Hotel Review: Conrad Tokyo King Suite Bay View

After flying ANA First Class Square to Narita International Airport and taking the Narita Express to Tokyo, we headed to the Conrad Tokyo, where we were staying five nights. We booked the stay using Hilton HHonors points and because I was a Hilton HHonors diamond, the hotel upgraded us from a standard room to a King Suite Bay View room, which was a nice surprise!

How You Can Do It

The Conrad Tokyo is a category 10 hotel on the Hilton HHonors award chart, so a standard room will cost 70,000 to 95,000 points per night depending on what time of the year you stay at the hotel. If you are a silver, gold, or diamond Hilton HHonors member, however, you get the 5th night free whenever you book a 5-night stay. As a result, The total cost will be between 280,000 and 380,000 Hilton HHonors points.

You can earn Hilton HHonors points via credit card signup bonuses. Credit cards, such as the Amex Hilton HHonors credit card and the Citi Hilton HHonors credit card, also give you Hilton HHonors silver status and do not charge an annual fee. As a result, you can keep those cards open forever and be able to get the 5th night free whenever you redeem for 5-night stays.

Last but not least, the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve credit card gives you two free weekend nights at almost any Hilton property as a signup bonus. That credit card also provides complimentary Hilton HHonors gold status so you can get free breakfast during your stay at the Conrad Tokyo. The card does have an annual fee of $95, which is not waived, so I would cancel the credit card after the first year.

Conrad Tokyo King Suite Bay View

The Conrad Tokyo is one of the best hotels in the Hilton HHonors umbrella, and you can tell they take pride in that. Even by Japanese standards, the service is impressive, and all the rooms are beautiful featuring lighted bathroom mirrors and curtains controlled by an electronic switch. In addition, the Conrad Tokyo is in a great location accessible from both Shimbashi Station and Shiodome Station. It’s also just a 5-10 minute walk to the famous Tsukiji Fish Market, which is a must do when you are in Tokyo.

 

Conrad Tokyo is close to Shimbashi Station, a large subway stop, and the hotel is very close to Shiodome Station, a smaller subway station.

The front entrance is where cars drop guests off, and the back entrance is where you can reach the hotel by walking from Shimbashi or Shiodome

The Main Point

The Conrad Tokyo King Suite Bay View room was definitely one of the nicest hotel rooms we’ve ever stayed in, right up there with the Park Hyatt Washington Park Executive Suite. The rooms are top-notch, service is good, and I personally love the location. It doesn’t hurt that the breakfast was free, and the Conrad Tokyo’s Executive Lounge was fantastic. I’ll review those aspects of the hotel as well as other facilities in the next post.
