Hyatt Signs First Unbound Collection Hotel in Tokyo
Hyatt has signed a management agreement with Mori Building for the first Unbound Collection hotel in Tokyo, the brand’s second in Japan.
Slated to open in late 2023, the 205-room Hotel Toranomon Hills will be part of the new Toranomon Hills Station Tower, the final major addition to the evolving Toranomon Hills global business hub.
The building, which will be directly connected to Toranomon Hills Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya subway line, will house office space, restaurants and a multifunctional complex on its top floors incorporating a main hall, galleries, studios, and a Vertical Garden City which will include a rooftop garden, steeped gardens, flowing streams and even a swimming pool.
The Hotel Toranomon Hills will occupy part of the tower’s first floor as well as the building’s 11th to 14th floors.
“We are thrilled for these plans to debut The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand to Tokyo with Hotel Toranomon Hills as part of the landmark Toranomon Hills Station Tower, which will be a cosmopolitan focal point within Tokyo’s newest and innovative business hub for international citizens,” said Sam Sakamura, Hyatt’s Vice President Japan and Micronesia. “As Hyatt seeks further growth of its lifestyle and luxury brand portfolio, we are focused on building personal relationships with owners who will help us expand our brands in key markets and deliver the world-class product and service for which Hyatt is known. We are grateful for the continued trust and support of Mori Building and Mori Hospitality Corporation and are honored to grow our collaboration with the launch of this milestone development.”
The hotel’s interiors will be designed by Space Copenhagen, a Danish design studio, marking its first project in Japan.
At the social heart of the hotel will be the lounge on the 11th and 12th floors (pictured) offering guests co-working stations, meeting rooms and complimentary refreshments, as well as a relaxation zone with shower facilities for those who arrive early or have late departures.
Culinary experiences at the hotel will include a signature Sergio Herman restaurant, as well as a café and bar on the first floor.
“Launching an international-standard hotel is essential for the further expansion and evolution of Toranomon Hills as a new international hub and global business center capable of attracting travelers from all over the world,” said Shingo Tsuji, President and Representative Director of Mori Building Co. “We are thrilled to work with Hyatt on this project, as Hyatt is a long-time collaborator of ours and one of the world’s most well-known and trusted names. We look forward to offering one-of-a-kind urban experiences unique to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand with the debut of Hotel Toranomon Hills.”
Once open, Hotel Toranomon Hills will be the second Unbound Collection by Hyatt hotel in Japan, joining the Fuji Speedway Hotel in Shizuoaka.
