“short stay but fine”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

The hotel was fine and typically Western style but the gardens in Kanazawa are the real stars. Make sure to visit the Nomura Samurai Residence for a real treat. Also wonderful on a sunny day is the Kenrokuen garden with its massive pine trees so expertly supported with tons of bamboo scaffolding. The hotel is adjacent to the train station which has restaurants but go just a little past that that to the seven story shopping mall and to one of the top floors for a huge selection of restaurants. We went kind of late so many were winding down and we use the good old "go where the most customers are" tip to choose a good one.

Dear Garry-Appleseed,


Thank you for staying at ANA Crowne Plaza Kanazawa for your recent trip to Japan and posting your comments on Trip Advisor. Kanazawa City is the one of the most beautiful city which has remains of historic building. The sightseeing spot you mentioned is one of the most popular spot in the city. The loop of Pine trees, we call them “Yuki Tsuri”, is designed to prevent pine branch from being broken by heavy weight of snow. In fact, “Yuki Tsuri” is limited in winter season, but in Kanazawa we are able to enjoy different sense of the season, for example, the cherry blossoms in spring, greenery in summer, and autumn color of leaves in fall. We really hope that you will be able to enjoy different type of Kanazawa when you come back to Kanazawa. Thank you again for your stay, and we look forward to having you as our guests again.


Sincerely,


ANA Crowne Plaza Kanazawa

This is a really good businessman hotel which is equally suitable for smaller holiday groups. The rooms are well laid out and has all the usual amenities expected for a 5-star hotel. Parking at the hotel is easily accessible. For most travellers, the location close to a bus/train station is an important consideration. There are a few large shopping centers within walking distance from the hotel. There are quite decent restaurants in the neighbourhood if you want to try out dining away from the hotel. The layout of the buffet breakfast was quite congested especially in the morning period when there are lots of patrons. We spend only one night but wish we had 2 nights to get around the city and explore more. Maybe next time...

We stayed for two nights in Kanazawa Crowne Plaza. It is situated right by the railway station & easy to find. The entrance hall also serves as a wedding hall, so it's a bit of a design splurge, but the staff were very helpful and most spoke some English.

The room was a little small, but bigger than most Japanese hotel rooms. The bed was not as hard as many in Japanese hotels, so the sleep quality was good. Oddly, there was just one reading lamp even though everything else one might need (trouser press, hair dryer, mini bar,etc) is present.

Sadly, we didn't get a loo seat that lifts automatically on entering the bathroom as one other reviewer did, but the bathroom was a decent size.

We ate at the hotel on one night and strolled across the road to the basement of the shopping arcade on the other. The hotel food was good and not too expensive, but there are plenty of restaurants within five minutes walk (literally).

For the Brits: the hotel provides English tea! What more could we ask for?

All in all a very good hotel, ideal for tourists and business visitors alike.

We really enjoyed our stay here partly because we had been staying in mainly Japanese style hotels for several days and it was good to get back to something more 'western'.

They gave us a large modern room on the 17th floor. The most amazing feature of which was that the toilet seat cover lifted as you walked into the toilet. In fact it was the most high tech toilet i had ever seen with lots of auto flushing and deodorising going on.

The hotel is just a few metres from the train station. It is large and modern and the staff were really helpful with advice. It is close to the Loop Bus which will take you to all Kanazawa's main sites including the fantastic gardens.

There aren't many restaurants in the area so ate both nights in the hotel - once in the Chinese and the second night in the Tappanyaki restaurant on the top floor - both were good as was the buffet breakfast.

If you are looking for a comfortable 'Western' hotel near the station the ANA Crowne Plaza is highly recommended.

Thank you for your stay at ANA Crowne Plaza Kanazawa this time,
We also appreciate you for your warm feedbacks about your stay.

We could assume that you would stay at one of our "Deluxe Double Room" located on the plemium floor, 17th. The room is featured with the seperated bathroom and toilet and the toilet cover which automatically lifted as you walk in, as you have mentioned.
Compared to the prefabricated bath, it gives you a luxuary impression.

Also, the hotel itself is located in front of Kanazawa station where all bus routes start from including the Loop Bus stop. The loop bus takes you to the most of sightseeing places in Kanazawa including "Kenrokuen garden" and "Bukeyashiki (Samurai houses)".

We are glad to know that you would choose our restaurants in the hotel. We have 4 restaurants -Japanese, Chinese, Western, and Teppanyaki (Steak and Grill)- and they prepared seasonal dishes with local ingredients.

We thank you again for sharing your experience in our hotel Kanazawa.
It is always our pleasure to listen to guests' voices.

We all look forward to serving you again in your future trip too.

This Crowne Plaza had a friendly staff and quite recently remodeled guest rooms. The lobby was of a different era, but that did not diminish the quality of stay. It seems the hotel is quite popular for weddings, as we experienced several queues for the limited bank of elevators of people going up two or three floors. The breakfast buffet was reasonably priced and overall satisfactory. I would consider staying in this hotel again if circumstances bring me back to Kanazawa.

Thank you for staying at ANA Crowne Plaza Kanazawa this time.
We also appreciate on your kind feedback toward your previous stay.

As you have mentioned, the lobby and guests rooms are partially renovated few years ago and it impresses guests the modern atmosphere.
There is a special stage called "the stage AQUA" in the lobby where we present wedding ceremonies on weedends.

Our breakfast is prepared with more than 100 different dishes everyday including in-season dishes, opening from 6:00am to 10:00am. We hope you would find your favourite ones in the restaurant, "Cascade Dining".

We thank you again for your warm feedback and all look forward to serving you again in the near future too.

We stayed here for 2 nights in early October 2013. The hotel is obviously very conveniently located right next to the station, but a bit removed from the main sights. I guess you can't have both here; Kanazawa is easy enough to get around on foot or by cab though, so no major problems here. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Our room was a standard chain hotel room, no big complaints but nothing very special either. The bathroom looked a bit cheapish (pretty small, with a plastic washbasin, plastic shower curtain, hand shower, ...). Overall I would say this is a decent option if you want to stay close to the station for a couple of nights, but nothing memorable.

The hotel has very clean rooms, nice restaurants and a very convenient location for the trains and the buses to get around town. I wish it had a pool and gym though. The steak at the teppanyaki restaurant was probably the best meet I've ever had.
