TOKYO -- Dormy Inn, a chain of Japanese business hotels popular with tourists, has weathered the boycott by South Korean travelers by tapping its appeal among the Chinese.

Dormy Inn has been a success story in almost every way. Over the past nine years, shares in operator Kyoritsu Maintenance have risen tenfold and operating profit has roughly quadrupled. The hotel business was Kyoritsu's leading earner last fiscal year.
