1. AC Hotel by Marriott Tokyo Ginza: Non-hotel guests welcome! Relish a gourmet breakfast made from the finest ingredients
The first breakfast spot on our list is AC Hotel by Marriott Tokyo Ginza, a spanking new hotel that just opened in July 2020. This is a lifestyle hotel brand that originated from Spain, and it focuses on presenting the charming European spirit to its guests with a modern yet classic decor. Because this hotel is the brand's first foray onto Japanese shores, it's generated quite a lot of buzz in the area!
The 296 guest rooms have been carefully designed to make visitors feel at home away from home.
You can expect but the highest quality of service here, too. Here are some unique little touches the hotel provides to ensure guests always feel relaxed and welcome during their stay.
- Lavender Turndown: A little lavender sachet for guests, to ensure their peaceful sleep at night.
- European Arrival: When guests check into the hotel, they are shown European-style hospitality with some pâte de fruits candy and apéritif or digestif.
- Porron Experience: Have a traditional Spanish Porron experience by drinking wine from a special decanter designed to not let your lips touch anything!
You're looking at AC Kitchen, an eatery located within the hotel's public space that serves food during breakfast, lunch, and dinner times. Non-hotel guests are welcome! The restaurant's open concept design features large windows where natural light comes flooding in from, making it a very comfortable place to enjoy a good meal indeed.
The current breakfast menu is a buffet of plated herbs paired with other morning regulars. The hotel has enhanced safety measures against infectious diseases in view of the current COVID-19 pandemic, so guests can rest assured that their dining experience is both safe and enjoyable.
Choose from Western or Japanese cuisine for your main dish. Eggs and bread-related food items are prepared on-the-spot in the restaurant's kitchen for maximum freshness. You can also expect to find other premium ingredients on your plate, such as artistically arranged sliced ham, butter croissants, crunchy cucumbers, and special coffee brews.
If you really liked the breakfast here, you can also come back again for lunch and dinner!
Right next to AC Kitchen is the stylish bar, AC Lounge®️, which offers fragrant drinks such as rosemary or cloves gin and tonic, Spanish tapas, and other irresistible alcoholic beverages.

2. Hotel Monterey: A colorful American breakfast of unbeatable value!
This grand hotel stands majestically in a quiet corner along the main street and is strategically located close to a number of stations plied by various train routes.
One of the first things that catch people's attention about the hotel is its classic architecture, designed to look like a posh Paris apartment block. This makes it especially photogenic even among the many other stylish buildings that can be found along Ginza's streets. An elegantly decorated lobby greets visitors once they step through the doors of the hotel.
Hotel rooms here feature natural and warm hues that quickly make guests feel right at home, and the wide variety of room types and packages available means there's something for every travel group, no matter the number of people or purpose!

As part of their measures against the spread of COVID-19, the hotel will distribute one packet of alcohol-based anti-bacterial wet tissues and one heat-resistant paper cup to each hotel guest who requests for them during check-in, while stocks last.
Once ordered, the salad, appetizer, soup, mains plate, and dessert plate will arrive at your table before long, along with individually wrapped bread and drinks for your choosing. On the mains plate, you'll find a perfectly cooked fluffy omelet that is the mainstay of the hotel's breakfast sets. If you're more of a sunny-side-up person, simply make the request for a switch and it will be done.
The food here takes the season into consideration, and ingredients are thus rotated according to the time of the year. This adds even more variety to the restaurant's already diverse range of cuisine and makes mealtime very exciting for guests dining in! You're allowed to ask for seconds, so be sure to leave the hotel fully satisfied and charged up for a vigorous day of activity in Ginza!
On the first floor of the hotel is a French restaurant by the name of Escale, where you can enjoy lunch and dinner in a calm and soothing environment.
