Beautiful Hotel Sep 16, 2006
This is an absolutely beautiful hotel that we enjoyed so much. I couldn't tell you how much the rooms were because we were guests of a Japanese company that invited us. How thankful I am of their generosity.
Our room was very large with a beautiful bath. The bath area was very large with an absolutely huge bath tub. There was a glass wall, which still allowed privacy but also brought in natural light. Selections of shampoo and other toiletries were of very nice quality and towels were huge and fluffy. I loved it since by the time we arrived there I was ready for some pamper and relax time.
We had a king bed. Here again it was very luxurious. A high quality and very comfortable bed. The window wall was was almost entirely glass which gave us a great view of the river, palace, park and an awesome bridge. I wish I knew the name of the bridge.
The lobby is gorgeous with a large fountain and sculptures of the famous Cormorant fishing birds. Cormorants have been used to fish the Nagara River for centuries and we could see them from our room.
Although not located on the river, there is a large park between the hotel and river shore. At any time of day you could see people rollerblading, running, or just walking down an excellent paved trail which follows the river. Of course, you can also see many fishing boats that are still using Cormorants.
Across the river is a Palace on top of the hill. One of the guys in our group went for an early morning run all the way to the top. I wish I would of been able to see it, but there's no way I would of been able to do it.
The staff was very professional and friendly. We attended an event in the conference room where the food was beautiful and deliciously prepared, and featured dishes from many different cultures. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in the area.
