Fodor's Expert Review Hotel JAL City Aomori

2-4-12 Yasukata, Aomori, , Aomori-ken, 030-0803, Japan

This nine-story art deco–style hotel curves around the corner as if it belonged in 1960s Miami Beach. The lobby is dominated by marble floors and walls and a gallerylike lighting scheme. A prime location makes shopping and exploring the city center easier, and because it's close to the harbor, you can easily walk along the waterfront in the morning. The rooms are bright and spacious.
