My Melody Themed Hotel Room Opens at Keio Plaza Hotel Tama

26.June.2019 | FEATURES / SPOT

Two new guest rooms opened at Keio Plaza Hotel Tama on June 15 themed on the Sanrio characters My Melody and the Little Twin Stars (Kiki & Lala).

 

This year’s Sanrio Character Awards were held earlier this month. Both My Melody and the Little Twin Stars proved their popularity with fans as they came in 4th and 6th place respectively. With that in mind, what does Keio Plaza Hotel Tama have in store for fans of the characters in their new guest rooms? I’m here to let you in on the full scoop today.

Keio Plaza Hotel is about a 30-minute train ride from Shinjuku and a 3-minute walk from Keio-Tama-Center Station. It’s also close to the city of Chofu where the Rugby World Cup will be held this fall as well as located in West Tokyo, an area enjoyed by foreign tourists.

 

There are two of each rooms available and they will be permanent rooms at the hotel. The hotel already has four Hello Kitty Rooms which were introduced in November 2014 and renovated with the opening of the new My Melody and Little Twin Stars Rooms, making for a total of eight Sanrio character rooms at the hotel. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the My Melody Room.

I headed to the My Melody Room. As I approached the door and saw the flower above the room number my excitement began to skyrocket.

On the beds are cushions exclusive to the hotel made in the image of the forest’s flowers. Sleeping here will have you feeling like you are sleeping right there in the forest.

Illustrated on the foot throw is My Melody and her closest friend, Flat. The two of them enjoying resting their heads on mushroom pillows is a cute sight.

All of the rooms have a USB port next to the beds so you can charge your phone by your pillow even without a Japanese plug adaptor.
