Inspired by New York’s art and fashion scene, the Kimpton Shinjuku Tokyo is located close to the iconic Shibuya Crossing and Shinjuku Station.
IHG’s partner, Tsukada Global Holdings Inc, is one of the leading hospitality companies in Japan, with a focus on actively developing its hotel, restaurant, bridal, wellness and relaxation businesses.
They are a long-time IHG development partner, and own four hotels including InterContinental Tokyo Bay and The Strings by InterContinental Tokyo.
Kimpton Shinjuku Tokyo will offer 151 guest rooms, two F&B outlets, three meeting and event spaces, a health and fitness centre, and a chapel on level 16 doubling as an immersive art gallery for exclusive exhibits.
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired by IHG in 2015 and has since seen exciting growth beyond the US into Greater China and Europe. The brand is set to continue its momentum with over 30 new hotels in destinations including Bali and Paris in April 2021, and Hong Kong and in Malaysia in 2023.
THPT Comment: Kimpton doing well, under it’s ownership by IHG….known for their boutique hotels, interesting that Bangkok is 362 rooms and apartments, in a very tall tower block!
