Hotel website

Experience moments of more at a dynamic lifestyle destination hotel in the heart of Roppongi, Tokyo – a lively international district. With its central location directly connected to Roppongi Hills which houses 200 shops and restaurants, a cinema, an art museum and an observatory, Grand Hyatt Tokyo is the perfect base from which to comfortably explore and discover the city.

As one of the best areas to stay in Tokyo, the hotel is only a 3 minute walk away from Roppongi Station and provides easy access to popular areas such as Ginza and Shibuya, making it ideal for business and leisure. Wander in Mohri Garden to see the beautiful cherry blossoms in the springtime or the changing leaves in the fall. In the winter, enjoy the Christmas market or the sparkling lights just steps away from the luxury accommodation.
