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 ...
... got to be rather annoying.
There weren't many people out today, so taking pictures without unwanted tourists in them was quite easy. Most of the structures had mannequins, which you'll see in the pictures, but some were pretty creepy looking. If they wanted the mannequin to have a mustache or beard they put some Velcro on its face, which was funny.
Chris had a ...
We woke up around 7 a.m. and had some of the groceries we picked up. It was definitely octopus jerky that I picked up, but it wasn't bad. From after that mini-breakfast we headed downtown. There was some cool stuff along the way that I took pictures of. We immediately entered what seemed to be a club district, which was pretty dead since it was about 11:00 am. It was cool to see multi-level buildings with about 30 clubs in each of them, though. Bar ...
