Tokyo, Japan, October 7, 2019 - Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, and Mitsui Fudosan Hotel Management Co., Ltd. announced today that they have decided to formally name the Sapporo (N5W6) Hotel Project that began construction in May last year as Mitsui Garden Hotel Sapporo West and the hotel will open for business on February 20, 2020 (Thursday).
Reservations for the hotel will be available from today, October 7, 2019.
The hotel is four minutes on foot from JR Sapporo Station’s south exit in a location accessible to tourism spots such as the Former Hokkaido Government Building nicknamed the Red Brick Office, and Akarenga Terrace, which houses a number of famous shops.
Sapporo is a popular city and Hokkaido tourism destination for visitors not only from within Japan, but also those inbound from other countries. Along with the adjacent Mitsui Garden Hotel Sapporo (opened June 2010, 247 rooms) in the east, Mitsui Garden Hotel Sapporo West will serve accommodation needs for a variety of visitors from inside and outside Japan.
Exterior (Perspective rendering of completed building)
The exterior uses tiles modeled after Hokkaido’s featured brick designs, with a warm and calming entrance to welcome guests.
The first-floor lobby is a metropolitan monotone space with designs that take cues from Hokkaido’s traditions and culture, raising the anticipation of visitors who are heading off on their journey. The second floor, which is connected by stairs to an atrium from the lobby, has a restaurant that offers a buffet-style breakfast with regularly-used ingredients produced in Hokkaido. The restaurant operates as a café for lunch and dinner, which visitors who are not staying at the hotel can also enjoy. In addition, the second floor also has a large public bath for guests to soak away weariness from traveling. On the guest room floor, many of the rooms allow accommodation for up to three people so that families and groups can also enjoy passing the time together.
