Hilton Tokyo Odaiba
What We Love

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
- Handicap Accessible
- 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
Best Hilton in Tokyo Bay Area. Staff and service is 5 Star, always helpful, courteous, best view of UpperTokyo bay and Rainbow bridge. Transportation is easy to get to 2 min walk to the Monorail which takes you to the train station. We always stay at Hilton Odaiba Tokyo whenever we are in Tokyo.
The hotel has commanding views of Tokyo and we enjoyed them from our balcony in a very comfortable room. Like most of Japan, limited English language TV options but the bathroom was large for Tokyo with bath. The breakfast was a highlight and there is a shopping mall next door with convenience store and alcohol. Note that the station adjacent is not a JR line, so even if you have a rail pass, you will need to buy a separate ticket - but this is way cheaper than a taxi.Close to everything but a more relaxed place than Tokyo central.
This hotel is in Odaiba, on Tokyo Bay a little outside the main line of Tokyo. We loved the rooms they were large, and very spacious. Note the bed may feel a bit on the hard side for Westerners (although we loved it) but this is generally true of all places in Japan. The bathroom was huge with a separate shower and bath. The toilet is all singing all dancing and is an experience on its own.
The overall area is large shopping areas and themed areas (and very new being mostly built on reclaimed land. We really loved having a small balcony and a view over the water to Rainbow bridge, having a balcony also afforded you the ability to open the door and get fresh air into the room (hard to find at our other places we stayed in Tokyo).
Since you are outside of the main rail loop of Tokyo - it is easy to get onto it as there is a monorail line (and station) right outside the Hilton that takes you to Shimbashi Station on the main JR line. (If you have a JR pass it is not valid on the monorail but a ticket only costs approx $3-$4 each way).
The food offerings are superb, we tried the in-house teppanyaki , a bit on the pricey side but the show and food quality was well worth it as a treat.
The lunch buffet is a must do, so much many food offering local and otherwise worth visiting just for the lunch (and the views over the bay).
The guest relations staff were incredibly helpful and nothing was too hard, from working out the best trains to catch to out of the way sites (for us Mt Takeo) to helpful tips on what to see and even down to on forwarding bulky luggage to the next hotel.
There is a nearby Onsen (Odaiba Ōedo-onsen-monogatari) which is worth the visit, more of a theme park than a traditional Onsen with food and drink establishments as well as very clean facilities and baths) - note if you catch the monorail from the Hilton (only 2 stops) the last monorail back to the Hilton leaves at just after midnight, you can easily catch a cab back or its a safe easy 2km stroll - which is what I did.
Plenty to see and visit around the area, and some fear parks and while we didn’t do it this time there are some great bay tours including dinner cruises.
While not in the main part of Tokyo (which in a way is a bonus) would highly recommend it for value for money and location.
Big room, with huge bathroom and facilities, balcony with opening door for fresh air, amazing buffet lunch, location to monorail station, the onsen nearby and if its your thing great shopping.
Hard pressed here to think of any, maybe being a off the main JR loop and having to catch a monorail (they come every 5 mins) will be a problem for others and its not really an old world Japan experience (but Tokyo is like that).
Stayed here for a night, upgraded to room with water view. The room size is big, and newer than the one at Narita airport. The view is really amazing especially during magic hour.
Location is good if you planned for a one day trip at odaiba, there is few shopping mall and the attractions for photos like the gundom, Statue of Liberty, Fuji tv tower. I would stay these are the must visit attractions in Tokyo.
Executive lounge didn’t offer lots option of food but the view is great and you feel very relax sitting outside.
Breakfast is as good as all japan hotels, gym room is nice as well.
I’m really satisfy with the stay here, a big difference compared with the Narita Hilton.
The Hilton Tokyo Odaiba entire staff treated me with the courtesy and attention you expect from a fine hotel. The staff was all so friendly and helpful. No matter what I needed, your staff took care of me and seemed glad to do it. It was like being taken care of by your family -- a family that you actually get along with. In addition to having staff that treated me so well, the room and the amenities were lovely. The breakfast buffet in the Concierge Lounge had tremendous variety and was a lovely place to enjoy cake and tea in the evening. I will also let my travel agent know what superior service you provide your guests. A special 'Thank you' to Ita Ayala, Enda Ayaka, Yu Jiahui, Maharjan, Hiro Funaki, & Fakuda, for your true professionalism and great conversation. Please share this note with your management.
