Sheraton Miyako Hotel Tokyo Reviews
Back for Second Time.....nothing to rant or rave about Sheraton Miyako Hotel Nov 11, 2010
Back for the Second Time......The first time was Years ago and they have remolded since then. I thought that it was what you would expect from s Sheraton, comparable to the Chicago Downtown Sheraton (Lobby a bit Nicer). Paid about $150 American Dollars on Hotels.com, But we booked they day before when we were staying at the Holiday inn at the airport.
Busy Residential area, there are not many sights to see around there. Had problem finding train from there and ended up taking a cab (which are over priced compared with Chicago Taxis). They do have a free shuttle That runs from the Hotel to a nice & really Busy shopping / Dinning area, takes about 5mins. Found out days later that we could have taken the Tokyo Metro from this area.
Really Nice. Above Sheraton Standards. View from rooms just ok. Quite. Free American News paper every day.
The service is really good and you can book tours from the front desk, they are a bit over priced compared to booking them online or though a travel agent.
The Food was really good, our Breakfast was included in the room price. They have a mixture of Traditional American and Japanese Food. Compared to the other two hotels that we stayed in during our time in TOKYO this was by Far the Best Food.
Side Note about eggs.....
It is funny because they offer White and Brown Eggs just for Americans, white eggs are very expensive there along with the fruit imported from Chile. Asked them about the Two Different eggs, Their response was AMERICANS DO NOT EAT BROWN EGGS. But if you do order eggs to be cooked your way make sure you tell them to over cook them, they tend to under cook eggs.
We were planning on doing a bunch of walking tours on our own.....Get the INSITE GUIDE TO TOKYO (at Boarders about $9.95), Great guide with map and a bunch of different day walking tours. The Map also has the streets in Japanese, VERY HELPFUL....all the street signs are in Japanese and few people on the street can read English. So English map of Tokyo is really not help full. The Hotel was not in the best location for this.....if you want to be near all the sites for the same standers, STAY AT THE AKASAKA HOTEL MONTEREY (really nice Business hotel, wrote a review on it).
Enjoy Tokyo...go to Oriental bazaar, tel 3400-3933 #9-13, jingumae 5-chome, shibuya-ku, tokyo. Great place to get all your gifts to take home to friends, they have the best prices. Right need Hello Kiddy Land and THe Famous TODS Glass building.
