Marriott International has signed an agreement with East Japan Railway Company to bring the JW Marriott brand to Tokyo, Japan.
The hotel – slated to open in Spring 2025 – is to be situated in the heart of Tokyo between the Shinagawa and Tamachi Stations and will form an integral component of JR East’s extensive redevelopment project of the former JR Shinagawa Depot Railway Yard.
The interiors of the 200-key hotel will be led by Yabu Pushelberg, and are set to be balanced, subtle, and elegant with deep indigo as the accent colours.
An indulgent mix of dining options include an all-day restaurant with a semi-open kitchen, a specialty restaurant, and a lobby lounge which will feature a unique Croissant Bar. Plans also call for a spacious Executive Lounge, a 25-meter indoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, and the brand’s signature Spa by JW.
In addition, the hotel will feature 740 square metres of event space, as well as 250 square metres of pre-function event space, making it a prime destination for small to medium scale events.
“We are thrilled to work with East Japan Railway Company to expand one of our flagship brands in Japan with the signing the new JW Marriott Hotel Tokyo,” comments Karl Hudson, Area Vice President, Japan and Guam, Marriott International. “The new luxury hotel will mark the second JW Marriott hotel to open in Japan and will welcome guests to an oasis of peace and serenity in the bustling heart of Tokyo.”
