Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. is planning to open a Waldorf Astoria luxury hotel — the group’s highest standard of accommodation — in Osaka by 2025 ahead of the World Expo in the city, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Hilton will build Japan’s first Waldorf Astoria hotel near Osaka Station as it anticipates a recovery in travel demand among wealthy people in the post-pandemic era, the sources said. The chain is also planning to open a hotel of the same brand in Tokyo’s Nihombashi district in 2026.
