Hilton Tokyo Odaiba
What We Love
- Top location for families; Odaiba is packed with amusement arcades, theme parks and malls
- Ten highly rated restaurants, including three offering traditional Japanese cuisine (sushi, teppanyaki and tempura)
- The views; Rainbow Tower Rooms in particular offer expansive vistas of Tokyo Bay and the city

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
We recently stayed here for 6 nights and I would happily say this hotel would get 6 stars if I could give it.
Staff were fantastic with a special mention to Sayoko Osada, who made our check in and subsequent stay exemplary, the view across the bay to the skyline of Tokyo was great and at night you could sit and watch it for hours
We have room service on a couple of occasions and it was fast and efficient and the food well prepared
There is an excellent Spa and indoor pool, there is also indoor and outdoor hot-tubs
Transport is very easy as there is monorail station outside the hotel with a direct line to shimbashi station, crossing the rainbow bridge, takes about 15 minutes, and there is a train every 4 minutes..
We had a superb stay and I would happily recommend the hotel
Great location. Great service. About 5-10mins walk to shopping malls. Easy to access from Haneda Airport to this hotel. My family love the hotel and enjoy a lot. For sure will book the same hotel when travel to Tokyo next time.
We were so very impressed with the guest service that we received during our stay. Each staff person went out of their way to make us feel welcome and they made sure that any questions we had were answered. The hotel itself is gorgeous and immaculate. There is dining available on grounds and a cafe'. There is Limo bus service that goes to the airports for a VERY minimal cost. There is a FREE shuttle that takes you to both Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Seas. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. . We had a balcony view of the Rainbow Bridge. There is a currency exchange machine in the lobby area. There is free Wi-Fi and a PC available in the lobby free of charge to use. There is a small fridge in the hotel rooms, complimentary bottled water and a coffee maker. The rail station stops RIGHT AT the hotel! Shibuya and Shinjiko are about 25 minutes away by rail. There is a large shopping/restaurant center - Aqua City located within steps of the hotel. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel and if we were to return to Tokyo, this is the hotel that we would stay at.
We only have a day of stay here but this hotel has already impressed us with what it has to offer. It is conveniently located few steps away from train station, shopping malls, restaurants, and main attractions in Odaiba. The hotel has perfect view to Tokyo Bay and Rainbow Bridge. The staffs are awesome and provide world class services. I am diamond member and has access to the executive lounge and this lounge is one of the best. The room is spacious and clean, the macaroon is tasty and we love them. I am sure I will be back to explore more.
I have been fortunate enough to stay in many top-rated hotels across many cities. But I have to say that, Hilton Tokyo Odaiba tops the list. With spacious and luxurious rooms and the place comes with very hospitable staffs. The view from the room is also amazing with the rainbow bridge and view of the Tokyo city in the horizon. The breakfast there is also great and I would recommend you to have the breakfast outside on the deck! All in all, a great place to stay if you are in Tokay.
