InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8, an IHG Hotel

In 2019 the InterContinental opened its second property in the port city of Yokohama, with 173 guestrooms and suites ranging from 45 to 133 square metres and providing great port views. The hotel echoes its location with a gentle nautical theme. Ascend to the Pier 8 rooftop and you may feel like you’re on one of the cruise ships you can see sail past. Dine in the Larboard Restaurant and Bar on yōshoku (local versions of European dishes). It serves a half-buffet style breakfast, an à la carte lunch and a table d’hôte dinner menu. Or pop into the Katabami sushi bar for food. There’s also a spa, courtyard and fitness centre.

The Westin Yokohama

Coming from an international brand that places an emphasis on wellness, this hotel is just a year old and the sixth Westin in Japan. Naturally, the spa, with its indoor pool area is a draw. There are five places to eat onsite; Brasserie du Quai serving French cuisine, Kissui-sen for contemporary Japanese food, the Iron Bay grill on the 23rd floor, Code Bar and Sugar Merchant overlooking Mount Fuji (do try the themed afternoon teas and arrive early for the best window seats). 373 bedrooms are bright with floor-to-ceiling windows, ultra-modern bathrooms and tea/coffee-making sets.
