Hilton Tokyo has started to renovate and
re-brand all its restaurants located on the hotelís second floor.
A new restaurant floor will be unveiled in November this year. The
new restaurant space takes design inspiration from the mix of old
and new about Shinjuku, and will introduce contemporary culinary
experiences that encompass a grill, Japanese cuisine, Chinese
cuisine and a Bar/Lounge (approximately 570 seats).
restaurant design is by Nao Taniyama, a food and beverage concept
designer who has made his name through a number of noteworthy
projects including French restaurant Dominique Bouchet Ginza. The
dining space can be best described as Ďselective diningí, where
guests can not only select their cuisine preference but also moods
of time and space as inspired by the Shinjuku-themed surrounds.
The second floor restaurant renewal project is the most publicly
visible part of the extensive renewal of the hotel, aptly timed
with the 30th anniversary of the hotelís relocation to Shinjuku.
Between 2006 and 2009, the hotel completed the first phase of a
master plan program to refurbish the guest rooms, executive lounge,
lobby, marble lounge, ballroom, fitness center and
business center. Following that, the current phase of the Master
plan commenced in 2012 with the refurbishment of the remaining
guest rooms, small- to mid-size function room and the wedding
chapel completed to-date.
Founded in Nagato-cho one year prior
to the 1964 Tokyo Olympics as one of the first international hotel chains
to operate in Japan, Hilton Tokyo relocated to Tokyoís
metropolitan government district in Nishi-Shinjuku in 1984.
