The Hilton Nagoya hotel is an easy 15 minute walk, 5 minute taxi/shuttle bus ride from the main train station. The hotel shuttle runs only in the morning and late afternoon. If you choose to walk, you can cover several blocks of it protected from the elements in the underground mall running along Sakura-dori. The front desk staff here are pleasant, efficient and helpful. No lines for check-in or out, either. I got some excellent restaurant recommendations from them, accompanied by easy to follow, accurate directions too. The guest rooms are very similar to those at the Shinjuku Hilton, if you've been there. They are medium size, well designed, well equipped and quite comfortable. (As a diamond member i was not upgraded to a larger room or an executive floor room, but I was given executive lounge privileges.) The rooms have cables for Internet, but if you need wireless you will have to request a wireless router for your room. They are in limited supply, so ask immediately upon making your reservation or at check-in. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are quiet and the heating/ventilation/air conditioning works flawlessly, all making for a very good night's sleep. The executive lounge has a moderate supply of snacks and drinks. It is a comfortable place to relax during the day, but gets a little crowded and busy in the evening. I was given the option of taking breakfast in the second floor restaurant. The buffet there is terrific, with Japanese/Chinese/Western dishes, all prepared to a very high standard. There are also a lot of fresh fruits and fruit juices available. The greatest strength of the Nagoya Hilton is its staff. Without exception, I found them to be enthusiastic, pleasant, helpful, well-informed and personable. The front desk manager greeted me upon check-in and made contact with me several times during my staff to make sure everything was going well. This Hilton hotel should serve as a model for training the staff at other Hiltons in Japan. In sum, I found the Nagoya Hilton to be an enjoyable place to stay. I will definitely go back.
