The Conrad Tokyo, located on floors 28 through 37 of a slick Shiodome skyscraper, offers 290 business-friendly digs with red and blue accents, auburn wood and peek-a-boo glass walls between the soaking tubs and bedrooms that spice up the otherwise minimalist decor. All rooms have stunning city or bay views and Sumi-e style cherry blossom patterns on the headboards and carpeting impart a dose of Japanese character. There’s a full-service Mizuki Spa and fitness center on the 29th floor with a sauna and steam, as well as an indoor pool. For delectable eats, there are four restaurants and a lounge to choose from, including the Michelin-starred China Blue that serves meals such as deep-fried minced pork and lotus roots with pineapple sauce.
In the Area
Built-up for business over the last 10 years, Minato ward’s newest neighborhood is sleepy for most touristic endeavors, although the No.1 Tokyo attraction for jet-lagged travelers is nearby: Tsukiji Fish Market. Tuna auctions and endless rows of peculiar creatures provide a heady dive into Japan’s seafood culture; arrive early and after touring, have dine on the freshest sushi you’ll ever have. Other attractions in Shiodome’s skyscraper city include the free Advertising Museum Tokyo, the faithfully recreated Old Shinbashi Railway Station and Hama-rikyu Garden, a leafy Edo Period respite with a picturesque teahouse in the middle of a pond.
How to Get There
Getting away for long weekend is great and what made it really great was the special attention of the staff at Conrad Tokyo.
My wife and I were celebrating our anniversivery in this special city and the arrangements made by the concierge and all of the staff at Conrad Tokyo made it an a memorable and enjoyable trip.
Special thanks go out to Paweena the Front Office Manager and her team for all the arrangements and wonderful welcome champagne and celebration cake when we arrived.
We have been staying at the Conrad Tokyo for many years now and the service and treatment we get is always welcoming, efficient and always very friendly.
I look forward to coming back again soon to visit this great city and the wonderful service as usual from all the Conrad staff. Its like coming back to a second home!
Thank you all again!
I truly feel this is the best hotel in the world. We have stayed at the Conrad four times over the last two years and each time is the same; amazing welcoming service, well designed room, great food and one of the best pools in Tokyo. Looking forward to my upcoming stay this month. Again, their are lots of amazing hotels I have stayed at in Tokyo, but it is the staff the sets this hotel apart. Just look at what Yuka did for my daughter when we were at dinner on her birthday.
We wanted to stay at the Conrad because of the reviews we had read and we were not disappointed. The hotel is great, location is great, rooms are nice and modern. Exec lounge is fine- didn't go there for breakfast but was there for evening cocktails- one night it was so busy, there was no room. on other nights it was pretty quite.
The thing that stood out however is the great service we received from Izumi. She worked at both the Exec Lounge as well as the front desk. She made sure our stay was over the top. She was very nice to us- researched restaurants, even a recipe and put it on a note and sent to our room. She even built a special bond with our 3 year old daughter that made her want to stop by and see her every day and put a tear in her eye when we were checking out. She should be commended for the extra special service she provided for us. I would stay at the hotel again, just because of the service that was provided by her.
