Imperial Hotel, Tokyo Offering Frank Lloyd Wright (R) Suite in Celebration of 100th Anniversary of Opening of Wright Building

TOKYO, Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Tokyo's world-famous, 132-year-old Imperial Hotel, Tokyo is now celebrating the 100th anniversary of the opening of its second main building (commonly known as the Wright Building) designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. To celebrate the anniversary, the Imperial Hotel, Tokyo, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, is offering an exclusive Frank Lloyd Wright (R) Suite stay available from January 24, 2023, to March 31, 2024 (special periods such as New Year's Day are excluded).Logo: Frank Lloyd Wright (R) Suite is a 214-square-meter (2,303-square-feet) luxury suite featuring original designs and architectural motifs from its world-renowned 1923-1967 Frank Lloyd Wright hotel building and other landmark Wright structures. To be marketed as the Frank Lloyd Wright (R) Suite, the JPY1,400,000 or approximately USD10,850 (as of January 20, 2023, exchange rate) per night accommodation overlooks Hibiya Park and Imperial Palace gardens in central Tokyo from a higher floor of the hotel's main building and houses a living room, a dining room and a bedroom (consumption tax and service charge included, accommodation tax excluded). By using the Imperial Floor Deluxe Twin connecting room adjacent to the suite, guests can use these accommodations for up to four people at one time (JPY1,410,000 for three persons and JPY1,420,000 for four persons).The Frank Lloyd Wright (R) Suite is the only suite in the world to bear the name of the U.S. architect under a name use agreement with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation of the United States. The Frank Lloyd Wright (R) Suite incorporates the design of the former Wright Building of the Imperial Hotel, using Wright's original carpets, furniture and lighting, as well as the design of his private residence in the United States, and reconstructs them in a hotel room. Upon entering the room, one can feel Wright's unique compression and release techniques. The walls of the entrance foyer are decorated with reliefs of Oya stone, reproduced from designs from the Wright Building, and the carpets are based on the design sketches Wright drew when he created the Wright Building. Wright's designs are used throughout the building, including as wall decorations, ceiling moldings, furniture, and lamps. In addition to the decorations and furniture design, the suite also captures the flow of light and air, rather than confining them to a single space, with latticework on some walls and glass and air passageways in the doors, allowing the room space itself to reflect the life of Wright.The suite opened in 2005. This is the first time it will be offered in an exclusive stay; the package includes daily breakfast, in-room check-in and check-out, and guest attendant service. The hotel's exclusive concierge service will assist patrons with their trip from the moment they make their reservation. One drink service is available daily at the Old Imperial Bar, which includes the original 1923 Wright design. Also included is tea service in the Toko-an, a tea ceremony room designed by Togo Murano, an architect famous for his sukiya-style work (Japanese architectural style). An all-you-can-drink minibar with seasonal domestic juice, beer, wine, whiskey and Japanese sake is included. Usage of the laundry, pool and fitness center is available.
