Pullman to Develop First Hotel in Japan

TOKYO—AccorHotels’ Pullman Tokyo Tamachi is being developed here as part of the MSB Tamachi mixed-use complex and will open fall 2018.

With 143 rooms, the contemporary hotel aims to connect the international style of Pullman with a touch of Japanese art and culture. The business and leisure hotel includes meeting facilities and distinctive dining concepts.

The property is directly connected to the JR Tamachi Station exit and a short distance from the Toei Subway Mita Line and Haneda International Airport.

“Japan keeps attracting more and more international travelers, with historically high growth rate recorded in the beginning of 2017,” said Patrick Basset, COO, Upper Southeast and Northeast Asia, AccorHotels. “The increasing inbound market, especially from Korea and other Asian countries—China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Vietnam—is on a continuous positive trend, which will be amplified as the country will benefit from the worldwide attention with the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympic Games.”

In Japan, AccorHotels has 12 hotels in its network across Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Sapporo and Okinawa. The brands include Swissotel, Pullman, Novotel, Mercure, ibis and ibis Styles.
