Those looking to stay in a truly central location in Tokyo will want to check out Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo, steps from Shinjuku Station. The property’s aesthetics are old-school East meets West, with the lobby having a bit of a timeless Midtown Manhattan vibe, and many rooms decorated in simple, contemporary, Japanese style. However, it’s the subtle details and special amenities that make this hotel surefire lodging for business clientele.

The Keio’s expansive restaurant program is a microcosm of Tokyo, with numerous individual restaurants specializing in different Japanese specialties and preparation, from teppanyaki (skewered grilled meats and vegetables) to formal kaiseki (multicourse meals), tempura, sushi and soba noodles, along with Chinese, Korean and Western options all with interiors that reflect different aspects of Japanese food culture and can be adapted for a variety of corporate dinners. If you plan to add breakfast to your firm’s corporate offer, the best place to fuel up for the day is Glass Court. Here, one finds a rotating selection of freshly prepared Western and Japanese morning dishes served alongside fresh-baked bread, pastries and excellent coffee. Many of the stations are manned, ensuring freshness and assistance should a dish need a modification for a vegetarian or other dietary need.

The selection of banquet halls and meeting rooms is just as diverse and appealing. The fourth-floor Nishiki and Ohgi rooms can easily accommodate gatherings of up to 200 guests for a sit-down dinner or as many as 360 with theater-style seating, while the Hana holds a capacity of 450 to 900 guests. Eminence Hall, suited for medium-sized gatherings of up to 450 people, incorporates three stages as well as six-language simultaneous interpretation and broadcast equipment, various audio systems and lighting equipment. Banquet rooms on the higher floors, meanwhile, offer panoramic city views and elegant settings for lunch and dinner gatherings. The grande dame of the lot is the Concord Ballroom, with enough space for 900 people for a sit-down dinner and up to 1,000 people for a reception. This space further impresses with lighting equipment and audio systems facilitating the simultaneous interpretation of up to eight languages.

In addition to solid and strong WiFi signals, rooms are outfitted with mobile phones for use in town. Domestic calls within Japan as well as overseas phone calls to the United States, along with Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and the United Kingdom, can be placed free of charge, adding value with greater peace of mind during the trip. There is also a health club open to guests as well as a paved walking and running path that takes advantage of the neighborhood’s landscaping and scenery.
