Hilton has announced its partnership with the Japanese company Godo Gaisha Kyoto Shijo Hotel Management. The internationally famous hotelier will bring its Hilton Garden Inn brand to Japan and open a hotel in Kyoto. The new 250-key hotel will offer accommodation that is both upscale and affordable and will be suitable for different categories of guests.
Scheduled to open at the end of 2022, the Hilton Garden Inn Kyoto Shijo Karasuma will offer not only comfortable rooms but also a restaurant and a bar, The Shop (the self-service shop open 24/7), and a fitness center. The Kyoto hotel will be perfectly suitable for leisure tourists due to its location in the city center. Many iconic landmarks of the ancient city such as Gion are within walking distance of the hotel. It will be also easy to access Nijo Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site, see traditional machiya houses, and enjoy other popular tourist attractions. The main shopping areas in Kyoto are nearby as well. Business travelers, in their turn, will enjoy proximity to the business district.
Kyoto is the cultural heart of Japan and one of its most prominent destinations. Every year, it attracts many domestic and international guests who come to admire the unique historical atmosphere of this place. Hilton decided to make Kyoto the first city for the debut of its focused service hotel brand in Japan. However, this is not the only upcoming hotel by the US hotel company in this city. Earlier this year, Hilton announced the opening of one more hotel in Kyoto, ROKU Kyoto, which is set to open in autumn 2021.
Hilton Garden Inn is a well-established hotel brand with a big international base of loyal clients. The key to the success of Garden Inn hotels is in offering affordable rates for hotel rooms with high-quality amenities and personalized service. Hilton hopes that guests will like the new hotel when it opens in Kyoto, and the property will quickly gain recognition and dedication.
Just like other Hilton hotels all over the world, Hilton Garden Inn Kyoto Shijo Karasuma will be a member of the Hilton Honors reward program that works across 18 brands of the popular hotelier. The reward program offers various benefits like exclusive discounts, free Wi-Fi, and other upgrades available for Points.
