Hilton Hiroshima, the global hospitality company’s first flagship-branded property in the Japanese city, is now open.
Conveniently situated in the center of the city, the 420-room hotel is a 10-minute drive from Hiroshima Station and is within walking distance of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Atomic Bomb Dome,” and Peace Memorial Park — which attract more than 1.7 million visitors per year. It also offers easy access to major dining, shopping and sightseeing spots such as the Hiroshima Castle and Itsukushima Shrine with its famous floating torii gate.
“We are delighted to announce the opening of Hilton Hiroshima as the latest addition to Hilton’s flagship brand, in the center of the Chugoku and Shikoku region,” said Timothy Soper, area vice-president, head of Japan, Korea and Micronesia, Hilton. “With Hilton’s extensive experience in Japan, we are incredibly honored to partner with Setouchi Brand Corporation to set a benchmark for hospitality in the region. Being at the heart of both commerce and tourism, Hilton Hiroshima has been designed to meet the needs of both leisure and business travelers alike, as well as visitors attending international conferences and exhibitions. With Japan set to host the G7 summit in Hiroshima next year, we look forward to welcoming both international and domestic guests with Hilton’s signature hospitality.”
Hilton Hiroshima features one of the largest convention facilities in the Chugoku and Shikoku region. Offering 19 banquet and meeting rooms with the latest LED technology and state-of-the-art AV equipment, it can accommodate international MICE events of more than 1,000 people.
Additional hotel facilities include four restaurants, an executive lounge, a wedding chapel, a fitness center, an indoor pool, and a sauna. Hiroshima Hotel is also home to the region’s first Spa by L’OCCITANE.
Hilton is managing the hotel under an agreement with Fujimi-cho Development G.K., a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) set up by Setouchi Brand Corporation.
