Hotel New Grand
Designated a historic monument and considered one of the oldest western-style hotels in Japan, Hotel New Grand is the epitome of Yokohama history. Established in 1927, Hotel New Grand is an international hotel that has welcomed guests from all over the world. A relaxing respite in the heart of the city, this culturally rich hotel offers unparalleled views of Yamashita Park and Yokohama Bay.
Yokohama was a small fishing village up to the end of the feudal Edo period, when Japan held a policy of national seclusion, having little contact with foreigners. A major turning point in Japanese history happened in 1853, when U.S. Navy Commodore Matthew Perry arrived just south of Yokohama with a fleet of American warships, demanding that Japan open several ports for commerce, and the Tokugawa Shogun agreed by signing the Treaty of Peace and Amity. This opened Japan to the world, and Yokohama has served as a gateway to the Land of the Rising Sun for over 150 years, welcoming people and cultures from the West.
Over the years, the Hotel New Grand has welcomed many famous dignitaries and celebrities through its historic doors, including Charlie Chaplin, Babe Ruth, the Duke of Gloucester, and more. The famous Japanese master writer, Jiro Osaragi, was a resident of Hotel New Grand in room 318 for more than 10 years.
The classical form of the original Hotel New Grand harmonizes gracefully with the sophisticated modern design of the newer annexed Tower built in 1991. Traditional elegance and modern design blend within the hotel’s two buildings, and guests are sure to find accommodations best suited to their needs. History and culture emanate from this Yokohama hotel and create a treasured ambiance only found at this spectacular location.
