The Prince Sakura Tower Tokyo, Autograph Collection

What kind of hotel is The Prince Sakura Tower Tokyo, Autograph Collection?

This is a luxury hotel near Shinagawa, Haneda Airport, Odaiba.  If you’re in Tokyo in the spring or the fall seasons, I would recommend it.  The large traditional garden would be so beautiful during the seasons.  The garden is lit up at night, creating a mystical atmosphere.  We were excited to take a walk in the garden.  Also, the hotel has a spectacular night city view.  If you’re looking for a nice hotel with a night view, it would be one of the best.

The exterior of the hotel is outdated, but the inside has been renovated with Japanese-style modern interior design and furniture.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a luxury 5-star hotel in Tokyo, this is not.  This is not a super-luxury hotel, but all staff is absolutely first-class.  The ambiance would be more cozy, relaxed, and friendly. 

Overall the hotel has great value for money.  If you are a solo traveler, business person, couple, family with children, or group, it would be nice for you.

Rooms I would recommend?

The Prince Sakura Tower Tokyo, Autograph Collection

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend a room with a Tokyo Tower view on a high floor possible.  You can view a beautiful Tokyo tower in good weather while chilling out in the room.  On the other hand, I wouldn’t recommend a room on the south side.  The views wouldn’t be special.

How about the executive lounge on 1F?

Overall the executive lounge would be good for the price range.  The food presentation including beverages wouldn’t be special, but the ambiance with a nice garden view is cozy.  If you spend a lot of time in the hotel, I would recommend booking a room with access to the executive lounge.  You can also use executive lounges in the sister inns, Grand Prince Hotel Shin Takanawa, and Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa.  The food presentation is almost the same for all three.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, yukatas, bathrobes, a coffee machine with capsules, English tea bags, a Japanese tea set, bottled water, welcome sweets, etc.  There were Acca Kappa bath amenities in my bathroom.  Room service is available for 24H.  Turn-down service is available.  The Free Wi-Fi reception was excellent.  There are some convenience stores around Shinagawa Station.
