Authent Hotel

2–15–1 Inaho, Otaru, 047-0032, Japan

This former department store in the heart of the downtown shopping area was remade into an elegant hotel. The lobby's creamy upholstery and yellow walls are echoed in the rooms, which are nicely furnished and have larger than usual bathrooms. There's also a shared Japanese bath where you can get to know your fellow guests. There's a small teppanyaki restaurant and an 11th-floor piano bar with city views. They are very proud of their breakfast (a buffet or Japanese set meals), but adding it to your room can be an additional ¥2,000.

PROS

  • central location
  • sunset views from piano bar

CONS

  • less-expensive rooms are boxlike
  • crowded with tour groups
