InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8 is a new-build luxury hotel within the Yokohama Hammer Head Project, set to open in November. The development includes a cruise ship terminal for large vessels. The property is the brand’s second in the city, following the iconic InterContinental Yokohama Grand.
“We are very pleased to open a hotel that will be a new symbol in the same place as our first InterContinental in Japan. InterContinental Hotels & Resorts announced the opening of the 200th hotel in 2018 and continues to deliver luxury travel to emerging destinations all over the world. The brand continues to expand in Japan, following ANA InterContinental Beppu Resort & Spa, which is scheduled to open in August this year, and will continue to touch the heart of the world’s largest luxury brand, InterContinental,” commented Hans Heijligers, CEO, IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan.
The property includes more than 170 guestrooms, multiple dining options, event spaces, a spa, fitness center, public rooftop and indoor garden.
“We are very pleased to be able to open the second InterContinental hotel in Yokohama City, InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8. The new hotel will form part of three facilities: a passenger cruise terminal, commercial precinct and the luxury hotel. Located on the third to fifth floors of the complex, there is no better way to see the dynamic view which spans the rare marine location in Japan, surrounded by the sea in three directions. We will strive to deliver the hospitality we have cultivated here for 28 years, enhancing the experience for many customers coming from within Japan or abroad,” said Azuma Umemura, president and representative director, Yokohama Grand InterContiental Co., Ltd.
