A luxurious, spacious and sophisticated inner-city hotel with a string of top restaurants in Tokyo’s cosmopolitan Roppongi district – renowned for its shopping, nightlife and galleries – the Grand Hyatt is popular among families and business visitors alike.
The hotel is located in the upmarket confines of Roppongi Hills, one of the city’s most well known (and international) entertainment complexes, with countless designer boutiques and restaurants. Roppingi is also home to Tokyo Midtown, another stylish shopping complex (about 12 minutes on foot). It’s not the most obvious place to stay for those seeking an authentic local Japanese feel – but it’s perfect for experiencing a visitor-friendly and cosmopolitan side of the capital. Roppongi is also an emerging arts hub, with a string of top museums and galleries, from Mori Art Museum to 21_21 Design Sight.
Address: Roppongi Hills, 6-10-3 Roppongi, Minato, Tokyo 106-0032, Japan.
Style & character
Luxuriously contemporary, the hotel, which spans 21 floors and is directly connected to Roppongi Hills, showcases an elegant mix of modern Japanese and Western design. There are expanses of dark woods, atmospheric lanterns, bold minimal artworks and, perhaps unusually for central Tokyo, a sense of spaciousness throughout. It’s anything but boutique in dimensions: it’s home to an impressive 387 guestrooms and half a dozen restaurants – many popular among Tokyoites as destinations in their own right.
Service & facilities
Staff are friendly, relaxed, and clearly used to helping people when they get lost (particularly in the sometimes confusing corridors that link Roppongi Hills shopping centre to the hotel). Competing with all the entertainment on the hotel’s doorstep is fifth floor spa Nagomi, a serene space with Japanese-inspired treatments. A highlight is the Nagomi massage, which uses a delicious oil blend of ginger and “yuzu” (a sweet, zesty Japanese citrus fruit). There is also a spacious fitness centre with an expansive blue swimming pool, fitted out with a distinct circular illuminated whirlpool bath.

The rooms are clean-lined and elegantly understated, with expanses of dark mahogany wood complementing the neutral colour palette (light rusts, mossy greens and, of course, lots of white) while minimalist nature-inspired artworks hang in black frames on the wall. The standard Grand Rooms are compact in size, comfortable and contemporary, with Tokyo skyline views through a wall of windows. The beds are memorably comfortable (a combination of silkily soft Egyptian cotton sheets by Frette and extra deep mattresses). The bathrooms are also designed to enable a soak-with-a-view in generously sized bathtubs. Among the 28 suites, the Ambassador’s Suite is a design highlight – complete with a tatami mat room boasting views of Mount Fuji across the city on clear days plus a private Japanese garden.
Food & drink
Guests are spoilt for choice due to its seven good quality restaurants (Japanese, French, Italian and Chinese flavours among them), a pastry boutique and two bars. There is atmospheric Roku Roku, a sixth floor restaurant serving delicious sushi in a contemporary Japanese space; Shunbou rustles up exquisitely-presented traditional and seasonal kaiseki banquet style meals; The Oak Door, as popular as it is lively, is a modern steakhouse serving premium meat dishes complemented by an expansive New World wine collection. After dark, the jazz lounge Maduro is perfect for nightcaps, with its opulent and intimate décor matching its rare whiskeys and expertly-mixed cocktails. Buffet breakfasts at the French Kitchen – as delicious as they are expansive – are another highlight.
