JAPANESE hospitality company Fujita Kanko has opened a new hotel in the northern city of Sendai under its Washington brand, which the company says is a “high grade of budget hotels”.
The 223-key, newly built Sendai Washington Hotel is located across the JR station in Sendai, the capital city of Miyagi prefecture and largest city in Tohoku region.
All guestrooms come with free Wi-Fi while a women-only section of the hotel offers rooms with amenities and décor catering to the female traveller.
Additionally, Sendai Washington Hotel features a restaurant serving local products and Sendai specialties.
Fujita Kanko operates another eight Washington hotels in Tohoku region, the upscale Towada Hotel in Akita Prefecture, and Hotel Chinzanso in Tokyo that was last year rebranded from the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo (TTG Asia e-Daily, June 29, 2012).
