How much did this cost?

95,000 x 2 nights = 190,000 Hilton points

We accrued these points from a combination of sign up bonuses and work stays. The bonuses came from the Hilton Surpass card* ($75 AF) and the Hilton Honors card* (no AF). Currently if you sign up for these cards, you can earn up to 175,000 Hilton points and a free weekend night on your first anniversary.  If you combine the points with your significant other, which we did, then you would have at least 350,000 points + 2 free weekend nights.  Amex only allows you to receive the bonus only once in a lifetime so it’s best to apply when the bonuses are high, which is now.

How much would this have cost if we paid cash?

Had we paid for these rooms, it would have cost us $1,960.



The morning after our failed Akhibara trip and so-so ramen night, we had breakfast at the hotel. Since my road-warrior wife has Diamond status (qualified after staying 60 nights), we could either have breakfast in the restaurant downstairs or in the executive lounge. We chose the latter.  

The executive lounge is on the 37th floor.  There are two rooms that offer different views.

There was a table of fresh breads, butter, pastries, and donuts.

There were cold cuts, cheeses, and pickles.

Of course there was the typical bacon and sausage option.

Cereal, salads, and a chef there to cook eggs to order.

We then made the trip up to Akhibara to buy a gift for QL’s little brother, leaving the hotel enough time to move our luggage and switch rooms. When we returned to the hotel, our bags and other belongings had been moved to the new room. The junior suite was nice, but it was not as spacious as the suite at the Andaz Tokyo.  I also didn’t like the fact that the mini-bar was not complimentary.

The seating area was nice, but we didn’t spend too much time in the room to have it make that much of a difference.

Before dinner, we went downstairs and spent about an hour at the pool and spa.

There were plenty of lockers, and each one contained a robe for you to wear as the facilities were nude.

There are showers outside you could rinse off before going into the bath area, but there are also washing areas inside the bath area to wash up before getting in a tub.

There are four tubs and a sauna, which was incredibly hot. I usually like saunas, but I could barely stay in this one for five minutes.

Afterward there was a seating area to relax or read. I could have stayed for another hour if QL wasn’t in a hurry to leave.

That night, for our last dinner in Japan, we wanted to try Wagyu beef and went to a restaurant called Wagyu Ginza. The restaurant is located on the 7th floor of an office building.

I called ahead for a 830p reservation, but when we arrived we were the only customers there!

We ordered some sirloin and tenderloin, and we split a bibimbap.

The waiter brought out a few salt options to eat the steak with. He also cooked the tenderloin at the table.

The steak did melt in your mouth, and it makes sense given how much fat is in the meat. It was good, but I prefer a much larger prime steak for the same price. All in, the bill was ~$140 (we just had water).

We walked home and saw some pretty neat buildings at night.

The next morning we grabbed a super early breakfast and left Japan for Singapore.
