We called this our 'home' and really didn't want to leave this place. Everything was great--the room clean and comfortable with a great view of the river and the Sky Tree. Modern and huge bathroom with plenty of amenities. We are Priority Club Platinum so we were on the Executive level with lounge access and free breakfast. Excellent service for breakfast but food was just OK with not many choices. It is located in a quiet area but that suited us fine. We enjoyed watching the wedding parties taking pictures on the promenade (there were many weddings at the hotel on a Saturday), watching the ferries loading and unloading passengers and cargos to the islands, walking to the temple and Tokyo tower. Right, there are not a lot of action in the area but you can still find little restaurants and fast food places, like Yoshinoya, etc. nearby. We visited both Japanese gardens nearby and totally impressed. We also took the boat ride from one of the Garden to Asakusa which was so much fun. Once we figured out the train and subway systems we were able to get every where we wanted with no problem. We had an excellent stay and totally enjoyed our two days in that area. The only complain that I have was we booked for three people using points but they still charged us extra when we checked in. But then because we are Platinum, we did not need to check out until 4pm. Yes, the lobby didn't "wow" us, but that is very minor. When we left the hotel, the doorman made sure that the taxi driver understood where we were going. Walking to the train station and subway station may take 5 to 10 minutes depending on how fast you go. There is a restaurant level (I tempted to say food court, but they are restaurants) on the basement of the building where the subway station is. Many choices for lunch but not sure how late they open til at night. Prices were very reasonable. We tried the noodle place where they made the noodles there. With language barrier, we just pointed at the pictures and the cook stuck his head out and turned to see what we were pointing. Very nice people there. Free Wi-Fi is available right outside the JR station but you'd have to stand there or sit on the steps. We just felt completely at home here and would definitely stay again.
