Hotel Gracery Shinjuku opens in Tokyo with Godzilla-themed rooms

Japanese hotelier Fujita Kanko opened the Hotel Gracery Shinjuku, the Hotel Gracery brand’s new flagship, in Kabukicho, Tokyo’s entertainment and nightlife hub in the Shinjuku ward. The 970-room hotel opens as part of a brand-new Kabukicho entertainment complex, Shinjuku Toho Building. The building also offers a 12-screen cinema complex, and various dining and amusement facilities.

The property has Godzilla-themed guestrooms. There are two types of Godzilla-themed rooms: the Godzilla Room, located on the top floor, has a Godzilla-themed interior including wall panels and a trick wall with special effects, a life-size replica of Godzilla’s claw looming over the beds, and a Godzilla figure standing in the room; and the Godzilla Room, where guests can bring home original Godzilla memorabilia not available anywhere else.

Guests can also choose one of six Godzilla View Rooms, where they can see from their windows a life-size replica of Godzilla’s head on the hotel’s eighth-floor terrace. The view rooms have the same interior as the hotel’s other guest rooms.
