Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co., Ltd. (formerly JAL Hotels Company Ltd.) is a Japanese-owned global hotel management firm, majority owned by Okura Hotels since 2010. The hotel firm's managed properties are marketed under the Hotel JAL City and Nikko Hotels International brands. From its time as a subsidiary of Japan Airlines (JAL), its headquarters have been located in the JAL Building in Shinagawa, Tokyo, Japan.[1] In 2010, Japan Airlines sold majority ownership of JAL Hotels to the Okura Hotel chain, which is now the primary shareholder.[2]

History[edit]

JAL Hotels has been a hotel management company since its establishment in 1970 as a subsidiary of Japan Airlines Co. Ltd.

On July 1, 1996, Japan Airlines Development Ltd. was renamed to "JAL Hotels Company Ltd." to further establish its business description as a hotel operator.

On April 1, 1999, a merger with "Japan Airlines Hotel Co. Ltd." resulted in JAL Hotels taking over the management of the "Ginza Nikko Hotel" and "Kawasaki Nikko Hotel".

On September 30, 2010, the sale of JAL Hotels to Hotel Okura Co., Ltd. resulted in JAL Hotels becoming mainly owned by Okura Hotels, which holds 79.6% shares in the company, while Japan Airlines retains 11.1%; with 9.3% held by banks, other investors.[2]

The company renamed itself as Okura Nikko Hotel Management Ltd. on 1 October, 2016.
