Hilton Tokyo Begins Renovation of MICE Facilities

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 18 June 2009

The 3-year multi-million dollar renovation of the Hilton Tokyo continues this summer with the full renovation of the main ballroom.

 Following the refurbishment of the guest rooms, the Executive Lounge, lobby, ‘Marble Lounge’ and fitness center, which was completed in March 2008, the Hilton Tokyo has implemented the next stage in the hotel’s transformation.

The new ballroom, the Kiku, and the banquet lobby will be reopened as a totally new function space, “where meeting are convened and relationships created”, at the end of September 2009.

Benefiting from a light-filled lobby area, the 932 square meter ballroom Kiku is the largest function room in the hotel and can be divided into 4 smaller rooms: ‘Kikka’, ‘Kikuyou’, ‘Kikuen’ and ‘Kiku foyer’.

The flexibility of the space allows it to cater for events ranging from sophisticated gala dinners to smaller intimate gatherings. The room will accommodate up to 600 diners for a stylish gala dinner style and up to 1,200 people in theater style.

The core interior design concept of the renovation is taken from the Japanese word ‘Iki’, loosely translate as stylish, and inspired by the striped patterns of the traditional Kimono of the Japanese Edo period (1603 – 1868). This era was known as the beginning of the early modern period of Japan and a marriage of modernity and tradition will be instrumental to the unique and stylish function space being created by the Design Studio Yukio Hashimoto.

The colors to be used in the Kiku ballroom are inspired by nature, combining light beige tones and vermilion, creating a warm yet vivid impression.

 The special wall paper, made of cloth with pleat patterns, will create the impression of a patterned Kimono and is specifically designed to enhance the room’s acoustics.

 The vivid vermilion carpet will appear as a traditional Kimono ‘Obi’ or sash that has been carefully placed along the length of the banquet floor.

 The lighting design is inspired by the famous lattice doors of Kyoto. A LED colour changer system, 250 inch screen and 12,000 lumen projector will be newly installed to provide one of the most up-to-date banquet facilities in Tokyo.

The Hilton Tokyo will celebrate its 25th anniversary in September 2009.
