Hilton has announced the signing of a management agreement for the first Waldorf Astoria in Japan with Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. Waldorf Astoria Tokyo Nihonbashi will be developed by Mitsui Fudosan and managed by Hilton.  


Located within a planned mixed-use development that will include office and retail spaces as well as luxury apartments, Waldorf Astoria Tokyo Nihonbashi will span nine stories, from levels 39 to 47.


The hotel will feature a total of 197 guest rooms ranging from 60 square meters onwards, three distinctive restaurants, and Peacock  Alley, the elegant lounge and bar synonymous with the Waldorf Astoria brand.


Waldorf Astoria Tokyo Nihonbashi will be located close to Tokyo’s top shopping area of Ginza as well as Tokyo  Station and the central business districts of Marunouchi, Yaesu and Otemachi and only 20 kilometres from Haneda Airport.


“Hilton was the first international brand to enter Japan and it has since established itself as an industry leader  that understands the market inside and out. We are excited to partner with Hilton to sign the first Waldorf  Astoria hotel in Japan and be a part of the luxury brand’s expansion in the country,” said Yutaka Kawamura,  Managing Officer and Hotels & Resorts General Manager, Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd.

“We are thrilled to continue our luxury expansion in Japan by introducing Waldorf Astoria to one of the world's most sought-after destinations. This follows our announcement of the LXR Hotels & Resorts brand debut in  Kyoto earlier this year. The continued growth of our luxury presence in Japan signals our commitment to bringing our renowned levels of hospitality and unparalleled service into the market to cater to discerning travellers both domestically and internationally,” said Matt Fry, senior vice president, development, Asia Pacific,  Hilton.
