Marriott Hotel opens in Nagasaki

2 Comments

Marriott has opened a hotel in Kyushu. Directly connected with JR Nagasaki Station, the Nagasaki Marriott Hotel provides guests with convenient access to Nishi Kyushu Shinkansen and local JR lines, whilst Fukuoka Airport is less than two hours’ drive away.

Nearby landmarks include the new Dejima Messe Nagasaki Convention Hall and the iconic UNESCO World Heritage-listed Glover Garden, as well as the Atomic Bomb Museum and Peace Park.

Travelers looking to further explore the city’s landmarks can hop on a boat ride from Nagasaki Port to another UNESCO World Heritage site - Hashima Island, better known as Battleship Island, famous for its modern ruins that embody Japan’s past manufacturing revolution.

“We are delighted to expand our portfolio of flagship Marriott Hotels in Japan with the opening of the first Marriott hotel in Nagasaki,” said Karl Hudson, Area Vice President Japan and Guam, Marriott International. “As global travelers’ needs and expectations evolve, so does Marriott Hotels, which have always led the travel industry with innovations that embrace style, design and technology. True to the brand’s rich legacy of placing people first, Nagasaki Marriott Hotel is set to serve guests in this wonderful city that awaits exploration of its fascinating history and culture."

The design narrative of Nagasaki Marriott Hotel by renowned architect Kume Sekkei is a representation of Nagasaki’s past, with the exterior inspired by a cruise ship, whilst interiors pay homage to Nagasaki’s port and sea with patterned marble and natural colors.

Two-thirds of the 207 rooms and suites are equipped with balconies, whilst the hotel’s 242 square-meter Imperial Suite, is one of the largest hotel suites in Kyushu.

Facilities at the hotel includes a variety of F&B outlets, Japan’s first M Club executive lounge, a fitness center, and an 160-square-meter conference room equipped with a terrace that overlooks the city.

“We are very excited to welcome guests to Nagasaki, a city with a rich and varied history that is steeped in fascinating traditions and offers visitors a wonderful glimpse into the long and storied history of Japan,” said Cy West, General Manager, Nagasaki Marriott Hotel. “We are raising the bar for hospitality in Nagasaki with a heartfelt service reflecting the Marriott brand’s living legacy of placing people first. By providing experiences elevated beyond the everyday we aim to make Nagasaki a must-see destination for domestic and international travelers alike.”

Madness. With no casino ( excuse me..IR resort), fast shrinking Japanese population and soon less tourists again because of economic decline of China, there is too much hotel capacity in Nagasaki and Japan.

again, no mid or long term thinking

Exactly what Nagasaki needed to attract tourists who don't always feel comfortable in Ryokan or Business Hotels.

@robert maes: Too much capacity in Japan? Maybe in the Business Hotel sector - most certainly not in the Western Style higher end.
