Andaz Tokyo to Open on June 11th, Here's What to Expect
Not much longer to wait!
The Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills will officially open its doors on June 11, making it the first Andaz in Japan and the 12th Andaz hotel overall. Here are a few words from the hotel's general manager:
“We are thrilled to introduce the Andaz brand to this exciting city to become a bridge between Tokyo’s fascinating past and dynamic future,” said Arnaud de Saint-Exupéry, General Manager of Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills. “We look forward to offering the boutique lifestyle hotel concept to both guests and locals, which is something quite new for the Japanese hotel market. The Andaz brand is deeply rooted in local culture, and we are committed to providing an unscripted, Japanese-inspired experience to guests that will help them feel truly connected to the heart and soul of Tokyo.”
We couldn't find a room online for June 11th (it said the hotel was sold-out) but we did find a special opening offer for June 16th for about $375 a night for an Andaz King. Remember, this is Andaz, so complimentary WiFi, minibar snacks and non-alcoholic drinks are included.
The hotel, located on floors 47-52 of the 52-story Toranomon Hills tower, will have 164 guest rooms including eight suites along with a lobby on the 51st floor, the Andaz Tavern restaurant and bar, and a Japanese garden on the 52nd floor with a contemporary chapel and a modern take on the traditional tea house which will actually serve as the Rooftop Bar.
Andaz guests will also have access to the AO Spa & Club on the 37th floor which has its own pool with views overlooking the Imperial Palace grounds. You can learn more about the hotel, and peep some different renderings, here.
