My family of 4 stayed in the Executive Suite for 12 nights in November. We had previously stayed there 3 years old and we were happy that the good things havent changed. The same old world cosy ambience. The fireplace and cosy lobby all decked in Christmas decoration certainly makes this feel like an old friend's lodge. Probably the only luxury hotel in Osaka that is not glitz and glass. And certainly all the whos whos hang out here, as evidenced by the Rolls Royces and the number of Birkins everyday....
The bathrooms were large and luxuriously appointed. We loved the large extra-large king-size beds and the 10 diff kinds of pillows. They even had special pyjamas, bathrobes and slippers for our 2 little girls in their different sizes, which made them feel like princesses,,,,and the service extended to us throughout our stay was always impeccable, friendly and professional from arranging tours, to bullet train advice, restaurant bookings etc. Kudos. In 2009, we felt it was no 1 and this time round, having had the chance to visit some of our other friends in other 5 star hotels, this is still no 1.
And its location is superbly connected via underpass to all the subway, train, JR, shinkashen and shopping malls within the next 1km vicinity so we need not even walk on ground level, esp useful when it is windy and cold.
