I was on a business trip to Toyama where I would be spending my days at the Convention Centre. For convenience, I stayed at the Crown Plaza across the street. I got more than convenience! It was a great stay.
The breakfast that was included in my rate was exceptional. I would have to say it is the one of the best breakfast buffets I've had at a hotel. There was a lot of variety (of both Japanese and North American foods) so always something to satisfy lots of preferences (ice cream for breakfast, anyone?).
I had a view of the beautiful Toyama Castle so it was really lovely to wake up to that every day (ask for a room on that side when you check in ). The room was smaller than North American standard but was bigger than most of the European hotels I've been in. It was definitely enough though - desk, two chairs, two twin beds, night stand, mirror, and fully quipped bathroom with an awesome soaker tub.
The sky bar is also quite lovely and has beautiful views of Toyama (pricy of course, as all penthouse bars in hotels are).
Great value here and I'd recommend for people who like to be near things and have the comforts of home blended with the local eccentrics.More
