Prince Hotels, Inc. was established on June 4, 1956 by the Seibu Group’s core business Seibu Railway Co., Ltd. to manage its Prince Hotels located in the Tokyo metropolitan area.
Since our founding, we have offered facilities and services ideally suited to cosmopolitan Tokyo such as the Takanawa Prince Hotel (now the Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa), Akasaka Prince Hotel (previously Grand Prince Hotel Akasaka) and the Tokyo Prince Hotel which was constructed in time for Japan’s inaugural Tokyo Olympics. In addition, we established major tourist route in Hawaii, United Sates by opening the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel.
In Japan, we opened a series of large-scale hotels particularly in the Tokyo metropolitan area. In addition to providing enhanced banquet room facilities such as one of the country’s largest, the ‘International Convention Center Pamir’ at the New Takanawa Prince Hotel (now the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa), capable of hosting 3,600 guests, we also catered to the demand for events with entertaining dinner shows.
On October 1, 2011, Prince Hotels formed a joint venture with Seibu Golf Co. Ltd, which manages hotels and golf courses in Kanto and Kansai region and with this merger combined the hotel and golf business of both the companies creating a formation which utilizes the merits of both the chains to the fullest.
Prince Hotels has been embarking on incubating various new business models. Such as, in April 2012, the management of Showa Kinen Park and Musashi Kyuryo National Government Park was given to Prince Hotel. Also in April 2012, we started selling natural mineral water good for the body from Minamiuonuma-Hakkaisan in April itself. In 2013 April, we started a restaurant in the Taisho University. In 2013 December, we started operations of the large solar energy farm “Prince Energy Eco Farm Nango” in Miyagi Prefecture.
In the future, we aim to provide facilities and services tailored to the needs of our guests while managing the business to contribute to the natural and global environment, moving in cooperation with the society.
