ANA Crowne Plaza, OsakaThe former ANA Hotel Osaka, rebranded to ANA Crowne Plaza in 2008, is a white block with slender bands of windows that wrap around the facade. As part of the renaming, renovations included a new lobby and lounge, new restaurants, and a club floor. The updated lobby is an open, high-ceiling space with marble floors, spherical light boxes on the floor, and modern hanging lights. Mirrored columns lend the space a bit of bling. Rooms, unsurprisingly given the predominantly business clientele, have a sober, contemporary, corporate air to them.
