Japan’s “Ice Capital” Sapporo To Get New Mercure Hotel
The Mercure is in the heart of the city, perfectly positioned for enjoying the Snow Festival. It is also well-located for transfers to the nearby ski slopes. The hotel is located next to the entertainment and night life area of Susukino and just a short walk from the central business district and the famous Sapporo TV Tower landmark.
Mercure Sapporo has 285 rooms with Parisian design accents as well as all the modern in-room facilities including flat screen TV, in room safe and provide free high speed Internet access.
The subtle French accent continues into the restaurant, Bordeaux, which will serve French cuisine with a selection of signature dishes created by the hotel’s head chef Taisuke Hara, supported by Mercure’s Grand Vins wine selection.
The hotel also offers five meeting rooms providing the city with superior facilities and services for events.
General Manager – Mercure Hotel Sapporo, Mr Stephane Bryer says “The hotel is likely to be very popular with Australians as a base for winter skiing because it offers the combination of proximity to the ski-fields and the vibrancy of a sophisticated city with great night life. It is also a perfect base during our summer months because there is so much to see and do in the city and its surrounds. It’s undoubtedly one of Tokyo’s most attractive and stylish cities. “
