Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, the iconic five-star flagship property of leading Japanese hospitality company Fujita Kanko, announced that the hotel has been designated “Best Luxury Hotel, Japan, 2013” by Business Destinations magazine.

The Business Destinations Travel Awards showcase companies whose products and services represent the pinnacle of the business travel industry. Voters include corporate travel executives and company travel buyers from Fortune 500 companies, MICE solution providers, members of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives and other influential members of the business travel community. Evaluated criteria include quality and range of services, sustainability practices/environmental awareness, online presence and business acumen.

“We are honored and humbled to be chosen as the best luxury hotel in Japan,” says Koichi Urashima, the hotel’s General Manager. “We will do our best to live up to the title. We pay careful attention to the needs of both business and leisure travelers, and this award is very gratifying.”

Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo was re-flagged in January after 20 years as Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Chinzan-so. Within six months of rebranding, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo was awarded five Red Pavilions by The Michelin Guide.

The hotel is known for its historic heritage and its lush Japanese garden, home to various botanical species, birds and insects – extremely rare in the middle of Tokyo. The hotel offers 260 rooms and suites; 12 restaurants; 36 meeting and banquet rooms, Tokyo’s largest meeting/banquet facilities, including one of the city’s biggest banquet rooms, accommodating up to 2,000 and including a tiered-seating amphitheater equipped for simultaneous interpretation; and Tokyo’s largest hotel spa. As part of the renovations and upgrading started at the time of the rebranding, a new one-of-a-kind facility, Serenity Garden, was opened on the hotel’s rooftop, occupying 16,145 square feet (1,500 square meters). With the scenic garden as a backdrop, the property is one of Japan’s most prestigious banquet and meeting venues, hosting international conventions and functions for royalty and state leaders.
