Renewed rooms at the Pan Pacific
The Pan Pacific Yokohama Bay Hotel Tokyu has renewed its top three floors to create a special, luxurious atmosphere.
Dubbed Pacific Floor, the 23rd to 25th floors have 60 rooms, including the 196-sq.-meter Pan Pacific Suite, which costs ¥700,000 a night.
The design concept of the guest rooms is basically unchanged: a high-quality urban oasis in Minato Mirai. The blue carpet and white beds in the guest rooms create the illusion of being in the sea. Efficient furniture arrangements, such as placing the TV in the wall, make the rooms more spacious. The renewed rooms create more comfort for guests with many other details.
Pacific Floor has a special Pacific Lounge, where guests staying on those floors can enjoy a buffet breakfast, tea and cocktails. The lounge has butlers who provide various services as well as welcome and see off guests. The Pacific Floor also has a party space with magnificent views of Yokohama Port.
The Minato Mirai area, where the hotel is located, will be more accessible when the Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line is connected to the Minatomirai Line via the Tokyu Toyoko Line from Saturday.
The Pan Pacific Yokohama Bay Hotel Tokyu will change its name to Yokohama Bay Hotel Tokyu on April 1. Pacific Floor will also change its name to Bay Club Floor the same day.
The Pan Pacific Yokohama Bay Hotel Tokyu is a 1-minute walk from Minatomirai Station (Minatomirai Line) or a 10-minute walk from Sakuragicho Station (JR, Yokohama Municipal Subway). For more information or reservations, call (045) 682-2222 or visit pphy.co.jp .
