When looking for a hotel in a big city, hotel choices can be daunting. The task is made even more difficult when taking an international trip. For example. I can decide on a hotel in Manhattan pretty easily since I know the neighborhoods and transit system.
However, looking at a totally foreign city is more difficult, particularly if there are literally hundreds of hotels to choose from.
I could spend hour upon hour looking for hotels on TripAdvisor, but I’m going to do the same thing I did when looking for a hotel room in Munich. Ask our readers.
What’s your favorite hotel in Tokyo and Osaka? FWIW, we’ve only stayed in Tokyo twice. Once we stayed at the Westin and the other time we stayed at a Japanese brand I can’t remember that I booked on Expedia.
Our only time in Osaka, we stayed at a hotel we could book with IHG points. It was pretty but I can’t remember much else. All of these experiences are from a while ago, so more updated information is appreciated.
While we’d probably have enough points to swing a stay at the Park Hyatt or Andaz, but are they really the best places to stay in Tokyo? What about Marriott, IHG or Hilton hotels? Maybe there’s every a great value hotel not bookable with points but it a great place to stay.
In Tokyo, we’re landing at Haneda Airport, so a hotel that’s easily accessible by public transport is preferred. We don’t need it to be too fancy as this is the hotel where we are going to crash and get used to the time zone change for a few days.
In Osaka, we’d like a hotel that is not too far from Universal Studios since we’re going to visit the park for the first time and get to see the new Nintendo land. We’d also like to be able to get easily into the city as well as back to ITM airport for our flight home.
