Marriott Signs First Aloft Hotel in Japan
Scheduled for Spring 2020 – 206 Rooms
Marriott has signed the first Aloft hotel in Japan. The new-build Aloft Tokyo Ginza is scheduled to open in spring 2020, just in time for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
The 16-storey hotel is expected to feature 206 loft-like guestrooms including four suites. True to the Aloft brand’s tech-forward DNA, guestrooms are also expected to feature keyless entry, enabling guests to use their smartphone or Apple watch as a room key.
Aloft Tokyo Ginza’s F&B options are likely to include The Warehouse – a semi-open kitchen concept with a wide range of buffet-style dining; the brand’s signature W XYZ bar, where guests can mix and mingle whilst sipping on signature cocktails and enjoying live music from the brand’s Live At Aloft Hotels program; and Re:fuelby Aloft , which offers those on the go a 24/7 a one-stop shop for convenient grab-and-go food options.
The hotel’s Re:charge fitness center will help guests to keep feet while away from home.
Located in Ginza, the upscale entertainment, shopping and dining district of Japan’s capital city, Aloft Tokyo Ginza will be less than a five-minute walk away from both Ginza Station and Higashi-Ginza Station. It’s also conveniently within walking distance to popular retail, dining and entertainment venues including Tokyu Plaza, Ginza Place by Sapporo Breweries and the recently opened Ginza Six Mall.
