Stayed at Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawks hotel in December 2019. Being a lifetime diamond member, received upgrade to the corner room with amazing view. Nice breakfast, decent gym, stone bath onsen was a nice touch. Free shuttle bus service to a nearby subway station. All first class that you’d expect from Hilton standard. What I felt this hotel was above the rest was the staff, from executive lounge to the lobby, and restaurant staff. I felt they were so willing to help and to go above and beyond their duty calls for. For this reason, I’d consider my experience at Hilton Fukuoka to be the best I’ve had in Japan.
We stayed in the Hilton Fukuoka Seahawk while following the Rugby World Cup in Japan. This large hotel has spacious, clean, luxurious rooms with (in our case, at least) good views; friendly, helpful staff; and a vast buffet restaurant where we received some of the most Westernised breakfasts we enjoyed while in Japan. The place also has a fairly extensive shopping mall (including a pharmacy and (no surprise) a Family Mart franchise outlet). It is linked to a pub complex called The Hub that in turn is connected to the Seahawks' baseball stadium; and there is a luxurious (if expensive and busy) top floor cocktail nar. Just up the road is a vast retail area. So, what's not to like? Two things, chiefly: the hotel is at least a twenty-minute bus ride from Downtown Fukuoka; and like many hotels in Japan the gym/fitness area offering does not seem adequate for a place of its size. Also on one occasion there was not enough available space in the breakfast buffet so we were hived off to an overspill restaurant created for the day in an upstairs meeting room. This was not an unpleasant experience but as Hilton Honours members we had hoped to be certain of a place in the dining area set aside for such guests. All in all however we enjoyed our few days in this hotel and I do not have any complaints.
Second time in Fukuoka, wish I could've known this place for my last visit. It's just really worth the money, I mean in a "you get what you paid for" way. We got a pretty good deal during Hilton's 100th year anniversary, it's about $150 per night, but I would pay a lot more than that per night for 3 adults and 1 toddler at any time.
Less than 15 min drive away from the airport
Very decent restaurants and bar on site, shops and convenient store downstairs
Rooms are relatively big, compared to average Japanese hotel rooms (it might also be the case that we got the corner room, which has an amazing view of the bay btw)
Nice gym, pool and kids play area (critical for anyone with a two year old)
A good enough mall literally 5 min walk away, it's actually kinda connected via bridges
$10 parking per night as guests of the hotel
Everybody speaks English
Cons: (these are things I don't mind personally but it's there)
Bathroom is a bit small and does show its age
The hotel can be a bit overwhelming during game night and early morning when people lining up for the buffet
That's pretty much it, we had a great time there, will go back, no doubt.
Btw, there's a big ass grocery store on the first floor of the mall, the options available are just gonna blow you away!
Large rooms well appointed. We had a corner suite so we had 2 large beds a lounge room with large tv desk and corner lounge. Large entry with cupboard. Bathroom had a bath and shower and large vanity area. Views of the ocean and the Fukuoka area was amazing. Breakfast was plentiful and great service. Gym was adequate. Staff were the best. Will definitely return
We stayed one night as a part of a 2 week tour of Japan. We were travelling with my 22 year old daughter who lives in Japan.
We were staying in room 3121 on the 31st floor in a family executive suite.
Our room was simply stunning with an amazing view of Hakata Bay and the mountains,islands and the Fukuoka Tower.
We had two separate bedrooms with twin beds in each. We shared a bathroom.
The suite was huge with large panoramic windows in both rooms. The drapes were electric.
We had 2 tv’s a fridge, a Nespresso machine , tea and coffee making facilities.
The bathroom was large with a walk in shower and separate bath.
There was an abundance of storage space.
We all slept comfortably .
We used the executive lounge and the staff particularly the manager and Michelle were a real asset to the hotel.
The executive lounge was excellent for evening snacks,cocktails and breakfast.
The views from the 33rd floor were stunning. We had views of the Hawk Stadium and across the bay with the opposite view to that of our room.
We used the gym and it was excellent.
All staff we encountered were a credit to the hotel and the Hilton Brand.
Thank you for looking after us so well.
Use the shuttle bus to the metro on weekends. As we arrived on a Friday we hailed a cab from the metro. It cost 800y. It took about 10 minutes by cab.
A first class experience all round.
