The opening will mark the twelfth hotel to join the Andaz brand and is the first Andaz hotel located in Japan. Easy access to Ginza, Marunouchi and Akasaka, it will be centrally located between the Imperial Palace and Tokyo Tower and will accommodate business and leisure travellers alike.
As with all Andaz hotels around the globe, Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills will create inspiring experiences and offerings through the city’s rich history and culture, helping guests to know their surroundings more intimately and leave feeling like a local.
“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.”
Andaz Tokyo is located on floors 47-52 of the 52-story Toranomon Hills tower, which has been developed as part of an innovative urban engineering project integrating central Tokyo with the bay area. Stretching directly outward from Toranomon Hills tower is a 14-kilometre (8.7-mile) looped road development set to become one of the most popular boulevards in Tokyo. The road will feature a tunnel running underneath the tower, creating open spaces on the ground-level where locals and tourists can walk and absorb the beautiful scenery that Tokyo has to offer.
