Hotel Okura Co., Ltd. signs a deal to operate Hotel Okura Suzhou, China, from 2027, expanding its luxury hospitality presence.

TOKYO, JAPAN – Hotel Okura Co., Ltd. announced that it has signed an agreement to operate and manage Hotel Okura Suzhou in Suzhou, China from 2027. The agreement with Suzhou Ronghe Real Estate Co., Ltd., which is owned by Suzhou Harmony Development Group Co., Ltd., Marimo Holdings, Inc. and Sumitomo Corporation, was signed on December 20.

Suzhou, located in southeastern Jiangsu Province, has developed as an economic center due to its geographical proximity to Shanghai. Blessed with a picturesque “old-town” center, Suzhou (the “Venice of the East”) is a tourist city with historic sites and canals running in all directions, surrounded by traditional Chinese scenery. More recently, it has also attracted attention as one of China’s leading industrial cities.

Hotel Okura Suzhou will be located in Suzhou Industrial Park, a high-tech park launched in 1994 as one of the area’s two major specially designated industrial zones and positioned as one of China’s top national-level economic zones. As a smart zone, it emphasizes sustainability and functions as a production and export base for global companies.

Hotel Okura Suzhou, the first Hotel Okura-brand hotel in Jiangsu Province, will provide exceptional guest services reflecting Japan’s long-established culture of hospitality.

The hotel will be located on the upper level of a complex accommodating offices, residences and commercial facilities. It will offer 249 rooms, including 25 suites, and standard rooms measuring 42m2. Four food and beverage venues will serve a variety of cuisines, including Japanese and Chinese. Hotel facilities will include an executive lounge, fitness center, indoor swimming pool, and more.

A main banquet hall will be available along with six rooms for meetings and VIP occasions, functioning as high-quality spaces supported with a range of services suited to diverse purposes.

Direct connection to the Xingtang Street Station of Suzhou Rail Transit (lines 1 and 5) will provide convenient access to the hotel.

Within the same building, guest rooms will be offered for long-term stays.

Another Hotel Okura brand also in Jiangsu Province, Okura Nikko Hotels, currently operates Hotel Nikko Wuxi (opened in 2010), Hotel Nikko Suzhou (2015), Hotel Nikko Taizhou (2016), and Hotel Nikko Changshu (2023).
