0.27km from Maruzen Sendai AER StoreI had a great stay at the Richmond Hotel Premier in Sendai in December 2018. I was only able to stay for one night, but it was a treat to myself. The staff were excellent and I had no problems with check-in or check-out. I was able to purchase a box from the hotel in order to have some of my shopping sent directly to my home. The staff were also kind enough to lend me a roll of tape to seal the box as well. The next morning, the front desk clerk assisted me in sending my box by takkyubin (courier) to my home. After check in, I took advantage of the free drinks and ice cream in the lobby. It was nice to be able to sit and relax for a few minutes before heading out to the shops again. My room was very nice. The bed was comfortable and there was a plug in the bedhead. I liked the understated decor and it was very quiet as I was at the end of a hallway. I had breakfast in the morning which was apparently included in my room charge. It was underwhelming, as the salad and fruit were prepacked. The pastries and breads were good and also fresh, they were very nice. I was disappointed that the only eggs on offer were hard boiled so I passed on them. That said, having the breakfast at no charge was a rather nice bonus and kept me going until I had a late lunch. I was able to leave my bags at the hotel both before check-in and after check-out before I caught my bus to my city, so I was able to do quite a bit of running around the city! I often stay at the Richmond Hotel Premier when I am in Sendai as a little treat to myself. It's an affordable luxury for myself and I look forward to my next visit.
