An International Hotel
Located adjacent to an international convention and exhibit hall, the InterContinental Yokohama Grand caters to the needs of international business travelers and during conventions, provides the premium services and facilities demanded by such events.
A Relaxing and Tranquil Urban Resort
Located on the Yokohama waterfront, the hotel provides the relaxing feel of an urban resort that is enhanced by details such as open, airy spaces and oversized windows in guest rooms. The hotel provides a spectacular, unobstructed, panoramic view of the Yokohama harbor, and at night, the night view rooms also offer beautiful vistas of the Yokohama city lights. The view from any room gives our guests the relaxing sensation of escaping the hustle and bustle of the city.
Building Shaped Like a Yacht Under Sail
The buildings along the waterfront of the Minato Mirai 21 area were designed to evoke the ocean. The conference center resembles a shell, the exhibit hall evokes the image of a wave, and the InterContinental Yokohama Grand is shaped like a yacht under sail. The hotel's exterior lighting is also quite unique. It conforms to the phases of the moon such that during a new moon the hotel is brightly lit, but during a full moon the lights are dimmer. So at night the yacht under sail becomes a moon on the earth.
