TOKYO, JAPAN—Marriott International, Inc. recently opened the Courtyard by Marriott Tokyo Station located in the Kyobashi commercial district. The 150-room hotel occupies the first four floors of the newly built Kyobashi Trust Tower, a 21-story building situated on the Chuo-dori thoroughfare between Ginza and Nihonbashi.
Simon Cooper, Marriott International’s president and managing director for Asia Pacific, stated, “We are delighted to be opening, in this prime location, the second Courtyard branded hotel in Japan. Uniting innovative technology with contemporary design and comfort, it is a showcase example of Marriott International’s vision for smart business travel. That model comes to life in destinations around the world thanks to the expertise, knowledge and skills of local partners who share our values. In Mori Trust we have found an excellent partner and we look forward to a long association with them to ensure the ongoing success of this exciting hotel.”
Courtyard by Marriott Tokyo Station offers four room types ranging in size from 16 to 33 square meters, inviting public spaces in which to unwind and a mix of services that help guests stay connected, productive and balanced. Self-service kiosks expedite check-in and check-out, and for the first time ever in Japan, keyless entry allows guests to use their smartphone to access their room. Women-only rooms provide enhanced privacy and amenities for female guests.
