Another loophole (I think) in the Hhonors system. Bargain of the century – upgraded to a spacious Junior Suite for only 4000 yen plus 8000 Hhonors points! And as a Diamond Hhonors member that includes a drink at the bar and full buffet breakfast.
The gym/pool/spa area is excellent – but the service lacks every so slightly as many staff assume I am a flight attendant (there are many staying here) and perhaps their benefits are reduced. I happen to speak fluent Japanese and when I do, expected service returns.
At 6am the buffet breakfast opens and there is a rush of guests queuing to get as much as they can before they board their bus to to the airport.
