Marriott Hotels, the flagship brand of Marriott International, and Miyako Hotels & Resorts have announced the highly anticipated opening of the Osaka Marriott Miyako Hotel, the first property for the brand in Osaka and the fourth in Japan.
Marriott Hotels has partnered with Miyako Hotels & Resorts, a subsidiary of the Kintetsu Corporation, to create the new co-branded hotel in Kintetsu’s “Abeno Harukas”, a brand new 300-meter ultra-high rise complex with 60 stories above ground and five stories underground, making it the tallest building in Japan.
All 360 guest rooms and the hotel’s signature ZK restaurant are located on the top floors of the building, boasting breathtaking views of Osaka from every angle and positioning the hotel as the new landmark of this dynamic city.
With a prime location in front of Osaka Abenobashi Station, the Osaka Marriott Miyako Hotel offers the most direct service to Kansai International Airport, in just 30 minutes, as well as providing convenient access to all other points in Osaka, the Kansai region and beyond.
Simon Cooper, Marriott International’s president and managing director for Asia Pacific, commented: “Marriott International’s model for growth around the world is to work with local partners who have the right local expertise, knowledge and skills, and who share our own values and culture.
“In Miyako Hotels & Resorts we have found an excellent partner to work with here in Japan and we are excited to open the first Marriott Hotels property in this very important city.”
Offering spectacular views of the city, the hotel’s 360 spacious rooms (each an average of 38 sq meters) are located on the 38th to 55th floors, and include six suites and 33 premium rooms.
The executive floor rooms are served by a dedicated executive lounge, the largest of its kind in Japan, with a ten meter high ceiling and floor to ceiling windows.
It provides an open, airy and relaxing space to unwind and enjoy the view while enjoying light refreshments and snacks.
The hotel’s meeting room facilities are high tech and Wi-Fi enabled throughout, ideal for handling all kinds of meetings.
There is one larger meeting room (230 sq. meters) and six small meeting rooms (32 sq. meters), which are perfect for intimate parties and family events.
As a part of Marriott Hotel’s transformation, the iconic brand has been innovating throughout its hotels globally.
Re-designed lobbies and public spaces known as Greatrooms are being rapidly deployed for the next generation of travellers who blend work and play, demand style and substance, and require technology.
