There are 290 guest rooms and suites, each at least 45 square meters in size and all beautifully decorated with comfort and luxury in mind. Guests staying in the Club rooms or suites have access to the private club lounge, and the hotel has a new renowned spa facility, fine dining options on site, and a phenomenal event space that can accommodate up to 1,500 people.

There's a very interesting split in the travel industry between business and leisure travelers. And if you're one of the business types, you know well that you're on the road constantly and the things that matter to you, travel convenience, efficiency, and connectivity, are almost the opposite of what a leisure traveler might want. If the word 'secluded' ever appeared in a hotel description, you'd cross it off the list immediately. So I'm here to use some adjectives you might appreciate hearing in describing some of the world's best business hotels. Today? Tokyo.
Guests may be familiar with the criticallly-acclaimed Park Hyatt Tokyo from its estranged cinematic guests from the film Lost in Translation. Designed as a modern private residence, the 178 rooms and suites are the most spacious in the city. Its 24-hour business center gives you unparalleled access to everything you might need, and it is located next to the city's major transportation hub. The Shinjuku station provides rail and subway access to anywhere in the city. Extensive meeting and business facilities provide spacious room for anything from business meetings to conferences. And you can wine and dine your clients at the New York Grill, number one for the past five years in Tokyo's Zagat Survey. The Park Hyatt Tokyo is everything a business traveler looks for, packaged up nicely in one convenient location. And who knows? You might even have an incredibly dysfunctional but endearing relationship with an American transplant while you're there.
