Yotel Signs New Flagship Hotel in Tokyo, Japan

Japan, Tokyo. September 02, 2022

YOTEL announced its first hotel in Japan. Slated to open in 2024 under a long-term management agreement, YOTEL Tokyo will be located in Ginza, one of Tokyo's most desirable and dynamic neighborhoods.

Featuring 244 rooms, the hotel will showcase the brand's latest features, including the brand's signature robotic concierge YOBOT, motorized SmartBeds™, and fully integrated technologies enabling a complete touchless guest experience from reservation up to check-out.

"Japan's focus on technology and innovation has been an important source of inspiration for YOTEL ever since our inception. We are immensely proud and excited to announce our first hotel in Tokyo. A flagship for our group, YOTEL Tokyo will also be a steppingstone to roll out our brand across Japan, a market of strategic importance for YOTEL", commented Hubert Viriot, CEO of YOTEL.

YOTEL Tokyo is steps away from Ginza, the city's most popular dining and shopping destination, featuring flagship stores for many of the world's best-known brands. The hotel is also only a fifteen-minute walk from Tokyo station, home to the city's main Shinkansen high-speed rail terminal providing access to most parts of Japan as well as the Narita express, the city's main gateway to Narita International Airport.

YOTEL Tokyo is part of YOTEL's wider expansion strategy to expand across key cities in Japan, including Sapporo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, and Kobe. The group is also working on opportunities to roll out YOTELAir - the group's unique transit hotel concept - at key gateway airports and train stations.

YOTEL Tokyo will also include the brand's signature versatile and high-energy public areas, where guests can eat, drink, work and play as well as a 24/7 fitness center, a Grab-and-Go cafe where guests can take away locally sourced food and drink options, meeting space and an outdoor terrace to meet, connect and relax.

Hotel Revenue Management: Every Square Foot Matters

Traditionally, hotels have employed a room-centric revenue model. The primary focus was on pricing strategies that could generate the most revenue from the sale of rooms. However, the pandemic has forced hoteliers to look beyond room revenue exclusively, and to maximize all available revenue streams. How is this accomplished? By re-imagining the use and function of every square foot of a hotel property, and how revenue is generated from it. For example, some hotels are rethinking their spaces for different uses - offering rooms for private day meetings, or offering suites for private dinners. Other hotels with meeting spaces are moving beyond daytime conferences and events, and figuring out how to book those spaces in the evenings, on holidays and weekends, for such things as exhibitions, workshops, rehearsals and pop-ups. Still other hotels are leasing work spaces or parking spaces to businesses in their local market. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on how some leading hotels are re-inventing their revenue management strategies.
