My friends and I were traveling around Tokyo and planned a one night stay in Mito, here at the President Hotel. The morning of 3/11/11 we dropped our luggage off and planned to return later in the day to check into our room. That afternoon the earthquake hit, and when we made it back to the hotel - no one was able to stay in the rooms (because of the damage, loss of power, and water) but we could stay in the Banquet Room with the other guests. They brought us tea, water, snacks, down comforters, sheets, and chairs to help us be as comfortable as possible. Our water supply (for the bathrooms) came from the hotel's own emergency tanks and the power was restored on the afternoon of 3/12. Because of the break-down in transportation in Mito, we were unable to get to the airport and thus stayed at the President Hotel for a total of 3 nights.
I know this isn't your typical hotel review - but the reason I'm writing this is to tell you how truly thankful and appreciative I was of their care and service. Even the President of the hotel was there daily to help out. We were never charged for our stay, and they continually fed us and provided for us in as many ways they could. I don't know what the situation was at other hotels in the area after this earthquake, but I think the President Hotel went above and beyond given the situation, and I would highly recommend them to any traveler in Mito, Japan.
