Earlier this year we officially launched our Luxury Hotel series on YouTube and the Hilton Tokyo graciously allowed us to visit their luxurious hotel in Shinjuku to film a tour.
The Hilton Tokyo is a 5-star hotel located near one of the busiest nightspots in Tokyo: Shinjuku. As Shinjuku became more popular among the younger generation, the Hilton moved its base from Akasaka to Shinjuku in 1984. Countless famous guests have stayed at the hotel including The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and most recently the US Basketball team. The hotel is directly connected to the underground trains giving guests easy access to travel around Tokyo!
As you enter the Hilton on the 1st the lobby greets you with an air of elegance. The lobby is very large and has a modern, stylish design with high ceilings. Check-in is done in the lobby with quick and impeccable service. In the lobby, you also have the concierge, the Marble Lounge and a bakery.
The Hilton bakery offers cakes, bread, and salads that guests or visitors can buy for themselves or as souvenirs. The Marble Lounge offers award-winning breakfast, lunch and dinner made by the Hilton’s chefs. The Hilton is also regarded as the Mecca of sweet buffets and started the first sweets buffet in Japan in 1984, so the Marble Lounge also offers guests delicious sweets buffets around the year. They have 4-5 themes a year, like Marie Antoinette, Alice in Wonderland, and the theme for March 2022 was Neo Hokusai. Their sweets buffet offers cakes, cookies, ice cream, chocolate fountains, and more. Besides a huge selection of sweets and cakes, the buffet offers a wide range of savory dishes – mainly Japanese cuisine.
The Hilton has 830 rooms and 124 suites. The biggest room at the Hilton is the Executive Tower Suite, measured at 65m2. As you enter the room you see the floor decorated with Shodo (Japanese calligraphy). The room is light and airy with two large windows giving you an amazing view of Shinjuku. The room is divided into a living room and a bedroom. The living room has a huge LCD TV, closet, a desk where you can do work and a comfortable couch. The bedroom has a huge bed with non-allergenic feather pillows. The spacious bathroom features a deep soaking tub, a separate shower and a Japanese style toilet with a washlet function Toiletries include shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, body wash, toothbrush, comb, and shower cap. Other extras also include the famous bathrobe, slippers, ironing board and more. The room offers guests executive benefits which means they can access the Executive Lounge.
In the Executive Lounge, guests can relax or work with an amazing view of Tokyo and Mt Fuji. Free food and drinks are available including complimentary breakfast and evening cocktails. Lounges are typically accessible to Hilton Honors members with Diamond elite status. It is also available to some guests who purchase or upgrade to certain rooms.
Guests can also access the state-of-the-art gym. Featuring treadmills, elliptical trainers, weights, and a tennis court. Next to the fitness center is the 15m long pool bathed in natural daylight.
The Hilton Tokyo is also known for its mouth-watering restaurants. Hilton Tokyo has three restaurants and two bars, offering Chinese, Japanese, and grill-style Western cuisine. Each restaurant has its own VIP room.
One of the restaurants named the Metropolitan Grill has an open kitchen, where you can see the chefs grill raw meat. If you aren’t sure what to order, we recommend the Hilton Tokyo signature steak with an excellent glass of red wine from Hilton’s famous wine list.
