W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott International, has announced the development of W Osaka in Japan.
Set across 27 floors, the new hotel is expected to open in 2021 and will boast 337 guestrooms and suites, restaurants and cocktail bars.
Under an hour away from Kansai International Airport, W Osaka will be based within the indie boutiques and restaurants of the city.
“In 2020, Japan will capture the global spotlight, welcoming nations from around the world to the country on a grand scale for the 2020 games. This is a great build up to the launch of the first-ever W in Japan,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader for W Hotels Worldwide.
“W is always bringing its new/next vision and bold approach to new destinations, especially cities as vibrant and energetic as Osaka. We are confident W Osaka will add even more energy and excitement to this already action-packed year in Japan.”
Inside, guests will also be able to maintain their health and fitness with the Away Spa and fitness centre.
Isami Wada, chairman of Sekisui House, added: “We are excited to add yet another Marriott International property to our portfolio and even more thrilled to be introducing a brand as daring as W to the country.
“It will be an exciting year for Japan, and the W brand will surely offer limitless experiences to those visiting from all corners of the world.”
The new opening joins more than 50 W Hotels currently open globally, including the W Shanghai – The Bund, W Suzhou, W Bellevue and W Goa, as well as the soon-to-open W Panama, W Amman and W Brisbane.
