The makeover of all 179 spacious guestrooms and suites draws on Japan’s rich culture, to provide guests with a strong “sense of place”.

Hong Kong -- Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo has completed a comprehensive renovation of its guestrooms and suites to create new levels of luxury, that confirm the five-star hotel’s status as one of the best in the world.

The makeover of all 179 spacious guestrooms and suites draws on Japan’s rich culture, to provide guests with a strong “sense of place”. Japanese craftmanship has been combined with the latest technology to ensure a thoroughly contemporary Japanese experience.

Renowned textile designer Reiko Sudo and art director Ryu Kosaka have transformed the guestrooms and suites, and built on the existing ‘Woods and Water’ interior design theme. Jeffrey A. Wilkes has acted as principal interior designer for the Presidential Suite, which is the largest and most luxurious suite in the hotel.

Bespoke fabrics and furnishings representing the woodlands and the changing seasons, have been incorporated throughout, with autumn leaf colours of gold, orange and purple and blooming springtime wisteria and sakura patterns embroidered onto headboards.

All accommodation has also been equipped with the latest Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), which allows for content to be viewed on both Apple and Android devices on 49-77 inch screens, offering high-quality picture and sound.

To honour the hotel’s location in Nihonbashi, an area that is closely connected to the culture of the Kimono, Reiko Sudo has used locally produced fabrics in all suite and guestroom interiors.
