Review: Mesm Tokyo, Marriott Autograph Collection

Review: Mesm Tokyo, Marriott Autograph Collection

For my second night in Tokyo, I hopped in a taxi from the Tokyo Marriott Hotel and headed over to Mesm Tokyo, an Autograph Collection hotel. I’d read many positive reviews of the property, and I was keen to maximize my stay before heading over to Osaka for a few nights.

From the moment I pulled up to the hotel, the experience was unique and elevated, and my only regret is not staying here longer.

Mesm Tokyo – Booking

In the months leading up to my trip, I was looking to secure some stays in different parts of Tokyo so I could get a better sense of the city. As I was weighing up the options, I found the Mesm Tokyo available for a Marriott Bonvoy points redemption, and decided to give it a shot.

For my one-night stay, I redeemed 74,000 Bonvoy points for a base-level Chapter 1 room. 

While this certainly wasn’t a cheap stay, it offered good value against the cash rates, which were skewing upwards of ¥85,000 ($850 CAD) due to the Lunar New Year celebrations.

Throughout the year, you can expect to redeem 52,000–75,000 points per night, depending on how busy the hotel is and any concurrent holidays.

Cash rates work out to around ¥48,000–100,000 ($480–1,000 CAD) per night. 

In my case, I felt that I was getting decent value for my redemption, as I netted above our current valuation of Bonvoy points at 0.9 cents per point (CAD). 

Admittedly, I booked my stay about a month prior to arrival, which likely resulted in a higher redemption cost than if I had booked far in advance. Since I was planning on spending most of my time in the hotel as I was working on a 14-hour time difference, I was pleased with the overall value.

If you’re paying cash for your stay at Mesm Tokyo, be sure to get in touch with us about a quote. Mesm Tokyo participates in Marriott Luminous, a preferred partner program, which gives you additional benefits during your stay at no extra cost.
