Marriott International leads its brand offerings in Japan with its 70th property, Aloft Osaka Dojima.
Marriott International celebrates today as the leading hotel brand opens its 70th property in Japan, Aloft Osaka Dojima. The company now has 70 hotels across 18 brands in 21 prefectures including major cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto, as well as Tochigi, Gifu, and Wakayama. 30 additional hotels are to open in the near future, three of which are expected to open later this year, indicating a trend of continuous growth in the country.
“Expanding our presence and bringing more brands and experiences to Japan has been a priority for us,” said Rajeev Menon, President, Marriott International Asia-Pacific. “We remain confident in the future of travel and look forward to welcoming both domestic and international guests with new and exciting travel choices when they are able to travel again.”
The opening of Aloft Osaka Dojima heralds the continued growth of the select-service hotel category in the country, with the number of such hotels nearly tripling since 2019. Marriott brands in the select-service category such as Fairfield, Courtyard, Aloft, and Moxy offer streamlined services and amenities all at an affordable price.
Located in Osaka’s Kita district, Aloft Osaka Dojima is situated near attractions such as the National Museum of Art, Osaka, and the Umeda Sky Building. The Aloft property itself touts a range of room options, including loft queen, loft twin, deluxe loft queen, and loft suite, making use of a design language that combines industrial elements with abstract installations and geometric designs.
This summer, Moxy Hotel, one of Marriott’s brands, will be opening its fourth Japan location, Moxy Kyoto Nijo. The latest addition to the Moxy portfolio will add a playful twist to Kyoto’s social scene, celebrating nonconformity, originality, and open-mindedness. The Hiyori Chapter Kyoto, which opened just last week, is the Tribute Portfolio brand’s second property in the country. The new Tribute property pays homage to traditional Japanese design elements such as the use of wood, sliding doors, and rectangular grids, all while adding a contemporary spin.
