BEST Western International (BWI) has its foot on the accelerator as far as expansion in Japan is concerned, having just unveiled Best Western Yokohama weeks after the launch of its second Tokyo hotel.
The 17th Best Western hotel in Japan, Best Western Yokohama comes hot on the heels of Best Western Tokyo Nishikasai’s opening (TTG Asia e-Daily, May 8, 2014).
Glenn de Souza, BWI's vice president of international operations for Asia and the Middle East, said: “Yokohama has always been Japan’s gateway to the world, and has a rich history as an important Asian city for trade and commerce. Its proximity to Tokyo and excellent transport links make it extremely accessible, while attractions like the Yokohama Marine Tower, Yokohama Stadium and Chinatown make the city an excellent destination in its own right.”
Guests can choose from single, double, twin and triple options, with all of Best Western Yokohama’s 185 rooms equipped with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi.The hotel will tap the city’s busy MICE scene with a 100m² meeting room capable of hosting events of up to 60 delegates.
Best Western Yokohama is located in the Tsurumi ward of Yokohama, close to the bay area and easily accessible from the JR Yokohama and JR Shinagawa stations.
