Hilton Tokyo Odaiba - King Terrace Suite
A special room for that special occasion
I was looking for a place with a nice Rotemburo around Tokyo. I came across this room at Hilton. In retrospect, I could have travelled outside of Tokyo, staying in a Ryokan with dinner and it may still end up cheaper than staying in this hotel. The cost is high, but the convenience of getting there, the time saved, and once in the lifetime experience made it all worth it.
No doubt this room is comfortable. The room is spacious. I could have hosted a party of six people easily in this room. There is a jacuzzi outside on the terrace looking out to the rainbow bridge over the sea. I could see Fuji-san from the terrace when I arrived before sunset.
The king bed is large and comfortable. There is a living room area with a comfortable sofa and a Nespresso machine with a variety of coffee plus some.
The highlight has to be the terrace. We took the outside bath at night. It was a cold winter night with clear night stars. We could see the terrace of another room below us if we want to.
The swimming pool was nice. I did not choose the package which include the pool so we had to pay extra. It would have been worthed if we could spend more time there. We only have an hour before our dinner at the sushi restaurant on site so we had to rush through the whole thing.
The view from the hot tub/big rotemburo outside of the swimming pool is spectacular. We can see Tokyo Tower and the rainbow bridge from the bathing area. It was cold during our stay. The steam drifting up from the hot bath makes the atmosphere even more romantic. Unfortunately, it has to be shared and you have to wear a swimsuit unless you don’t mind other people watching or if there is no one around then it would be a great spot to make out with your loved one.
The hotel is right next to Daiba station on Yurikamome line. The area is good for a dating spot, with lots of shopping centres, with lots of good restaurants around. I recommend skipping breakfast at the hotel and going to Egg’n things or Bills instead. When we were staying the main restaurant with the new view was full. We did not have time to wait so went to the breakfast which was served in the banquet room. The room doesn’t have any view so it was disappointing. The breakfast was a very standard affair.
The view and the jacuzzi at the terrace are unique, and distinguishable for this hotel. Some of you might recognise the view from a specific type of movie. The room itself is large and nice but nothing unique.
The price is high, because of the location and the brand. We had a good stay and it was memorable. I wouldn’t want to or be able to effort to stay in this room more than one night a year. It has to be a special occasion, or you have a lot to spend without thinking twice.
Final Thoughts - Recommend, may repeat
