PARIS -- 

FAUCHON Hospitality, which debuted its first hotel in Paris in September of 2018, will open a second property in Kyoto, Japan, it was announced today by Jacques-Olivier Chauvin, President and CEO. FAUCHON has been a well-known brand in Japan for the past 47 years, and currently manages 28 shops, two cafes, and two bakeries with cafes throughout the country.

The five-star FAUCHON Hotel Kyoto will open in 2020 in the center of Kyoto, in the Shimogyo-ku district, approximately 10 minutes from the most interesting districts (Gion, Higashiyama and Kawaramachi-Shijo). The hotel will feature 70 guest rooms and suites as well as a FAUCHON Bakery on the street level. Check-in/reception will be located on the top floor, which will also be home to The Grand Café FAUCHON, with a spectacular view over Kyoto and the surrounding mountains. FAUCHON Hotel Kyoto is part of a services and trademark license agreement between Hotel W Management Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Wealth Management, and FAUCHON Hospitality.

According to Mr. Chauvin, “FAUCHON Hospitality is in an ambitious development phase. In addition to the Kyoto property, we are in advanced stages of talks for FAUCHON Hotels located in cosmopolitan cities across Europe, North-America, Middle-East and Asia, in order to keep pace with our strategy of operating 20 hotels by 2028.”

The 54-room FAUCHON L’Hotel Paris, a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, was the first property for the renowned French food purveyor as they, like other luxury brands, entered the hotel industry. At a time when many hotels are dialing back the culinary component of a hotel experience, one of the distinguishing elements of a FAUCHON Hotel is to leverage the brand’s 130-year-old legacy as innovators of fine Parisian gastronomy to create a domain of service excellence, decadent gourmet cuisine — including the brand’s iconic “Gourmet Bar,” luxurious five-star hospitality, and tailor-made local experiences.

The FAUCHON Hospitality brand’s Unique Selling Proposition is easily defined as “GLAM“: GOURMET (the most creative Parisian patisserie adhering to the French culinary tradition); LOCATION (at the heart of the urban life of the city); ARTISTS (artisans and attentions with bespoke artwork and activities curated specifically for the hotel; and MESDAMES (a hotel always in tune with women featuring sophisticated lighting, Dyson hairdryers, properly sized bathrobes, Carita amenities, and more).
