FUKUOKA (Kyodo) Hilton Worldwide on Tuesday opened Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk in the city of Fukuoka, taking over a Japan Airline Corp. group inn.

The JAL group is undergoing bankruptcy procedures.

Hilton has removed the JAL logo from the 35-story hotel, which has 1,052 rooms, and plans to invest ¥2 billion to renew the lounge, leisure facilities and other shared space.

Manager Christian R. Baudat told reporters he hopes the hotel will attract its share of the local wedding banquet market. The Hilton group now operates eight hotels in Japan.
