The brand new Courtyard Marriott Tokyo Station Hotel opened on April 2, 2014. It’s located just 4 minutes away on foot from Tokyo Station and is ideal for visitors who come for tourism and business trips. There are 150 guest rooms with 4 different patterns of design, each of which is colorful and possesses some individuality. The hotel has a high-class restaurant and a café so it’s convenient also for non-guests. A new stylish hotel was born!

Free Wi-Fi and special place to enjoy your drink

When staying in a hotel, sometimes you’d want to just relax inside without going anywhere and get a taste of the special atmosphere.

The newly opened Courtyard Marriott Tokyo Station Hotel is designed under the concept of a city apartment. Yet the design and interior are very refined. On the photo you can see the shared space called “Library bar” which is equipped with imported tables and sofas with a stylish and modern design. You’ll almost forget that you’re in Tokyo, and might as well feel that you’re in the center of Paris!

In the Library bar you can drink not only coffee and tea, but also alcohol drinks. The room is well equipped with AC sockets and mobile phone chargers, so people on a business trip can freely use their laptops.

Working is easy in this stylish and classy environment! Enjoy your time in this French-flavored library bar. By the way, guests of the hotel can receive up to 2 cups of coffee and tea for free!

Bright and fresh! The "Creator's Queen" type of rooms

As I already mentioned, there are 150 rooms in Courtyard Marriott Tokyo Station Hotel which have 4 different design patterns. Each of them conveys the city apartment lifestyle.

On the photo you can see the room designed the look like the apartment of IT and media-related “digital creators”. The interior is simple and mostly green so the atmosphere is bright and fresh.

The relaxing and posh "Editor's twin"

This room is designed to look like the home of the chief editor of a popular magazine. The lamps have moon and mountain patterns, while the relaxed purple and black color mix reminds of traditional Japanese Zen atmosphere. This is a room where foreign visitors can feel the true spirit of Japan. It’s 23 square meters wide, equipped with Simmons twin beds.

In most hotels all the rooms are white or beige regardless of their type and the size of the beds. But in Courtyard Marriott Tokyo Station Hotel the rooms are designed to look like houses of 4 city dwellers. Just staying there is interesting so be sure to enjoy your time.

Restaurant "Lavarock" where you can try real bistro dishes

The high temperature makes everything so soft and delicious that meat lovers should definitely come and eat here. The main dishes cost about 1500 JPY. Just even one dish is enough for 2 people.
