The world-renowned Park Hyatt Tokyo, known for being featured in the critically acclaimed film “Lost in Translation,” featuring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, recently shared its plans for an extensive renovation. As a result, the hotel will be temporarily closed until the fall of 2025.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Park Hyatt Tokyo Closed, Reopening October 2025

The Park Hyatt Tokyo announced today, May 7, 2024, on its X (formerly known as Twitter) account, that it has begun an extensive renovation project of the 30-year-old property.

The hotel originally planned for a renovation to occur before the pandemic, but those plans were shelved until now. The property made the decision to cease operations while it undergoes a full revamp, which will extend to the guest rooms and the hotel’s public spaces. It plans to welcome guests once again in October 2025.

The Park Hyatt Tokyo opened in 1994, which means it’s celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The hotel gained notoriety around the world and has remained popular since its opening, despite the clear need for a refresh. Its reopening will be eagerly anticipated, and World of Hyatt members wanting to visit Tokyo will no doubt be counting the days until it reopens.

Jouin Manku, an acclaimed design studio, has been appointed to lead the renovation, which will adhere to the design philosophy of the hotel’s original interior designer, John Morford.

“We are sincerely grateful that our studio has been given the rare opportunity to renovate Park Hyatt Tokyo and set the stage for this prestigious hotel’s much-anticipated future,” said Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, co-founders and CEOs of Jouin Manku. “We are excited to work with the hotel team to create a uniquely elegant design experience for guests, all in keeping with John Morford’s original vision. We thank the Park Hyatt Tokyo team for the trust they have placed in us.”

Final Thoughts

Many travelers know about the Park Hyatt Tokyo due in large part to its appearance in Lost in Translation. But for World of Hyatt loyalists, staying at the idolized Park Hyatt Tokyo is almost a rite of passage.

Even though the hotel has always been admired, a makeover is long overdue. We have no doubt its 1.5-year renovation project will thrill guests once the hotel is up and running again in the fall of 2025.
