I have been visiting my friends and relatives in Japan for may years but this is one of the few times that I've experienced Tokyo in a different way. We decided to stay at this hotel even though it is not in central Tokyo. We have to take the automated Yurikamome train out of Shimbashi station ( which is kind of slow in Japanese standard) to Daiba to get this hotel which we first thought it would be an inconvenience. But to our big surprise, this area is different from the busy, cramped up, claustrophobic feeling you have at other places in Tokyo. It is wide open, with a great... I mean... amazing panoramic view of Tokyo. Hotel Nikko was superb and upscale though prices are in par or even lower than other super-expensive hotels in Tokyo. Rooms were clean and larger by Japanese standards. My family of 3 were able to stay in a triple room which they had plenty of. However if you check onto regular online hotel booking services, they may not have triple bed rooms available. No problem. With a simple call to Japan, even you do not speak a word of Japanese, you get a instant English speaking reservation desk and get you a fantastic rate. (Get one of those international phone card from Costco for 8 cents a minute to Japan). That how we got this room. Make sure you tell them you want the view of the Rainbow Bridge which includes the panoramic view although I think I remember, all the rooms face the nice view.
Breakfast was great and lots of variety and was included in our hotel package. However there are so many packages, so I cannot speak for everyone. There were many restaurants nearby especially inside the Aqua City building just next door. There are walkways for pedestrians only everywhere along the way, and even for miles to other parts of this man-made island.
Almost all the staff (except the cleaning staff) spoke some English and we felt comfortable and safe all the time. Because this hotel is not in central Tokyo, taxis may be hard to get. We had plans to visit Tokyo SkyTree early morning and so we reserved a taxi with the hotel valet the night before.. and voila! the taxi was waiting for us next morning as promised.
My wife and I stayed in countless hotels before, we never experienced Tokyo this way.
