Room 2925 is a Jnr Suite which is a triple + upgrade from the 40,000 Diamond Reward points booking that usually gives you a standard Queen City View room. A pleasing although the room is surprisingly sparse; I am guessing this is just Japanese simplicity.
The receptionist at check-in is not sure whether Diamond members can eat the full buffet breakfast at St George’s Bar and suggests I enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast in the Executive Lounge. But I keep my composure and after entering my suite dial concierge and re-ask and they profusely apologize stating of course as a Diamond Member I can enjoy breakfast in the main restaurant. Ten minutes later the chief concierge knocks on my door, bows deeply, and presents my breakfast voucher.
Luckily I held to my guns as the Executive lounge was a real mess – people everywhere, food haphazardly placed on bench-tops; after a quick Asahi Beer, I am out and to the gym.
The gym is state of the art. Excellent facilities with a tennis court, indoor pool, and über relaxing ‘ofuro’ Japanese bath, spa, and sauna. Heaven.
Breakfast is Hilton standard – excellent and plentiful, served by smiling, ‘can-do’ staff. It’s always a pleasure dining at a Hilton!
After dropping my Express check-out envelope into the box, I catch the ‘on-time’ 8.32am shuttle to Shinjuku station.
