The project is located in Hibiya, the center of Tokyo, where long ago lacked social gatherings and entertainment facilities.  However, during the Meiji era (1868-1912), Western-style theaters such as the Yurakucho Theater and the Imperial Theater opened and in the Showa period (1926-1989), many more theaters and cinemas opened in the Hibiya area, including the Tokyo Takarazuka Theater and the Nissay Theater.  Consequently, the area evolved into the number one “theater and movie town” in East Asia and still continues to be loved by many as a place destination for entertainment.

In such a town overflowing with curiosity, “MERCURE TOKYO HIBIYA” opened focusing on the locality rooted in this area.  To offer an interior design full of culture and character that assimilates to the features of Hibiya, the design is inspired by the iconic stage art, glittering costumes of performers, and filming equipment.  To deliver a fascinating experience, different themes are offered for each of the space where guests can sometimes become the main character or even the audience – as a result, a story within the hotel is made by spending time at the hotel.

The “M LOUNGE” facilitated exclusively for overnight guests, offers gallery-like features such as art, books, and graphics under the theme of “Cinema,” creating a unique and fulfilling lounge space followed by a spacious sofa set, co-working table, library, which are arranged in a layout that allows guests to choose their favorite place for work, meals, hobbies, etc., according to their needs.
