"Nagoya attracts travellers from Japan and abroad and remains an important market for Hilton since the opening of the Hilton Nagoya in 1989. The signing of Conrad Nagoya marks a continued expansion of our luxury footprint in Japan's most sought-after destinations, following the opening of ROKU KYOTO, LXR Hotels & Resorts, in Kyoto and the signings of Waldorf Astoria in Tokyo and Osaka," said Clarence Tan, Senior Vice President, Development, Asia Pacific.

Located alongside four main streets of the city centre, the hotel will span 13 stories of a new 41-story mixed-use building complex also housing commercial facilities, a multiplex cinema, and offices. Travellers will enjoy easy access to the Chubu Centrair International Airport, approximately 50 kilometres away, and important business districts with the structure directly connected to Sakae Subway Station. For tourists looking to explore the city, the Conrad Nagoya is situated near attractions, such as Nagoya Castle, Tokugawa Art Museum, Atsuta Shrine, Nagoya Noh Theater, Chubu Electric Power MIRAI TOWER, and Osu shopping district.

"We are confident that the opening of Nagoya's first international luxury hotel will contribute to the further revitalisation of the Sakae area and, by extension, the international competitiveness of the city of Nagoya as it prepares to open the new maglev line. We will try to promote this project so that Conrad Nagoya will be a space where all visitors can enjoy an incredible experience."

Drawing inspiration rich cultural heritage of the region, Conrad Nagoya will showcase locally-inspired design to provide guests with a fully-immersive experience of the destination.
