I booked a 4-bedded room for my family of 4. There are 4 single beds in the room. The room is very spacious. There isa table with 4 arm chairs at the side and a study table with flat screen TV.
There are 2 basins at a common area, 1 toilet and a bathroom with adjourning clothing area. We were very happy with the setup that allows individuals to be doing different activities while getting ready to leave in the morning.
There was room service. We asked for non-smoking and indeed there was no smell of smoke at all in the room nor corridor area.
I would strongly recommend this hotel.
We took the Airport Raid from New Chitose Airport and had 2 large suitcases with us.
The hotel is just to the left from the JR Sapporo station North exit (Hokkaido University). One traffic light straight and the hotel is to the left. L Plaze is to the right of the traffic.

... nice. Anyway we promptly left for his wife's parents house to perform the rice pounding. Now this house. It's like a house from a horror film. A house in the middle of nowhere on an abandoned farm. A broken, dark and shady windmill in the background and not a person in sight. Was pretty cool. For the next 3 hours we pounded rice (well I didn't as my shoulder's screwed) and I practised my limited Japanese. Inside my principles wife's parents (who are about late 80's) ...
... ramen (especially miso ramen in Sapporo, and once I was given cheese to sprinkle on top), butter caramel sweets, yakitori (meat skewers), curry soup, and Ghenghis Khan = lamb grill. All delicious! On Sunday afternoon, I joined an international lunch to meet some people actually living in the city. Mainly Japanese but our group also included 2 Americans, a Chinese, a Taiwanese, a Mexican, a Palestinian and a Scot (guess who!). All were highly enthusiastic to ...
... up for the night, we headed to Nakajima Park for their snow light festival. From what I read this isn't really an organized event, but people from the community come and put out their own snow candles. It was quite nice and luckily we got there in just enough time to see most of them before they started blowing the candles out for the night.
Our next stop was to another concurrently running festival, the Susukino Ice Festival. All of these activities are within about 8 blocks ...
... to learn it was my first time at karaoke since being in Japan, because they told me everyone goes, both young and old!
I had a busy but great day!
Wednesday was class and the chiropractor. After my appointment I was changing out of the slippers you wear inside the office and the chiropractor pointed at my feet and said "beach flip flops". I laughed and (tried) to tell her in America we wear them everyday. Luckily we had gone over how to say "everyday" in class ...
... the oldest operating pendulum clock in Japan.
While the Sapporo Clock Tower is one of the major tourist sites in Sapporo it wasn't particularly interesting to me and probably wouldn't be to most people who don't speak Japanese.
Next I went to the Sapporo Terebi-to aka the Sapporo TV Tower back at the eastern end of Odori Park. The tower has been built to look like the Eiffel ...
