The Palace Hotel Tokyo
will be the first hotel to have an Evian Spa in Japan. The hotel is the anchor of the $1.2 billion multi-use development. The hotel near the Imperial Palace has 10 new restaurants and bars with cuisine that ranges from Japanese and Chinese to French fare. The new luxury hotel, which opens May 17, 2012, has 290 rooms in 12 separate categories, which will be available for guests. "There is only one Tokyo, and there will only be one experience like the Palace Hotel," said Takashi Kobayashi, the president of the Palace Hotel Tokyo. "From the Aji stones at our entrance to the linens in our guest rooms, from the omotenashi at first encounter to the general management, we're celebrating an unfiltered appreciation of our country's culture."
