Arrow Conrad Osaka {JPN}

Couldn't find a post using search, so apologies if this is a duplicate:

I just passed a building with "CONRAD" on the side, so I imagine it will open on time.

It's on Nakanoshima, right in the center of the city and scheduled to open on June 9th.

Not a huge fan of the location to be honest. There just isn't a convenient way to get to the Shin-Osaka Station.
The Crowne Plaza and the Ritz Carlton (to a lesser degree) have the same problem.
It is not the end of the world but if they have similar rates as the IC, then I will most likely chose the iC because of superior location.

Will still try to check it out the next time, though.

According to Google Maps it's 600m from Yodoyabashi Metro Station which in turn is 9 minutes from Shin-Osaka on the Metro Midosuji Line. When I was staying at the Crowne Plaza I walked from Yodoyabashi and thought it was very convenient but YMMV.

In terms of design and room size it looks like they're positioning it at a similar level to Conrad Tokyo, i.e. contender for best Conrad in the entire portfolio - looking forward to this opening!

Booked this property

Hello, sorry if my post isn't like in advance, this is my first time posting on this forum. Though, I do often read the content here, and I believe it to be the most accurate and informing.

I have booked the property for a total of 3 days: June 9, 10, and 11. This is the first weekend of the property being open. I was going to be in Osaka anyway traveling, so I decided to take advantage of the fact this hotel was opening during that timeframe.

I did use rewards to book this hotel, so they do accept certificates, points, and points and cash, for those wondering. I do not really know what to expect, I am a gold member, however, I do not know if I will get upgraded or not.

I have stayed at the Conrad Tokyo and most of the properties in Japan, with Conrad Tokyo being the best property. I do anticipate to enjoy the rooms regardless of the level, considering it starts at 50sm which is quite large for a basic level room.
I will also be staying in the Hilton Osaka and a hostel prior to staying at this property, as I wanted to try the experience of a hostel.

One thing I wanted to put into consideration were the lack of property photos. They are all very generic and dont tell a story well at all. So, I am hoping that more will be released prior to my arrival.

I will try to post a review of my experience there, of the lounge as well if I get that opportunity .

Thanks for the time.

There are some videos and photos online, just need to search them in Japanese words. The whole hotel looks a bit dark due to the dark interiors. But very spacious. Executive room is at 66m2 which is the same size with entry room at Aman Tokyo. The standard suite is at 100m2 but this hotel has only couple of suites.

Any bets on the type of stuffed toy they'll have?
