Marriott and Schrager to open two Tokyo hotels

Marriott International and Ian Schrager have signed two separate agreements with Mori Trust Co. for two new hotels in Tokyo.

Mori Trust is already the largest owner and franchisee of Marriott International hotels in Japan.

The new agreements will see the opening of The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza and The Tokyo EDITION, Toranomon, in 2020 when the city will host the Olympic Games.

These will mark the Japanese debut for the luxury lifestyle EDITION brand, which was conceived by Ian Schrager in partnership with Marriott International.

"Tokyo serves as the perfect setting for the EDITION brand, presenting the best of the world's cultural and social milieu for travellers who seek exceptional places and experiences," said Anthony Capuano, executive vice president and global chief development office, Marriott International.

The Tokyo EDITION, Ginza will be a newly built 13-storey standalone property with 80 guestrooms, just off Chuo Street, the main shopping street in Ginza.

Meanwhile, the 200-key Tokyo EDITION Toranomon will be built as part of a redevelopment of the former Pastoral Building, a mixed-use project of offices, residences and a medical centre.
