Which historic hotel is considered a monument and one of the oldest western style hotels in Japan?

If you guessed Hotel New Grand (1927) in Yokohoma, Japan, you guessed correctly!

After the Great Kanto earthquake on September 1, 1923, which destroyed much of Yokohama, leaving more than 30,000 dead and over 47,000 wounded, the mayor, Chuichi Ariyoshi, actively led the community in a reconstruction process. His first priority was the construction of a hotel, and the plan was supported and welcomed by the citizens of Yokohama. Hence, the Hotel New Grand was opened in 1927 and has since acted as an international hotel symbolizing the history of Yokohama. Over the decades, the Hotel New Grand has been lovingly and carefully preserved. The cultural heritage has been embraced and restored to its original splendor, and modern additions and enhancements have been made. Over the years, the Hotel New Grand has welcomed many famous dignitaries and celebrities through its historic doors, including Charlie Chaplin, Babe Ruth, the Duke of Gloucester, and more. The famous Japanese master writer, Jiro Osaragi, was a resident of Hotel New Grand in room 318 for more than 10 years.
