[Hotel] InterContinental Tokyo Bay

by - September 16, 2019

I am not picky when it comes to flying, as I can fly on any airline (no loyalty to just one company) and have no qualms about budget airlines either. However, J and I like our sleep and comfort, so we usually opt for hotels over Airbnb whenever we travel. I have nothing against Airbnb, it's just not my personal preference. I have stayed in two Airbnb homes in the past, so I do have some experience with it. We opted to stay at an Airbnb in both London and Iceland. The main reason why we chose Airbnb for those two cities was that the hotels were ridiculously overpriced at the time. There was no way I could justify paying $200-$250 a night for a 2 stars hotel (during non-peak seasons too).

Fortunately, not every single city we visit is that ridiculous in terms of pricing for hotels. On our last visit to Tokyo, we opted to stay at the InterContinental Tokyo Bay. Part of IHG, it's a 5-star hotel in the heart of Tokyo's dynamic bay area that overlooks Odaiba. We opted for this hotel due to its proximity, brand recognition, and member's program. I did get asked this question a couple of times in my DMs when I did my stories, so to answer the question, this hotel was not complimentary or sponsored :) 

J and I arrived around 4 pm from Osaka in April 2018, and the check-in process was relatively fast and easy. We were then escorted to our room by the bellhop.

 Our room was the 2 Twin Bed Club Superior With Bay View on the 22nd floor. We spent the last two nights in Japan at the InterContinental Tokyo Bay, and it was ¥30,685 ($370.24) CAD a night. As you can see in the picture, the window offers a really nice view of the Rainbow Bridge in Odaiba.


 InterContinental Tokyo Bay also offers a shuttle bus service that commutes to/from the hotel to Hamamatsucho station and Shinagawa station. The shuttle schedule was showcased near the front of the reception desk.

We didn't really spend a lot of the time in the day in the hotel, as we like to make the most of our trip exploring. However, the interactions that we did have with the staff members at the hotel were polite and lovely.

Neatly tucked in a wooden box contained some of the toiletries including razors, toothbrushes, shampoo, shower cap, hairbrush, knitting kit, cotton pads, and q-tips.

Overall, we had a great stay at the InterContinental Tokyo Bay and would not hesitate to return. Service was nothing short of amazing.
