Courtyard by Marriott Nagoya to open in Japan’s bustling port city and business hub in early 2022

Tokyo, Japan – Marriott International today announced the signing of Courtyard by Marriott Nagoya, the sixth property of the brand in Japan. The hotel will be leased by The Yomiuri Shimbun and Sekisui House, Ltd., a long-standing partner of Marriott International, will look after project management, design and construction. The property will be located in Japan’s hub of manufacturing industries, attracting global business travel to its destination.

“The addition of the Courtyard by Marriott Nagoya to the existing portfolio highlights the strategic growth of the brand in Japan,” said Paul Foskey, Chief Development Officer, Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “Japan has seen extraordinary growth in inbound travelers, exceeding more than 30 million travelers in 2018. Nagoya is a great hub for business travelers and offers plenty of culture and entertainment for leisure travelers.”

For the past 36 years, Courtyard by Marriott has been dedicated to providing the best hotel experience to support its guests in pursuing their personal and professional passions. True to the brand, Courtyard by Marriott Nagoya will be a 12-floor standalone hotel, featuring 360 contemporary rooms including 10 suites, that combine stylish comfort with smart functionality, creating a modern environment suitable for working or relaxing. Guests will be able to dine in Nagoya Kitchen, a semi-open kitchen with a theatrical display of buffet and live cooking stations. To cater for the high-demand business segment, a ballroom, divisible by two, four meeting rooms, as well as a Fitness Centre will be available for use.

“We are excited to open another hotel in Nagoya with our long-standing partner Marriott International,” says Yoshihiro Nakai, President & Representative Director, Sekisui House, Ltd.  “The hotel will offer purposeful and relaxing stays for business and leisure travelers alike, ready to explore the diverse attractions of Nagoya City and its surroundings.”

Added Toshikazu Yamaguchi, President of The Yomiuri Shimbun, “We have been distributing our newspaper based in Nagoya by much support of our readers and the locals since our debut in the Chubu region in 1975. As this hotel will be opened in our former Chubu branch, we hope the hotel will become the place where people from all over the world will gather for both business and leisure purposes and ultimately we can give back to this region.”

Courtyard by Marriott Nagoya is located in the largest city of the Chubu region in Japan, where many Japanese manufacturing companies’ headquarters can be found including Toyota Motor Corporations in Toyota City, which makes the city an important destination for corporate events and conferences.

The hotel is a 45-minute drive from Chubu International airport, a 100-minute journey by bullet train from Tokyo and 50 minutes from Osaka. Located in 10-minute walk distance to the nearest Fushimi Station and 18 minutes’ walk to Nagoya Station, guests will be able to reach Sakae for shopping, dining and entertainment options within a 15-minute walk, and other attractions including Higashiyama Zoo and Legoland are also only a short distance away.
