ANA Holiday Inn Sapporo Susukino opens in Japan

The Holiday Inn hotel brand entered Hokkaido with the opening of a property in the island's largest city, Sapporo, a city known for its abundance of year-round activities, locally-brewed beers and annual snow festival. The 178-room conversion ANA Holiday Inn Sapporo Susukino is the fourth Holiday Inn hotel to open in Japan, following the recent conversion of ANA Holiday Inn Kanazawa Sky in March.

The hotel underwent a major renovation that saw changes to all guestrooms and the lobby, which have been completely refurbished; a dining restaurant that was refreshed with new décor; and a new fitness center that will be added to the hotel.

Those staying at the hotel have three different restaurants to choose from.
