“Bed is comfortable”
Reviewed 16 August 2010

Rooms are nice and I enjoy using jacuzzi at fitness room every time I stay. Only location is the disadvantage but they do have shuttle bus to nearest rail stations every 15 minutes. Both Meguro station and Shinagawa Station have variety of restaurants, fast foods or take out foods inside station building if you want to be cheap. I also found that they have "BOOKOFF store" which is used book/magazines store 5 minutes by walk from hotel and they have a lot of books in English. I didn't check the price but I'm sure it's cheaper than buying import books.
You may be able to get better rate (Non-Refundable, I think) at Ikyu or Rakuten Travel website in English.

I've stayed here over Golden Week, one of the main deciding factors for this hotel were the competitive room rates compared to other chain hotels.

The hotel is in a very nice area, Shirokanedai, which has a more residential feel to it, but there are some very good restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance. The hotel has a very useful map of the restaurants, including which ones have English or picture menus. This is something you might need if you don't speak Japanese.

The room we had was good size, and very clean, however it looked old, it has not seen a renovation in a long time. I did read that there are renovated rooms, but we had not booked one of those.

I'm planning a trip later this year to Tokyo and I will be staying here again, because it is a nice quiet area with a good connection to both Meguro station for getting anywhere in Tokyo and to Shinagawa station for the taking the train out of the city or for Narita Express.

We stayed here 2 nights with 3 young children and managed to get two adjoining rooms, which were a delight after 3 weeks Papua New Guinea ! The staff was very friendly, polite and helpful. Especially at the "travel desk" they gave us very practical information about the subway and so on. The Airport Limousine Bus is also an advantage and a comfortable way to get to/from the airport.
The main disadvantage are the extremely high prices of the meals. Breakfast for 5 persons costs over 13.000 YEN and consists of a menu instead of a buffet.
Our experience in the Japanese restaurant wasn't what we expected of it. The 10.000 YEN menu per person was well below what you would expected for that price. The entree tasted like a jelly fish ; the raw fish didn't look fresh and the tempura dish was quite tasteless. The desert was a joke: one scoop of icecream and that's all.
The Japanese restaurant named Tokyo in Hilversum - the Netherlands, is twice as good and is half the price....

I stayed here for 6 nights in May and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The hotel may be a little old but the lobby area is spectacular and the Tour Desk phenomenally experienced and helpful. The restaurants were great as well with good food and reasonable prices.

All in all the stay was great, the only drawbacks (both of which I found minor) were the plumbing noises from the rooms next door, not all that surprisingly given the amazing toilets they have in Japan with a variety of built in features which woke me a couple of times and the location which necessitated a taxi ride to the nearest Metro station (only a couple of pounds) so that you could get out into the city proper.

Definitely recommended for the first time visitor to Tokyo though. One thing though - you can't use the pool if you have visible tattoos (unless you cover them up) it's a cultural thing but that applies to all hotels

Having stayed at the Westin Tokyo a couple of times, I decided to try the Sheraton Miyako on the last business trip since it is the only other option to stay within the SPG network. Overall, I was a bit dissappointed with my experience and am probably not going to come back here again.

The hotel has a lot going for it. Though located in a quiet residential neighborhood, it has convenient bus transfers to Narita and is about a 2500 yen cab ride away from the financial district or the Ginza shopping district. It has 3 restaurants on property - a Chinese, an American, and a Japanese. All serve great food with attentive service. In general, the service in the hotel is considerate without being overbearing.

However, it is an old property in the midst of a rehab, and that leads to pretty uneven standards. A few examples include:

1. Some rooms are remodeled with newer bathroom fixtures, LCD flat panels, digital AC controls etc. But if you are a SPG elite like me and have the misfortune of being "upgraded" to a deluxe room in the SPG floor, you may get a 20" tube TV, antiquated manual AC controls that may not work well, and bath room fixtures that show their age.

2. Internet in room was fast and free. But no in-room wifi. You have to drag the wire to put in a LAN connection. And the wire is not long enough to let you work anywhere except the desk. There is a quota of LAN users that fills in rather quickly every evening, and one evening I was basically told I have to wait for others to get out of internet before I could get in.

3. While the Narita airport bus is great, the hotel is not on the Haneda airport bus route. Haneda is the airport closer to Tokyo that a lot of business travellers prefer given that it is 20 minutes way from the city as opposed to Narita which is 90 minutes away.

4. This is more of a personal thing. I need to catch up on the financial markets when I am on the road, so having Bloomberg or CNBC is great. The only English channel available here was BBC. No English entertainment channels as well. (This was probably more of a function of the Analog TV with a 14 channel restriction)

The room rates alone make the Sheraton Miyako Tokyo Hotel a good option for someone seeking the comfort and convenience of a city hotel without the cost that's typical of a such a property. The room rates, however, are the only discounted feature. The hotel's restaurants and services are extremely expensive. Even more perhaps than you might expect of a Sheraton branded property. Still, the Miyako Tokyo is clean, well maintained, and provides excellent service. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained.

The hotel concierge service is a highlight. All of the representatives spoke very good English and provided terrific service. We were given lots of maps with explicit directions and guidance. They provide Japanese taxi cards for easy access to various sites and assisted with dinner reservations and train schedules.  

There is a free shuttle that runs every 15 minutes until 10pm to Meguro Station where you can catch the Metro or JR trains. Each morning to 10am another shuttles will take you to Shinagawa Station whee you can catch the Shinkansen bullet train. The  metro station is a 5 minute walk and sits on both the Toei and Tokyo metro lines which provide several easy options into Tokyo.

You may have heard that cash machines are a challenge in Japan since many local banks do not take American debit or credit cards. The best option to beat this tend is to use an international bank machine such as HSBC or Citibank which are open 24 hours. Another option is a post office which is just across the street from the metro station, about 5-10 minutes from the hotel.

All in all, the Sheraton Miyako Hotel is a good option for your stay in Tokyo.

I stayed here for two nights and had a very typical Sheraton experience -- nice property, good room (albeit a little small by US standards), decent amenities, good service. While it's certainly not a "luxury" hotel, it's a very safe bet for anyone looking for a reliable hotel in Tokyo. While the hotel is not in the heart of Tokyo's tourist districts, it's a short walk to the subway and there's a shuttle bus that runs to Meguro station on the JR line (i.e., you can get anywhere you want to get to pretty easily).
