Park Hyatt Hotel Tokyo in Shinjuku celebrated its 20th birthday recently and it's still one of the best hotels in Tokyo. Nobody would complain about spending a night here, and it gets great reviews on TripAdvisor and other sites, but the rooms could do with a renovation to bring them to the standard of newer competitors. (Update: the hotel is embarking on a big revamp).
The hotel still draws in visitors wanting to recreate their own Lost in Translation, and maybe that’s part of the charm - everything is pretty much exactly the same as in the film, including the New York Bar & Grill, which is a excellent restaurant and one of Tokyo's most iconic bars. The hotel wasn't reportedly wasn't very supportive of Sofia Coppola filming at the hotel - management thought it might disturb other guests. Service is super-refined from the concierge through to waitstaff.
Park Hyatt Tokyo's location is good if you’re doing business in Shinjuku, but for leisure travellers it’s a bit isolated. Shinjuku Station is a 10-minute walk away (hotel runs free shuttle buses back and forth), but there’s not much of interest in the hotel’s immediate vicinity.
So why choose Park Hyatt Tokyo vs. Andaz Tokyo or the Grand Hyatt Tokyo? All are Hyatt luxury properties and all have great views, so it depends mostly on which area of Tokyo you want to be in and what style of hotel you're after.
If you want modern design packaged in a new-build development, try the Andaz. If you want to be in the thick of Roppongi, with its bars, restaurants and shopping on your doorstep, go for the Grand Hyatt. If you want to be cocooned in quiet, discreet luxury, with a bit of film nostalgia thrown in, choose the Park Hyatt in Shinjuku.Review updated February 20, 2017
