7 Comments

Marriott has signed a management agreement for a new Luxury Collection hotel in Kyoto, Japan.

The 161-room Hotel The Mitsui Kyoto, a Luxury Collection Hotel & Spa, is expected to open in November.

The hotel will be the fourth Luxury Collection property in Japan following Suiran, The Prince Gallery Tokyo Kioicho, and Iraph Sui.

For more than 300 years, the site of the new hotel was the residence of the Kitake, the executive branch of the Mitsui family, whose patriarch had constructed a home facing Nijo Castle, which housed the Tokugawa Shogunate in 17th-century Kyoto. Today the castle is an UNESCO World Heritage-listed site.

“We are pleased to partner with Mitsui Fudosan Group in adding Hotel the Mitsui Kyoto, a Luxury Collection Hotel & Spa to our iconic portfolio in Japan,” said Paul Foskey, Chief Development Officer, Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “Set to be the fourth Luxury Collection hotel in Japan, this property is testament to Marriott International’s continued growth in the region.”

The architectural team behind the 161-room Hotel The Mitsui Kyoto is led by celebrated Akira Kuryu whilst the interiors of the hotel’s lobby and guest rooms by André Fu.

The hotel will also feature over 1,300 square meters of landscaped strolling gardens designed by Shunsaku Miyagi and the hotel’s restaurants and thermal spring onsen are being designed by Yohei Akao.

Was actually supposed to open at the end of July, but was pushed back due to Covid.

Believe it or not, there is still a decent market for luxury hotels in Japan, even now. This hotel will do very well when things return to normal. (or near enough to normal)

Wow. This has my vote. If this happens then I will defiantly stay there on my next trip to Japan.

Not just hotels. The top end of the market is generally unaffected by these things. The extremely wealthy have so much money floating around that these kinds of luxury places generally still keep churning over.

Domestic tourism will bounce back extremely quickly as those who would have traveled internationally can no longer do so. They will seek alternatives.

To illustrate this, the local BMW and Ferrari dealerships have been booming selling the top end stuff.
