With a great location, these two distinctive luxury lifestyle hotels will provide the best dining, entertainment, first-class services and amenities for urban travellers.
Edition properties combine the personal, intimate, individualised experience for which Ian Schrager is known with the global reach, operational expertise and scale of Marriott.
“We are thrilled to sign two new Edition hotels in Tokyo, where pulsing modernity meets vibrant customs, compelling cuisine and much more,” said Anthony Capuano, executive vice president and global chief development office, Marriott International.
“Tokyo serves as the perfect setting for the Edition brand, presenting the best of the world’s cultural and social milieu for travellers who seek exceptional places and experiences.”
The Tokyo Edition, Ginza will be a newly built 13-storey standalone property with 80 guestrooms. Located just off Chuo Street, the main shopping street in Ginza, the hotel site affords convenient access to Ginza-Itchome, Ginza and Tokyo stations, as well as shopping complexes, restaurants and tourist attractions such as Tokyo Imperial Palace. Construction is expected to start in May next year, with an opening planned for March 2020.
“We are pleased to introduce the Edition hotels, which propose new culture and new luxury in major cities of the world to Tokyo's central business district and the major shopping district. I am convinced that from these two Edition hotels new values of a new era that attract the world’s people can be sent to the world in 2020 when the Tokyo Olympic Games will be held,” said Miwako Date, president & chief executive officer of Mori Trust.
Meanwhile, the 200-room Tokyo Edition Toranomon will be rebuilt from the former Pastoral Building, a mixed-use project comprising offices, residences and a medical centre. Located in Minato ward, the hotel site is a walking distance from Kamiyacho and Roppongi-Itchome stations and a short drive to Toranomo and Tokyo station as well as retail and dining facilities, with the hotel opening planned for 2020.
