IHG Signs First Kimpton Hotel in Japan

IHG has signed a deal with Tsukada Global Holdings Inc. to expand its Kimpton boutique hotel brand to Tokyo, Japan.

 Scheduled to open in 2020, the Kimpton Tokyo Shinjuku by IHG will feature 162-rooms, a choice of F&B outlets, three inventive meeting spaces that will be able to accommodate up to 300 people, a wellness studio, and a multi-function chapel.

Japan is the newest market for the Kimpton brand, continuing the recent growth trajectory with signings in Greater China and South-East Asia, as well as the 2017 opening of Kimpton De Witt in Amsterdam.

There are few places more fitting for a unique luxury hotel than Japan’s Shinjuku, the world-famous skyscraper district that showcases many of Tokyo’s tallest buildings, as well as department stores, subterranean malls, electronics shops, and Kabukicho, one of Japan’s largest and most lively entertainment districts. It’s also home to the world’s busiest railway station, which serves more than two million passengers every day.

Great food sits at the heart of the Kimpton ethos, and Kimpton Tokyo Shinjuku will bring this to life with three locally-inspired restaurants that will allow guests and locals alike to embark on uniquely distinct dining experiences.

 In true Kimpton style, the property will offer signature perks such as complimentary morning coffee and tea in the living room lobby and an evening social hour, giving guests an opportunity to unwind and recharge.

Kenneth Macpherson, CEO of Europe Middle East Asia and Africa (EMEAA), IHG, said, “It’s wonderful to see the Kimpton brand gaining such momentum in Asia and across the globe. It is one of the world’s most beloved luxury lifestyle brands, with each hotel bringing to life a unique character. This hotel’s thoughtful approach to design will highlight the best of Tokyo’s vibrant Shinjuku district, providing truly unique guest experiences with personal service. With a strong and growing interest for luxury hotels and lifestyle brands, Kimpton Tokyo Shinjuku will undoubtedly have a bright future of growth, and we look forward to growing the brand in Japan and throughout the region.”

There are currently 66 Kimpton hotels open globally, with another 20 in the pipeline, including Kimpton Bali, Kimpton Shanghai Jing’an, Kimpton Resort Sanya Haitang Bay and Kimpton Hotel Taipei.

IHG currently has 33 hotels operating under three brands in Japan, including: InterContinental, ANA Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, with a growing future pipeline, including ANA InterContinental Beppu Resort & Spa, Hotel Indigo Hakone Gora and Hotel Indigo Inuyama Urakuen Garden.
