Yotel Announces New Flagship Hotel In Tokyo, Japan
LONDON, July 25, 2022 /PRNewswireAsiaNet/ --

The innovative hotel brand continues rapid global expansion with the fifth 
hotel signing in Asia and ambitious development plans for Japan

YOTEL [] today announced its first hotel in Japan. 
Slated to open in 2024 under a long-term management agreement, YOTEL Tokyo will 
be located in Ginza, one of Tokyo's most desirable and dynamic neighbourhoods.

Featuring 244 rooms, the hotel will showcase the brand's latest features 
including the brand's signature robotic concierge YOBOT, motorised SmartBeds™, 
and fully integrated technologies enabling a complete touchless guest 
experience from reservation up to check-out.

"Japan's focus on technology and innovation has been an important source of 
inspiration for YOTEL ever since our inception. We are immensely proud and 
excited to announce our first hotel in Tokyo. A flagship for our group, YOTEL 
Tokyo will also be a stepping stone to roll out our brand across Japan, a 
market of strategic importance for YOTEL", commented Hubert Viriot, CEO of 

YOTEL Tokyo is steps away from Ginza, the city's most popular dining and 
shopping destination, featuring flagship stores for many of the world's 
best-known brands. The hotel is also only a fifteen-minute walk from Tokyo 
station, home to the city's main Shinkansen high-speed rail terminal providing 
access to most parts of Japan as well as the Narita Express, the city's main 
gateway to Narita International Airport.

YOTEL Tokyo is part of YOTEL's wider expansion strategy to expand across key 
cities in Japan including Sapporo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe. The 
group is also working on opportunities to roll out YOTELAir – the group's 
unique transit hotel concept - at key gateway airports and train stations.

YOTEL Tokyo will also include the brand's signature versatile and high energy 
public areas, where guests can eat, drink, work and play as well as a 24/7 
fitness centre, a Grab-and-Go cafe where guests can take away locally sourced 
food and drink options, meeting space and an outdoor terrace to meet, connect 
and relax.


YOTEL challenges the status quo by appealing to those who find traditional 
hotels uninspiring, looking for a different experience not just a great sleep. 
It delivers an authentic experience through awesome people, smart design and 
the creative use of technology. Inspired by the luxury of first-class travel 
and uncompromisingly designed around guests, YOTEL offers extraordinary value 
and a sense of community in sought-after locations. 

The global hospitality brand is based in London with regional offices in the US 
and Asia, and has a portfolio of three brands: YOTEL, YOTELPAD and YOTELAIR. 
The company operates fourteen city centre hotels in New York, Boston, San 
Francisco, Washington D.C., Miami, Singapore, Edinburgh, London (2), Amsterdam, 
Porto, Glasgow, Manchester and Park City, and six airport hotels in London 
Gatwick, Amsterdam Schiphol, Paris, Charles de Gaulle, Istanbul Airport (2), 
and Singapore Changi.

Group, the Talal Jassim Al-Bahar Group, United Investment Portugal and Kuwait 
Real Estate Company (AQARAT).

YOTEL was originally created by YO! founder Simon Woodroffe OBE who took 
inspiration from the experience of first-class travel and translated that 
ethos, language and design into small but beautifully designed rooms.
