From my recent trip back to Korea, and JapanI’ve stayed at the Hilton Hotel Narita Airport for my overnight stay in Tokyo.

This hotel was in my mind b/c of a couple of huge benefits. 

– It is near the airport so there is a complementary shuttle bus to the airport. This is huge because I only need few hours of sleep before my morning flight out of Narita

– It also provides free shuttle to the Narita JR station so I can hang out.

– I was able to get a free breakfast thanks to my Hilton Honor Gold Status from the benefit of having this card. 

– Umm… Free Sauna for Gold & Diamond members. 

– And… it only costs me 20,000 Hilton points. Good, right?
