The 363-room locally inspired hotel will become the first international airport hotel close to Haneda Airport.

Tokyo, Japan - Accor, a world leading hospitality group, has signed a management agreement with Samty K.K., bringing to life the first international airport hotel within close proximity to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport with the opening of Mercure Haneda. The newly built hotel is slated for completion in 2023.

Tokyo Mercure Haneda will be strategically located within 10-minute drive from Haneda Airport and within a few hundred metres away from Otorii Railway Station. The hotel is a short stroll to Anamori-inari Shrine, Haneda Innovation City, and local eateries.

“Accor has remained committed to expanding its footprint in Japan and has built up a network of 18 hotels in eight destinations. Mercure Haneda will be an exciting addition to its portfolio. Visitors are attracted to Japan as it has long been Asia’s important hub of business, innovation, and culture. The tourism industry is becoming one of the major economic engines for the country and we anticipate increasing arrivals in the coming years. We are delighted to further foster the relationship with Samty K.K. to bring our locally inspired Mercure experience and international hospitality standards to this premium location close to Haneda Airport, the gateway to Japan,” said Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer, Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea.

Mercure Haneda will feature 363 keys and a variety of offerings, including a restaurant, a bar, a fitness center, three meeting rooms, and lounges for guests and crews, which will appeal to both business and leisure travellers. The hotel will awaken the thrill of discovery with its array of locally inspired experiences. The overall design will take visitors through the evolving periods of Tokyo from the past to the future with the concept of Tokyo Electric. The design elements will highlight the delicacy of tradition and handicraft, the history of the Haneda neighbourhood, and Japanese sub-cultures.
