InterContinental Osaka

A sleek, chic city-center retreat

At a towering 32 stories, InterContinental Osaka makes a dazzling first impression. Boasting skyline views, an internationally acclaimed French-Japanese fusion restaurant and one of the city’s only full-size hotel pools, the luxurious outpost delivers on all counts.

Where the hotel impresses in stature, it is equally as mindful of the smallest details. Signature scents permeate gathering spaces and a thoughtful tea amenity is provided in every room. And in a thoughtful nod to Japanese culture, each accommodation boasts a bathtub.

Delightful amenities aside, the sumptuous skyscraper offers an enviable location in the heart of the city. Just a five-minute walk from Osaka Station, Intercontinental Osaka is discreetly tucked within the luxury Grand Front Osaka shopping complex and a brief stroll from the Umeda Sky Building and its Instagram-worthy 40th-floor city views — not that you ever need to stray from your hotel room to soak in the jaw-dropping vistas.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • While InterContinental Osaka is an undeniably chic retreat, its central address is among its top attributes. Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Castle and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan all lie within walking distance, and the hotel’s proximity to the main train station makes a day trip to nearby Kyoto, Kobe or Nara a breeze.
  • Thoughtful Japanese touches can be found around every corner at this stylish Osaka stay. En suite bathtubs are stocked with sakura- and sandalwood-scented bath salts and the hotel’s own bespoke tea blend (peach and apple) is on offer at the onsite patisserie.
  • A rarity among hotels in Japan, InterContinental Osaka’s full-size swimming pool is a major draw for locals and tourists. Swimming caps, goggles and extra towels are all available to borrow so you can take full advantage of the luxurious amenity.
  • In addition to a sumptuous spa, the Osaka retreat boasts indulgent locker room facilities complete with separate men’s and women’s hot bath houses. The onsen-style facility provides the perfect way to unwind after a long day of sightseeing.
  • Check into a Club Level room to enjoy unlimited access to the luxury hotel’s 28th-floor Club Lounge. À la carte and buffet breakfast, afternoon tea, evening canapes and cocktails are all served here, with a side of stellar city views, of course.

The Restaurants

  • Internationally acclaimed restaurant Pierre offers a seasonal multi-course menu and a helping of skyline vistas. French-Japanese fusion fare is the specialty, with menus changing every three days to feature just-plucked vegetables, freshly caught seafood and other fresh ingredients.
  • Noka Roast & Grill provides a signature dining experience for lunch and dinner, featuring à la carte mains and buffet-style salads, appetizers and desserts. Floor-to-ceiling windows ensure you can enjoy your meal without missing out on those Osaka vistas.
  • Aptly named for InterContinental Osaka’s address, 3-60 lounge is a stylish space for afternoon tea or a pre-dinner cocktail. Be sure to browse the art collection on display here and in the adjacent lobby.
  • Super-chic Adee is an attractive spot for after-dinner cocktails. Three unique afternoon tea experiences are also on offer, made even more enjoyable when accompanied by live music on Friday and Saturday evenings.
  • On the luxury hotel’s ground floor, Stressed serves up Japanese pastries and an array of souvenir tea sets that make perfect gifts.
