Tradition, Hospitality, Character Imperial Hotel Tokyo

Old Imperial Bar

The glamorous Old Imperial Bar embodies the tradition and spirit of the grand Imperial Hotel.

The counter is made of high grade rosewood. Each individual seat is illuminated by a spotlight, making the cocktails look even more beautiful.

  Reflecting the Imperial Hotel's history, the artistic terracotta walls and geometric patterns of Oya stone* at the left rear of the interior are particularly eye-catching. The bar preserves the classic motifs from the original Imperial Hotel building as designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1923. The original hotel, renowned as the "Jewel of the Orient," was the only hotel in Japan designed by the master architect and for many years was simply called the Wright Building. Although the original building was demolished in 1968, the artichitectural heritage and fine craftsmanship are preserved in the Old Imperial Bar.

The Imperial Hotel inherits more than just its facade from the Wright Building. We honor the dignity of our heritage with an elite standard of service. Our spirit of classic hospitality cultivated over the years provides guests with an unrivaled experience.

Our staff are deeply dedicated to providing the highest quality in personalized service. The bartender notes the position and angle at which the guest places the glass and will serve every following drink in the precise spot they prefer. Although such minute, subtle details often go unnoticed, staff members are dedicated to providing this type of humble, unobtrusive service which makes a stay at the Imperial Hotel such a pleasure.

This is of course only one example of the exceptional level of service the Imperial Hotel has cultivated over the course of a century.

The atmosphere of the original building is faithfully reproduced. Evey detail honors Wright’s original design, from the lighting and interior to the tableware.

The Wright Building is said to have been inspired by the Phoenix Hall at Byodo-in Temple. Constructed of a skillful combination of Oya stone and brick, the illustrious building was for many years “The Reception Hall of Japan” for visiting dignitaries.

Hospitality

“I want my shirts laundered like they do at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo.”

Beautiful seasonal floral arrangements greet guests at the lobby entrance. The Imperial was first hotel in Japan to offer laundry services. People all over the world place great confidence in our warmhearted service.

Keanu Reeves' famous line in the final scene of the film Johnny Mnemonic was actually an ad-lib by the actor. Reeves was so impressed by the laundry service at the Imperial that he remembered it on the highly tense movie set. Our professional laundry, dry cleaning, and clothes-pressing services, are tailored to suit our guests' every need—from stain removal to button-sewing. All laundry staff have undergone at least four years of training and handle all services with the utmost care and attention. This standard of service impresses even VIP guests familiar with luxury hotels.

 This impeccable level of service is ubiquitous throughout the hotel. Doormen change their gloves every 30 minutes so that they are always immaculately clean when handling guests' luggage and keep 1,000 and 5,000 yen bills on hand in case guests need to make change for a taxi driver. Such humble, subtle gestures lie at the core of Japanese hospitality and demonstrate how seriously the Imperial Hotel values service.

“We welcome guests at the rotary and effortly usher them inside. From this brief exchange we strive to anticipate the guest’s wishes and consider what we can do to make their stay at the Imperial Hotel memorable.” (Doorman, Mr. Hasegawa)

This dedication to guest satisfaction is rooted in a spirit of hospitality that has been passed down since the hotel’s founding. All of our employees endeavor to constantly anticipate a guests' every desire.

Kimono-clad attendants warmly welcome guests and help carry luggage upon arrival and departure. They are available throughout your stay to make absolutely sure every guest gets the service they deserve.

“In addition to guest services such as laundry and restaurant reservations, we will go shopping on behalf of our guests. We will do everything in our power to fulfill guests' wishes. As a general rule, the word “no” is not in our vocabulary.” (Guest Attendant, Mr. Majima)

Attendants do more than offer standard hotel services—they endeavor to provide the service best suited for each individual guest.

“Guest attendants share information about guests who have stayed in the past. For example, a guest may express individual preferences about furniture arrangements and number of pillows, favorite fruits, or the need for a humidifier. One of our jobs is to make sure things they have previously requested are available in their room so that it is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. For first-time guests, we will remember whatever they tell us, and constantly try to anticipate their every need.”

This humble service charms first-time guests into loyal clients.

The top floors of the tower (30th and 31st) were renovated in 2016 into our Premium Tower Floors. Rooms on these floors are especially bright, with openness as the key design principle. The expansive view from the windows includes the outer garden of the Imperial Palace, Hibiya Park, and the Ginza cityscape. In contrast to the Imperial Floors which honor tradition and formality, these floors have bright, modern interiors with white overtones. They are especially popular with younger guests and visitors from abroad. The room interiors have bay windows which bring in plenty of light.

Like the Imperial Floors, the Premium Tower Floors are served by full-time guest attendants to assist you during your stay. Additionally, guests on the Premium Tower Floors are served continental breakfast with freshly-baked bread is their room each morning, and free soft drinks are available in the minibar.

Restaurants Four culinary adventures to satisfy your taste buds and your spirit.

The Imperial Hotel was the first in Japan to offer buffet-style dining. The Imperial Viking Sal is the latest incarnation of this buffet restaurant tradition. Our restaurants have hosted many important dignitaries and witnessed significant historical events, including when Queen Elizabeth enjoyed an Imperial Hotel luncheon at La Brasserie.
The hotel has a wide range of restaurants to please all palates, from traditional French cuisine praised as “Paris in Tokyo,” to teppanyaki, traditional Japanese cuisine, and modern Chinese.  

The restaurant staff uphold the same Imperial Hotel hospitality standards as the hotel staff. For example, hosts at Les Saisons are conscious to move carefully around guests so that they may devote all of their attention to their dining experience.
