I just returned from a family vacation at the Sheraton Miyako Hotel Tokyo for 7 days. Check-in was quick and the room lived up to my expectations. We stayed in the Deluxe rooms which I believe are the same size as the standard rooms but with updated bathrooms.The rooms were pretty standard but extremely clean. The deluxe rooms were roomy in comparison to many Japanese hotel rooms and came with a lounging chaise, desk with 2 chairs, LCD TV., 2 twin beds and of course bathroom with a bidet. We had no issues with Wi-Fi and were able to connect our lap top, iPhones and iPad without any issues. There was no in-room safe and they were only located at the front desk. Luckily, since I read reviews that most of the rooms did not come with a safe, we purchased a cheap, portable lock box from Amazon prior to coming and locked up the items in the safe when out of the room and stored the safe in our luggage. Also, room was not sound proof but putting in ear plugs at night worked like a charm.
We only used room service twice (when we arrived and the last day). The food was okay but very pricy. 6,600 yen for burgers, fries, drink and slice of cake for 2 people. There is a 7-11 down the hill from the hotel, which we used to buy food as well as drinks and stored in the in-room fridge. There are also several Lawson's and Family Mart convenience stores that you can go to and load up on salads, fruits, snacks etc. For hot meals, you can go to the smaller restaurants near the hotel and pick-up a bento box or ramen for about 700 yen.
The hotel is located in a residential area and there is not much to do but it is a nice rest from the more chaotic areas of Tokyo such as Shinagawa and Shibuya. The hotel has a shuttle bus that will take you to the smaller Meguro train station as well as the bigger Shinagawa station (last shuttle goes out at 10:00 am for this station). Make sure to buy a JR Rail pass before you leave for Japan, which will allow you to ride to other destinations such as Osaka, Kyoto, Yokohama, etc. Also, once at the train station, you can purchase Suica passes at station kiosks. These train cards will provide you with unlimited transportation on the Tokyo subways. The Suica passes are re-loadable and can be used at vending machines and convenience stores as well. We used both the JR rail passes and the Suica cards at least 6 times a day, so we definitely got our money's worth from the purchase.
When I return to Tokyo, I will definitely stay at the Sheraton Miyako again. I was debating whether we should stay at a pricier hotel but did not regret my decision. You will spend most of your time sightseeing, that it doesn't make sense to pay for a hotel with more bells and whistles that is only going to be used as a place to rest at night. Also, the hotel staff always went above and beyond to help with directions and any questions that we asked; which made for a pleasant stay. Use the money saved by staying at the Sheraton for extra souvenirs! Travel tip: Bring a very, very good pair of walking shoes. Between walking to our destination from the train stations and the different tours, we logged 6-7 miles each day.
