Located next to the Umeda Sky Bldg and a short walk to the Osaka JR Train station and mall of restaurants and shops. A quick taxi ride from the ‘local train’ station. Beautiful lobby with the most courteous and helpful staff. Our room on the 28th floor had an amazing view of the Sky Bldg, rivers and city lights. Everything in the room is controlled via the remote by the bed- room lights, floor lights, window sheers and window curtains. Three different textures and weight of robes in room to choose as well as slippers. Separate shower and super deep tub with big bottles of toiletries. Incredible water pressure and nice hot water. The Spa has separate men’s and women’s public baths as well as steam rooms to relax in. Restaurants had fixed meals and reservations were limited due to the New Year. Breakfast Buffet had a large variety of Japanese breakfast foods but I found hard boiled eggs, bagels, and smoked salmon as well as French toast. Hotel has a shuttle bus service to the JR train station that you can take to get to the food restaurants and produce shops next to the terminal as well as attached mall.

Upscale hotel close to Osaka station (walk is 10 min, 15 min with rolling luggage). Reserved a room with points (standard room) and was still upgraded to the club/executive floor/room (the hotel honored my Marriott status which is always nice). Breakfast was wonderful, served in a pleasant area with a nice view. Lots of selection of both Western and Japanese foods. The staff were exceedingly accommodating and a pleasure to speak with in both 日本語 and English. Please make reservations if you want to enjoy the afternoon tea.
