Park Hyatt Tokyo
Nothing gets lost in translation at a hotel synonymous with the cult 2003 movie
Of all the hotels in Tokyo, none is more well-known than the Park Hyatt, which served as the setting for the 2003 movie “Lost in Translation.” Even today, fans of the cult classic flick follow in the footsteps of the stars of this unlikely hit and order cocktails in the New York Bar on the 52nd floor. And just as it is in the movie, the bar has live jazz, ambiance and some of the best views of the city. Spread out over the top 14 floors of a 52-story tower in the city’s Shinjuku district, the hotel’s 177 rooms, including 23 suites, all have stunning views over Tokyo and have been cleverly constructed to serve as an urban home away from home, decorated with original works of art and books.
The Club On The Park Spa and Fitness Center, something of an oasis amid the street-level frenzy of Tokyo, features an 8-by-20-meter swimming pool with floor-to-ceiling windows. The New York Grill has a cellar of more than 1,800 bottles of wine and you can watch your meal being prepared in the open-plan kitchen. The expertly prepared Japanese beef never fails to hit the spot. Alternatively, Kozue is a contemporary Japanese restaurant, while Girandole offers all-day dining that offers a wide range of Asian favorites.
