Fairfield by Marriott to Debut in Japan

Marriott International announced the signing of 12 Fairfield by Marriott hotels across five prefectures in Japan – Kyoto, Wakayama, Mie, Gifu and Tochigi – in a long-standing collaboration with Japanese real estate developer, Sekisui House; in total, an anticipated 15 hotels will be signed by 2019.

All properties are expected to open by 2021, with the first dozen hotels scheduled to open in late 2020. With more visitors exploring Japan’s lesser known destinations, these upcoming Fairfield by Marriott Hotels will give travellers access to remote destinations whilst ensuring that guests can count on the international brand’s standards of warm hospitality and inviting spaces with each and every stay.

“Japan has been experiencing robust growth in inbound tourist arrivals in recent years,” said Craig Smith, president, Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “This year alone, Japan has welcomed more than 20 million international travellers and is on track to reaching its goal of 30 million visitors by 2020. We see that, while there is increasing demand to explore destinations outside of the popular gateway cities, there is currently a limited amount of accommodations in these more remote areas. Together with Sekisui House, we believe in the potential of capturing this growing trend with the simplicity and reliability of Fairfield by Marriott hotels to showcase our commitment to providing warm hospitality in emerging destinations across Japan.”
