Ten years ago, I had an unforgettable film experience with Sofia Coppolas timeless masterpiece Lost in Translation. When the film was over I knew three things, I was in love with Scarlet Johansson, I was going to Tokyo, and I was going to experience the hotel where the film was shot.
So, ten years later i arrived in Tokyo, and after nine days with friends, I checked in at The Park Hyatt for my two last nights, alone. This proved to be a good idea. I stayed inside most of the time, dining at Kozue and The New York Grill, swimming in the awesome pool at the top floor and experiencing the live music at The New York Bar during the evenings.
My beautiful standard room was spacious and with a fantastic view over Shinjuku Park. In the bathroom there was huge soaking tub, and a big separate shower with fabulous sinkside amenities. With free high-speed internett I even managed to get some work done, and the walk-in closet came in handy after my Harajuku shopping spree. The gigantic bed is most likely the best bed I have ever slept in. Egyptian cotton, hell yeah! I also really like the understated modern decor of the room, and the hotel’s interior design in general. Park Hyatt’s teams are outstanding and I don’t believe I have experienced service like this in any other properties so far.
After my sky high expectations I was almost afraid of getting disappointed, but it turned out there was nothing to worry about. My experience at Park Hyatt Tokyo was flawless, and I really can’t wait to revisit Tokyo and this amazing hotel. Sitting at The New York bar, pretending to be Bill Murray is something I would like to do again.
And again and again.
