Yes, Godzilla is finally making his way back to Tokyo after he fucked shit up and then became a city’s hero in last year’s semi-good remake. But this time, he’ll be stationary and staring at you while you sleep. Creepy? Nah. But Hotel Gracery in Shinjuku is giving the people what they want on April 24, when they kick off their grand opening with some Godzilla-themed goodness.
The 30-story hotel sits on top of the Shinkuku’s Toho Cinema, and, yes, Godzilla’s giant head is currently being constructed so that it will peek out of the roof. Those on the street will be able to look up and literally feel like the creature is watching over them. I can’t imagine small children will love this.
And renderings featured on Cinema Cafe show that an observation deck will also be built, that way you can get up close and personal with the beast himself. So yes, this will virtually be selfie stick city.
If the observation deck isn’t doing it for you, you can also stay in the “Godzilla Room.” Yes. That’s what it’s called. So as you can imagine, this entire room is filled to the brim with memorabilia, his hand reaching out into the room over your bed and a huge statue of the Kaiju. You will also find Godzilla staring at you in the bathroom from time to time.
The hotel will also feature two more Godzilla-themed dwellings appropriately titled, “Godzilla View Rooms.” If you’re not into his giant hand cascading over your head while you sleep, Godzilla is just chilling outside your window in this lodging experience.
If you’re looking for a quirky, yet upscale, hotel experience in Japan, Hotel Gracery’s Godzilla rooms could be the perfect choice. The Godzilla Rooms start at 39,800 yen ($334) during weekdays and 49,800 yen ($417) on weekends and holidays. The Godzilla View Rooms start at 15,000 yen ($125) a night. I’ll only go if the prehistoric alpha predator from the 2014 movie starts battling Godzilla outside my window, though.
