Where to Stay in Tokyo Japan







Two great options on where to stay in Tokyo include:

The Park Hotel: I stayed at the Park Hotel, Design Hotel. It is located on the 25th floor of the “Shiodome Media Tower” at the corner of Media City Shiodome, the new center of business and culture. Guests can easily access the inner and outer Metropolitan Tokyo including Haneda Airport. The Park Hotel Tokyo is directly connected to Shiodome Station on the Toei Oedo subway line and Tokyo Waterfront New Transit Yurikamome, and is a short walk from the Shimbashi Station on the JR and subway lines. It was attractive with nice rooms, good restaurants plus the buildings nearby, including Shiodome City Center, have great restaurants at very reasonable prices. I found that restaurants tend to specialize in specific cuisine, such as sushi, sukiyaki, tempura and yakitori or even by ingredients like tofu. Remember that the city is huge and after exploring the city all day, it was great coming back to the hotel and eating close by. I liked the fact that it was well-connected to the subway and train system that allowed me to explore many areas of the city.

According to Culture Trip “this hotel promises a “fresh look at art, culture and life” as well as panoramic views of Tokyo. For the full experience, opt for a room on the 31st floor. Aptly named the Artist Floor, the walls of 31 rooms have been transformed by 31 artists, with dreamlike murals that give guests an introduction to traditional Japanese culture; expect cranes, geishas and sumo wrestlers above the bed. On check-in, guests are assigned an art concierge, who explains the piece they will be staying in and offers tours of other rooms.”

Park Hyatt Hotel: Made famous by the movie Lost in Translation, this is a stylish hotel in a great location. If you can’t stay there, at least stop in to see the hotel bar, have a drink or meal.

Other properties getting good press include Hotel Claska, Palace Hotel and the Mandarin Oriental and the Shinagawa Prince Hotel.
