Conrad Hotels & Resorts is reporting that it’s opened a property in Osaka. The move marks the second opening in Japan; the luxury hotel company has a location in Tokyo as well.
Daniel Welk, vice president of luxury operations, said in a written release that the arrival of Conrad Osaka underscores Conrad Hotels & Resorts commitment to growing the brand’s presence in Japan as well as providing guests with the utmost luxury Osaka has to offer.
The hotel is situated on the 33rd to 40th floors of the Nakonoshima Festival Complex between the Umeda and Namba districts, placing travelers in the middle of authentic Japanese cuisine, night life and tourist attractions – notably the Pokémon Center and Osaka Castle.
Within the hotel are four restaurants and a bar: 40 Sky Bar & Lounge, serving up live music, cocktails and light meals; C:GRILL, which is Osaka’s first crustacean “a la carte” restaurant; atmos dining, a brasserie-style restaurant serving both local and international fare; and Kura – Teppanyaki & Sushi, a "theatrical" dining experience where sushi lovers can enjoy chefs preparing and cooking fresh, seasonal fish.
Conrad Osaka guests can unwind at the Conrad Osaka Spa, where four private treatment rooms await them. There is also a 24-hour fitness center, a 20-meter heated indoor pool and various jogging paths located by the nearby Dotonbori River.
For travelers looking to sightsee, the National Art Museum and Osaka Science Museum occupy two undergrounds floors also within the Nakanoshima. In addition, Conrad Osaka is located close to the National Bunraku Theater, known for its Japanese puppet theatre, the local Kuromon Market, and Shinsekai, Osaka’s “new world” district, where travelers will find more eateries and bars. With Nakanoshima station nearby, visitors can also experience convenient travel to historic cities such as Kyoto and Nara as well as to Universal Studios Japan and spiritual sites like Mount Koya, the center of Shingon Buddhism.
Conrad Osaka, like many of its sister hotels, participates in Hilton Honors, Conrad Concierge and Conrad 1/3/5.
