Shinagawa is one of the two stations in Tokyo that the Shinkansen bullet train stops. It's also on the Yamanote JR circular line that reaches to many highlights in Tokyo such as Shibuya, Shinjuku, Akihabara, and Harajuku. This hotel is about five minutes walk from Shinagawa station, so the access and time saved was significant. I was able to literally walk out of Shinkansen, check in, and started the night out in Tokyo.
The hotel has been newly renovated, and the service focuses on sleeping, rather than spas or in-house shops. The rooms are simple, clean, and average size for Tokyo (a bit small). Once you walk out, though, there are many restaurants, bakery, shops, an aquarium (!), movie theaters, right there, and train takes you to lots more. The front clerk was a bit unfriendly, but spoke pretty good English. I got a good rate with advanced reservation (a few months before the stay) on the internet. Will stay there again.
