Tokyo has witnessed robust market growth over the years and will continue to set itself as a key tourism, cultural and economic hub. The premium product and offering of Fraser Suites Tokyo will further complement the vibrant business and leisure destinations within the locality. "

Centrally positioned amid Tokyo's main transportations hubs, Akasaka station, Akasakamitsuke station and Aoyamaicchome station, it allows for quick and easy access around Tokyo and across cities.

Along with the government's plan to achieve its target of 40 million visitors by 2020 , we will expect to see a rise in room rates against the backdrop of increasing demand." said Choe.
