The Artist Floor at Park Hotel
The Park Hotel is nestled amongst the sleek architecture of the Shiodome area, one of Tokyo's most modern areas, conveniently located just a stone’s throw from Tokyo station, Tsukiji fish market and the flagship stores of Ginza.
As with several other Tokyo hotels, the property begins halfway up the building, so all rooms have amazing Tokyo Tower and city views. The Artist Floor at Park Hotel is an exciting concept which was introduced in December 2012, where 31 selected Japanese artists were invited to individually decorate, in their own style, each one of the Artist Rooms on the floor. The theme given to the artists was “infinite time and space amid cognizant Japanese beauty”, and they had free reign to interpret this however they wished. Decorating the walls and ceilings each individual room has been turned into a piece of artwork in its own right. This fully-fledged Artist Floor has rooms such as the Zen, Sumo or Dragon room, each one displaying its own understanding on the beauty of Japan. This floor is open to guests and visitors.
Park Hotel Tokyo opened in 2003 and is located on the 25th floor above the Shiodome Media Tower. Guests are greeted in the spacious atrium by the impressive view overlooking the city through the windows behind the reception desk. It makes for a great spot to relax and unwind in on arrival, immediately getting a sense of location. The restaurants and the bar are also located on this floor. From the 26th to 34th floors are the compact but stylish guest rooms, 270 in total, and the Artist Floor is located on the 31st floor. The restaurant serves familiar food, and the hotel has a policy of employing a Japanese-speaking western staff member to ensure all guest’s needs are well met.
The Park Hotel maximises the role of Japanese aesthetics and hospitality and is a great place for starting your exploration of the dazzling big city, or as an introduction for an art lover’s tour of Japan.
