IHG has announced the opening of Kimpton Tokyo Shinjuku in 2020, a 162-room bespoke hotel, with Tsukada Global Holdings Inc, the owner of Kimpton Tokyo Shinjuku and a long-time IHG development partner.
The hotel will feature bold, playful design, award-winning dining and unique amenities, with three inventive meeting spaces that accommodate up to 300 people, a well-equipped wellness studio, and a multi-function chapel.
As the industry pioneer that first introduced the boutique concept to the US more than 35 years ago, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is renowned for making travellers feel genuinely cared for through thoughtful perks and amenities and a sincerely personal style of guest service. Each hotel is individually designed to blend the surrounding environment with local culture to deliver a memorable boutique experience – both authentic and reflective of the location.
Japan is the newest market for the Kimpton brand, continuing the recent growth trajectory with signings in Greater China and South-East Asia, as well as the 2017 opening of Kimpton De Witt in Amsterdam.
Masayuki Tsukada, President and CEO of TSUKADA GLOBAL HOLDINGS Inc, said: “We are very proud to continue our strong partnership with IHG and introduce the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand to Japan. With construction having commenced and completion expected in early 2020, we will be well-positioned to take advantage of the increased domestic and international luxury tourism in the lead up to Tokyo 2020. We are confident that Kimpton’s striking modern luxury experience will stand out among its more traditional nearby hotel neighbours and will be a story of success.”
There are currently 66 Kimpton hotels open globally, with another 20 in the pipeline, including Kimpton Bali, Kimpton Shanghai Jing’an, Kimpton Resort Sanya Haitang Bay and Kimpton Hotel Taipei.
IHG currently has 33 hotels operating under three brands in Japan, including: InterContinental, ANA Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, with a growing future pipeline, including ANA InterContinental Beppu Resort & Spa, Hotel Indigo Hakone Gora and Hotel Indigo Inuyama Urakuen Garden.
