PAL ACE HOT E L TOK YO
Fresh and pretty in its kimono-inspired shades of chartreuse, violet and gold, the Palace Hotel Tokyo was reconstructed on the site of the 1961 hotel built in anticipation of the Tokyo Olympics. The interiors have an airy, contemporary Japanese style with a hint of retro charm. Book a room with a balcony – a rare feature in Tokyo – to have breakfast overlooking the Imperial Palace gardens. ↓ Business facilities The 24-hour business centre has comfortable workstations with PCs and VoIP telephones. The sleek ’60s-style meeting rooms have the latest technology and glossy automatic doors that slide open to reveal a dedicated lounge. Wi-fi Fast and complimentary throughout. Guestrooms have universal adaptors and connection kits for your devices. Food and wine There are several elegant international dining options but Grand Kitchen has something no other restaurant in Tokyo can boast: a wide terrace right on the moat of the Imperial Palace. Royal Bar, re-created to echo the 1961 original with its authentic fittings, is where impeccably suited bartenders still make the best Martinis in town – stirred, not shaken, of course. Fitness and wellbeing The fullservice Evian Spa aims to erase jet lag or you can do a few laps of the 20-metre indoor pool. The 24-hour gym has the latest cardio and weights stations. Under Armour fitness gear can be hired if needed. Run route The fivekilometre Imperial Palace jogging route is practically at the front door.
