasis Garden is unique with its sky garden setting, while fine-dining restaurant Washouku Souten offers a comprehensive Japanese dining experience with a contemporary dining room, sake bar, teppanyaki area, sushi counter and private dining room. The sophisticated Levita Sky Gallery Lounge, serves afternoon tea, light snacks and cocktails in a grandiose setting and signature The Bar illumiid is distinguished by a refined setting and floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

 

The adjacent Akasaka Prince Classic House, a western-style heritage building and former residence of the last crown Prince of Korea, is now home to modern French bistro La Maison Kioi and the cosy Bar Napoleon. Preserving the historical ambience with a modern twist, Akasaka Prince Classic House also offers an elegant banquet hall that can accommodate up to 140 guests.

 

Other facilities include a state-of-the-art business centre and the Kioi spa & fitness centre, operated by Swiss Perfection, which offers a large indoor pool, spa treatments, sauna and personal training.

 

The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho doubles The Luxury Collection’s portfolio in Japan, following the debut of Suiran which opened in Kyoto last year. It also becomes the fourth Starwood property in the greater Tokyo area, joining The Westin Tokyo, Sheraton Miyako Tokyo and Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay.
