2. Facility Features
The hotel was designed under the concept of “HAKATA TSUMUGI: Hakata townhouses that link memories of good old-fashioned towns, people, and culture to the future.” The hotel possesses a lobby created in the image of unique shingled walls called Hakata-bei with the stone cobbling of machiya townhouses, and a lounge decorated with modern arrangements of traditional crafts and cultural works. The hotel welcomes guests while enveloping them in the feeling of Hakata.
The guestrooms are also decorated with traditional Hakata-ori textiles, providing a sense of serenity as if guests are relaxing in their own home. On the highest floor (13th floor), a mock hot spring serves as an indoor bath, along with a mock carbon spring open air bath and a steam sauna installed in a wide large public bath area, where guests can rejuvenate from the exhaustion of travel or work. The restaurant on the first floor offers breakfast and regional cuisine with the tastes of Hakata.
