The Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo, the first Hyatt Centric hotel in the Asia-Pacific region is open.  Located on the fashionable Namiki-dori street in cosmopolitan Ginza, the 164-room full-service lifestyle hotel offers travelers a home base in a neighborhood where even the most avid explorers can stay entertained for days on end.

Designed for a growing segment of millennial-minded travelers seeking curated, yet authentically local experiences, Hyatt Centric hotels provide insider knowledge and resources to put guests comfortably at the center of action. Cosmopolitan Ginza has been a trendsetting model of Japan’s modernization since the late 19th century and remains one of Tokyo’s most upscale and up-to-date commercial areas today. The new Hyatt Centric Ginza Toyko hotel enables guests to tap into the neighborhood’s characterful mix of old and new.

Popular with walkers, Namiki-dori runs parallel to the main Chuo-dori boulevard and provides a perfect launchpad for guests to explore and discover Ginza’s diverse shopping, dining and entertainment offerings. Along with modern-day shops and restaurants, Namiki-dori is dotted with art galleries and small studio offices reminiscent of an earlier time. Both explorers and those familiar with Tokyo will find plenty to experience day or night, aided by the friendly and knowledgeable multilingual Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo hotel staff.

“We are excited to announce the introduction of the Hyatt Centric brand to the Asia-Pacific region, and particularly to Ginza, Tokyo – a destination in itself and in the heart of Japan’s vibrant capital,” said Sam Sakamura, vice president of Hyatt – Japan and Micronesia. “Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo is the nineteenth addition to the brand’s worldwide portfolio, and as the brand’s first hotel in Asia-Pacific – it marks a significant milestone for both the Hyatt Centric brand and Hyatt. As we celebrate this expansion, we look forward to the future growth of the brand.”

Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo occupies a 12-story building on the former site of the first Tokyo office of Asahi Shimbun Company, a national newspaper publisher established in 1888. The featured art in the lobby, elevator, hallways and other public spaces as well as the guestrooms echo the spirit of the streets outside, inviting exploration. Digital screens throughout the hotel feature art displays that transition with the day. Guestroom floors have rotating themes and color schemes, enabling a welcoming entrance each time a guest returns.

General Manager Tadanori Uchiyama said, “Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo makes exploration easy. Our hotel staff are savvy explorers and ready to provide guests with local tips for restaurants, bars, shops, theaters and more. The hotel is designed to make guests feel welcomed in the heart of city. Whether to relax or explore or both, they will find everything they need at our hotel.”
