“CAFFE” on the 2nd floor lobby floor where I had dinner.
This is an all-day dining open from 6:00 am to midnight and had a wide range of menus.
The inside of the restaurant was made of wood and stone, so it had a cozy feeling.
The interior was fancy.
I enjoyed looking at the interesting designs in the restaurant.

It was a Japanese breakfast buffet, but the buffet table was lined with Western dishes such as bread, sausage and bacon.
Cereal, bread and fruit.
The fish was cooked on the spot and brought to my table.

The French restaurant “Cuisine [s] Michel Troisgros” has been awarded 2 stars in the Michelin Guide Tokyo and is a cozy shop that uses a lot of natural ingredients.
“Lounge” is a relaxing space that fuses traditional Japanese atmosphere based on Urban Modern.
At the “Pastry Shop” on the lobby level, you can take out various cakes, sweets such as macaroons, and freshly baked bread.
This is a shop of a chef called Koichi Sato, who has won two contests in France.
Facilities in the hotel
There was an indoor pool and fitness gym on the 28th floor, which is the hotel’s top floor. This is the reception desk. A separate fee was required for this service.
The indoor pool was 6m wide and 12.5m long, and it was more like an exercise pool. Children over 5 years old can get in if an adult is present.
This pool is open from 6am to 9pm on weekdays and from 7:30am to 9pm on weekends and holidays (admission is until 8am).
There was also a jacuzzi beside the pool.
There were deck chairs on the pool side, so you can take a break here.
The roof of the pool is made of glass so that light will shine through during the day.
There was a sauna next to the pool.
This is a gym. Because it is on the 28th floor, you can work out at night while looking at the beautiful night view of the city.
The aerobic machine has an LCD TV, so you can train while watching TV, and a 46-inch display is also installed in the gym where you can enjoy video and music.
There is water and towels prepared in the gym, as well as a sphygmomanometer and body composition monitor, so you can check your health.

Staff and guests
The front staff during check-in was Chinese who was good at Japanese. If the front desk was busy, staff came out from the back to help, so I did not have to wait at all.
There were guests from all over the world.
As soon as you go up the stairs at the west exit of Shinjuku Station, there is a shuttle bus stop.
A free shuttle bus runs every 20 minutes from 8:10 in the morning to 9:50 in the evening from No.35, which is in front of Odakyu Hulk at Shinjuku Station West Exit.
The shuttle bus on the day I stayed had an alternative operation with the Odakyu Bus.
I stayed at “Hyatt Regency Tokyo” this time, but the room that was first introduced was a smoking room, unlike my reservation. I immediately contacted the front desk and waited in the room for a while, then changed to a non-smoking room. However, at this time, because it was an old facility, it was said that there was a room where the smell remained because the room that had been used as a smoking room was cleaned and made into a non-smoking room. I used the gym and pool, but unlike city sports gyms, facilities were beautiful and there were not many people and I was able to spend a relaxing time. This is a hotel I recommend to people who would like to get away from their daily life and have a different experience.
