Hotel – Hilton Tokyo

While we would usually stay on points, Hilton hotels in Asia were offering a 50% discount on rooms for the time period when we would be staying. Sometimes it’s better to save your points and earn more when on cash. Being a Hilton Diamond member, we were upgraded to a nice and spacious King room. We were able to enjoy the Executive Lounge several times for breakfast and evening appetizers. Great selection each day. The Lounge also seats you which is something we haven’t seen before. This is very helpful as the lounge gets full, however not so great if you need a certain type of table or a power plug though the staff tried to accommodate those requests. We were on the 37th floor which was great, except when taking the elevator down. The hotel was so extremely crowded that most times, we stopped at every floor on the way down. The fitness center was nice and had the equipment we needed. The hotel advertises tennis courts, but charges $50 an hour to play. The room service menu was very high-priced as well. ($40 for a burger.) We did find a better selection for breakfast in the lobby restaurant, which was also included as Diamond members. The lobby always seemed to be packed and crowded. Not a bad thing, just an observation. The hotel also provides free shuttle service to/from Shinjuku station which was nice and they offer transport to Haneda airport for about $12USD each and Narita for about $35 each.
