What kind of hotel do you provide for foreign VIPs?

When a foreign VIP decides to come to Japan, he or she will stay at a hotel unless there is something special.

What kind of hotel should we provide for VIPs?

In general, it is advisable to have a hotel in the category of luxury hotels.

The most famous Japanese hotels include the Imperial Hotel and the Palace Hotel, and foreign hotels include the Hilton and the Ritz-Carlton.

When foreigners visit Japan, they often stay for long periods of time.

If your visit is longer than a week, a gym or pool at your hotel will help you get some exercise and make your visit more satisfying.

Why provide luxury hotels for foreign VIPs?

There are different reasons for providing luxury hotels.

We will explain three reasons for providing luxury hotels for foreign VIPs.

Safety

Luxury hotels are safe and comfortable with high security.

A hotel is basically a facility that any person can enter, but for this reason, it is necessary to ensure security.

This is because it is impossible to sleep peacefully if any person can come and go.

In many upscale hotels, a card key must be held up to enter the guest room floor, and only guests can reach the front of the room.

Another unique feature of luxury hotels is that doormen prevent intruders from entering the hotel’s entrance.

Luxury hotels are the best facilities for foreign VIPs to stay in safety.

To help you relax

If you are a foreigner staying for a long period of time, you will need time to rest.

Foreigners, especially those visiting for business, are often tired from meeting so many different people everywhere they go.

In these cases, time spent at the hotel is very important, and it is possible to immerse oneself in the work alone.

A luxury hotel will provide you with enough facilities to spend time in your room and relax without any inconvenience.

To make your visit to Japan a fulfilling one, you should have a luxury hotel where you can rest both body and soul.

Good quality of service

Luxury hotels have hotel staff that provide the service they deserve.

They will sense how tired you are and offer you a fruit or relaxation massage that will make you happy.

The higher the quality of service, the more fulfilling the time spent at the hotel.

We would like to provide a luxury hotel for VIPs to make them truly satisfied with their visit to Japan.

Which is the best room for a foreign VIP?

When it comes time to book a hotel room, many people are unsure of the various room types that exist.

From here, we will explain which category of room is best to prepare for a foreign VIP.

suite

The first room that comes to mind for VIPs is probably the suite.

The word “suite” in “suite” means “connecting room” and refers to a room consisting of two or more rooms.

The large wardrobe and spacious bathrooms give the impression that these rooms are truly for VIPs.

Not only are the rooms spacious, but the access to the lounge and the free use of the fitness center and other facilities will keep you occupied for an extended stay at the hotel.

executive

Many hotels have executive floors or special floors called club floors, which are recommended room categories for VIPs.

A small hotel within a hotel, prepared to welcome executive guests, with its own front desk, lounge and restaurant.

Rooms are also different from those on a typical floor, being larger and sometimes with higher quality beds and facilities, making them suitable for VIPs.

If you cannot reserve a suite, or if the hotel does not have a suite, reserve a room on the executive floor.

Superior/Deluxe/Moderate

Superior and Deluxe rooms, which are often positioned as lower ranks of Executive, are also suitable for VIPs.

However, it will only be for a short stay and the rooms will have to be spacious.

Different hotels have different names and designations, so Superior may be the lowest rank.

If you are only staying for one night or have more than 50 square meters of space, you can book a Superior or Deluxe room for VIPs.

It is a good idea to arrange rooms so that there is no inconvenience in terms of room size or facilities.

Recommended hotels for mid- to long-term stays for foreign VIPs
