What To Know
- More than 1,000 weddings are held here each year, so it can get very busy in Tokyo’s main wedding seasons (May and June, September and October)
- You'll need to take a 15-minute train ride on the Yurikamome Line to connect to Shimbashi Station; from there most of Tokyo's main sights are at least 30 minutes away
- Children 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult at the spa
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
Designed to evoke a luxury cruise ship, the cavernous main lobby makes a striking first impression with its grand spiral staircase, marble pillars and polished wood floors. It’s a popular backdrop for wedding photos, and Hilton Tokyo Odaiba knows a thing or two about weddings, as it plays host to more than 1,000 every year. Sweeping hallways lead to the guestrooms, which are less grandiose — simple off-white and cream walls, conservative carpeting. Potted palms and olive trees dot the property and add a resort feel.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms are generously apportioned by Tokyo standards (starting at 344 square feet), and design-wise they give off more of a tranquil beach resort feel than an urban hotel vibe: White, cream and gray tones combine with light wood furniture. All rooms come with a wall-mounted 32-inch flat-screen TV, and each room has its own balcony, for taking in the views with a bit of bay breeze.
The hotel’s 10 restaurants range from Taronga, an Australian eatery with a selection of 30 wines from Down Under, to Veranda, a posh champagne bar with a terrace overlooking the bay. The three Japanese restaurants include a 10-seater tempura dining spot with views of a small Japanese garden and a traditional teppanyaki grill; all three have counter seats from which you can watch the chefs at work. The breakfast buffet includes Japanese and continental options served with panoramic views across central Tokyo. There’s a small spa (Spazen), a gym and a pool, and also two chapels to cater to the couples who flock to Hilton Tokyo Odaiba throughout the year to wed on the waterfront.
In the Area
The Odaiba area is primarily about fun. For high-tech entertainment the Joypolis Amusement Arcade features the latest video games and virtual reality machines, while the slick National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation is a wonderfully hands-on place for kids of all ages to learn more about science. Want something more traditional? Oedo Onsen Monogatari is a theme park combining indoor and outdoor hot spring baths with spa treatments in a mock Edo-era town. Shopping options include the Aqua City, Decks Tokyo Beach and Venus Fort malls.
How to Get There
Just wanted to thank the staff for a memorable stay here. Hotel is nice and clean with very friendly staff willing to help.
We had some issues one night and the manager made sure that it was resolved to our satisfaction. Breakfast was very impressive also.
Very nice place. This hotel little bit far from downtown. If you traveling with family I will recommend you this hotel. We had a beautiful sea view from room. The price is same as downtown hotels but much bigger room. Clean and comfy stuff's are very helpful. Very convenient walk from MRT station.
Overall this is a very nice property, however it is not 5 star. We arrived around 5:30 pm and our room was not ready. After waiting around 45 minutes we were given our keys and told we would have complementary WiFi due to our delay. However as Hilton Honors members we had free WiFi anyway, so this was not the grand gesture they tried to make it out to be. There was no one to accompany us to our room or give us a layout of the property.
Our room was nice. We were traveling with our two young daughters and had plenty of space. The balcony and view were beautiful. The bathroom was large and well appointed.
The location is a bit far from the major sites, however the train station is very close and convenient. We would take the train to Shimbashi and transfer to hit our favorite spots. It is a quiet area but for a first time visitor it was a bit out of the way.
The hotel is on the water and I enjoyed the jogging path in front of the hotel. There were also a few small beaches that made for beautiful photos.
The spa was beautiful, especially the outdoor hot tub. Given the room rates I thought the price to use the pool facilities were rather pricey.
We utilized the shuttle to Disney and found it very convenient.
The front desk staff was very pleasant, but not the most helpful when asking for directions, dining suggestions, or other tips. They would only recommend their own restaurants.
Solid four star hotel in a nice funky location of manmade island of Odaiba, not quite the full über-luxury experience but very good nevertheless. Review based on a one night stay in November (background of spending 80+ nights per year in different hotels around the globe).
The immediate neighborhood consists of multiple malls, so plenty of do here at least if you are interested in shopping, For eating and drinking purposes also many options nearby. And sights to see too, such as Maritime Museum and Daikanransha (Ferris wheel).
The nearest public transportation - Yurikamome monorail station (Daiba) located basically next door to the hotel, max 100m walk to get there. Rinkai Line metro station maybe 400m away, too. Plenty of taxis waiting right at the front door. So quite convenient to get to other parts of the city.
Taxi ride from Haneda airport took perhaps 15 minutes.
Got a room at 8th floor, it was rather spacious with a small balcony. Quite relaxing décor, nothing ultra-modern but not outdated either. The room was very clean with no stains or signs of usage anywhere.
Two bottles of water received as complimentary.
Very quiet with no noise from the outdoor or other rooms.
Unfortunately didn’t have time to have breakfast so no comment there.
Fast & friendly check-in & out.
Would I return there?
Yes I would, a good hotel in an interesting location
This hotel has great amenities all around it, with two different shopping centers, lots of restaurants, and nice views of the bay. There are nice walking trails nearby, including an easy walk to the beach which is very peaceful in the morning. Taxi drivers didn't have any problems finding this hotel, and it's also right on the Metro.
