The only proper luxury hotel at Shin-Osaka, this fine hotel is great for travellers who intend to use the shinkansen to explore central Japan. Rooms are relatively spacious by Japanese hotel standards - fantastic for families travelling with children.
If you’re willing to pay a little more for a hotel that’s right next to a major train station, and has decently-sized rooms with good views, look no further than the Courtyard by Marriott Shin-Osaka Station. If you’ve stayed at this international hotel chain, you’ll know what to expect.
The clean, comfortable, and moder rooms are pretty spacious by Japanese standards. Being located on the 14th to 18th floors of a tall building doesn’t hurt, as you get some fine views from the rooms. If you’re travelling with young children, you can request a cot or two for them. This isn’t particularly common at most Japanese hotels.
Another plus point is the on-site fitness centre -– hotel gyms are a rarity in Japan. The breakfast buffet has a decent selection of food; and the on-site teppanyaki restaurant is a pretty good dinner option if you’ve just arrived and have no energy to go hunting for food in the immediate area!
If you’re travelling with a JR Pass, Courtyard by Marriott is a great choice. Day trips to Hiroshima or Kyoto are made extremely easy by hopping on the bullet train from Shin-Osaka Station, which is just a 4-minute walk from this hotel. Universal Studios Japan is also just 15 minutes away by train, so it’s pretty convenient if you’re visiting the theme park but don’t necessarily need to be in a hotel right in the Osaka Bay area.
If you want to be very near all the action and attractions downtown, Courtyard by Marriott isn’t necessarily the best choice. The immediate area around the hotel and this station isn’t particularly interesting. But, it is a great base for exploring areas outside of Osaka such as Kyoto or Kobe, or if you just need an overnight stay near this station before departing the next day.
