Spacious rooms with internet access and other modern amenities are yours at the Crowne Plaza Ana Kushiro, which has a lofty perch over the city's expansive harbor. One of the largest hotels in Kushiro, the Crowne Plaza rises 18 stories above the twinkling lights of the city's waterfront. The 180 tastefully decorated rooms and suites have TVs with pay-per-view movies, DVD players, and internet access. Well-lit work desks with eye-level outlets are great for business travelers, and everyone can enjoy the mini-fridges. Right-off-the-boat seafood is the specialty of the traditional restaurant, which overlooks the hotel's serene garden. Several other dining options are available, including room service. Same-day dry cleaning and laundry service is a big plus when you need to look your best. On-site parking is available for a daily fee. On the eastern coast of Hokkaido, the Crowne Plaza sits adjacent to Kushiro's Fisherman's Wharf. If you have the kids with you, less than a half-mile away is the Kushiro Children's Museum. The area is known for its natural beauty, which is evident when you make the drive 46 miles north to Lake Akan, home of the Akan International Crane Center. The JR Kushiro Railway Station is a half-mile north, and Kushiro Airport is 13 miles northwest. Expansive views of the harbor are one of the main attractions at the Crowne Plaza Ana Kushiro, which has a downtown address and modern rooms with internet access.
