"Well appointed rooms"
I spent one night at the Intercontinental Tokyo Bay. It was easy to get to the hotel from Haneda Airport - just one stop on the monorail and a short walk. The staff were very friendly, and the rooms are very roomy and comfortably appointed. My room had a shower and a tub, which had a window with great views overlooking the water. I would certainly stay here again.
"Modern for Tokyo but business hotel (not for weekends)"
The service is everything you your expect from a international 5 star hotel in Japan, the decor and infrastructure is much more modern than many hotels in Tokyo. Tokyo Bay is a bit out of the way surrounded by offices (it appears). At weekends the area is a ghost town so the hotel has adapted by holding express weddings and being a restaurant hub for locals as there is nothing else in the area - problem if you are a resident and want to get something to eat - today all restaurants are fully booked so we're about to have our Sunday lunch as room service in our room (and we've been told even that will take an hour). Not good for tourists (and a reminder that in Japan restaurant visits are booked up well in advance). Even my IHG Elite Spire (top tier) status makes no difference - Not a good experience - re-focus future visits to Marriott/SPG.
"Avoid the Tourists and High Prices- Stay at the Intercontinental Tokyo Bay"
Hamamatsucho, Daimon, the Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo Bay- all reserve a sentimental space within my heart from a life I once lived as an overseas servicemember- but that is a story for another day... Every time I find myself in Tokyo, I find myself at this property... I'm not sure of the exact reason why, maybe it is because this place feels like a escape from the suffocation of the crowds or maybe it is how the sun appears outside the windows when he is flanked by the rainbow bridge too early in the morning. Either way, expect the shuttle buses to leave promptly and a member of staff to still be positioned in a bow even after your elevator doors close. Pros- Room sizes are larger than similar hotels, great views of Tokyo Bay, close to Tsukiji, Odaiba, ferry ports to the smaller adjacent islands, good offering of restaurants, convenience store on the 3rd floor, service is on par with similar hotels but for a lesser price Cons- Not convenient for walking from the train stations but they have shuttle buses to/fro Shinagawa and Hamamatsucho, fitness center doesn't have any weights, secluded from outside restaurants and stores Stay here if: you have plans that include Odaiba, Tsukiji, Minato-ku, Tokyo Bay, you don't mind the isolation, you enjoy great views of Tokyo Bay, you don't have to a strict time schedule to adhere to, you want a nice, impressionable hotel at a good value
"Not so excited about Club Lounge this time around"
Just a quick review on the third or fourth time we have stayed here. The price of the Club lounge seems to have increased, and the quality of the food offerings has not improved. We really like the location of this hotel, however next time we would not bother to spend the extra for Club access. Breakfast, for example, continues to offer minuscule bowls of cereal which you are expected to eat with a tea spoon. OK, this is Japan but this is an international hotel, and other IHG hotels in Japan don’t do the same thing. Evening meals have not changed at all since two years ago and are very uninteresting. Might be worth it if you drink alcohol but we don’t and you’d need to consume a fair bit to get your money’s worth. On the positive side the hotel now has two shuttles, the usual one to Hamamatsucho and a new one to Shinagawa which is excellent for those catching the Shinkansen.n
I was in this hotel, not a lot of thing around, but the hotel is wonderful, i had a wonderful view on Tokyo bay Not really far also from the subway and fish market Was really a wonderful time, the people inside was so kind, and always try to provide you services
