Yes, it's definitely a very recent occurrence. I guess I'll just have to keep checking back to see if they open it up again.

I think I see what happened. They're in the process of moving many or all the Tokyo hotels up in category. This hotel was Cat 6 and it's now Cat 7.

Where did you get that info? The hotel's website still shows it as Cat 6, award rooms are available at 25K points (21K off-peak, 29K peak).

I have no idea where you're looking. The Points Calendar clearly shows Category 7 with most nights at 30K (which is also a lie since they don't even offer any standard rooms). Maybe it's different within Japan?

Not the same hotel. Still a category 6.

Thanks. Reading above, it seems I'm not the only one to make this mistake.

For the local experts, how is this hotel as far as being close to subway stations, food/shopping, etc.? For instance how does it compare to the Grand Hyatt?

I prefer location of Grand Hyatt - there's a lot more going on around the hotel both food and shopping wise. But there is the relatively new Toranomon yokocho by Andaz.

eta: sorry just realized this is not the andaz thread. However its 10 mins walking from andaz that I feel the surroundings wouldnt be much different.

Thanks. On a map, they do appear to be close, but since Tokyo is such a dense city, wasnt sure if there would be any major differences between the Andaz and this hotel.

And yes, you are not the first person to get this property confused with the Andaz. When this hotel opens, I wonder how many guests will arrive each day thinking they are checking into the Andaz and vice versa

This seems like a good option to book with cash when there's no points availability at the Hyatt Regency.
I've never stayed at Unbound as a Globalist before. Is it usually breakfast for globalists but no lounge?

I wonder if there will be evening food at the lounge here. They say there are 2 floors dedicated to lounge and co-working space, which seems like a strange allocation of space if that doesn't include dining space as well.

I tried to apply a TSU confirmed suite upgrade award, but Hyatt said you have to wait until Dec. 6 when they open to request the TSU to be applied. Given the limited availability, I'm curious if there will be any suite upgrades available here the first few weeks/months of opening.

Correct, typically breakfast only. I haven't stayed at an Unbound property that had a lounge.

Made a booking for early next year. Rate wasn't too bad, about 1/3 that of the Andaz across the street (34K vs 110K) and about 20% lower than the GHT (45K). The 45K rate for the GHT is not bad at current FX. Given the smallish rooms (and no pool), the GHT may look like a better deal, but curious to try the new place. I actually prefer the Toranomon location to the GHT location, but that probably puts me in the minority here.

Glad to see that hotel prices in Tokyo are starting to moderate (a little, at least!).
