Marriott to open Tadao Ando-designed W hotel in Osaka in 2021

Marriott International has secured a deal to open and manage a 337-room luxury hotel in Japan’s second-largest city, Osaka.

Designed by architect Tadao Ando, the 27-floor property will be operated by Marriott’s subsidiary W Hotels Worldwide.

Scheduled to open in 2021, the property is owned by real estate giant and house builder Sekisui House and will be the first-ever W-branded hotel in Japan. Facilities will include a large Away Spa and a health club, Fit.

According to Anthony Ingham, W Hotels’ global brand leader, the opening of W Osaka will look to benefit from a predicted increase in interest in Japan as a tourism destination following the 2020 Olympic Games.

“In 2020, Japan will capture the global spotlight, welcoming nations from around the world to the country on a grand scale for the 2020 Games,” Ingham said.

“This is a great build-up to the launch of the first W in Japan.”

W Osaka will join the 50-strong portfolio of W Hotels around the world.

Last year, Marriott launched four new W hotels – W Shanghai The Bund, W Suzhou, W Bellevue and W Goa – and is preparing three other launches: W Panama, W Amman and W Brisbane.

Marriott plans to have 75 W Hotels in operation by the end of 2020.
