Marriott has opened a brand new hotel in Nagasaki, Japan, and it’s incredibly affordable whether you’re using cash or points.
Here’s what you need to know — and how to book!
Brand’s Debut on Japanese Island of Kyushu
Nagasaki Marriott Hotel has 207 rooms and suites; over two-thirds include private balconies. All rooms include flatscreen TVs and free Wi-Fi.
The hotel has 5 dining options, including an all-day restaurant and a bar. The hotel includes M Club, a 24/7 lounge for Marriott Bonvoy elites (Platinum Elite, Titanium Elite, and Ambassador Elite only) and guests staying on executive floors. Guests can access premium Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfast, and other perks.
Amenities include dry cleaning services, a fitness center, a conference room, and an outdoor terrace. Note that this property is not pet-friendly, so you’ll have to leave Fido at home.
“We are delighted to expand our portfolio of flagship Marriott Hotels in Japan with the opening of the first Marriott hotel in Nagasaki,” said Karl Hudson, Area Vice President Japan and Guam, Marriott International. “As global travelers’ needs and expectations evolve, so does Marriott Hotels, which have always led the travel industry with innovations that embrace style, design and technology.”
How To Book Nagasaki Marriott Hotel
Nagasaki Marriott Hotel has opened and is a member of the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, where you can earn and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points.
Cash rates are incredibly affordable — starting at just $150 per night in April — making this hotel a perfect candidate for a mattress run. Award nights are also decent, starting at 25,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night.
Whether you book with cash or points, you’ll want to earn Marriott Bonvoy points at some point. It’s extremely easy to earn Marriott points (even if you don’t stay with the chain) because you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards points. Both programs transfer to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio and will sometimes have limited-time transfer bonuses.
Marriott also offers several co-branded credit cards with welcome bonuses (when you complete minimum spending requirements) and some form of elite status.
Nagasaki Marriott Hotel is a true steal for Japan, as it’s incredibly cheap with Marriott Bonvoy points and cash. What makes it even sweeter is the hotel has quality amenities, such as fine dining, private balconies in most rooms, and the signature M Club. If you find yourself in Nagasaki, this hotel is a perfect option for an affordable mattress run!
