Towering at 188 metres, Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel, a Pan Pacific Partner Hotel, dominates the skyline of Tokyo's trendy Shibuya. It offers guestrooms which are unusually spacious in this city. Spread over 40 floors, all 411 rooms open up to unobstructed views of the glittering nightscape and Mount Fuji on clear days. The hotel is an oasis of elegant comfort in one of Tokyo's liveliest areas. It is surrounded by the famous Shibuya Crossing, Shibuya train station, Hachiko Memorial Statue and Taito business district. Shopping opportunities abound in Shibuya and adjacent Shinjuku and Ginza, both just one train station away.

For a more reflective experience, Yoyogi Park is a 15-minute walk away. It is one of Tokyo's largest city parks popular for its cherry blossoms in spring and gingko trees which turn golden in autumn. Continue walking for another 10 minutes and one will reach the Meiji Jingu (Meiji Shrine) and its ancient forest of more than 120,000 trees.

The hotel caters to diverse palates with eight excellent F&B outlets, including the beautiful Kanetanaka-So, its Japanese fine-dining restaurant. Perched on the top floor are elegant French restaurant Coucagno, helmed by Chef Nagatsuma who has honed his craft in a two Michelin-starred restaurant in France, as well as Bellovisto, a glamorous piano bar. Chef Kenichi Chen of Iron Chef fame holds fort at CHEN Chinese restaurant, which is known for its authentic Szechuan cuisine, while JZ Brat Sound of Tokyo, a 100-seat jazz club, has an avid following with its incredible live jazz performances.

A comprehensive suite of wellness facilities, including an indoor heated pool with natural lighting, a large Japanese-style sauna, and modern gym. A beauty salon, nursery and dental clinic ensure that every conceivable need is taken care of. In addition, the hotel houses an art gallery, a lounge offering French pastries and curated Japanese teas overlooking an outdoor garden, a florist and the Noh Theatre, the only hotel theatre in the city which hosts ballet, opera, and noh , the oldest surviving form of Japanese theatre art.

Three-time winner of "Best Regional Hotel Chain", Pan Pacific Hotels Group operates the Pan Pacific and PARKROYAL brands in 29 key cities worldwide. In 2020, the Group will open its luxury flagship Pan Pacific London, its first PARKROYAL hotel in Dalian, China, and PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, which will offer a fresh concept around a "garden in a hotel" after its rebrand.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
