Accor will collaborate with Heiwa Real Estate Co. and Sapporo Real Estate Co. to open Mercure Tokyo Hibiya and Hotel Sousei Sapporo – MGallery respectively.
Mercure Tokyo Hibiya will be transformed from the current Uchisaiwaicho Heiwa Building in Tokyo, and is slated to debut in the winter of 2023.
The 178-key property will showcase traditional theatre design elements, paying homage to the history and culture of Hibiya. It will have a restaurant, fitness centre, executive lounge with a theatre and cigar room, meeting rooms and other facilities for both business and leisure travellers.
Centrally located, Mercure Tokyo Hibiya is a three-minute walk from JR Shimbashi Station and Uchisaiwaicho Station, and is close to local attractions such as Hibiya Park and Tokyo Midtown Hibiya complex, which houses offices, restaurants, shops and Toho Cinemas Hibiya.
Hotel Sousei Sapporo – MGallery will be the first MGallery Hotel in Sapporo, Japan and is scheduled to open in 2024.
Located on the historic site of what is said to be the first authentic beer brewery founded by the Japanese, the property will feature 118 guestrooms and suites, a restaurant, lounge and fitness centre.
The hotel is named after the nearby Sousei River which features the Sousei Bridge, the oldest bridge in Sapporo. With the ongoing redevelopment of the Sousei East area and the upcoming Hokkaido Shinkansen in 2030, the new MGallery hotel will be a key addition to the project.
Adjacent to the hotel is the Sapporo Factory, Nagayama Memorial Park, Sapporo TV Tower and the popular Sapporo Beer Museum.
