1 Comment

Marriott has expanded its popular Aloft Hotels brand to Japan with the opening of the Aloft Tokyo Ginza.

With its highly original design conceptualized as a nod to Ginza’s “Miyuki-zoku” youth subculture movement of the 1960s, Aloft Tokyo Ginza showcases an eclectic mix of neon colors, graffiti, and urban art inspired by Tokyo’s iconic street culture.

The Aloft Tokyo Ginza is just a short walk away from Ginza Six shopping mall, the Mitsukoshi Ginza department store, Tsukiji Market, and the historic Kabuki-za theater. The hotel’s proximity to the Ginza and Higashi-Ginza stations provides guests with quick and easy access to other areas of Tokyo and beyond.

“We are thrilled to see the arrival of the Aloft brand in Japan with the opening of Aloft Tokyo Ginza,” said Rajeev Menon, President, Asia Pacific (excluding Greater China), Marriott International. “With 17 different brands now present in Japan, the debut of Aloft Hotels further underscores Marriott International’s commitment to growing its footprint across the country. With it lively in-hotel social scene, and innovative music and art programming, Aloft Tokyo Ginza is set to enhance the ‘always-on’ traveler’s stay and play experience in Tokyo.”

The hotel is home to 205 guest rooms each with nine-foot-ceilings, free Wi-Fi, 55-inch flatscreen 4K televisions, and bathrooms that feature a walk-in rainfall shower.

Guests at the Aloft Tokyo Ginza can choose from a variety of F&B outlets and make use of the hotel’s complimentary fitness center which is open 24/7.

“Ginza is the must-see destination for every visitor to Tokyo, and what better way to experience Ginza than through the brand new Aloft Tokyo Ginza, which captures the energy and color of Tokyo’s most famous district,” said Hiro Kosugi, General Manager, Aloft Tokyo Ginza. “We look forward to welcoming guests to our hotel, a new urban hub where great music, captivating art, and social connections take center stage.”

Used one once on a business trip. Never again. Grotesquely overpriced for what you get, especially the foods in the little mini mart. There are better choices with free buffet breakfasts for less money, including some with kitchenettes.
