Rent a 5-star hotel for 55 million yen per night

Mandarin Oriental TokyoThe Mandarin Oriental Tokyo, an upscale hotel in Tokyo central, is offering a package to rent the entire hotel for 55 million yen ($660,000) per day.

The luxury plan marks the hotel’s fifth anniversary and extends to November 2011. The package includes accommodation for all 178 rooms, including the 250-square-meter Presidential Suite, and a buffet-style reception for 500 people.

A hotel official said the price is “much less expensive” than renting the entire hotel at the usual rates, which would total about 70 million yen.

The hotel offered a similar rental plan in the past, but there were no takers.
