"I am thrilled that Hilton Osaka's transformation master plan is well underway," Tim Soper, vice president of Operations, Japan, Korea and Micronesia, Hilton Worldwide. "For more than 50 years, Hilton Worldwide has always stood for the best in service, comfort and innovation; the transformational master plans that Hilton Osaka and four other Hilton hotels in Japan commenced in 2012 and that continues through 2015, are part of our continued commitment to ongoing facility developments to meet the changing trends of the market."

"Our guest room renovation has been designed to ensure guests feel relaxed and at home; with elegant Japanese design elements that will appeal to both our Japanese and overseas guests. Our new guests rooms and suites have been tailored to meet the changing needs and preferences of leisure and business guests today and for the years to come," said Herman Ehrlich, general manager, Hilton Osaka.

To create the sense of "home away from home", the new guest rooms feature wood furnishings and floorings, as well as, carpeting with subtle Japanese floral design in soft green hues and plum tones. Other Japanese touches include the mini bar that is fashioned to resemble a traditional red lacquer box, and the hints of deep green and reddish brown colors in the interior décor that are typically used on kimonos and Japanese textiles.
Additionally, the new Double rooms have a sofa for guests to relax on while they enjoy the views from their windows.

Some highlights of the newly-renovated rooms and suites on the specific floors are:
