Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced today the opening of Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo, the first Hyatt Centric hotel in the Asia-Pacific region. Located on the fashionable Namiki-dori street in cosmopolitan Ginza, the 164-room full-service lifestyle hotel offers travelers a home base in a neighborhood where even the most avid explorers can stay entertained for days on end. Interior designer Yohei Akao has created flexible spaces and furniture configurations that adjust nimbly. True to the Hyatt Centric brand concept of putting guests at the center of their own unique travel adventure, Akao has embedded touches of Ginza throughout the public spaces and guestrooms in subtle ways that will inspire guests to venture out and explore.
Designed for a growing segment of millennial-minded travelers seeking curated, yet authentically local experiences, Hyatt Centric hotels provide insider knowledge and resources to put guests comfortably at the center of action. Cosmopolitan Ginza has been a trendsetting model of Japan’s modernization since the late 19th century and remains one of Tokyo’s most upscale and up-to-date commercial areas today. The new Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo hotel enables guests to tap into the neighborhood’s characterful mix of old and new.
Popular with walkers, Namiki-dori runs parallel to the main Chuo-dori boulevard and provides a perfect launchpad for guests to explore and discover Ginza’s diverse shopping, dining and entertainment offerings. Along with modern-day shops and restaurants, Namiki-dori is dotted with art galleries and small studio offices reminiscent of an earlier time. Both explorers and those familiar with Tokyo will find plenty to experience day or night, aided by the friendly and knowledgeable multilingual Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo hotel staff.
Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo occupies a 12-story building on the former site of the first Tokyo office of Asahi Shimbun Company, a national newspaper publisher established in 1888. The featured art in the lobby, elevator, hallways and other public spaces as well as the guestrooms echo the spirit of the streets outside, inviting exploration. The clever use of screens enables art displays to be switched at different times of day, and guestroom floors have alternating themes and color schemes, enabling a fresh feeling each time one returns.
The Namiki Suite located on the top floor has a generous terrace overlooking Namiki-dori and is equipped with a full-sized teppanyaki grill, making the room ideal for dinner parties. It’s also bookable as a meeting room and is 127 square meters (1,367 square feet).
Standard guestrooms are 35 square meters (376 square feet) in size, while Deluxe rooms offer 47 square meters (505 square feet) of space. These rooms are furnished with a multi-function table that transforms the vanity space into a breakfast nook or workstation, maximizing space. King, Twin, and City View suites are all a generous 77 square meters (828 square feet) in size. Each room will feature environmentally conscious bath products by Beekind®, Bluetooth-enabled electronics and salon-grade blowdryers.
Guestrooms on the lower 5th to 8th floors allow daytime views of retro offices, galleries and studios of the neighborhood. From the ninth floor up, the view opens to sky and iconic rooftop scenes. Every floor delivers a sense of place in the heart of Ginza, a modern destination with refined elements of its past.
