Hilton to open property in Kyoto – Business Traveller

Hilton has announced plans to open its first flagship-branded hotel in Kyoto in 2024.

The hotel group has signed an agreement with Tokyo Tatemono Co. Ltd to open Hilton Kyoto in the city’s downtown Sanjo-Kawaramachi area.

The 313-room hotel will include four dining outlets and facilities such as a fitness centre, spa, indoor pool, an executive lounge, and banquet and meeting rooms. The interior design will draw inspiration from Kyoto textiles and the ‘Orimono’ tradition of weaving.

It will also be within walking distance of major attractions such as the Kyoto Imperial Palace, Heian Shrine, Yasaka Shrine and Gion area, and a few minutes’ walk from Kyoto City Hall Station and Sanjo Station.

Clarence Tan, senior vice president, development, Asia Pacific, commented:

“We are delighted to partner with Tokyo Tatemono Co., Ltd. to bring Hilton’s flagship brand to Kyoto. This is the third hotel development inked by Hilton in Kyoto, following the opening of Roku Kyoto, LXR Hotels and Resorts last year, and Hilton Garden Inn Kyoto Shijo Karasuma which is scheduled to open later this year.

“With its strategic location and signature Hilton hospitality, Hilton Kyoto will be ideally suited to serve business and leisure demand in the market, and we look forward to meeting the diverse needs of guests through our portfolio of brands in the city.”
