On a mission to bolster its Japan portfolio, Best Western Hotels & Resorts has launched Best Western Plus Fukuoka Tenjin-minami, which represents its very first project in Fukuoka, an attractive coastal city and the largest metropolis on the island of Kyushu.
The brand-new midscale property stands in the centre of Tenjin, Fukuoka’s downtown district, and is surrounded by stylish bars and restaurants. Ideal for culture junkies, it is within arm’s reach of cultural sites, including Maizuru Park, Kego Shrine and the Fukuoka Art Museum.
Best Western Plus Fukuoka Tenjin-minami stands within walking distance from Tenjin subway station, offering seamless connectivity to connections to Fukuoka Airport, and to JR Hakata Station, the main terminal for the Kyushu Shinkansen bullet train network.
The perfect option for business and leisure travellers alike, the new property comprises 236 rooms with comfortable beds, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, power showers, working spaces and complimentary WiFi. Other facilities include an onsite restaurant serving breakfast and local and international dishes, a lounge, a gym and a 24-hour business centre.
Managing director of international operations – Asia, BWH Hotel Group, Olivier Berrivin commented on the new hotel: “With its sub-tropical climate and outdoor café culture, Fukuoka is one of Japan’s most livable cities. Best Western Plus Fukuoka Tenjin-minami will provide local and overseas guests with international-standard accommodations and amenities in a premier destination. The launch of this new hotel marks the latest phase of our Japanese development strategy as we continue to introduce our world-class hospitality to destinations nationwide.”
In total, Best Western Hotels & Resorts now operates over 20 hotels in major cities, including Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama, Nagoya and Sapporo.
