Formerly The Century Hyatt

The Hyatt Regency Tokyo, rebranded from The Century Hyatt when it first opened in 1980, is centrally located and a few minutes away from the Shinjuku station. The hotel has a courtesy shuttle between the Shinjuku JR station and the hotel. You can also access the hotel from the Tochomae metro station below the hotel, which is a much shorter walk.

Upon entering the hotel, the front desk is to the left. The lobby is large with high ceilings. The lobby does look a little tired and outdated though.

Check-in was quick and efficient.

The king bed was on the firm side, but not uncomfortably so. There was a dresser on each side of the bed. Unfortunately, there were no outlets next to the bed.

Lounge Offerings

There was a small cooler with drinks, a self-serve drink station, cookies, nuts, dried fruit, arare, pickled vegetables and cheese.

I didn’t spend much time in the lounge during my stay. I also did not eat breakfast in the lounge, as I wanted to go out and explore Tokyo rather than eat a mundane meal in all likelihood.

Service was fine throughout my stay. I wasn’t in the hotel much but all employees I encountered were friendly. The hotel is showing its age, and is in need of a renovation. The hotel is centrally located. There’s a decision to be made in the Hyatt market in Tokyo. The Grand Hyatt is a much nicer property, but appears to have more limited treatment options. The Hyatt Regency needs a makeover, but has better transportation options from what I’ve seen.
