The Hotel New Grand (ホテルニューグランド) (JASDAQ9720) is a historic hotel in Yokohama, Japan, overlooking Yamashita Park. It opened in 1927, four years after the Great Kantō earthquake devastated much of the city.

The hotel was used as accommodation by American troops during the Occupation of Japan following World War II; one of the hotel suites is set aside and maintained just as it was furnished when General Douglas MacArthur stayed there, his first night in Japan during the Occupation.[1]

In 1991, an eighteen-story tower was built as an expansion of the hotel.
