"Ideal location after a day of exploration"
We stayed 8 nights at this hotel in mid-May 2017. The hotel rooms are clean and a good size. Staff was helpful, courteous and most spoke English. Complimentary coffee and tea was provided. Bottled water was not available (mentioned by another reviewer). They also asked us to pay for our rooms half way thru our stay (as mentioned by another reviewer) due to our "long stay". They give you to option of paying in JY or USD. For me paying in JY provided a better exchange rate. My only complaint was the limited number of outlets for all of our electronic devices. The views from the hotel lobby and our rooms was fantastic. Great view of Tokyo Tower every day. Even got to see Mt. Fuji one morning. We were on the 28th floor, but I suspect every room in hotel has great city views. The location of the hotel was great for exploring Tokyo. Located above the Shiodome subway station and a 15 minute walk to the Shimbashi station (via the underground mall, on B2 or elevated walkway on the 3rd floor). Being so close to transit was a welcomed relief at the end of a long day of sightseeing. The hotel lobby is just an elevator ride from the subway and a 15 minute walk from Shimbashi via a well lit mall that was still active late at night (so you felt safe). Ginza and the Tsukiji Fish Market are also a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel. We did not eat at the daily breakfast buffett. We hit the Family Mart (multiple locations in the underground mall below the hotel) and stocked up on snacks to eat while sightseeing before a sit down meal for lunch. There are multiple restaurants (20+) in the mall with different price points. On our last day we ate at Marugame Seimen in the Caretta building after checking out of the hotel. They serve tempura and udon cafeteria style and cater mostly to business people. Fortunately, they have an English menu - just ask. . Service is fast. Starbucks, McDonalds. and 711 stores are common in the Caretta building. Narita Airport Limo Bus will pick you up from the hotel and take you to the airport from the first floor of the Shiodome Media Tower (name of building hotel is located in). Beats the hassle of hauling luggage thru subway/train stations. A little more expensive per person but worth it. The hotel staff can make reservations for you. The staff will deliver your luggage to the bus.
"Room was a it worn, but otherwise fine hotel"
Room was a bit worn and I found the bed and pillows to be somewhat uncomfortable. Room was small but I think that seemed to be pretty standard size for Tokyo and the space was efficiently used and kept clean The hotel was very helpful with forwarding our luggage to our next destination and that was appreciated.
"It all about the views...."
...well, actually it's a great hotel, too - just the highlight for me were the views from our room.. We stayed earlier in May for 7 nights, this being our first trip to Tokyo... Great 4* hotel, I would definitely stay again and recommend to others. Positives: - Did I mention the view' The hotel lobby starts on the 25th floor, so all rooms would be guaranteed some kind of view. We paid extra for a corner room (Sky Tower view), on the 29th floor and were not disappointed! Almost floor to ceiling, panoramic views looking towards Mount Fuji, from the bed! Incredible. - Comfortable and fairly spacious room, with huge bed. - Good bathroom, toiletries etc. - Very quiet, we slept very well every night. - Despite arriving early, we were able to check-in at 10:00, some 5 hours before official check-in (which was handy due to some serious jet-lag). - Location, fairly quiet, commercial type of area with lots of nearby offices, but very handy for public transport, being right on 2 subway and 1 railway lines. If you don't mind a bit of a walk, you can easily wander up the main '5th Avenue' style shopping streets which we did several times - on your way to 'Tokyo' main station. Also you are very near to the fish market - a must when visiting Tokyo. - The staff were great and couldn't do enough for us, with plenty of available advice on how to get to places. - Prices around the hotel (e.g. the minibar) were fairly sensible. - There is a convenience store in the basement of the building where you can stock up on snacks, if required. Negatives (TBH, not many): - The communal areas of the hotel were fairly small, with not much choice of dining options. - The restaurant closed fairly early (by UK standards, anyway). On a particular Saturday night, after 21:30 there was only room service food available to eat in the bar. On the night when we did get to the restaurant early, the service felt very rushed as they hurried to clear everyone out. - Being that the area was very commercial, at the weekend, it felt very quiet and again, nearby restaurants were closed early. Summary: As long as you are not expecting a 5* hotel (although this came very close, in my opinion) and are not scared of heights - then this could be the ideal resting place for you! Just plan your day to make sure that you either eat out or have plenty of time left in the evening to have your evening meal at the hotel. Getting to all the attractions that Tokyo has to offer was easy by using the nearby subway and train links. Tips: - A taxi from Haneda airport came in at around $45US, although it would have been possible to take the monorail to a nearby station, with just a single change and then short walk. - Getting to Narita airport was achieved by using the Narita Express (included on your JR Pass, btw), to Tokyo station then a quick change and a few local stops to get to the hotel. As it's much further out, I think a taxi to Narita would be expensive.
"Well located great views of Tokyo"
The Park Hotel is a very well located hotel, close to Ginza and the Shinbashi train station. Extremely clean hotel and helpful staff. Hotel is nice and quiet but close enough to the nightlife to keep you active. Great views of Tokyo tower from the corner rooms. Good sized rooms. The Yamanote line (which circles Tokyo) can be accessed from the Shinbashi station which is extremely useful. This gives you extremely good access to most of Tokyo's attractions. Train travel on the Yamanote line is free if you have a JR Pass. no complaints.
"Pretty hotel but lacks usual warmth "
This was our last stop in Japan and we stayed a week here. It's a nice hotel but caters more to foreign travelers than local Japanese tourists. They serve a morning breakfast which we didn't sign up for the package. The place touts itself as part museum so you see lots of art pieces in the lobby which is nice but has a sterile feel where you don't quite feel comfortable like in a museum. The staff is polite but feels guarded. The strange thing is that 2 days into our stay, they asked for partial payment on the rooms because we were "staying a long time". Most hotels settle the bill at the conclusion of the stay. So either they have fiscal problems or have gotten stiffed on the bill in the past. There is a small laundromat on the 26th floor as well as a gym. Use of the gym requires booking an appointment. From our room we had a great view of the city and Tokyo Tower and one clear day we're lucky to see Mt. Fuji in the distance. The hotel has access to small Japanese restaurants in the basement which were frequented by business folks. It is walking distance to a mall with Starbucks, Japanese restaurants and the metro. There are a couple of nearby Family Marts to pick up food, Japanese snacks and water. We were able to purchase tickets from the hotel for the bus to pick us up from the hotel lobby and take us to the airport for our flight home, recommend you book 2 days ahead to guarantee a seat. The rooms are clean and they give you complimentary drip coffee, tea and a large bottle of water. I would stay at the hotel due to location near the metro and JR lines which we took daily but didn't really like the stiff feel of the lobby and the strange policy of paying for part of your room bill halfway thru your stay.
