For the overnight stop in Nagoya, an airport hotel was not only preferred but almost essential. Luckily, there are more than a few options available on the island, all within walking distance of the terminal. One of these was the Four Points by Sheraton. I had stayed in one of these back in 2016 in Seoul, and don’t remember it being too bad, despite being the more budget brand of the group.
The price paid was 25,000 Bonvoy points, most of which were racked up at the LeMeridien in Abu Dhabi a few weeks previously. The cash price was £120/night during my stay, so a decent saving there.
Upon arriving at the airport, the hotels were signposted, although not too brilliantly. I actually had to make a point of looking for them as opposed to them being blindingly obvious.
Upon taking the walk across the bridge, there was a shuttle to make the two minute drive. In my opinion, this wasn’t needed in the slightest, especially considering that the following morning, I made the walk in less time than the shuttle took!

Check in was very efficient. I handed over my passport, given a form to sign and was handed my room key in just a minute or two. Which was very welcome considering I had left the hotel in Oslo some 30 hours previously so was in need of some rest!
I was allocated a room on the 12th and top floor of the hotel.
Upon entering, there was an area to hang clothes, along with shoe storage.
Also in this area was a bottle of air freshener, which is something I’ve not seen in a hotel before!
I was expecting a small room, so was pleasantly surprised when I entered. Despite the room not being the biggest I’ve stayed in, it was still fine for tonight, or even a few nights.
Most of the room was taken up with the king sized bed.
At the far end of the room was a small table and chair.
Along the front of the room was a decent sized work desk, complete with nearby power and lighting.
One of the more interesting characteristics of this room was the fact that the wiring wasn’t embedded into the walls. Instead, it was in industrial styled conduit.
The industrial theme continued into the bathroom. Everything here was as expected. And very clean too.
There was a separate wet room consisting of both a bath and a shower.
There were a number of amenities provided in the bathroom.
Provided in the room was two bottles of water and tea/coffee making facilities.
Ironically, there was more of an airport view from this hotel than the one I’d actually paid for in Oslo previously on this trip.
Provided in the lobby was a pantry, a bar and a restaurant. As a Bonvoy Member, I was offered 10% off at each of these, however I didn’t indulge. Sleep was my main aim of this stay!
The Four Points Sheraton at Nagoya Airport would have definitely made it on to my top ten airport hotels list had I published it a week later!
The hotel seemed to be mostly new, with comfortable, clean and characteristic rooms. Whilst I suspect that most visitors will only be staying the one night at this property, you could easily spend more. Within walking distance of the airport, links to the city are fairly good.
If you are staying for a shorter period however, then the hotel offers a good number of amenities on site. Failing this, I did spot a convenience store nearby, which is no doubt open 24 hours like most in Japan.
