Tokyo's Imperial Hotel repurposes luxury rooms as rentals

Meals and laundry service offered with monthlong stays starting at $3,400

The hotel operator sees the rooms serving as a secondary workspace for executives.

TOKYO -- The Imperial Hotel Tokyo will convert 99 guest rooms into full-service rental apartments, offering meal and laundry options with dedicated staff as vacancy rates remain high from the pandemic.

The third floor of the tower building will be renovated, with rooms available for stays as short as five nights. Reservations are initially being accepted for March 15 through July 15. A roughly 30-sq.-meter room costs 360,000 yen ($3,440) for 30 nights, with a 50-sq.-meter room available for 600,000 yen.
