Booking

I booked four nights here using my Citi Prestige so I could utilize the fourth night free benefit. I called the Citi concierge and provided by corporate code and my Hyatt account number and they booked the hotel for me. Overall, the total cost was $1301.38 before the fourth night free rebate of $283 which posted to my account two months after our stay.

Getting There

After our stay in Kyoto, we took a quick cab from our Ryokan to Kyoto Station. At Kyoto Station, we purchased two Shinkansen tickets from a kiosk for $129 each. We also stopped at one of the many convenience stores in the station to grab lunch and snacks for the train ride.

Hyatt Regency Tokyo provides a shuttle from Shinjuku station to the hotel, but we had some trouble finding the stop after arriving at the station. The shuttle stop is bus stop #35:

After a quick shuttle ride, we entered the lobby where we checked in.

The Room

Upon entering the room, there was a closet and kitchenette to the left, and the bathroom to the right.

The bathroom featured a sink with a large counter area, a modern Japanese toilet, and a shower over tub.

The room featured a long desk, which was perfect for laying out all our stuff:

On the desk was a note from housekeeping and a small origami:

The main part of the room had a big comfortable bed and a small seating area. There were floor-to-ceiling windows with a beautiful view over Tokyo.

View from our room

I would describe Osaka and Tokyo as dense, urban cities – I was not expecting and was pleasantly surprised by all the greenery!

Bottom Line

The Hyatt Regency Tokyo was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. I would definitely stay again if the price was right.
