Location

The Conrad Tokyo occupies floors 28-37 of the Tokyo Shiodome building located in the Shimbashi business district. It’s conveniently located by the Shiodome station where you can access New Transit, Yurikamome line and Toei subway line.

Pro tip: If you’re coming from Tokyo Narita you can book a limo bus for ¥3,100. The Conrad has information available on their website here.

Room Details

I originally booked a King Room with City View, but was upgraded to a King Room with City View on the Executive Floor thanks to my Hilton Diamond Status. It wasn’t the suite upgrade I was looking for, but welcome nonetheless.

The room was beautiful! It featured a super comfortable king sized bed and cherry blossom paintings on the headboard. The lighting and shades were controlled electronically using a panel beside the bed.

Waiting on the bed were the Conrad Tokyo signature rubber duck and teddy bear keyring. Kawaii!

My Hilton Diamond Welcome amenity consisted of some chocolates and hard candies.

The bathroom was huge. It had a bathtub, separate shower with excellent water pressure and a Toto washlet. What’s a Toto washlet you ask?  It’s the ultimate toilet. Its features include a bidet with adjustable cleaning modes, electric seat heating with adjustable temperature, automatically opening and closing lid, automatic flush and a built in air purifier and deodorizer.

Breakfast

I decided to have breakfast at Cerise one morning, which is the Conrad Tokyo’s all-day casual dining restaurant. The breakfast menu can be found here.

I ordered the Protein Preference egg white omelet with ham, tomato, onion, bell pepper, mushrooms and herbs. It was quite tasty.

I then wandered over to peruse the buffet. At this point I lost all self control and picked up an almond croissant and waffle with syrup. Giraffes eat up to 75 pounds (34 kilograms) of food per day so this is all part of my diet.

The seating area was full at Cerise when I arrived so the staff kindly directed me to sit in the China Blue restaurant. The restaurant has fantastic panoramic views of Tokyo Bay so I didn’t mind the change.

Executive Lounge

The Executive Lounge is located on the 37th floor of the hotel. It has sweeping views of Tokyo Bay and the Hamarikyu Gardens. The lounge serves complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, snacks and evening cocktails. The Executive Lounge also offers private check-in and check-out, concierge services and a range of business services.

I had access since I was staying in an executive room. Even if I were in my original standard room I’d have access thanks to my Hilton Diamond status.

The food and beverage offering at night was fairly impressive. I’ll let the photos do most of the talking here.

Nice selection of hard liquor if you fancy a cocktail
Japanese gin and whisky
Lorimer Cabernet Merlot and Shiraz
Assortment of white and sparkling wine
Beef and Potatoes
Selection of cured meats, cheese and olives
Vegetables and dips
Chips

Overall Verdict

First Class Giraffe Approved

If you’re in Tokyo for business or pleasure the Conrad Tokyo is an excellent choice.
