TORONTO — Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and Japan-based real-estate development company, Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., have announced plans for an all-new luxury hotel in the heart of Tokyo’s bustling Otemachi business district.
Set to open in the spring of 2010, the approximately 190-room hotel will occupy the upper six floors of a 39-storey office tower, offering panoramic views of the city and close proximity to transit routes, shopping, dining and the nightlife of downtown Tokyo.
“A landmark hotel in one of the best locations in Tokyo, this will be a striking property that speaks to our confidence in this city as we meet the growing demand of Four Seasons guests and international luxury travellers visiting Tokyo,” says J. Allen Smith, president and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
“We have been seeking the right opportunity to extend our presence here and are excited to work in partnership with Mitsui Fudosan to introduce a new Four Seasons experience in Tokyo, one that that will appeal to business and leisure travellers, as well as the domestic market.”
Blending contemporary and classic design, the hotel will offer world-class dining through multiple indoor and outdoor restaurants and bars, as well as sweeping views of the city from the 39th floor rooftop terrace. The hotel will also feature a state-of-the-art spa, fitness centre and indoor pool, as well as extensive meeting and events spaces and an Executive Club lounge for business travellers.
