I want an overnight date with my boyfriend on Valentine's Day, but .... What is your recommended hotel in the suburbs of Osaka?

Because next year's Valentine's Day is Friday, I want to reserve a nice hotel early. Where was the hotel you stayed and was good? I would love to stay at a hotel with great night views.

The top in Osaka

There is also Teikoku Hotel in Osaka. Some people say that Royal Hotel with a long history is the best in Osaka. Marriott Miyako Hotel is on top of Harukasu. But I think Ritz is the best of all luxury hotels. The profoundness and perfection of service of the hotel cannot go wrong. Chinese Restaurant "Komomo" is also recommended. You can enjoy authentic British style afternoon tea at the cafe. It depends on your boyfriend’s budget, but you can definitely spend a memorable night. I didn’t stay in a room with particularly beautiful night views so it would be little different from your case. If you give a priority on night views, Marriott Miyako Hotel also can be one of the choices.

Valentine's Day

If you stay with your boyfriend on Valentine's Day, I recommend The Ritz-Carlton Osaka. Nowadays, the Ritz-Carlton hotels in Roppongi, Kyoto, and also Okinawa, but this is the first hotel in the Japanese market and has some history, and offers the best service and atmosphere.


A luxurious atmosphere

It is a luxury hotel located in Umeda. The hotel will surely make a couple happy. The room looks like the one in a foreign country and you will feel like you are a in a different world. Breakfast buffet is also delicious and a highly satisfying. There is also an espresso machine as well.

First-class

It is a first-class hotel in Osaka. Your girlfriend will be surely happy. It is close from Osaka Station and the room is beautiful. You can also enjoy great night views if you stay in a room on a higher floor. It is expensive, but I think it is good to take the plunge and stay for memorable Valentine’s Day.

Service and atmosphere are very good.

In contrast to Hilton, it has a calm atmosphere of European hotels.
Breakfast was very tasty. Crispy croissant, abundantly made with butter. Cheese and omelette... I want to eat again. Dinner at the hotel is quite expensive so I ate outside.
Winter in Osaka is dry. I wrote in a questionnaire sent after my stay to my e-mail address that I used to register when I stayed that "The room was dry and uncomfortable". Then they politely replied that "We can offer you a humidifier so please let us know when you stay next time."
You can overlook Umekita on upper floors,. Umekita was under construction when I stayed, but it was very beautiful.
However, it costs around 60,000 yen for two person per night with breakfast, but I think it is worth it. How about going to the lounge to see in advance? You can see the atmosphere and think about it.

Convenience and stylish space

It is close to JR Osaka Station, surrounded by the bustling downtown of Osaka. You can easily find a stylish place for going out and dining. It is also very convenient for a fancy Valentine date and shopping, and I am sure you two will love.

Go in luxury if you spend a special day slowly

I think it is the finest hotel. You will be impressed that you can feel hospitality everywhere without being intrusive but casually.
In particular, I recommend the club room on the top floor. There is exclusive lounge for guests staying on upper floors and you can enjoy five different menus for food & drinks from breakfast to bar time.

The great night views.

I recommend Hotel Hankyu International. Although it is expensive, but the beauty of the night views (but please choose a higher floor) and smart services are worth it. It was great to enjoy dinner while overlooking wonderful views with the fine service for French cuisine at the the main dining room. Happy Valentine's Day!

The night views of central Osaka are beautiful

The rooms are on above the 26th floor, so night views can be seen beautifully from the room. Please choose the direction of your preference because views are different between directions. All direction have nice views, but you can see central Osaka if facing south. The rooms are spacious, beautiful and stylish. You can order room service if you want.

The service is good

There is a little distance from Osaka Station, but it is close to a recent topic of Gran Front and you can stay calmly. The hotel interior is gorgeous and the room is also nice. You can enjoy night views of the city if you stay in a room on the higher floor. You can stay comfortably since the hotel staff offers great service.

Treat yourself to stay on the executive floor

It is convenient location near Osaka Station. In particular, the executive floor is on the upper floor, and night views are beautiful. Also guests who stay on the executive floor can use the lounge for free, you can calmly relax there and enjoy some drinks, simple food, cakes and snacks during the cocktail hours. I think it is perfect for a stay on Valentine's Day. You can also have tea, coffee and snacks freely and the scenery is also good during the day. It is really recommended as you can spend relaxingly without hurry.

Peace of mind in Osaka

It is a hotel in a huge shopping mall adjacent to Osaka Station.
It is the most standard hotel that you can rest assured with their services in Osaka.
How about ordering a room service and enjoying night views of Osaka in the room?
It is also good to enjoy night views while dining and drinking at Sky Lounge on the top floor.

A hotel directly connected to the station with great views

This is a hotel in front of the station and has good traffic connections.
Since the rooms are on higher floors, the view from the room is very nice.
The rooms are clean and functional, and I was surprised that equipment such as an electrical beauty and foot bath were equipped as well as a variety of hotel amenities.
Breakfast was also delicious.
I got a good impression from the polite response from the staff at the front desk.
I like the splendid night view from the room and good accessibility to JR.

The location is good and the night views are beautiful

It is close to the JR loop line and accessibility is excellent. The rooms are on above the 30th floor so you can enjoy great night views. The rooms are spacious and you can bring your own food and drinks and put them in the empty refrigerator.
(USJ and the Ferris wheel at Osaka Port can be seen, depending on the direction)

It is also recommended to drink a cocktail, while looking at the scenery at Sky Lounge on the top floor of the hotel.

There are a convenience store, bakery, restaurant, 100 yen shop, and bookstore in the hotel complex and it is very convenient.
It has also good transport links from USJ.

30 minutes from Umeda

I definitely recommend Okura or Oriental at the Kobe port, taking a train to Motomachi. Night views are beautiful, and you can hang around Meriken Park, Mosaic, and the Motomachi area together the next morning. It is also fun to do shopping and eating in Chinatown.

Near a port, if it is OK in Kobe

Since I don’t live in Osaka, Kobe comes to mind immediately when I think about a stylish place to stay near Osaka. You may want to enjoy the city of Kobe and night views, especially for Valentine’s Day. If you can stretch the area to Kobe, this is a hotel where you can enjoy night views near a port from the room and the restaurant.

A convenient and new hotel!

Located on the north side of Osaka Station, it has direct access from Gran Front and is very convenient. It is the newest hotel in Osaka and very beautiful!
Because it is a foreign hotel, the rooms are spacious and stylish. The rooms are upper floors and night views are beautiful! A nice hotel for adults!

It is possible to stay at this price?

My family stays for two nights and three days every year. The entrance has a revolving door and the gorgeous spiral staircase leads to the lobby. Since February is the off-season after New Year holidays, you can stay quite cheaply. Why don’t you search on the internet such as Jalan? Hotels often offer fairly cheap plans when it is not busy after the new year.
We go with a travel agent’s plan including bullet train return tickets from Odawara, a USJ pass, accommodations for under 30,000 yen. It is reasonable if you go to USJ.

Hotel Granvia

It is directly connected to Osaka Station so you can go up to your room without getting wet on a rainy day. There are many old rooms but the rooms are renovated and the bathroom is nice if you stay on the top Granvia Floor. The design is also stylish but the price is not so expensive and is great value for money. Although I booked via Expedia, you should carefully check as the price fluctuates.

The finest hotel, close to Dotonbori

I don’t know what you want to do in Osaka, so please ignore if you don’t like the location. I have downtown "Dotonbori" area in mind as "typical of Osaka" both in good and bad ways.
Since you will have an “overnight date with your boyfriend” (to spent a passionate night) on Valentine's Day on Friday and probably you will spend money lavishly, I recommend the finest hotel.
An atmosphere of the room, food, and views from the room - all are perfect (unless you are super rich). Please spend a great night (and what you do, three letters) with your boyfriend.

It is normal but,

I think it is a reasonable price for a couple to stay casually and simply. The room is nice. It doesn’t have an atmosphere of luxury hotels, but why not spend more for a gift instead? Accessibility to a train station and highways are good. The most important thing is your hearts! Do your best!
