ANA InterContinental Tokyo Completed

 
.
Tokyo, 2 April 2007 – ANA InterContinental Tokyo, IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan’s first co-branded ANA InterContinental property, opened yesterday amid springtime cheers and festive revelry. Guests and hotel employees, along with their family and friends, gathered for a ceremonial unveil of the new hotel signage, as well as a celebratory champagne toast in the hotel’s main lobby. 

IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan was formed on 1 December 2006 as the hotel operating joint venture of IHG, the world’s largest hotel group by number of rooms, and ANA, Japan’s leading airline. As announced recently, ANA InterContinental Tokyo is the first of 13 hotels across Japan which the company will co-brand and enhance by 2009. Other hotels in the company’s network are also expected to co-brand.

Chris Moloney, chief executive officer, IHG ANA Hotels Group Japan, said: “This hotel is a great representation of the ANA InterContinental co-brand. It’s the result of teamwork and cooperation, and the combination of unique strengths that both companies bring to the partnership. As the pace of co-branding continues, our hotels will gain more of an international flavour while still maintaining the essence of Japanese hospitality that has made ANA the number one hotel brand in Japan.”
