HIGHLIGHTS: Conrad Tokyo, Japan
Our first hotel of the honeymoon! We stayed at the Conrad Tokyo on a Free Night Certificate on my Aspire, and had a fantastic time. Highlights include a beautiful upgraded room, and an amazing breakfast. It’s a bit out of the way and not close to much, but within walking distance to a metro line with which to explore Tokyo. I would highly recommend this experience, at least once. It was my first time at a Conrad (of three this honeymoon) and a blast.
My standard hotel reviews include a breakdown by the following topics. Feel free to skip to whichever section you find most interesting.

LOBBY & CHECK-IN
From Haneda we took a train line to the city, and then had to walk a good distance lugging our luggage, and the entrance is a bit obscured and disorienting, as you enter on the ground level and take a separate bank of elevators to the lobby. But we were immediately greeted with pleasant service, cold towels, and fresh juice, to make our welcome warm and pleasant. They were very kind and held our luggage as our upgraded room was not yet ready, but I’ll wait for a larger room any day.
As I mentioned we had to wait a bit for the room to be ready, so we were came back in the evening. I was pleased with the large spacious room with an extra half bath. The nice sweets and hotel swan were touching as well. I especially enjoyed the large bathroom with his and hers sinks, as well as a tub – perfect for a soak! The rain shower and head were also a pleasant experience.
HOTEL SPACE / AMBIANCE
As mentioned there is a very large ground floor entrance directing you to the elevator bank sending you up to the lobby floor. There were plenty of fancy people about, with couples and tourists alike. A wide range of business people and travellers during breakfast as well.
FOOD & DRINK
We had the fantastic breakfast at the lobby restaurant, with a huge buffet spread and some fresh made-to-order omelettes. The tater tots were especially good and I enjoyed the wide variety as well as my ready-made french toast – light, fluffy, with a side of syrup.
The fitness center is down a long hallway, and is decently sized. It also has a beautiful view overlooking the hotel pool. I’m glad I got a chance to enjoy it before shipping out the next day.
I would definitely stay at the Conrad Tokyo again – the great service, nice room, and delicious breakfast spread made for a great time. Additionally, we explored Akihabara, and I had a craving for a burger. I found Henry’s Burgers which was okay, supplemented by ramen and McDonald’s. On a United flight in watching videos on burgers just made me crave!

Looks nice! I want to stay there soon.
Thanks Tim! You should – it’s a great place.
We have stayed at this property a few times in the past. The best way to get there from the airports with minimal walking with luggage include: From Narita-take the Airport Limousine Bus. This is the best option from Narita. The bus stops at the Conrad. From Haneda-take the Airport Limousine Bus, if it fits your flight arrival. If not, the easiest plan B options include: -taking Keisei-Metro Asakusa Line to Shimbashi, then walk about 1/4 of the mile to Conrad (short walk) or -taking Keisei-Meto Asakusa Line, then transfer to Ooedo Line at Daimon, then get off at Shiodome… Read more »
Thank you Naoyuki! I will look into luggage delivery should we need that in the future. We got the shinkansen pass so wanted to use that for transport.
Depending on where you are going to/from, JR-only routing is not necessarily the most convenient. It’s true in most parts of central Tokyo, and it is especially true in Kyoto. I guess the reason I posted my comment is that your account misleads your reader to think that the Conrad is somehow inconveniently located if you are coming from Haneda, which is totally false. The Conrad Tokyo is very conveniently located, as long as you are willing and able to use the metro system to your advantage. The fact that you had to walk a long way from the JR… Read more »
