The iconic five-star flagship property of Japanese hospitality company Fujita Kanko, the Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, is in the midst of a major renovation to upgrade and refurbish all 260 guest rooms.
The renovation is taking place in three phases: 66 rooms will be complete by mid-November 2014, 99 rooms will be renovated between January-March 2015, and a further 95 rooms will be renovated between January-March 2016.
Each renovated room will offer a sofa to relax, a 50-inch TV, Japanese and Western tableware such as plates, chopsticks and tea pot, coffee machine and more. The mini-bar area will be more functional, and other upgraded amenities will include: Hansgrohe’s innovative shower heads that give invigorating massages; a full-set of skincare products; and a set of toiletries per guest, not per room.
Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo was re-flagged in 2013 after 20 years as Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Chinzan-so, offering 12 restaurants; 36 meeting and banquet rooms; and Yu, The Spa.
Fujita Kanko’s rebranding plans include investing over $80 million in renovations. New facilities have also been added, including a one-of-a-kind rooftop event space, Serenity Garden.
Formerly the residence of Prince Aritomo Yamagata, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is known for its historic heritage and its majestic Japanese botanical garden with numerous botanical species, birds and insects, a majestic green oasis in the middle of Tokyo. Its unique services include kimono rentals and fittings and traditional Japanese tea ceremony performed at the hotel’s authentic tea house.© Asia Travel Tips
