I had a one night stopover hotel two weeks ago. Service was very efficient and friendly. Our room had two extra large twin beds. Though a bit small, it was more than adequate for a one night stopover.

The health club facilities are fine. There's a nice swimming pool. There's also a traditional Japanese bath in the locker room. Health club access is free for golds.

As a gold, I think they put us on a high floor. We had a runway view room. It was neat seeing those 747s land in the morning.

Also as a gold, the reception gave us coupons for continental breakfast. In the morning at the restaurant, they told us we could have anything at the buffet, including the hot items.

Overall, the Narita Hilton is definitely one of the best ways to use 10,000 HH points. Last year, I used HH points to stay at 3 Scandic hotels. That was also a great way to use HH points.

You'll get a credit for the stay, even thought it was an award. Hilton differs from Starwood in this regard. It is a nice help when we are chasing status renewal.

Overnighting in Narita: Can awards be cancelled?

In mid December I will be overnighting in Narita, Japan as my connecting flight is on the next morning, 20 hours after arriving from Chicago.

The Hilton Narita is available for award reservation, but I have 2 problems:

(1) My airticket has an X beside NRT (as opposed to an O) which may mean that I am not allowed to leave the airport; will find out only on the day itself at the immigration counter. In the event that I cannot leave the airport, is it possible to cancel the award reservation at the last minute (4pm) and reimburse the points? Any fees?

(2) I am short of 2000 points currently which I will make up for by early December. Could I make an award reservation now and claim the award voucher later when I have the extra 2000 points needed? I could technically transfer AA miles or purchase the points for $25 but I am trying to avoid that.

I would appreciate any advice and thought.
Thank you very much.

(1) If you have an overnight layover, you will be able to leave the airport. There are no hotels airside, what does the airline expect you to do? Besides, it's not the airline that determines whether you can or cannot leave the airport - that's an immigration issue.

However, if you need to cancel, yes, you can cancel by the deadline and not have hour credit card charged. The award is a spearate matter - if you don't redeem (which is by itself different from the reservation), you can always redeposit. The point I am making is the reservation and the award are 2 separate things.

(2) Again, award reservations and award certificates are separate. Yes you can make an award reservation ahead of time and issue the certificate only when you have the miles or close to the date of arrival.

Thank you, it was done without a hitch. I now have an award reservation and once I obtain the 10000 points I simply have to call in and request a voucher.

It appears that I would also be able to leave NRT, but may eventually incur arrival/departure taxes or fees. Still good! ^

I've never had troubles leaving the airport at NRT for an overnight at the Hilton (also using 10k points, a serious bargain.) Last time I was flying SJC - NRT and connecting next day to CO NRT - GUM and on to YAP and TKK. On the return, we were able to secure seats in the J cabin NRT - SJC the same day, so I cancelled the booking (within the time allowed on my booking, which I believe was 6PM date of arrival,) and I merely rescheduled the 10k stay when we used the Scandic in Brussels.

While at the hotel, we used the complimentary shuttle bus into town... a walk up Ometesando to the Naritasan Shinshoji temple complex is relaxing, and there are several restaurants plus a pub (owned by some VS crew, I believe) caled "Barge Inn." We also used the breakfast chits - presumably good for a Continental breakfast - for a full-on brekkies with huge variety.

NRT Immigration can have long-ish queues, but if you have a USA passport, there's no difficulty, and they will often not ask anything, merely stamp a 3-month visa into your passport.

The bus schedule is great. Got a 1 night stay at 10k! Sweet. It'll be fun poking around Narita for a day.

Based on the room map on the door, I believe the rooms that face inward on the horseshoe are larger than the rooms that face outward from the horseshoe.

Will be there next month - one-night. I know there is a shuttle to the hotel and one from the hotel to Narita City. Anyone have any idea how much a taxi would cost from NRT to the hotel and from the hotel to Jusco? Just in case. Thanks.

Taxis are expensive-1600 yen from Naritasan temple to Aeon shopping centre.
Take the free shuttle to Narita town-there is another Jusco near the dropoff point-you pass it in the bus on your left.There is also a new and stylish supermarket across the rod from the dropoff point.
For a meal go up through the train station to the other side of the railway and their are a large number of restaurants to choose from-most are quite reasonable.Able to get suikiyaki for 1100 yen-but look in side streets for this.

Thanks for the info. ^ Reason I mention using the taxi is if I miss the bus from/to the airport/town. First time staying in Narita in, oh, about 10 years. Always go into Tokyo. I like to shop in department store food courts and pick up sashimi, tempura, yakitori, unagi and musubi and wash it down with a couple of bottles of Asahi Super Dry in the room.

Hilton Narita: upgrade chances for silver?

I booked a deluxe queen plus room at the Hilton Narita in Tokyo (1 night) in April. I asked about upgrades on the reservation line and they said the hotel handles that.

Do I have any chance of an upgrade with just silver? I guess it's better than not having it, but realistically?

I doubt it. Hilton Narita's rooms arent great and has a hard line over upgrades, early check-in, late check-out.

Alrighty.

It's only for one night (gotta xfer between NRT and HND), and the pics I've seen look like it's fairly nice overall.
