Park Hyatt Tokyo

Park Hyatt Tokyo

Anyone who’s watched Lost in Translation starring Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray will know the Park Hyatt Tokyo, which was prominently featured in the film. As the name suggests, it is a Hyatt property, and I wasn’t going to let my chance of staying at this place go. Instead of paying $1,500 a night, I used 35k Chase Ultimate Rewards points to get a taste of upscale Tokyo.

We arrived at the hotel at half past 6am not expecting to get a room, but did request to take our Globalist breakfast that morning, since we would not be having breakfast the next day thanks to our early departure for Osaka.

Too bad we were only staying a night, because I can certainly get used to this breakfast.

Expecting that our room wouldn’t be ready by 3pm, we spent the day in the city on the hunt for more food. By the time we got back, our upgraded King Delux room was ready.

The Park Hyatt does seem dated, but despite that, it somehow manages to exude understated elegance. Ideally, we should have stayed a few more nights to fully enjoy what the hotel had to offer but, like this trip to Japan, the Park Hyatt was simply a stopover.
