Marriott Hotels, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of over 30 extraordinary hotel brands, today announced the opening of Nagasaki Marriott Hotel, marking the flagship brand’s debut in Kyushu, Japan’s southernmost main island, and the ninth Marriott Hotel to open in the country. The new hotel brings the brand’s rich legacy to Nagasaki, a destination with a fascinating blend of Japanese, Chinese and Dutch culture as the only port city open to foreign trade in 16th Century Japan.

Directly connected with JR Nagasaki Station, the hotel provides guests with convenient access to Nishi Kyushu Shinkansen and local JR lines. For international travelers, the hotel can be reached by less than 2 hours’ drive from Fukuoka Airport. Nearby landmarks include the new Dejima Messe Nagasaki Convention Hall and the iconic UNESCO World Heritage-listed Glover Garden, as well as the Atomic Bomb Museum and Peace Park. Travelers looking to further explore the city’s landmarks can hop on a boat ride from Nagasaki Port to another UNESCO World Heritage site-Hashima Island, better known as Battleship Island, famous for its modern ruins that embody Japan’s past manufacturing revolution.

“We are delighted to expand our portfolio of flagship Marriott Hotels in Japan with the opening of the first Marriott hotel in Nagasaki,” said Karl Hudson, Area Vice President Japan and Guam, Marriott International. “As global travelers’ needs and expectations evolve, so does Marriott Hotels, which have always led the travel industry with innovations that embrace style, design and technology. True to the brand’s rich legacy of placing people first, Nagasaki Marriott Hotel is set to serve guests in this wonderful city that awaits exploration of its fascinating history and culture.”

The design narrative of Nagasaki Marriott Hotel by renowned architect Kume Sekkei is a beautiful representation of Nagasaki’s past. The hotel’s distinctive exterior design is inspired by a cruise ship, and its interiors pay homage to Nagasaki’s port and sea with patterned marble and natural colors throughout the spaces of its Greatroom lobby, restaurants, bars and other public areas. The ocean-inspired design, combined with the hotel’s choice of materials, furnishings and textures, work together to create a serene and welcoming atmosphere for guests.
