Hilton today announced the signing of a management agreement with Tokyo Tatemono Co., Ltd. to launch Hilton Kyoto in 2024. The property will be Hilton’s first flagship-branded hotel in Japan’s cultural capital, a popular destination for both international and domestic travelers.
Hilton Kyoto will open in Sanjo-Kawaramachi, the heart of downtown Kyoto, near the central business and shopping districts, surrounded by classical Buddhist temples, Zen gardens, Shinto shrines, and museums. Hilton Kyoto will be within walking distance to major attractions including the Kyoto Imperial Palace, Heian Shrine, Yasaka Shrine and Gion area. Guests will also be able to delight in authentic Japanese delicacies nearby at the Nishiki Market (“Kyoto’s Kitchen”), or Pontocho, one of Kyoto’s most atmospheric dining areas. As guests explore the city, they will be able to enjoy convenient access to transportation hubs, with the hotel being just a few minutes’ walk from Kyoto City Hall Station and Sanjo Station, or approximately 15 minutes from Kyoto Station by car.
The 313-room hotel will feature four dining outlets including an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty restaurant, a bar and a café. Guests can also enjoy a range of facilities such as a fitness center, spa, indoor pool, an executive lounge, and banquet and meeting rooms. Hilton Kyoto will bring together the unique qualities of Kyoto – old and new, culture and history, people and their stories – serving as a conduit to connect guests and the community. The hotel’s interior design will be inspired by the concept of Kyoto textiles which incorporates elements of the ‘Orimono’ unique tradition of weaving, creating a seamless blend of authentic heritage and modern comforts.
