I've stayed at Strings twice and really enjoyed both visits. The hotel lobby is located on the 26th floor and is within a relatively small atrium style space. The lobby is very relaxing and feels quite exclusive and isolated from the bustle below it. Rooms are modern and good size for Tokyo but wouldn't qualify as spacious most places.Views from the rooms are excellent! The decor is modern and up to date. Rooms were very clean. The bathroom was very nice with a shower and separate tub in the same enclosure. I hadn't seen that anywhere before but it was attractive and functional. The tub was large and looked great for soaking. There's a good gym but no spa facilities. There a bar and restaurant in the open lobby/atrium area and another Chinese restaurant, separated from the main lobby, with a better view on one side of the building. The bar is a good place to unwind especially during happy hour. Breakfast was a bit of a disappointment. There are eggs ordered from a menu combined with a rather smallish buffet. It's not bad just not up to the quality of the rest of the hotel experience. They offer a few different types of omelets but there's a 800¥ up charge for ham and cheese. I didn't get that, when there's ham and cheese available at the buffet (is there some sort of additional labor?) There are a lot of other great eating choices in the immediate area. Check out noodle alley, if you like that sort of thing (I do! ) its great. One of the best parts of the hotel is it's really excellent location next to Shinagawa station. Great connections to Tokyo public transportion system. This made it really easy to get around. The staff were eager to please and help out with special requests and the concierge was good, although I wish he were on duty a little earlier. I had minor problems connecting with the Internet but it was free and mostly good.
Overall a few minor blimps but one of my favorite hotels ever, I'd happily go back.
