This is probably the best Hilton I have ever stayed at. Located in Niseko and part of the Niseko United area, the Hilton Niseko Village has its own ski-in ski-out facilities and shares its slopes with 2 other resorts, Hirafu and Annapuri, which are all in close proximity with each other and accessible either by a short bus ride or by ski slopes connected at the top of the mountain. There is a 4th slope, Hanazono, that is not part of Niseko United but just a short hop away to keep things interesting. Hirafu, the main resort town, is 10 mins by bus away and has lots of interesting small restaurants with lots of great fare on offer. It was sad to see however on a cold morning an elderly local man whose job is to clean the sidewalks spiking empty beer cans littering the pavements everywhere. Clearly poor manners by some visitors.
The rooms at the Hilton were tidy and clean and those that have a room facing Mt. Yotei offer the most gorgeous view of the volcano on a clear day. The rooms were reasonably sized and had plenty of space for your luggage but at the expense of a tiny bathroom which is standard for most Japanese hotels anyway. However the bathrooms were functional and always kept sparkling clean everyday. The only complaint I have about the room was the noisy refrigerator that emitted an irritating background hum which was annoying when sleeping.
The natural onsen is free for guests to use and includes both inside and outside baths. It faces Mt. Yotei so even if you can't spend a bit extra for the Mt. Yotei rooms you still get a stunning view of the volcano and the surrounding parks while relaxing in the hot onsen while the snow falls above your head. The Male/Female onsens are separate.
There is also a free ski valet in the hotel for your ski equipment and a small shop for basic amenities and snacks right in the hotel. WiFi is free in the lobby and the room has a cable connection which is an additional charge.
There might be a case for better value elsewhere when the hotel is charging at peak season rates but considering I obtained end of season rates combined with discounted lift rates meant for an unbeatable ski holiday deal at great value in a super hotel in a fabulous ski resort.
The Hilton Niseko Village is absolutely terrific!
