Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the signing of a management agreement with Daiwa House Industry Co., Ltd. for DoubleTree by Hilton Osaka Castle.
Scheduled to open in the spring of 2024, the 377-room new-build hotel will mark the debut of the DoubleTree by Hilton brand and the third Hilton-managed hotel in Osaka, joining Hilton Osaka and Conrad Osaka in the city.
DoubleTree by Hilton Osaka Castle is approximately 50 kilometers from Kansai International Airport and conveniently located within a 10-minute drive from Osaka Station, offering excellent access to nearby cities including Kyoto, Nara and Kobe.
The hotel will be situated to the northwest of the almost 450-year-old Osaka Castle, one of the most visually spectacular creations in Japan, and within walking distance of the castle. Famed General Toyotomi Hideyoshi began construction of Osaka Castle in 1583, which was to be the center of a unified Japan under the rule of the Toyotomi clan. Presently amid the historical Osaka Castle Park, with an abundance of cherry, apricot and plum trees, the area's diverse flora promises beautiful landscapes in both spring and fall. Leisure guests will enjoy the short five-minute walk to Temmabashi Station where they can get quick access to Umeda and Namba for retail and various local dining options in the city. The hotel will also provide business travelers with convenient access to Osaka's commercial and prime business zones.
Occupying 15 levels of a newly-constructed building complex when it opens, DoubleTree by Hilton Osaka Castle will offer 377 modern and well-appointed rooms and guest facilities including an indoor pool, a fitness center, meeting facilities and an executive lounge. Guests will have a selection of dining options from the hotel's all-day dining Grab & Go where they can grab a midday snack and a lobby lounge and bar.
