The Conrad is 65,500 and the FS Marunouchi is 41,500 on the nights I'm looking at. Is the Conrad really that much better to command that premium? For the same money at the FS, one gets a 700sqft room

Interestingly, I don't see anyone recommending the FS. why?

Booking through banks can make a lot of difference.
I never paid more than JPY 30K for Conrad Tokyo.

+1

Recce'd the place last month.

I like a room with a view when I travel and FS Marunouchi is low rise.

Lobby overlooks JR Tokyo Station lines, which should excite train spotters

A lot of us are points/status tarts!

(I know the FS apparently does track stays but the programme is unofficial.)

Why so spendy, 9V-JKL? For 65,500 you can find PLENTY of nice rooms. As StarG eluded to, even half that qualifies.

Not looking to spend that kind of $$ @ a Conrad. It just stunned me when I saw the rate. Will burn some HH points instead

I'll give you 1:10 as I can't think of any Hilton property that's worth it.
