Construction on a new hotel, tentatively named "Royal Park - The Haneda," began at Haneda Airport on May 17. The hotel will open at the same time as an expansion to the airport's international passenger terminal.

The Royal Park, an eight-story structure connected to the international terminal, will have a floor space of roughly 2200 square meters. It will offer direct access to the terminal's third-floor departures lobby, and contain on its fourth floor a lobby, front desk and restaurants. The building will have 315 guestrooms distributed between the second and eighth floors.

Royal Park's description of the new hotel's concept - which does not translate so eloquently into English - is "a box where dreams are seen." The Haneda Airport location will become "a stylish urban hotel with playfulness and fun throughout, as well as of course functionality and comfort, as a hotel that leaves a lasting impression on globetrotting travelers." The Royal Park will also offer services as "Japan's first transit hotel" by providing 17 guestrooms, "refreshment rooms" and other facilities within the terminal's secure zone for international transit passengers.

Tokyo International Air Terminal Corporation (TIAT), the company that administers and operates the terminal, wants the new accommodations to "become the Japanese hotel that is most accessible to the rest of the world. Our goal is that it will spread Japan's culture of hospitality." The Royal Park is scheduled to open in September 2014.
