Tokyo, Japan—Marriott International has announced the opening of the Courtyard by Marriott Tokyo Station. Located in the Kyobashi commercial district, the 150-room hotel is just four minutes on foot from the bullet-train-serviced Yaesu side of Tokyo Station. It occupies the first four floors of the newly built Kyobashi Trust Tower, a 21-story building conveniently situated on the Chuo-dori thoroughfare between Ginza and Nihonbashi, both renowned for their flagship boutiques and centuries-old shops. The Tokyo Metro Ginza Line is one minute from the front door.
“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,” commented Simon Cooper, Marriott International’s president and managing director for Asia Pacific. “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, while 24-hour gym access and complimentary WiFi throughout the premises enable all guests to make the most of their time in this dynamic capital, whether working or relaxing.
Food and beverage options on property include GG Co., a first-floor café and bakery with terrace seating. The adjacent Lavarock restaurant, named for its lava-rock grill, serves contemporary bistro fare and grilled specialties from breakfast through bar time and offers semi-private seating. For registered guests, a library bar on the fourth floor provides casual space for impromptu meetings, while private gatherings and conferences of up to 130 people may be accommodated in four separate and fully equipped meeting venues on site.
Courtyard by Marriott Tokyo Station is the 15th Marriott International property to open in Japan, and the latest addition to the Courtyard portfolio of more than 950 hotels in 38 countries and territories.
