Yes they do.It used to be a full breakfast but I believe a month ago it was changed to a continental.I dont think you will have problems getting your 3 year old in.

Update report

Just back from Hilton Narita on a reward stay. Got the breakfast coupon upon check in. The coupon clearly stated for continetal breakfast only, or pay up for full breakfast. There is separate section in the dinning room for continental breakfast. The breakfast consist selection of bread/pastry, cereal, drink, and fruit. I think the selection is not bad at all.

Hilton Narita now "up charging" for full breakfast buffet for golds?

All,

It's been commonly known that the Hilton Narita gives full access to their buffet with gold "continental" breakfast certificate.

My friend just stayed there last week and, as a gold, told him that he'd have to pay $12 if he wanted access to the full buffet. Otherwise, continental was free.

Anyone know if this is changing or have experienced this?

That's always been the stated policy and what you are told when you are given your breakfast coupons. But my experience is that when you get to the restaurant, they tell you that you can go for the full deal.

Been several months since I've been there however, and I suppose they could have tightened things up a bit.

Did they tell your friend this at the Front Desk, or were they advised this when they actually presented the coupon at the restaurant?

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't know there was another thread on it already. It looks like it changed sometime in May, so I got the tail end of it when I was there in April.

I'd say that the breakfast was worth $12. Considering I paid nearly $20 for a sandwich, fries and drink (thank heavens work paid for it ) at their coffee shop and their pasta buffet was $35, it's a decent deal.

Though you could always take the free shuttle into Narita and just go to McDonalds or a plethora of other good restaurants for something cheap.

The change of this regulation is not only for G members but also for D members. When I satyed at Hilton Narita (06/23/05), I had a mixed sandwich in my room and I paid 1,850JPY for it. So extra 1,270JPY is worth for full breakfast.

Now at Hilton Narita, high speed wired internet is available in all rooms. ( 1,760JPY/day) It is actually not cheap, but more convenient. ^

The internet worked well, but it was in a pretty bad place in the room. It would have been nice to have them on or near the desks rather than by the TV.

1760 yen was better than the 18 euros I paid in Germany, which was about $24 a day then Cheaper to do that and use Skype to call home though than paying roaming.

The Continental breakfast has lots of offerings and is a great deal- the full breakfast for US$12 more is still a wonderful bargain and deal , in Japan. You could stay and eat for two hours if you wished, and there is a huge array of American, Continental and Asian food to be had. By far the best meal deal at Hilton Narita.

And IMO, DO avoid the highly overpriced Japanese restaurant ("Matsukaze") on the next floor up - if there is such a thing as the epitome of mediocrity, this is it, in food and service, and it is outrageously expensive for what you get. I'd much rather shuttle to Narita town, or even the airport, and eat out.

An additional question and comment:
What is the walk-up price of the full buffet? i.e. how much discount does one get from the free continental breakfast coupon?

The comment is that I had the full breakfast as a gold a few months ago (so never looked at what it would have cost with real money). Buffet was fine, but nothing to rave about as some seem to do. Of course, I tend to eat little in the morning, so the "eat all you want for as long as you want" aspect does not do very much for me.

I'm of like mind. I'm not a big morning eater, so the Continental breakfast does it for me.

Don't know if I would really go as far as that (eating at the airport, and I don't mean distance). Narita town, of course, is a go!

Breakfast was in the neighborhood of $23 or $26 (can't remember which) for the full buffet. That's what one of the ladies that traveled with us paid because she didn't take advantage of CTCH.

They don't check

The last time I was there, they didn't even ask for the upgrade. When I flashed the continental breakfast coupon, I was instructed to use whole buffet.

It's a pretty good buffet. If you are staying in or around Narita it might be worth it. If you are getting on a plane, eat at airport. If you are heading into town, skip breakfast and have cheap sushi in town. (At least that's what I would do).
