Prince Hotels, Inc. will debut its first hotel in Japan's 3rd largest metropolitan area of Nagoya in the fall of 2017. Nagoya is popular as the midway point on the "Golden Route" tourist route which links Tokyo and Osaka, popular with tourists from overseas.
The "Shoryudo (Dragon Route)" which can be used to travel to the Noto Peninsula while sightseeing at the "Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go and Gokayama" world heritage site or other locations, is also becoming a very popular tourist route.
In addition, further development in the area is expected as a result of the Chuo Shinkansen, which is scheduled to be developed for 2027 to link Shinagawa and Nagoya in approximately 40 minutes.
The Prince Hotel will be opened on the 31st through 36th floors of the "Global Gate West Tower" complex located in the redevelopment area which lies to the south of Nagoya Station and will feature approximately 170 guest rooms, restaurants, a club lounge, fitness center, business center and a conference center from the 2nd to 4th floors.
