Do rates ever go under $1k a night there?

Maybe if you combine a deal during offseason with prestige 4th night free

Lol, I've never stayed in an Aman. From another DDFer. Seemed pretty amazing though.
One day...

I am staying 3 nights in Tokyo and want to know if PH/Andaz are worth the points if I don't have status. I have 60k Hyatt points with plenty of UR to transfer in if need be. I see HRT is only 12k/night and the new Centric in Ginza is 20k/night. I stayed at PH Paris and Milan while Diamond so I have had the PH experience FWIW. Without status, will the PH/Andaz experience be that much better than either HRT or Centric? Not considering the GH. Going mid-week so Shabbos isn't an issue. TIA.
Having not stayed at the PH or the Centric, I thought the Regency was a great deal when we stayed there a few years back.

The location of the Centric is awesome, right in Ginza near Tokyo station, and it's basically a brand new hotel. If you're not worried about Shabbos and not eating in the hotel, for the location alone I'd lean towards the Centric...but it's still not the PH.

I just stayed in the hyatt regency and ihg strings in January. The strings was nicer but not the best location unless you plan on taking a Shinkansen. Hyatt regency is nicely located in shinjuku, my preferred place to stay. I found their concierge to be incredibly helpful with bookings and they were in constant communication with me throughout via email and phone calls. It wasn’t the Aman tokyo but The regency was definitely worth the price imho
