Tokyo is an amazing city for the business traveller, full of bustling life and energy. The culture is a unique juxtaposition of elegant Japanese tradition and cutting edge, vibrant innovation. So, whether you want a little old-style luxury or are looking for something a bit more high-end urban cool, you’ll find a hotel perfect for you and your needs.
For any work trip it’s important to ensure you’ve got all the details covered, everything from arranging your meetings in advance and making sure you have the relevant contact details to ensuring your business travel insurance is up to date. Once all the nitty gritty is taken care of, turn your mind to the pleasure of choosing one of Tokyo’s many luxury hotels as the base for your next trip.
Check out my recommendations for the very best business hotels in Tokyo.
If you’re looking to mix work with pleasure during your stay in Tokyo then the sumptuous five-star Grand Hyatt, set in the heart of the city’s vibrant entertainment district, is a great choice.
Towering above the shopping and business development Roppongi Hills, the Grand Hyatt has so much to offer you may find you don’t need to venture beyond its grounds for your entire stay.
There are 17 elegant meeting rooms in the hotel, which has its own business centre, and when it’s time to relax you can choose between the vast spa, seven restaurants (one with its own private dining room for private meetings/dining) and three bars.
For a stunning view and the ultimate dining experience the Conrad Tokyo is a great choice. Set up in the clouds on the upper floors of one of the city’s dramatic skyscrapers, every room has a breath-taking view of Tokyo Bay below.
Whether you choose to relax in the traditional Japanese-inspired spa, the elegant bar with its panoramic views or in the Michelin-starred China Blue restaurant, you will feel yourself elevated above the hustle and bustle of Tokyo’s busy streets.
Prince Park Tower
The Prince Park Tower offers something hard to find in many of the luxury hotels in the city: a view of green space. Set in the picturesque greenery of Shiba Park, the high-rise hotel provides beautiful views of one of Tokyo’s few green spaces.
The large, luxurious rooms make the most of the hotel’s location with floor to ceiling windows taking in the beautiful city and park views. Light is used not just in the bedrooms and suites but in the hotel’s beautiful top-floor restaurant with its dramatic skylights as well, giving the Prince Park Tower a feeling of light and space.
The Strings by InterContinental
An ideal base for business travel, insurance and financial services guests particularly rate The Strings because it puts them at the heart of Tokyo’s Shinagawa business district.
But being in the financial district doesn’t mean The Strings lacks atmosphere; there is a modern, hip vibe to this city-centre hotel, with stylish bedrooms and hip bars and restaurants. There’s no spa here but there is a fitness suite, if staying in shape while working abroad is one of your priorities.
NOTE: Tokyo is a great city with a good safety record and low crime but, as with any trip, it’s important to make sure that you’re covered just in case anything goes wrong. Don’t forget to take out specialised business travel insurance to make sure that, from laptops and tablets to Mont Blanc pens and lost luggage, you’ll be able to keep going even if the worst does happen.
