As far as trips go, Seoul to Hiroshima is not all too bad. A few glasses of vino at the Asiana Business Class Lounge, a one and a half hour flight from Incheon to Hiroshima Airport, a bus ride into the city center where the Sheraton is located and literally the easiest check-in I’ve had in a long time.
Aside from the awkward two different sets of lifts to get to the rooms, the Sheraton is pretty great. The ground floor lift goes up to the lobby which is on the fourth floor that also houses the cafe/restaurant/bar combo and is airy, spacious and modern. What can I say? I’m a sucker for high ceilings. The staff, in typical Japanese style, are friendly and helpful to a fault.
I was escorted to my upgraded corner room by a lady that probably weighed less than my suitcase and she helped me settle in, sorted out the situation with the a/c and left with a bow and a smile. Only in Japan guys, only in Japan.
Okay so let’s talk about this bed for a second shall we? King sized, and completely wasted on me. I just don’t know what to do with all that space. I guess I rolled around a few times before finally falling asleep last night but I don’t move much when I’m sleeping in bed so I guess it was good that all those pillows were acting as a boyfriend replacement #singlegirlproblems #asperusual. Definitely woke up well rested.
With the upgraded room comes a sitting area where my couch potato butt will be getting most of my work done and where I am currently typing out this entry from. The bathroom is nothing to call home about aside from the fact that there is a wet shower slash bathtub on one side of the vanity and the toilet on the other side but boy oh boy am I glad for all that vanity space. Let’s say somebody went a little crazy at duty free (again).
Next time you’re in this part of Japan, definitely give Sheraton a go.
