Andaz to open in Tokyo, bringing a wealth of innovations
Andaz Tokyo will occupy eight floors, including the top six, with a total of 167 rooms in a 52-story tower in a multi-use complex now under construction in Toranomon, a business and embassy district located in the capital’s prestigious Minato Ward. Andaz Tokyo will be the fourth Hyatt-branded hotel to open in Tokyo and the ninth to be established in Japan. Hyatt and Mori Building affiliates have collaborated on two other five-star properties in Asia: Park Hyatt Shanghai, which opened in September 2008, and Grand Hyatt Tokyo, which will mark its tenth anniversary in April 2013.
At its pinnacle on the 52nd floor, Andaz Tokyo will feature two facilities that will introduce rooftop flair to the city’s dining scene: an open-air bar and the Andaz Studio, a flexible event and meeting space with terrace seating. Also a first for a high-rise Tokyo hotel, there will be a 65 square foot indoor infinity pool. An all-day dining restaurant, also located on this floor, will offer fresh, seasonal, and organic fare reflecting the brand’s market-to-table philosophy. The 52nd floor will house a chapel.
