How to Get There
We stayed three days at the Shangri-La and found the experience great. While the location at first seemed a bit dull given that it is at Tokyo Station, it turned out to be a good location given that it was so close to to metro with most lines available. The room was spacious, with a great view and the service was superb. The concierge helped us book several restaurants which was very helpful - despite us doing several changes. Well worth the money.
here very near to everything, Tokyo Station, Ginza, etc. is a modern building housing a fantastic hotel. Everything in the hotel is honed to perfection. I remember coming when it first opened under its first General Manager, Wolfgang. Beautiful hotel, super service. Food very well prepared. Our in room breakfast is so beautifully arranged, it's almost a sin to eat and destroy the visual beauty. The staff are all so super courteous and helpful. Rooms are large and so modern. Prices are expensive but it's worth the splurge
The location of this hotel cannot be beat - right beside the main Tokyo Station, near the Imperial Palace and the Ginza District. We took the Narita Express in from the airport and walked right to the hotel. In addition, the hotel is close to two subway stations, while still being extremely quiet.
The service was great and the food as well. The concierge arranged tickets for us for sumo wrestling, the bullet train to Osaka etc. Best of all (as the Tokyo Train Station is very difficult to find your way around) the hotel provided a guide for us who took us right to the exact spot on the train platform our train for Osaka would stop.
The hotel room was beyond comfortable with a great view over the City.
Well worth what we paid to stay there.
Wow. What a beautiful hotel! The rooms are quiet, comfortable, modern, and spacious and perfect for a business trip or couples weekend. I love the fact that the hotel is located beginning on the 28th floor so it keeps everything very secluded, yet you are right in the middle of the Tokyo business district adjacent to the train station.
We finished a cruise in Yokohama and decided to have 3 days in Tokyo before going home. I upgraded to the Horizon Club which was fab. We didn't have afternoon tea, but breakfast and happy hour were perfect with a little hot and cold food laid on with cocktails, champagne etc. We had the deluxe room which was large and the bed was comfortable. There was a choice of garden or city view and we had the city view which was amazing at night. On our last night, we went to the Sushi Restaurant which was a great experience watching all the food prepared in front of us. The Horizon Club staff were very attentive and helpful, arranging transport to the airport for us. We also got us a portable wifi router so we had internet even when we weren't in the hotel.
