For my first night in Tokyo on my Winter 2023 trip to Japan, I spent a night at the Tokyo Marriott Hotel. I was looking for a hotel that was relatively easy to access from Tokyo Haneda, as well as one that offered decent value for a short stay.
My expectations going into my stay weren’t very high, especially when compared to some of Tokyo’s finer hotels. Nevertheless, I was looking forward to beginning my tour of the city, which began in Shinagawa City.
Tokyo Marriott Hotel – Booking
I booked my stay under a favourable industry rate, which was another reason why I opted to stay here on my first night.
Regular cash rates at the Tokyo Marriott Hotel fall at around ¥40,000 ($400 CAD), dipping to ¥35,000 ($350 CAD) in periods of lower demand and rising to around ¥48,000 ($480 CAD) when it gets busy.
A booking made with Marriott Bonvoy points will cost 48,000–63,000 points per night, with an average of around 52,000 points. This puts it just above the 50,000-point threshold for using a topped-up 35,000-point Free Night Award.
You won’t necessarily get great value out of a points redemption at the Tokyo Marriott Hotel. With our current valuation of Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.9 cents per point, you’ll likely get around the same value.
It’s likely best to hang on to your points for a stay for which you can get outsized value, and perhaps booking with a corporate rate that you might have access to instead.
