This hotel is in a good location, connected to the main JR route for the bullet trains and the loop line which is the easiest means to navigate the main sites in Tokyo. There is a complex of shops next to the hotel which is useful. Owing to its location it did seem to mainly be a business hotel but... More

Albeit pricey, very nice hotel, with staff that have excellent attention to detail. Very good buffet breakfast that also has western food choices. Of note, the buffet offerings were identical for the 6 days I was there, so a little variety would have been nice ( although their omelettes are excellent). Very, very well situated, next to the Shinawaga station.... More

One of my favourite hotel in Tokyo. Modern with all latest equipment, all rooms are on top of a business building. The location is very close to Shinagawa station. The service is outstanding as you can expect in Japan

Stayed 5 nights last week for business, working with the business and sales teams in Japan. The location at the Shinagawa train station is ideal. We met our contact every day at the hotel, took a few steps to the station and off we went. Couldn't have been better. The rooms are modern and clean. The bed was very comfortable.... More

This high-end hotel is conveniently located right next to the JR Shinegawa Station, and it's only a short walk (or taxi ride) from the famous Ginza shopping strict. All the rooms have a nice view as the hotel occupies floors 26 through 32.

I stayed here for one night from 3-4SEP2016. I was with my girlfriend who is an IHG Spire Elite and although we were put in a fine room, I am always perplexed that IHG hotels don't give all their elite members free breakfast.

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighborhood Profile
Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with luxury residential buildings and the scene is constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama park and Togoshi park are great places to see beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa and Ebara are very popular. It's a great place to get in touch with the old Edo atmosphere on a pleasure boat cruising along the canal. The neighboring area around Gotanda station is a study in modern contrasts filled with unique restaurants and a lively nightlife.
