IHG Hotels & Resorts has signed a management agreement with Pan Pacific International Holdings Corporation to open Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya in late 2023.
It will be the fourth Hotel Indigo-branded hotel in Japan, following Hotel Indigo Hakone Gora, Hotel Indigo Karuizawa and Hotel Indigo Inuyama Urakuen Garden.
Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya will be located at the top of the mixed-use complex Dogenzaka Dori that is being developed as part of the Shibuya Ward Dogenzaka 2-chome Development Plan.
The 272-room hotel is located just a five-minute walk away to the Shibuya Scramble Crossing, and nearby the residential Shoto area. Onsite facilities include a neighbourhood café & bar, gym, and coffee shop.
Abhijay Sandilya, managing director – Japan, IHG Hotels & Resorts, said: “Shibuya is one of Japan’s world-class culture hubs that is perfectly suited to the neighbourhood stories embodied by Hotel Indigo, so we could not wish for a better location for this great brand to make its Tokyo’s debut.”
Pan Pacific International Holdings Corporation, president and CEO, representative director, Naoki Yoshida said: “Dogenzaka Dori will create a new destination for people to come to the Shibuya area, a lifestyle hub that attracts a diverse range of people and revitalises the area as a new centre of culture.
“Together with Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya, which reflects the evolving character and charm of the Shibuya area, we hope that Dogenzaka Dori will shine a light on the still undiscovered charms of Shibuya and provide a wonderful experience for many domestic and international guests.”
Once Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya opens, IHG will have five hotels in Tokyo and eight in Greater Tokyo area – with 254 open or pipeline hotels worldwide.
