As the flagship brand of the “THE” series, “ICONIC” embodies the essence of symbolic luxury and premium hospitality. The launch marks the fourth establishment under the “ICONIC” brand line and the second property for Mitsubishi Estate Hotels & Resorts Co., Ltd. in Nagoya.

Located in the historic Chunichi Building, a symbol of Nagoya for over half a century, the new hotel is strategically positioned to cater to business and international leisure travellers. It reflects the rich cultural heritage of the Chubu region, geographically located in the central part of Honshu showcasing traditional Japanese crafts and products in its facilities and guest rooms. From Arimatsu Shibori textiles to Tokoname, Seto and Mino ware pottery and ceramics, every aspect of the hotel is a tribute to the region’s craftsmanship.

The hotel’s prime location on the 7th floor and 24th to 32nd floors of the freshly redeveloped Chunichi building offers breathtaking views of iconic cityscapes, such as the Nagoya Castle, Mirai Tower and Oasis 21 among others, also creating mesmerizing night views of the city of Nagoya and its vibrant Sakae district.

The hotel entrance sets the tone for a unique experience, adorned with a 5m x 5m masterpiece by Syuhei Hasado, a renowned artist in the century-old art of Japanese “Sakan” plaster works. The elegant simplicity of the front lobby on the 24th floor hints at the underlying aesthetics and philosophy of wabi-sabi.

The guest rooms feature three distinctive design concepts: “History”, “Present” and “Timeless”, providing guests with a glimpse into the rich history and culture of Chubu. Its 246 rooms all offer stunning views of Nagoya city and the surrounding mountains as well as a unique perspective on the region’s powerful crafts and manufacturing incorporated in the many materials and products of the region they contain. The Standard floors provide comfortably-sized rooms featuring the beautiful charm of Japanese design, while the 32nd Premium floor stands out with particularly spacious rooms with over 55㎡.

The Royal Park Hotel Iconic Nagoya boasts an array of amenities, including the classy “Bar – Sou” and outstanding restaurants such as “THE 7th TERRACE,” a stunning rooftop dining venue. “Shunju” offers a luxurious space blending the past, present, and future of East and West, serving authentic Shanghai cuisine. The first Nagoya branch of globally recognised “SUSHI GINZA ONODERA”, offers authentic Japanese cuisine.

The hotel’s unique Ryurei Tea Room, located within “THE TEA LOUNGE”, offers a space where guests can experience the culture of Japanese tea ceremonies in a relaxed and inviting setting.

Mr. Ken Echizenya, General Manager of The Royal Park Hotel Iconic Nagoya, expressed his pride in opening the hotel in the historic Chunichi Building: “We are moving toward an era where the hotel itself is a travel destination. I would like guests both from Japan and abroad to experience this. As one of the top Japanese hotel brands, The Royal Park Hotel Iconic Nagoya aims to express the essence of Japanese hospitality and enable our guests to immerse into an unforgettable and authentic Chubu experience.
