Dorchester Collection to Open Hotel in Japan’s Tallest Building

Dorchester Collection has announced that it has been selected to manage the hotel within “Torch Tower,” the tallest building in Japan, by Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd. and Tokyo Century Corporation. The hotel is scheduled to open in 2028.

Located in the upper floors of Torch Tower, the tallest building in Japan, the new hotel will offer panoramic views of Tokyo Bay, the city center, as well as of Mt. Fuji. The hotel slated to open in the building will be the first Dorchester Collection hotel in Asia, offering Japanese hospitality, alongside the brand’s signature service and experiences.

Christopher Cowdray, chief executive officer, Dorchester Collection, said: “This new hotel will become a beacon for Japan’s ultra-luxury hotel landscape and set new benchmarks. World-class architects will inspire with their symbolic design torch concept, lighting up not only the future of Tokyo and Japan but also the world. Tokyo has long been an integral part of our growth strategy given it is a gateway to Asia and its global significance, and to be partnering with the highly esteemed Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd. and Tokyo Century Corporation is a true honor. Their core values are perfectly aligned with ours given the vision of ‘a love for people, a love for the city’ and our ‘We Care’ philosophy.”

Junichi Yoshida, president and chief executive officer, Mitsubishi Estate Co., said: ”We are delighted to welcome the historic and traditional Dorchester Collection as our partner. We are confident that by infusing the culture and hospitality that Dorchester Collection has cultivated over the years, the hotel will provide a ‘one-of-a-kind experience’ that is unique to this location.”

Dorchester Collection comprises nine hotels in London, Paris, Milan, Rome and Los Angeles. Next year, the group will open its first hotel in the Middle East, The Lana, Dubai.
