I stayed in at the Holiday Inn for 2 months for work. Sakura restaurant was the place to sit down and unwind. I usually asked for the non-smoking section which was like a private quarter. It was much quieter. The food is great. I usually ordered edamame, customized veggie sushi, shrimp tempura and of course their green tea was addicting. If you order dessert, it usually comes from their bakery near the another restaurant in the Hotel. No much choices in Japanese desserts but mainly common ones like mousse, cakes and ice cream.
If you stay at the hotel's 'apartment' section, you get a 25% discount on the tab and it is added to your hotel bill. The discount applies to all the restaurants and facility in the hotel. :) Awesome deal!
