Park Hyatt Tokyo's Views Don't Get Lost in Translation
We are suckers for a room with a killer view. We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. We will feature our favorites in this space from time to time. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.
Wow. This snapshot was sent in by reader E., who went to Japan this fall and nabbed a pic of this view from the Park Hyatt Tokyo. While the shot isn't technically from a room, he offers this explanation:
A snapshot from The New York Bar & Grill at the Park Hyatt Tokyo, floor 52. Since the hotel starts from the 41st floor, this is pretty much what you are looking at from any given room. Jaw-dropping views, good cocktails, all hushed modern elegance - loved it. It's not the best photo, but blame it on the drinks we had.
For movie buffs (or ScarJo fans): yes, this is the bar where many of the scenes from Lost in Translation were filmed. Um, killer views, plus an opportunity to live out a ScarJo/Bill Murray romance and indulge in potent booze? Sounds like perfection to us though it's a bit pricey.
Rooms here start at 45000 JPY, which comes out to about 500 USD. But in addition to killer views like this, rooms offer deep soaking tubs, Egyptian cotton linens and beautiful green marble and granite finishes.
