    Marriott International and Prince Hotels, Inc, of Japan announced that The Prince Sakura Tower Tokyo will become Japan’s first Autograph Collection hotel – a portfolio of independent hotels, with the re-opening of the newly renovated hotel on September 14, 2013. Exactly like nothing else, the Autograph Collection is an upscale portfolio of hand-selected independent hotels each offering its own unique travel experience. Experiences fall within diverse categories including Urban Excitement, Indulgent Escape, Culinary Delight, Artistic Getaway, Historic Exploration and more. Each hotel is thoughtfully chosen based on quality, character and individuality.

    Originally opened in 1998, the 288-room Prince Sakura Tower Tokyo has gone through an extensive refurbishment and renovation under the direction of interior designer Ryu Kosaka of Aoyama Nomura Design, whose work is highly acclaimed both in Japan and overseas. All of the hotel’s rooms, lobby area, restaurants, and other areas were designed to convey a modern sense of harmony, blending the spaces with the seasonal landscapes of hotel’s Japanese garden.

    The hotel has at its heart the concept of ‘Japanese style hospitality at the center of the city’ and is centrally located just a 3-minute walk from Tokyo’s Shinagawa station. The Prince Sakura Tower Tokyo also boasts a spacious Japanese garden of approximately 2 hectares (5 acres) where guests can enjoy the ever-changing natural beauty of the garden from season to season – and especially during the cherry blossom season as the hotel’s grounds are blessed with more than 200 cherry blossom trees which showcase the amazing sakura blossoms – reflected in the hotel’s name.

    The Prince Sakura Tower Autograph Collection with its newly enhanced facilities is expected to host an increased number of international travelers, and this will further be supported by in the future with government tourism promotion, the economic growth of countries in the region, and the implementation of a robust MICE strategy by Prince Hotels.
