Experience the Superb Hospitality and Charms of the Imperial Hotel Osaka
Imperial Hotel Osaka is a comparatively new hotel opened in 1996. However, it continues the tradition of top class hospitality and comfort of Imperial Hotel Tokyo. Here are the many charms of Imperial Hotel Osaka.
In proximity to nature
Imperial Hotel Osaka is located in an area filled with nature, along the Okawa River and surrounded by water and greenery. It is a superb location to enjoy approximately 4,000 cherry blossom trees in Kema Sakuranomiya Park, one of the most famous places in Japan for cherry blossom viewing in spring, and the summer fireworks of the Tenjin Matsuri festival, which has more than 1,000 years of history. If you are visiting from Kansai International Airport or by shinkansen (bullet train), it is very easy to access because there is a free shuttle bus service available from Osaka Station.
When you enter the lobby, you might notice a slight and comforting scent tickling your nose. At Imperial Hotel Osaka, they have adopted the "hospitality of scent" since its opening.
Out of various scents used, the most popular among their guests is the original fragrance created in the image of cherry blossoms. It is a gorgeous yet delicate Japanese scent, perfect for a hotel located in an area famous for cherry blossom viewing. You can also purchase it at a hotel shop. They sell it as a diffuser called the "Imperial Fragrance - Sakura" (4,320 JPY (incl.tax)).
They also use scents that have a relaxation effect on their amenity goods.
Refined and graceful guest rooms
Guest rooms are the core of a hotel. Those in the Imperial Hotel Osaka are created as if to condense its history and dignity. The 19th to 21st floors are special floors called "imperial floors" and they hold luxurious suites which are more than 100㎡, as well as junior suites with a mist sauna, et cetra. Since there is a dedicated floor butler on each floor to fulfill various requirements, you can receive attentive service. In the guest rooms, they have created "Sleepworks," a bedding set including duvet that was developed by the hotel as original bedding to provide guests with high-quality sleep.
