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
This is a large city-center hotel in a very good location. We stayed in a suite, which was great as it was oriented with windows along the long wall of the living room, with the bed also facing the window, so the views were great. The club lounge was fantastic, with personalized service for evening cocktails and canapes as well as breakfast. We were in a renovated room, which was in great condition. Concierge was very helpful, and front desk was efficient. Really enjoyed our stay.
Incredibly, I stayed at the Intercontinental for one month. It was a beautiful hotel with tremendous staff service.
The facilities at this property were outstanding, especially the gym; however, the pool could do with a face lift.
I found all the restaurants at the Intercontinental to be of a high standard, but as with all Japanese restaurants, the coffee was poor.
As for the rooms, the beds were comfortable and there was a variety of pillows to choose from. The only downside is that the bathrooms could do with a renovation or a good dose of bleach.
Nearby, there are multitude of quality, reasonably priced restaurants. Do not be afraid to head out and explore.
I’d recommend this property to any business travelers bound for Tokyo.
We recently had the most wonderful stay at the Intercontinental ANA Hotel. It is in a great location, is clean and spacious and has lots of interesting restaurants nearby. There are nearby supermarkets, care and laundromat making a family holiday easier. Highly recommend a stay here. Only downside is it costs around $50 AUD per person per entry to the pool.
I booked online for a business trip and added a few days and brought my husband. It was very expensive per night - but I saw this as a treat and an oasis in Tokyo! I booked a deluxe king. We arrived at the hotel to find that we had a choice of either twin beds in non smoking or a king in smoking. We reluctantly chose the king. Ok the place stunk. It was grotty. It was truly the worst hotel experience I have EVER had - and I have stayed in hotels all over the world.
I just arrived Tokyo from a 12hr flight. I checked in, there was a confusion with my room, agent said it was not cleaned yet, the agent called the supervisor and I finally they gave me room 2520. The room at first sight it’s was nice and clean but once I opened the bathroom it smells like sewage, disappointing to have that smell as a first experience of this hotel.
I called the desk and they said they were going to call me in a few. It has been 25minutes and I’m in this room waiting for someone to call.
