Park Hyatt - Shuttle questions

Hello All,

We are debating on staying at the Park Hyatt Tokyo, but are a little worried about the location. Does it indeed have a shuttle to Shinjuku station? I could not find anything on their website about it... Has anyone used it? Was it convenient? (how often did one come? did you have to wait? etc)

Thank you!

reply #1 above is for Hyatt Regency, NOT the same hotel.

Your shuttle bus is not stopping at bus stop 35, but across the street from Odakyu Halc.

"A complimentary shuttle bus serves the hotel with regularly scheduled departures from the Shinjuku L-Tower Building." (See reply #2)

The shuttle stop is not easy to find on your own if you are visiting Shinjuku station for the first time. I would recommend you take a taxi (costs all of $7-10) if you are arriving on the airport train with luggage and then take the shuttle back to the station when you are ready to tour Tokyo. That way you will know what the stop looks like and how to find it from the station. That being said, the shuttle is great, runs like clockwork every 20m. Really nice to start your day or to pick you up when you are tired after a day of walking.

Any questions on the Park Hyatt feel free to PM me, we stayed there in May.

The Shuttle is fairly easy to find if you've got proper directions before hand. Bear in mind that Shinjuku station is incredibly crowded during rush hour. Be prepared for a crush of office workers as you make your way to the shuttle bus stop. Assuming you're arriving on the Narita Express, head down the stairs from the platform towards the West exit. When you get closer to the exit you'll want specifically to find the West Central exit, located just to the right of the Odakyu Railway. After proceeding through the exit turnstyle, follow the tunnels towards stairway Exit 20. Use the maps located along the way to make sure you're heading in the right direction. As you approach Exit 20, look for signs pointing to the Shinjuku L Tower. You'll see an escalator inside the tower that will bring you up one floor to street level. Exit the building to the sidewalk. Turn right and follow the sidewalk about 20 meters until you see a small gap in the sidwalk barricade. That is the bus stop. The shuttle bus is a small 10 seat mini van - silver grey in color.

Unless you have heavy luggage the shuttle is pointless as from the station to the hotel is only about a ten minute walk with a moving pavement much of the way.

Once again, Park Hyatt is not the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

- "a ten minute walk with a moving pavement much of the way" is for HYATT REGENCY, AND only if the moving pavement is going in your direction - it goes towards the hotel during morning rush hours, then the opposite direction for the rest of the day

- If using this moving walkway for PARK HYATT, 450 m to the end of the moving walkway, then 950 m to the hotel. Very impressive if you can do all that in 10 minutes walking.

Bibimbob is right. Park Hyatt is *not* the same as Hyatt Regency. Even the Hyatt Regency is more like a 12-15 minute walk. Park Hyatt is way out there.

For folks arriving with luggage, if you have the budget to stay at Park Hyatt, you probably have the budget for a 730 Yen taxi ride. The shuttle is good once you have settled into the hotel.
