InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8 opened as the second InterContinental property in Yokohama earlier this fall. The property, with its 173 guestrooms and suites, provides a relaxing atmosphere away from the hubbub of the city with views of the waterfront.
A unique rooftop space is open to hotel guests only. The Pier 8 rooftop boasts panoramic views of the water and up-close views of cruise ships traveling into and out of the port.
At The Larboard Restaurant & Bar, guests experience a range of dining options, from half-buffet dining at breakfast to a table d’hôte menu for dinner. At Katabami, a sushi bar serves edomae-style sushi and sake.
The property offers special transportation services between the hotel and the nearby InterContinental Yokohama Grand so travelers can enjoy experiences at both locations.
“The port of Yokohama opened in 1859. Shinko Pier, where our hotel is located, has long served as a gateway to the Pacific, welcoming and sending off many travelers. For example, the film giant Douglas Fairbanks and the American Major League Baseball team including Babe Ruth disembarked on this pier in the first half of the 20th century. From Japan, a team of athletes representing the country departed from this pier to participate in the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics. This year, which marks the 160th anniversary of the opening of Yokohama Port, we are going to open InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8 on this historic waterfront,” said Minoru Suzuki, general manager, InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8.
“From our hotel located by the sea, which is a relatively rare feature even in Japan, you can enjoy exclusive spectacles such as the sweeping view of the Pacific free of obstructions, and the dynamic arrivals of luxury cruise ships. Although situated in the center of the city of Yokohama, you can feel a resort-like atmosphere everywhere in the hotel, enabling us to provide you with fresh impressions at all times and no matter how many times you visit us. Pier 8 opens as a marine guest palace for a new era. We offer a hotel stay experience unique to this location, combined with the rich expertise of the InterContinental brand that has a history of more than 70 years.”
My husband and I arrived to The Water Club Hotel at the Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey, for our two-night stay and drove directly to valet parking. After the swift drop-off process, we took the escalator to the lobby to check in. With no one ahead of us in line, we were checked in and on our way to our room on the 30th floor in no time.
