TOKYO, Japan and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Worldwide (NYSE: HLT) and Hilton Hotels & Resorts today announced the opening of the Hilton Tokyo Odaiba. The property is Hilton Worldwide's 12th hotel in Japan, and the sixth in the Kanto region alongside Hilton Tokyo, Conrad Tokyo, Hilton Odawara Resort & Spa, Hilton Tokyo Bay and Hilton Narita.

"Hilton Tokyo Odaiba is a significant addition to our portfolio in Japan and the Kanto region and underscores our deep commitment to serving this market. The location makes the hotel a great base for both leisure and business travelers visiting Tokyo, and positions us well to capture opportunities from Japan's rising inbound tourism and the momentum building for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020," said Timothy Soper, vice president of operations for Japan, Korea and Micronesia, Hilton Worldwide.

In its immediate vicinity is a popular entertainment and shopping area featuring shopping malls, an amusement park, a bay cruise and parks with scenic views of the Tokyo Bay area.

"Odaiba is one of Tokyo's most popular tourist destination and dating spots, famous for its shopping centers, museums and landmarks such as the Fuji TV," said Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide. "The Hilton brand's legacy in Japan goes back to the opening of our first Hilton hotel in Akasaka, Tokyo in 1963. Today, after having operated in this important market for over half a century and with this latest addition, we now have ten Hilton-branded hotels across key locations in Japan including Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Okinawa. Hilton Tokyo Odaiba is strategically located to continue delivering modern service hospitality and innovative product offerings synonymous with the Hilton brand to both Japanese guests as well as global travelers visiting Tokyo."
