A new Hotel JAL City is to open at Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport in September.
The new hotel, Hotel JAL City Haneda Tokyo West Wing, is the brand’s second hotel near Haneda.
The eight-floor, 103-room facility will be located just 70 meters away from the existing Hotel JAL City Haneda Tokyo. Free shuttle buses will connect the hotels with the airport.
Guests will be offered four room types, including business-purposed rooms with generous workspaces and spacious twin bedrooms for international passengers with larger luggage.
The hotel’s interior features a distinctively Japanese ambiance created by the global design and architectural firm Gensler. The San Francisco-based company boasts a portfolio that includes The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, Le Méridien Chicago, Grand Hyatt Incheon, Indigo Hotel in Saudi Arabia and many other notable properties.
International passengers are increasingly flying in and out of Haneda International Airport, Japan’s most-used airport and one of the busiest airports in the world. A key reason for its growing popularity is its extra-convenient location.
According to the Japan National Tourism Organization, international passengers to Japan rapidly increased to nearly 21.4 million, an all-time high, in the fiscal year that ended in March. Looking ahead, the Japanese government hopes to welcome 40 million overseas visitors in the year 2020.
There are now twelve Hotel JAL City hotels in Japan.
Hotel JAL City is part of Okura Nikko hotels.
