Accor expands portfolio with 22 hotels in Japan

1 Comment

Accor has doubled the group’s footprint in Japan with the opening of 22 hotels and over 6,000 rooms in the country.

Prior to the addition of the 22 new hotels, Accor was operating 24 hotels in Japan, under eight brands: MGallery, Pullman, Swissôtel, Mercure, Novotel, ibis, ibis Styles and ibis budget.

In addition to the twelve Grand Mercure and ten Mercure hotels that joined Accor’s network on 1 April 2024, there are two more properties currently in the group’s pipeline.

The new hotels range in location from the northernmost prefecture of Hokkaido to the southernmost prefecture of Okinawa.

“As Japan continues to welcome back international travel and experiences a steady recovery of the tourism industry, we are excited to add these great hotels to our portfolio and in doing so we are doubling our group’s presence in Japan,” said Garth Simmons, Chief Operating Officer, Premium, Midscale and Economy Division for Accor in Asia. “As the desire to connect with local culture and nature is increasingly in demand amongst travellers today, we offer our loyal guests just that; a range of local experiences offered in charming coastal towns and amongst nature. Popular destinations such as Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto will always remain in high demand, however if you want to truly immerse yourself in the authentic culture of a country, sometimes you need to escape the big cities and head off the beaten path.”

The 22 hotels are:

Grand Mercure Sapporo Odori Park

Hopefully they'll show the local chains how to serve a breakfast worth eating.
