Tribute’s The Kiroro in Hokkaido Debuts Renovation

Marriott’s Tribute Portfolio collection of independent boutique hotels has announced the completion of a renovation to The Kiroro, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Hokkaido, just in time for the 2016-2017 ski season. 

The renovation, which encompasses the hotel’s guest rooms, restaurants and public spaces, focuses on natural materials, such as stone, wood and leather, as well as hues and patterns that are native to Hokkaido. Each of the property’s 282 guest rooms and suites draws inspiration from local architecture, while the new lobby offers a spot to relax by the fireplace or in front of floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the mountain. Guests can also enjoy the enhanced on-site traditional Japanese onsen (hot spring), which includes a soothing stone sauna and additional seating, such as reclining chairs.

For dining, six different restaurants are available. POP is an all-day buffet restaurant serving breakfast and dinner dishes made from locally-sourced seasonal ingredients. A live noodle station serves soba, udon and ramen, while a special kids' menu caters to young guests. Fuga presents Edomae-style sushi (traditional) with an Omakase (Chef's Choice Course) menu offered with counter seating. For a heartier meal, Shunsai provides Hokkaido beef and local seafood grilled over charcoal, while Alla Moda serves set courses, à la carte dishes, custom pizza and an eclectic selection of wine and beer. European style cuisine is available at the Alpine Brasserie for breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea and bar-lounge services. Finally, Yanshu specializes in barbequed free-range pork and chicken, fresh fish and premium seafood that diners can grill right on their tables.
