Born in Osaka on Frontline of Inbound Tourism Where Growth Rate of Foreign Visitors Is Biggest in Japan.

TOKYO - Hotel Wing International Select Osaka Umeda, operated by Forbes Co., Ltd., will celebrate its grand opening on Friday, June 15, 2018.

This hotel is located in Umeda, one of Osaka's two biggest commercial and business districts, which is hugely popular among foreign tourists in Japan and has great access to Kansai International Airport.

"To enjoy yourself now is to change your tomorrow: Come to the hotel where you can stay in your own way," is the concept of the place, which operates a hotel and a cafe and bar as one to help you spend time there as your fancy takes you until drifting off to sleep. The motto is imbued with the hope that you enjoy yourself at the hotel to your heart's content and motivate yourself for tomorrow.

Art Deco style design reflecting a sophisticated worldviewThe exterior as well as the "Sub-front" lobby and Cafe & Bar GATSBY on the first floor is decorated in tones of black, gold and silver that provide a splendid atmosphere, and is furnished with refined details unexpected of a business hotel. The guest room floors are designed with Art Deco style geometric patterns, which are named after six characters portrayed in American author F. Scott Fitzgerald's most representative novel, and are rendered in brilliant colors, each imagined to represent one of the characters.
