The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo Emerges From Multi-Phase Transformation

NEW YORK, New York – September 16, 2015 – Located 45 floors up in Midtown Tower, Tokyo’s tallest building and overlooking the vibrant Roppongi District, The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo has completed its multi-phase transformative renovation this month. Led by distinguished Asia-based DESIGN STUDIO SPIN, the beauty of Japanese culture and landscape has been infused in the design, with the scent of the west blending seamlessly with east.

Drawing inspiration from the stunning skyline views of the city, which can be seen from the guest rooms and suites, and Japanese intricacies and natural elements, the luxury hotel’s guest rooms, inclusive of 36 suites, have been contemporized in dark shades of greys, purple, and red to reflect Japanese aesthetic, while furnishings pay homage to exquisite Japanese patterns. From wallpapers resembling imaginary flora called ‘So-so-ge’ that are specially given to Buddha and others resembling a kimono belt to carpet design representing bamboos, delightful touches that illustrate the remarkable and diverse beauty of Japan, while whimsical artwork nods to the hotel’s rising heights in the sky.

The Club Lounge embodies a luxurious ‘residence,’ featuring four distinctly unique spaces – reception, garden terrace, dining room, and library lounge – each created with a different atmosphere for morning, day, and evening. From carpet design inspired from Japanese stone pavement and fans made from Hinoki, or cypress trees, resembling the surrounding area and nearby Hinoki park to wallpaper featuring scattered silver leaves representing haze, all creating a sense of place and a juxtaposition between the east and west.

“We are delighted to usher in the next chapter of this distinctive hotel,” says Vice President and General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo, Mr. John Rolfs. “Now more than ever, the global traveler is seeking a true sense of connection to the destination they are traveling and we look forward to welcoming guests to rediscover our hotel, while continuing to experience the iconic service that is synonymous with The Ritz-Carlton.”

The new guest rooms and Club Lounge complete the luxury hotel’s multi-phase transformation that began with the re-opening of its signature restaurant, Hinokizaka in December 2014, along with the unveiling of The Lobby Lounge & Bar.

To commemorate the new era of luxury, The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo has unveiled ‘The Elevated Luxury Package,’ dedicated to inspiring meaningful journeys for their guests. The package includes lavish overnight accommodations including VIP amenities in the refined suites, exclusive access to the rejuvenated Club Lounge, reinvigorating spa treatment at The

Ritz-Carlton Spa by the newly introduced Sodashi – offering the purest skincare range in the world, and a specially crafted ‘Hanayagi’ course in the newly transformed Hinokizaka.

‘The Elevated Luxury Package’ is now available with nightly rates starting at approximately $2,417 USD. For bookings and more information on The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo, please visit www.ritzcarlton.com/Tokyo.
