Tokyo Marriott Hotel launched

Marriott International opened the Tokyo Marriott Hotel on a hilltop address known locally as Gotenyama. 

The opening of the property represents the hospitality company’s 12th hotel in Japan, and the third under its flagship Marriott Hotels brand, which comprises 500 properties in nearly 60 countries. The 249-room hotel is near the Tokaido bullet train station, as well as Haneda Airport and the Yamanote Line circling central Tokyo.

Tokyo Marriott Hotel offers access to the two main zones where the majority of the 2020 Olympic competition venues will be located, and two of its three restaurants specialize in traditional Japanese cuisine. A rebranding of the former Gotenyama Garden Hotel Laforet Tokyo, the refurbished and renovated property is operated by Mori Trust Hotels & Resorts, which entered into a management agreement with Marriott International.
