The Imperial Hotel – Tokyo

Tokyo’s Imperial Hotel has a long and distinguished history. The hotel opened in 1890 across from the Imperial Palace in a impressive Victorian style building that for many decades was the only fully European style hotel in Tokyo. In 1923, the hotel opened a fabulous new building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright which stood until 1968 when the deteriorating building was dismantled, and parts of it rebuilt at Meijimura, a sort of Japanese Williamsburg, outside Nagoya. Parts of Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1923 building were preserved and can be found in the new facility which opened in 1970.

If you are a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright or just want to see some of the decor from the 1923 hotel be sure to stop by the Old Imperial Bar for a drink or just wander through the lobby of this Tokyo landmark.

Standard room rates start at Y37,800 ($378 US) and run up to Y1,050,000 ($1,050 US) for a suite on one of the Imperial Floors.
