Hilton Diamond, guest for 4 nights November 2013. this is not typical of the vast array go hotels I have stayed in Japan
The room size is fantastic, was getting sick of dog boxes in most Japanese hotels, location near airport, gym is amazing, breakfast quite good, plenty of seating, happy hour a good deal approx $USD 5 for Kirin beer and $USD 5 for house wine, convenient location to NRT, Narita township not far away is a great little town to visit of you have a few hours to kill, what else? I can't think of anything else. TV was good, finally a hotel in Japan that has CNN and BBC and a few other english speaking channels. Loads of desk space in my room, o great to work from. The bed was fantastic and the new linen is a winner. The bathroom toiletries in the small bottles ( rather than huge tubs in most cheap Japanese hotels )
The not very good:
The flight crew guests, I think they are the only other guests, '000's of them from all walks of life, lots of lisping going on, a lot of noise from them throughput the place especially the Americans, really loud, wow!
The internet speed is ridiculously SLOW, for a Hilton and for Japan, this is by far the worst, I think there are so many Yanks trying to use at the same time, it is crazily slow.
The staff are strange, having been there for 4 days, I honestly can say I never saw one smile, not a single one, which is so untypical of my experiences around Japan. Japanese can't be helpful enough, wonderful people in fact, but not here. I guess when they are dealing with self-important flight crews ad-nauseum day in and day, out they have any politeness beaten out of them. There was one exception, a senior wait staff lady was absolutely delightful.
I had a car, they tried charging me ¥ 400 every time I went in and out of the cark park, I insisted it states ¥ 400 per day and after much hissing they agreed, bit annoying arguing with me about it but hey, what was I to expect from this lot.
