Our Eyes Are Now On Tokyo's Hotel Scene

Where: Tokyo, Japan

It looks like Andaz Hotels made a very good decision in adding Tokyo to their list of new cities, now that Tokyo has been selected as the site of the 2020 Summer Olympics. (The Andaz is set to open sometime next year, giving it plenty of time to get things in order before the crowds arrive. )

As with all host cities of massive events like the Olympics, we can expect many more new hotels to pop up as the date approaches, as well as lots of renovations by existing hotels. Remember London last summer? Insanity.

Of course, we need to contain our excitement as these Olympics are still a good SEVEN YEARS AWAY. Nevertheless, according to the Wall Street Journal, Tokyo plans on having 87,000 hotel rooms available within a 10 kilometer radius, and 140,000 rooms in a 50 kilometer radius. And Forbes.com believes the rates and prices will remain "fair" especially compared to other cities (cough, NYC, cough.)

We just wonder if more hotels will break out special Hello Kitty suites , perhaps with an Olympics theme?

I've been searching everywhere to find a 5 star or LUXURY HOTEL like FASANO, COPACABANA PALACE or SHERATON type for that FIFA WORLD CUP and of course everything is SOLD OUT at the hotels; I finally found a site, paid a HEFTY PRICE but booked it yesterday for check-in tomorrow... I called the hotel today and ALL is A-OK with my reservatin... Thanks <a href="http://14sb.com">http://14sb.com</a> , YOU ROCK!
