GRAND OPENING: SPRING 2020. Inspired by New York’s art and fashion scene, Kimpton Shinjuku is where creativity comes to life. Like the best galleries, there is always something new to see and experience, from art installations to retail pop-ups and locally loved restaurants.The hotel soaks up the energy from the bustling Shinjuku district — one of the city’s most iconic areas — and manages to offer a slice of serenity within it, a calm oasis with a relaxing terrace bar, seamless service, and luxurious rooms with beds you can sink into. Japanese artisanal traditions and a well-worn, relaxed New York vibe combine to create an exquisitely curated canvas in every room. That’s reflected in details like signature hand basins, unique closets molded in the style of a wooden bento box and printed Yukata robes by well-known Tokyo label Hiroco Ledge. For that element of Zen in your travels, each room includes yoga mats so that you can find your flow through asanas and mindful meditation. As luxurious as the hotel is, it keeps its edge — there’s always something unexpected to discover, from an art venue that doubles as a wedding chapel to a second-floor terrace bar where you can sink into the scene. Just outside, you’re within easy reach of walking to iconic entertainment districts, biking around Yoyogi Park, and traveling through the world’s busiest railway station, which will take you anywhere you want to go — once you settle in, you might never want to leave.
The attention to artisanal detail is unmatched inside the rooms, where the signature hand basins have been specially created by third-generation ceramics makers and the closets are made to look like a bento box. The design is structured and geometric, with inspiration from nearby Shibuya Crossing, yet punctuated with pops of color and ethereal elements. With luxe linens and oversized pillows, a good night’s sleep is never a pipe dream. Learn More
