Expected to open in Autumn 2018, the hotel is being developed as part of the MSB Tamachi mixed-used complex and will feature 143 rooms, meeting facilities and several dining concepts. 

The hotel will be directly connected to the JR Tamachi Station east exit and will be a three-minute walk from the Toei Subway Mita Line, and around 30 minutes by public transport from Haneda International Airport. It will also be located just one stop from JR Shinagawa station, which offers connections to Osaka and Kyoto via bullet train.

Patrick Basset, chief operating officer for upper southeast and northeast Asia at AccorHotels said: "Japan keeps attracting more and more international travelers, with historically high-growth rate recorded in the beginning of 2017. The increasing inbound market, especially from Korea and other Asian countries (China, Taiwan,Indonesia, Vietnam) is on a continuous positive trend which will be amplified as the country will benefit from the worldwide attention with the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympic Games."

In Japan, AccorHotels has 12 hotels in its network across Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Sapporo and Okinawa. The brands include Swissotel, Pullman, Novotel, Mercure, Ibis and Ibis Styles. The hotel group first entered the Japanese market in 1995.
