The Keikyu Corporation announced that their Grand Pacific Le Daiba hotel in Odaiba, Tokyo will begin offering a Gundam-themed room for customers to stay in beginning June 29. The room is being offered in collaboration with the Gundam Front Tokyo entertainment complex located near the newly rebuilt 1/1 Gundam statue.
The "Room-G Special Type" suite features an Earth Federation-themed living room and and Zeon-themed bedroom, totaling 84 square meters (about 900 square feet) of space. The room will feature Gundam art on its walls, as well as Gundam-themed chairs, room keys, towels, and more. Visitors staying in the room will also be able to order from a special Gundam-themed room service menu. While the room and hotel are located near the 1/1 Gundam statue, it will not be viewable from the room.
The room will cost 26,000 yen (about US$330) a person if it is reserved for two, and 25,000 yen (about US$317) a person if it is reserved for three. Up to three individuals may stay in the room at one time, and only one-night stays in the room can be booked.
The hotel is also offering a "Room-G Standard Type" room plan, where parts of a standard 42-square-meter (about 450 square feet) room are arranged to be Gundam themed. The Standard Type room will cost 13,500 yen (about US$171) per person per night when reserved for two, and 12,500 yen (about US$158) per person per night when reserved for three.
Each room will also come with tickets for the Gundam Front complex. Reservations for the rooms will open June 11.
