Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and Mitsui Fudosan Co., a Japanese real estate development company, have announced plans for an all-new hotel in the heart of Tokyo's bustling Otemachi business district. Part of a mixed-use development, the hotel is set to open in the spring of 2020 with approximately 190 guest rooms.
The hotel will occupy the upper six floors of a 39-story office tower, and will be close to transit routes and other attractions in downtown Tokyo.
“We have been seeking the right opportunity to extend our presence here and are excited to work in partnership with Mitsui Fudosan to introduce a new Four Seasons experience in Tokyo, one that that will appeal to business and leisure travellers, as well as the domestic market,” J. Allen Smith, president and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, said in a statement. “Japanese outbound travelers represent a significant number of Four Seasons guests around the world and we look forward to offering our Japanese guests a new opportunity to experience Four Seasons at home.”
The new Four Seasons hotel in Otemachi is set to complement the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi. The company has operated hotels in Tokyo for more than 25 years and will open the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto in the fall of 2016.
