Hotel Okura has released the details on their rooms and facilities for their 110 billion Yen Hotel Okura Tokyo redevelopment. The 508-room hotel is scheduled to open on September 12, 2019.

The redevelopment project includes a 188 meter tall office tower called Okura Prestige Tower, along with the 75 meter tall Okura Heritage Wing building which will include the Okura hotel. 368 hotel rooms will be located on floors 28 to 40 of the Prestige Tower, with another 140 rooms on floors 6 to 17 of the Prestige Tower. Standard room sizes are 50 ~ 60 sqm.

Nightly room rates are expected to be around 50,000 Yen in the Prestige Tower and 70,000 Yen in the Heritage Tower.

The previous Hotel Okura Tokyo opened on this site in 1962. The 400-room hotel hosted many foreign dignitaries before its closure in August 2015. Decorations and ornaments from the former lobby will be reused in the new main lobby.
