The Mitsui Fudosan Group reopened the fully remodeled 550 rooms Mitsui Garden Hotel PRANA Tokyo Bay in Urayasu City, Chiba, on July 10, 2015, following completion of remodeling work.

This hotel has among the largest number of rooms of any of the 18 Mitsui Garden Hotels located throughout Japan. Since opening in June 2007, it has welcomed approximately 3.8 million guests, mainly tourist visitors to Tokyo Disney Resort® or the Tokyo metropolitan area, and has received an outstanding evaluation from guests.

Remodeling of the hotel returned to the origins of its name, Prana (which means “life force” and “breath”), with a concept of “an urban oasis that stimulates the senses.” Renovation work was focused on the guest room floors (all rooms and corridors) and the lobby area.

Overview of Remodeling

  1. The main lobby that has been redesigned around the theme of a “Prana forest” is equipped with additional benches and sofas to create greater comfort while checking in or out. Moreover, we have installed a green wall of living vegetation that contributes to the warm and comfortable atmosphere. A work of art, the Prana Tree, has been installed in the center of the lobby for taking commemorative photos.
  2. A Kids’ Lobby has been newly built for families with children to enjoy having a rest at ease.
  3. More rooms for four or more guests have been created in response to the demand to cater to families or groups of friends, including by newly installed terrace bunks built in the style of a treehouse in rooms for six guests.
  4. Digital signboards have been installed to provide easily understandable information within and outside the hotel and shared-area signs have been renewed.
  5. Initiatives for the environment have been enhanced, including using LED lighting throughout the hotel and equipping the guest parking lot with electric vehicle chargers.

Details of the Lobby Renewal

Prana Lobby

The main lobby has been reborn in the image of a “Prana forest.” Additional benches and sofas create greater comfort while checking in or out, and a green wall of living vegetation that contributes to the warm and comfortable atmosphere has been installed. The Prana Tree, a work of art symbolic of the current renewal, has also been installed in the center of the lobby. This photogenic artwork is comprised of five layers that represent the transition of the four seasons, and guests can enjoy finding the birds and animals living there, go inside the tree and take a commemorative photo as a memory of their stay at the hotel.

Kids Lobby

The Kids Lobby has been newly built for families with children to enjoy resting at ease while waiting to check in or out. It is a pop-influenced, colorful space that offers a huge sofa that makes it feel as though guests are lost in a fairy tale, animal rides, screens showing movies and other devices for enjoyment.
