The Intercontinental is a melon-shaped hotel anchoring the eastern edge of the ultra-modern Minato-Mirai harbor complex in Yokohama; thus it is extremely conveniently located, a 3 minute walk through walkways to the Minato-Mirai subway stop or a 10 minute walk (again through enclosed plazas to the Sakuragicho JR station; either way, one can get to the hotel door to door in literally <100 minutes from Narita. The second big plus is easy access to great food, dozens of restaurants in the adjoining Queens Place and Landmark Plaza complexes: tonkatsu, tempura, sushi, ramen, chinese, etc.... incredibly good food at very reasonable prices.
As for the hotel itself: as other reviews noted, somewhat tired decor; offset by very very generous sized rooms, (esp compared with the next door Royal), wonderful harbor views; biggest negative: liked Thursday, Friday; but, by weekend, was overrun with weddings and wedding guests. Free wireless worked well. Very reasonable rates: paid <$140/night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Minato Mirai area is the face of the cosmopolitan City of Yokohama in the 21st century. Opening in 1991, InterContinental Yokohama Grand is the first in Japan to be operated directly by the InterContinental Hotels Group chain. Since then, the hotel, with its majestic shape of a yacht's full sail, has become a proud symbol of Minato Mirai. We invite you to enjoy a relaxing stay in the hotel's elegant space surrounded by blue sea. ... more less
