Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo

If you get much of an immersive “5-star luxury hotel” experience in Tokyo as you expect, you should stay at Shangri-La Hotel, Tokyo.  Perhaps, if this is your first visit to Tokyo, the hotel would be perfect.  The location is near the Yaesu Exit of Tokyo Station.  It takes just 5min on foot.  Also “Meet and greeting service” is available for free.   If you bring small children, wheelchair users, people with weak feet or you have a lot of luggage, etc., this service is useful.  You can request staff to meet at Tokyo station’s platforms and they directly escort guests to the hotel.  Tokyo Station is very large and many people are coming and going all day.  If you need some help, you should contact in advance.  Then if you are a gourmet, I think you should stay here.  Overall, the food would be the best in Tokyo if compared to other 5-star hotels.  If you are a gourmet, you must be excited.  Then Shangri-La Hotel, Tokyo would be great for couples, family, groups, solo travelers, or business persons.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a garden view and access to the club lounge on Horizon Club floors.  We were escorted to the club lounge on 37F to check-in, and wonderful sweets and coffee were served.  The food presentation at the club lounge is amazing.  No doubt this is one of the best in Tokyo.  You would never get bored of the food.  You can use the club lounge between 7:00 and 22:00.  Complimentary sandwich, scone, cake, marmalade, fruit, cookie, coffee, and tea, etc., available for Afternoon Tea between 14:30 and 16:30.  Also, complimentary beer, wine, Japanese sake, shochu, whiskey, cocktail, scotch, brandy, champagne, coffee, milk, fresh juice, salad, sushi, caponata, sliced steak, French roll, focaccia, prosciutto, blue cheese, and finger food, etc., are available for Evening Cocktail between 17:30 and 20:00.  The lounge tends to be cramped but very comfortable in a tranquil atmosphere.  Then you can choose the club lounge or the restaurant called Piacere on 28F for breakfast.  I would highly recommend having at the restaurant as the breakfast buffet is amazingly displayed.  There are many kinds of lovely danish pastries.  You can choose special dishes to enjoy the buffet, such as omelet, egg benedict, poached egg, and pancake, etc.  The buffet is not so extensive, but each dish is very high end.  Don’t forget to bring your empty stomach.  Then there is a business meeting room next to the lounge where you can use it for 2 hours for free, and some computers are available.  Then the room is impeccable.  The free wifi reception was good.  You can borrow DVD players, Blu-Ray players, and humidifiers.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, bathrobes, yukatas, a yoga mat, bottled water, a Nespresso machine with capsules, English tea bags, snacks, popcorn with free movie tickets, welcome chocolate, and a green tea set, etc.  There were L’Occitane skincare products and BVLGARI bath amenities in our bathroom.  Room service is available for 24H.  There is a convenience store nearby.  Then this is child-friendly.  Staff provides cribs, baby baths, pajamas, room keys, teddy bears, and amenities, etc., for children if you request in advance.  *One child (ages 11 and under) per adult will be free of charge for co-sleep.  Then the hotel is dog-friendly.  *Up to 15 kilograms  Actually, there are few luxury hotels in Tokyo where you can bring your pets.  That’s a great service. You need to inform the staff in advance by e-mail.   *Please note that you cannot use the club lounge with your dogs.  Then Shangri-La Hotel, Tokyo is a perfect universal design.  There are some rooms for wheelchair users.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then there is an indoor swimming pool, a spa, saunas, a Jacuzzi, and a gym in-house.  The swimming pool is open from 6:30-22:00.  *A minimum age requirement of 4 applies.  The gym is open for 24 hours.  *A minimum age requirement of 18 applies.  You can borrow swimwear, swim caps, sportswear, and shoes, etc.  On top of that, BMW bicycles are available for free.  “First come, First served”  You can go cycling around the Imperial Palace in good weather.  Also, CHI Spa on 29F is wonderful.  You need to make an appointment for spa treatment by e-mail if you want to visit.  It’s open from 9:30-21:30.  Then, all staff is truly sophisticated.  It couldn’t be better.  Unluckily, the price range is going further up year by year but it’s worth every penny.  At last, if you want to stay in a tranquil atmosphere, you might want to avoid during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, Mid-autumn festival, and the end of the year and New Year holiday.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Shangri-La Hotel, Tokyo from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  **Check-in and out times 3:00 PM/12:00 PM Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on or Agoda
