British ultra-luxury hotel chain Dorchester Collection is planning to open in what will soon be Japan’s tallest building currently under construction in Tokyo, with the company planning its first forays into Asia in 2028, said developer Mitsubishi Estate Co.
Popular with royalty and celebrities, the hotel will open its doors in the 390-meter Torch Tower, which is being built near JR Tokyo Station and is expected to be completed in fiscal year 2027.
According to the current plan, the hotel will occupy the 53rd to 58th floors of the building. According to a joint press release from Mitsubishi, Tokyo Century Corp and Dorchester Collection, it will have 110 guest rooms, as well as restaurants and a pool.
The hotel area is expected to be around 21,400 square meters and offer guests panoramic views of Tokyo Bay and Mt. Fuji.
“We can offer an unparalleled experience,” said Junichi Yoshida, President of Mitsubishi Estate.
Though accommodation fees have yet to be announced, a Dorchester official said they are likely to be among the most expensive in Tokyo.
“World-class architects will inspire with their symbolic design torch concept, illuminating not only the future of Tokyo and Japan but the entire world,” said Christopher Cowdray, CEO of Dorchester Collection, in the press release.
The hotels operated by Dorchester Collection are currently located in nine locations in five cities, including London, Paris and Los Angeles.
