The Tokyo Station Hotel

This is my cup of tea.  Absolutely, this is one of the best luxury hotels for special occasions in Tokyo.  If you are looking for luxury hotels near Tokyo Station, I would highly recommend The Tokyo Station Hotel.  The location is amazingly perfect when you go out for sightseeing around Tokyo.  Access to the property would be easy even if this is your first visit to Tokyo.  On the other hand, if you want to see dynamic Tokyo City views while chilling out at your room, this is not.  I would rather recommend staying at Shangri-La Hotel, Tokyo, or Marunouchi Hotel nearby.  The Tokyo Station Hotel would be great for business persons, solo travelers, or couples.  Also, this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide amenities, meals, and baby cots, etc. if you request in advance.  Then one child (ages 12 and under) per adult will be free of charge for co-sleep.  On top of that, you wouldn’t need to move around with children as the property is directly connected to Tokyo Station.  It seems that there are many families with children during Japan’s spring and summer vacations.  Overall, the ambiance is serene, elegant, and sophisticated.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a dome side room.  You can view a beautiful cupola dome ceiling and the hustle and bustle of commuters streaming in and out of the station from above.  We never get tired of watching the outside from windows.  This is an absolutory one of spectacular places in Tokyo.  It’s truly worth a visit.  Also, most of the dome side rooms would be close to the elevators.  The location would be convenient.   The building is horizontally long.  You may need to walk along very long corridors if you stay rooms on the palace side.  It is like a labyrinth.  Also, some rooms have no nice view.  They tend to be a bit dark even in the daytime.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, bathrobes, pajamas, a coffee machine with capsules, English tea bags, Japanese tea bags, and bottled water, etc.  You can travel light.  Room service is available from 6:00-24:00.  Turn down service is available.  It seems that free Wi-Fi reception tends to be slow in some rooms.  DVD players, Blu-ray players, and CD players are available for borrowing.  There is a convenience store nearby.  A humidifier was placed in our room.  Then The Tokyo Station Hotel is a perfect universal design.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  There is a universal room for wheelchair users.  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 the gym and artificial hot springs on B1 are available.  There is no swimming pool, though.  *A minimum age requirement of 16 applies   The gym costs 1,000JPY.  The hot springs cost 2,000JPY.  They are open from 7:00-23:00 on weekdays, 10:00-20:30 on Saturdays, 10:00-19:00 on Sundays and Japan’s public holidays.  Then food experience for breakfast at the restaurant on 4F was just divine.  You won’t be able to resist even you are full.  The Japanese and western buffet-style breakfast was quite extensive, more than 70 kinds of dishes.  The restaurant would be busy between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM.  You might want to avoid during this time slot if you want to have breakfast in a tranquil atmosphere.  It’s open from 6:30-11:00 for breakfast.  Then after dinner, I would highly recommend taking a walk around the property illuminated.  It’s like you’re in another world.  After that, don’t forget to visit the bar “Camellia” on 2F.  The ambiance is very cozy for adults.  You can chill out here while drinking cocktails.  That’s precious time.  At last, the lobby tends to be cramped.  It seems that the reception would be so busy between 3 PM and 5 PM.  If you want to avoid making a line, you might want to check-in after 5 PM.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about The Tokyo Station Hotel 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 ***You need to inform staff of your expected arrival time in advance.  ****Guests are required to show a photo ID and credit card upon check-in.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Booking.com or Agoda
