Red Planet Hotels announced that it is now accepting reservations at Red Planet Hiroshima. The 160-room hotel is expected to open in August and will mark the first Red Planet hotel in Hiroshima and the sixth in Japan. Nestled in the heart of the vibrant Nagarekawa neighbourhood and within easy access to three tram stations, the newly-built hotel provides visitors with a strategic location appealing to both business and leisure travellers.
The hotel’s guests will be close to the central business district and historic landmarks, such as the Peace Memorial Park and its renovated museum, just a 10-minute walk away.
“Hiroshima is a symbolic city imbued with history, culinary experiences, and rich cultural traditions. We are thrilled to accelerate our growth strategy by welcoming the first Red Planet hotel to Hiroshima,” said Tim Hansing, Red Planet Japan’s CEO.
“With our prime location and tech-enabled rooms featuring smart TVs with streaming capabilities, free high speed wi-fi, and online check-in, we look forward to connecting our global visitors, loyalty programme members, and the local community to the heart of the city.”
Executive Director to Representative Director Yoshihisa Ikurumi added that “the opening of this elegant new hotel is timely as it coincides with the rebound of the Japanese travel industry.”
Red Planet Hiroshima will join Red Planet’s growing portfolio in Japan, alongside Red Planet Tokyo Asakusa, Red Planet Nagoya Nishiki, Red Planet Okinawa Naha, Red Planet Sapporo Susukino South, and the newly opened Red Planet Sapporo Susukino Central. Under development is also the 191-room Red Planet Kyoto Nijo, slated to open in 2021.
