Marriott Miyako Hotel
Osaka

It may come as a surprise that the Marriott Miyako Hotel in Osaka sits within the tallest high-rise building in Japan – standing at a staggering 300 metres! Its vast floor-to-ceiling glass windows rightfully give pride of place to the spectacular cityscape views that stretch out to the horizon as far as the eye can see. Framed by the Ikoma mountains beyond, these really are phenomenal and many venture up to the observation deck at the top of the skyscraper to soak in the best views. But the perk of staying here is that you can enjoy these from the comfort of your own room or suite: bliss.

All the hotel’s 360 rooms are designed in a stylish and current manner, with clean-cut lines and a minimalist feel, so as to not detract from the spacious windows that let in the sweeping panoramic views. This contemporary theme strikes you upon arrival as you walk into the light-filled lobby to check-in at the pristine white desks underneath innovative, almost futuristic, light fittings.

Located in the southeast of central Osaka in the Tennoji district, this property lies away from the hustle and bustle of the popular downtown area, yet still has plenty of dining, shopping and entertainment options close by. And thanks to its position bang opposite the station with the most connections in the city, you can easily hop on a train and be amid the buzz of Dotonbori street with its famous street food scene in a matter of minutes. While the cuisine here really is worth trying, you can also treat yourself to fine dining within the hotel. Home to four restaurants – all of which offer dazzling views – you will be spoilt for choice here. We highly recommend choosing 'Teppanyaki' for the ultimate dining experience in this hotel, during which you will watch the chef cooking on a hotplate in front of you against a backdrop of mesmerising night-time views. During the day, why not take a seat in the open-plan lounge and get a sweet treat in the in-house pastry boutique nearby, before enjoying a cocktail (or two!) at the sleek bar to watch the sun go down?

The only drawback of this hotel is its lack of swimming pool and spa facilities but overall, the property makes for a great option in this city for couples, families and solo travellers alike.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
