You all, I only spent 24 hours in the Conrad Tokyo hotel, but when I tell you that I was obsessed and immediately had to write a review…
Recently I took a solo Japan trip, with 5 days in Tokyo, 4 in Kanazawa and Kyoto, and returned to Tokyo for my final night. I booked an Airbnb for the first leg and thought that it would be fun to try out one of those capsule hotels. I don’t know who I was trying to fool, but I backed out of it and decided to treat myself for my final night in Japan. While looking for nice hotels that I could put my credit card points to use, I found a Points Guy review on the Conrad Tokyo hotel and was sold.
The hotel was so posh, and the art and every minute detail added to the overall effect.
Also, can we talk about the bathroom of my dreams? I spent a lot of time just in awe of the vanity mirror in my room. So much so, that I vow that the first house or apartment I buy, will have to have a bathroom like this.
I originally had plans to have a full night on the town and ended up canceling all of them (except for dinner) and instead relaxed and had a salt bath with a nighttime view of the city.
With one full wall dedicated to a city view, I spent some quality time on the lounge area sipping tea and just taking it all in. Honestly, I don’t know how many times I said “WOW.”
I got upgraded when I checked in, so I had access to a swanky executive lounge for their afternoon tea, cocktail hour, and breakfast. I wasn’t too hungry during tea but went up anyways for the experience and had a very movie-like moment of eating a macaron while looking out of the floor to ceiling windows, because there is no such thing as a bad view in this hotel.
I did take part in their breakfast which was a mix of a buffet and made-to-order items. I had the best lobster omelette and didn’t want to leave, because once again, views. The only thing that would have made this better if, a handsome young man approached me with
I can’t rave enough about the service I got during my short stay. From the moment I stepped off the elevator to check-in it was clear that I would be living luxuriously. For example, while I was checking in, I was offered a pomegranate juice to “make the check in experience more pleasant”. Again, it’s the little details. I casually mentioned that I would be going out to dinner later and before I left, one of the staff that helped me to check in, stopped by my room to drop off some sweets as a welcome gift along with a nice note about enjoying my night out.
I also felt like I didn’t have to lift a finger the entire time, which I guess is what you’re ultimately paying for, but still, amazing.
All, in all, I had an unforgettable stay and I’m currently thinking of ways in which I can end up back at the Conrad Tokyo hotel. Should I start a new project at work that’s related to Japan? Or begin a side hustle by creating a product that I can only manufacture/develop in Tokyo? The possibilities are endless. I’ll keep you updated 😉
