    Marriott International, Inc. has recently announced the opening of the Courtyard by Marriott Tokyo Station. Located in the Kyobashi commercial district, the 150-room hotel is just four minutes on foot from the bullet-train-serviced Yaesu side of Tokyo Station. It occupies the first four floors of the newly built Kyobashi Trust Tower, a 21-storey building conveniently situated on the Chuo-dori thoroughfare between Ginza and Nihonbashi, both renowned for their flagship boutiques and centuries-old shops. The Tokyo Metro Ginza Line is one minute from the front door.For business travellers who seek a distinctive experience, Courtyard by Marriott Tokyo Station offers four thoughtfully designed room types ranging in size from 16 to 33 square metres, inviting public spaces in which to unwind and a mix of services that help guests stay connected, productive and balanced. Self-service kiosks expedite check-in and check-out, and for the first time ever in Japan, keyless entry allows guests to use their smartphone to access their room. Women-only rooms provide enhanced privacy and amenities for female guests, while 24-hour gym access and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the premises enable all guests to make the most of their time in this dynamic capital, whether working or relaxing.

    Guests and locals can take full advantage of the mild spring weather at GG Co., a first-floor café and bakery with terrace seating. The adjacent Lavarock restaurant, named for its lava-rock grill, serves contemporary bistro fare and grilled specialities from breakfast through bar time and offers semi-private seating. For registered guests, a library bar on the fourth floor provides casual space for impromptu meetings, while private gatherings and conferences of up to 130 people may be accommodated in four separate and fully equipped meeting venues on site.
