If you are kind enough to follow this occasionally-updating blog, my preferred hotel franchises are Hilton/Conrad and Accor/Sofitel, but, as my credit card company decided to terminate benefit with Accor group, this will end by the next year; as Accor group is so kind enough to sustain my preferred level towards the end of next year, despite of termination of benefit agreement with that credit card. In any cases, it is unlikely to feature IHG hotels so many occasions this year, simply because those are not my choice.
Intercontinental Osakais a north-end part of Grand Front Osaka, relatively new complex next to north entrances of JR Osaka station, connected by overbridge, so it may take 5 minutes from north entrance by walk; no umbrella required.
NOKAis located in 20th floor, where check-in lobby and bar are also located, to serve all-day dining, from breakfast to lunch and dinner by buffet and grill, which means we can also enjoy omelette at breakfast, as well as grill dishes at lunch and dinner.
At breakfast, subject to your arrangement, once you are guided to your table, then staff should ask for a egg-grill dish to serve you; no need to queue up to grill section!
Chief appears young in the morning session, but his skill is as you saw in the picture: very typical Japanese chief-made seamless rugby-football shaped one, with juicy egg yolk inside. Enjoy!
