Royal Park Hotel Tokyo will mark its 25th anniversary next June. On the occasion of the quarter-century milestone, the hotel redesigned its Executive Lounge, which opened on the 20th floor in early September.

Customers staying on the hotel’s Executive Floors, from the 12th to 18th, can check in at a special counter. Because the new lounge is much more spacious than its 16th-floor predecessor, it has been completely re-furnished and is a haven of comfort and privacy high above Tokyo.

The lounge will open from 7 a.m. and offer a special organic breakfast until 8:30 a.m. (until 9 a.m. on weekends and holidays). The buffet-style breakfast includes six kinds of the hotel’s own special jam, which has become so popular many customers ask where they can get it. Also, omelets are cooked fresh on request at a special counter. On Sundays and holidays, Japanese-style breakfasts will be offered, too.

For refreshments, three coffee machines serve various types of coffee, including cappuccino and latte, which can be enjoyed with an array of snacks. Also, other nonalcoholic beverages and six kinds of herbal tea, including the hotel’s original blend, are available.

From 5 p.m., it’s cocktail time and time to unwind. Various alcoholic beverages, including sake, will be served. Wines, all seasonally selected by the hotel’s sommelier, will be available at the special wine counter. Hot and cold hors d’oeuvres are prepared by the hotel’s chef, and many other finger snacks such as cheese and nuts are available.

So after a hard day, customers can relax and look out over Tokyo through the floor-to-ceiling windows. On a sunny day the breathtaking views may include a glimpse of Mount Fuji.

If business can’t wait, two meeting rooms that can accommodate 8 people are available free for two hours. Therefore, the lounge can be used for many occasions. Various types of accommodation plans can be found at the hotel’s website.

The area around the hotel is one of the largest old Tokyo “towns” dating back to the Edo Period (1603-1867) and people can enjoy various Japanese foods. For those who want to experience Japanese local food culture, the hotel can provide a special map showing 60 stores that have bilingual menus. This is one of the local revitalizing projects the hotel conducts to welcome foreigners. As part of its “Omotenashi (warm hospitality)” service the hotel not only recommends its restaurants but also introduces other local eateries suitable for each request from customers.
