The building seen in front of me is actually Hotel New Otani, not APA Hotel.
APA hotel and Makuhari Messe are connected directly via corridors like this.
Sorry for a dark picture. This is APA Hotel & Resort
APA Hotel viewd under sunlight. The triangular prism shape is kinda unique.
This time we stayed at Room 2801. Actually we reserved a single-bed room but somehow they missed the procedure. So they offered us this "Deluxe Twin B" as an upgrade. It's 35.03 square meter(about 377.059782 square feet)large and costs about 300 dollars for a night.
Entering the room.
Brief preview of the room.
Room 2801 is placed at the end of a hallway and is facing the ocean.
Seeing hallway to the bedroom from the portal.
Shoecase and refrigerator placed by the door.
Testing its capacity. Seems working fine.
Walk-in closet is set at the corner of the hallway.
Dressing table with mirror.
To the bedroom.
The sink is separated from the bathroom so it has enough room to breathe.
Face and hand soap
The bathtub is long enough to lie in.
Shower and soap dispensers. No problems at all.
And finally, the bed room.
The light seems too shiny on this image but actually its fairly moderate.
Desk and television.
There are two outlets but air purification system uses one. LAN socket is placed here.
Tea bags, pots, glasses et cetera.
Chair. Steadily built and comfortable.

The bed is just ordinary but two pillows each bed makes it really comfortable.

An alarm clock.

The parking lot underneath the room.
It's a really convenient place for Makuhari Messse visitors. There's 24/7 convenience store in the same building and the room has good insulation against noise so you can stay with comfort. The only criticism is that if you stay at floors too high, you have to wait for elevators to come so long.
