A few weeks ago marked the opening of Starwood Hotels & Resorts first luxury hotel in Tokyo, Japan. The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho was unveiled by Starwood's The Luxury Collection and joins SPG's other Tokyo properties, The Westin Tokyo, Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel, Sheraton Miyako Hotel Tokyo, and the Yokohama Bay Sheraton Hotel & Towers.

The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho is the second Luxury Collection Starwood hotel to open in Japan as part of Starwood's international expansion, after The Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel, opened in Kyoto in April last year.

“We are thrilled to open our first luxury hotel in Tokyo with the debut of The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho, a market that attracts both business and leisure travellers from across the globe,” said Lothar Pehl, Senior Vice President, Operations and Global Initiatives, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific. “The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho presents indigenous flavours and colourful character within a rich cultural context, further elevating the luxury offerings in Japan's capital city.”

Managed by Prince Hotels and occupying an iconic location in the heart of Tokyo, The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kiocho sits in the Tokyo Garden Terrace Kioicho development amidst commercial, residential, retail and entertainment spaces. The neighboring Akasaka Prince Classic House is a western style 1930's building, formerly the residence of the last crown prince of Korea, now housing the modern French bistro La Maison Kioi and the chick Bar Napolean.

The new hotel comprises 250 guestrooms, including 11 suites, and features four restaurants and bars. An all-day dining venue in a sky garden called Oasis Garden; a traditional Japanese restaurant called Washouku Souten complete with sake bar, sushi counter, private dining room, and teppanyaki area.

The Levita Sky Gallery Lounge will cater to those guests chasing afternoon tea and light snacks and a bar with the not so contemporary name (complete with lack of capital letters), illumiid.

There is a spa and fitness center on site managed by Swiss Perfection which includes an indoor pool, spa treatments, sauna, and in-house personal trainers.

Final Thoughts

The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho is now available for bookings. A category 6 SPG hotel which'll price between 20,000 and 25,000 points per night — we've seen rates around ¥38,950 (US$383). We expect this hotel will be a real hit with affluent travelers and SPG loyalists alike, in a prime position, featuring fantastic amenities, and easy access to the best that Tokyo has to offer.
