Prince Hotels is located on the 31st to 36th floors of Global Gate, a mixed-use complex erected in a redevelopment area south of Nagoya Station.

The lobby of Nagoya Prince Hotel Sky Tower features a 30 m high atrium that spans from the 31st to 36th floors, imparting a dramatic sense of spaciousness.
The restaurant is situated some 140 meters above ground level. It offers a comprehensive panorama and features buffet style dining with emphasis on Mediterranean cuisine.
For breakfast, Nagoya-meshi, which consists of dishes particular to the sushi food culture of Nagoya such as hitsumabushi eel on rice, tenmusu rice balls filled with shrimp tempura and kishimen flat-strip noodles, will be served along with ogura toast red bean paste on toast, allowing guests visiting from overseas to savor local delicacies while inside the hotel.
It is the Prince Hotel’s first business venture into Nagoya, a city whose most prominent feature is its accessibility to Japanese culture and history.
Aichi prefecture is composed of what historically was Owari and Mikawa provinces, and the three samurai (Nobunaga Oda [1534-1582], Hideyoshi Toyotomi [1537-1598], Ieyasu Tokugawa [1542-1616]) responsible for unifying Japan during the Warring States period who all hailed from this area.
As a nearby tourist attraction, Nagoya Castle is located about a 15 minute drive from the hotel. This castle was built in 1609 by decree of Ieyasu Tokugawa. Although it was destroyed by fire during the World War, it was later rebuilt in 1959.
On the south side of where Nagoya Castle once existed, the city of Nagoya is investing 15 billion yen in restoration work of Honmaru Palace, home of the feudal lords. Partial construction completed in May 2013, and it is now open to the public.
