A Commitment for Evolution

The first Henn na Hotel opened March of 2015 in Nagasaki, Japan at the popular theme park, Huis Ten Bosch.  As the Guinness World Record Holder for the first robot-staffed hotel, the Henn na Hotel brand is known for evolution in design and technology.  Known for unique room features including LG Styler closets that freshens your clothing, Futon conditioners to keep the mattress at your ideal temperature, and in-room tablets, guests will experience a hotel stay like no other.

18 Henn na Hotels are now open throughout Japan, each located near train stations and popular attractions.  Each location boasts its own personality whether it be an animatronic guest service agent there to greet you, life-sized T-Rex or a hologram character.  The Henn na Hotel brand represents a commitment for evolution and the unique experience will take guests one step into the future.

Henn na Hotel New York will be the brand’s first hotel outside of Japan.  Establishing a new home in a city as innovative and revolutionary as the Henn na brand was crucial for its American debut.  Residing in the heart of Midtown New York City in the midst of the Hudson Yards revival, Henn na Hotel New York is part of NYC’s evolution.  While technology and excitement are core elements, Henn na Hotel New York will offer an elevated experience through luxurious amenities and guest service.

New York branded amenities will adorn the room including Greenwich Village based C.O. Bigelow bath amenities and Kassatex linen and bathrobes.  Technology will remain a key element, featuring the LG Styler closet seen in the Japanese locations, televisions that stream your personal devices and mobile room keys.  The most prominent representation of the Henn na brand can be seen in Henn na Hotel New York’s naturalistic guest reception.  Greeting visitors will be a life-sized animatronic T-Rex staged next to an impressive stone reception desk and Indonesian Rosewood bench, all in the cover of green ivy cascading throughout the space. 

Excitement meets comfort and luxury at the Henn na Hotel New York, premiering in the United States in 2021.
