I recently had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Conrad Tokyo and can’t say enough about the accommodations, the service and the amenities of the Tokyo luxury hotel. Prior to arrival, I was able to use the Hilton Honors app to communicate with the concierge team and to secure various activities during my stay, including reservations at Michelin starred restaurants I couldn’t have booked on my own.
Immediately upon arriving in the lobby, we were warmly and professionally-greeted by the staff. Service at this property is likely the best we’ve encountered of any hotels we’ve ever stayed at. Throughout our vacation, we enjoyed the help of the concierge team who was incredible and took great pride in the service provided.
About the Hotel
Conrad Tokyo occupies floors 28 through 37 in the Shiodome skyscraper in the Shimbashi business district overlooking Tokyo Bay and the picturesque Hamarikyu Gardens.
The hotel offers direct Shiodome station access making it very convenient to move around the city. We could also easily walk to the fashionable Ginza neighborhood and to the outer market of the famed Tsukiji Fish Market (the commercial fish auction relocated, but the outer market is vibrant and we could have spent a day there).
The luxury Tokyo hotel encompasses 290 luxury rooms and suites featuring a contemporary Japanese design and high tech capabilities.
About the Accommodations
There are four categories of king and twin rooms and 13 categories of suites. All accommodations boast a minimalist Japanese design, the latest technology and panoramic views of Tokyo. There are also four types of executive rooms. Executive rooms and suites offer private check-in and Executive Lounge access.
We stayed is a beautiful King Executive Suite Bay View with a king bedroom with a separate living room, walk-in wardrobe and spacious bathroom with rain shower and modern bathtub. The suite measured over 775 sq. ft. which is sizeable for a Japanese room.
The living room featured a sofa and armchair and a desk with a work chair smartly-placed by the floor to ceiling windows offering breathtaking views of Hamarikyu Gardens and Tokyo Bay.
Coffee-lovers will enjoy the Nespresso machine in the living room and the very well-stocked mini bar featuring premium liquor, including Japanese whisky.
The suite was so large that it took us until the end of our second day to realize there was a powder room right off the living room – what a nice perk!
The bathroom could be accessed from the living room or the bedroom and had pocket doors to close off the bedroom if guests in the living room need to use the primary bathroom. There was a marble double vanity, a wonderful rain shower and a modern freestanding tub. There was even floor heating, which is a nice touch after coming out of the shower.
Since we were in an executive suite, we had access to the Executive Lounge which serves complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, snacks and evening cocktails. We enjoyed before-dinner-drinks in the lounge where the staff made us feel very pampered.
Guests staying in an executive suite also have access to the full buffet breakfast experience at Cerise, the all-day restaurant off the hotel lobby. The breakfast buffet is extensive with high-quality food made using pristine ingredients. The offering ranges from pastries to western options and Asian favorites. Each diner was also able to order a breakfast entrée from the à la carte menu, but we were completely satisfied with the buffet. Service at Cerise is very polished and incredibly helpful.
