“Wedding central!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Stayed for one night to attend a western-japanese wedding.
First of all, transportation to the hotel is very very convenient, as it sits next to the Daiba overground station (this is a relatively new line and even just the ride is worth it!) - we thought of taking a taxi but in the end it was easier and cheaper to travel by tube.
Rooms are pretty average European style (later found out that we had a very large room by Tokyo standards), nicely equipped bathroom (both extremely clean). Very nice views of Tokyo bay.
We arrived at 11am and were able to check-in by paying a 5,000Y supplement.
It looks like this hotel has made a speciality of weddings, with chapels, waiting rooms, and reception rooms. It was all very nicely organized and timed with the usual impeccable japanese service.
We did not try any of the restaurants due to the short stay, but if the wedding reception is a measure of the French restaurant here, it must be very good (and we are French!!), absolutely fantastic creative, light dishes with a Japanese twist. Desserts were absolutely excellent.
The hotel is very very big with large halls and hallways, escalators, and feels a bit overwhelming and impersonal. In addition to wedding parties, it seemed quite full of families.

Situated right next to Fuji Television, in the middle of Daiba district in Tokyo.
As I was on business I took their special rate, checking in after 8PM and checking out before 8 AM restrictions.
This suited my schedule and was rewarded with a great double bed room with nice bathroom, large comfortable bed in a comfortable sized room.
However if I was a tourist I am not sure if I would have been so satisfied.
This is due to the fact the the Daiba district is a district in its own and quite far from central Tokyo.

Visited over 6 times through 2000 - 2005.

Hotel had changed its name from 2008. As its a former Meridien, its supposed to be one of the classical European taste hotel but if you compare its interior with the Meridien in London, you can see that its like a fake/cheaper version. The hotel is nothing similar compared to Westin Yebisu or Ritz Roppongi (two of the other european taste hotels).

I have visited few times, all of them on the higher floor and got a great view of Odaiba. I am not sure about the restaurants inside the hotel as I have only had dinner in Star Road on the 30th floor. It was supposed to be the special occasion dinner but I remember that I was quite disappointed with the food - but the view from this restaurant was amazing. The thing about this location is that you do not get a real good food in Odaiba so you do not have much choice than to eat inside the hotel.
Odaiba itself if not the romantic development area. It is targeted the kids/younger couples and families with kids. It is more of a huge amusement spot. However, if you do not want to stay in the central Tokyo and want to have a bay-front view, this could be the choice.

I will start by saying I did not stay at this hotel, but rather came specifically to see the rooms decked out in "Gundam style" (for the uninitiated, don't confuse this with "Gagnam style" - Gundams are giant mech robots from Japanese anime.

As I learned from the very helpful and attentive sales management staff, the hotel had quietly branded itself in Japan as a venue that specializes in designing limited-engagement “custom rooms” for clientele with a certain fan base. Designers and promoters of certain anime and other entertainment properties will contact the hotel to create these rooms, and will often lend props and other materials. The attention to detail is astonishing – from wall art to bedsheets, from coasters to the toilet-seat cover, absolutely every aspect of these rooms remain “in theme.” The two Gundam suites (each representing a different opposing faction from the anime series) include special edition models, decals on the windows that give the illusion that spacecraft are flying around outside, and even, in one case, a Gundam cockpit with flashing lights and noises. Such atmosphere is not cheap: you're talking $300US a night if not more. But if you are the consummate fan (and if you, unlike me, would not be terrified of somehow marring or wrecking these beautiful things), this place is a find. Like many things in Japan (and unlike the crass blaring advertisements of the rest of Odaiba), this is something kept very quiet...you just have "to know" it exists...and so now you do!

Again, my rating represents the artistry of the rooms, and the friendliness of the sales staff...I did not stay the night so I can comment on nothing else.

This is one of the nicest hotels that I have stayed at in the past year and that includes some Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton's. The view is absolutely incredible. I am on the 20th floor. Wifi in the spacious room. Beds are nice and soft. I have noticed that most of the hotels that I have stayed at in Japan the last 2 weeks have had some fairly hard beds.
There are malls galore with food courts just outside our front door. My teens could spend days there. Subway station just downstairs as well. Larger than average gift shop downstairs that is open 24 hours and the prices are shockingly reasonable. I always just assume that I am going to pay through the nose at hotel stores.
I would highly recommend this hotel and would happily book it again.

Awesome location within close proximity of 3 malls which offer plenty of shopping and dining options. Rooms are spacious and has a stunning view overlooking the bay. Hotel has all the amenities of a 5 star establishment including the Japanese special loos with heated seats, spray and deodorisers.

This hotel is located conveniently near the business area at Daiba, right next to Daiba station. I come here to attend an exhibition and it appears to be a good choice except:
1. Hygiene - found 3 cockroaches crawling beside my bed over the 2 nights.
2. Staff could not understand my complaint about the bugs in English.

As a 5 star hotel aimed to serve international visitors, I believe the management can do better than this, especially the hygiene part. I was really surprised to find them in a hotel in Japan.
