With a prime location in the heart of Tokyo’s business district, the 37-floor InterContinental has 844 guestrooms, as well as its own shopping center, pastry shop, wedding chapel, swimming pool and even a medical clinic. Its restaurants include the two-Michelin-starred Pierre Gagnaire, plus eateries dedicated to sushi, steak and Japanese and Chinese fare. The guestrooms are minimalist and modern, with pops of gold, red and violet, and local details like Japanese silk throw pillows. Many feature dramatic city views that include the striking Tokyo Tower. After a day of sensory overload amid Tokyo’s hustle and bustle, guests can cap off an evening with a glass of bubbly at the Champagne Bar.
In the Area
This central hotel is convenient to the Akasaka, Kasumigaseki and Roppongi neighborhoods, as well as to Japan’s Imperial Palace, home to the country’s royal family, surrounded by moats and gardens. To experience the wild contrasts that make Tokyo so unique, visit the intense Robot Restaurant (a surreal futuristic Shinjuku cabaret) or the Tsukiji Fish Market (My Tokyo Guide offers walking tours); a visit to the serene Meiji Jingu shrine and gardens will provide some much needed contact with nature.
How to Get There
Arrived early on a red-eye and the hotel let me use their excellent gym facilities to shower and change for a morning meeting. Came back and checked in later in the afternoon.
Hotel room was decent sized. Though I have stayed here a number of times and they do have smaller rooms and it can be quite hit and miss what room you’ll end up with.
Overall a really good hotel, great location and easy to get to and from the airport with a shuttle bus to both Haneda and Narita.
I'm sorry, but this is far away from a real 5 star hotel and also for its price and its brand.
It's hard to write about a hotel that you return after a good experience and also because you chose it considering i am a high level loyalty member.
The level of disappointment made me write just after I arrive on the hotel where I am now .
The room looks old, outdated and they have curtains on the shower, wich has together with a bathtub wich I consider very dangerous for older people...
The bathroom is so tiny that you can't use it without closing its door ... and had to beg
I arrived at the hotel at midnight.However, reception staffs give me a lot of smiles. It make me feel safe. The hotel was full booked,so no grade-up service. The reception staff offer the breakfast to me at check-in. It is very quick without stress. Good hospitality.
ANA Intercontinental hotel, I have stayed in this hotel on several occasions in all my business trip to Tokyo, Japan. The staff are all very competent and sensitive to your needs. The breakfast is really great. Location is good because easy to move around with- the place i would come back to for my business trip all the time. The staff are very competent and the venue location is good.
Located within a few steps from several train stations and right in the heart of Akasaka, the ANA Intercontinental is highly recommended for those who wish to explore Tokyo via public transportation and on foot. It is also close to several shrines and a short walk from the Tokyo Tower. The Airport Limousine also stops here so it’s convenient for tourists who wish to take the bus to and from their respective airports (Haneda or Narita).
The hotel lobby is very elegant and unsurprisingly reflective of its 5-star stature; unfortunately, our room was a total contradiction. It was small, cramped, and the bathroom was just HIDEOUS: like something out of a motel stuck in the 1970s. It was dingy, the mirror was stained, the bathtub was grimy, and the toilet was antiquated. Our room was practically screaming for an update.
I was also very disappointed to learn that they had assigned me a room with two twin beds, regardless of the fact that I had stated that there would be three room occupants when I made the reservation. Where did they expect my 18-year old son to sleep? On the floor? Well, in order to avoid this mishap, they made me shell out an additional $100 for a rollaway bed.
Gripes aside, I have to say that the staff were very attentive, friendly, and accommodating. Breakfast was also excellent: a buffet that showcased plenty of choices from both Western and Asian cuisine.
Sadly though, I don’t think a good breakfast offering and friendly staff would be enough to convince me or members of my family to return.
