This hotel is well positioned for those who need to use the JR lines. We used it for the last night in Japan, since we were arriving on a Shinkansen train and then leaving the next day on Narita express (both stop at Shinagawa before Tokyo).
It took us a while to walk to that hotel, though, as despite being opposite the station, the entrance is hidden behind a maze of shops. Be sure to ask for directions, we didn't and kept meandering for half an hour before we found the Maint Tower lobby.
Apart from the convinience, not much can be said about this giant place where we felt like battery hens. The check in line could rival that at the airport. No offer to help with our luggage. Zero personal attention. The room was OK, a corner twin with nice views of Tokyo Tower, but for AUD $300 a night, at least something should have been satisfying about that stay.
The decor of the Main Tower was outdated, seems that it has had its hey day in the 80s. Out of all hotels we had stayed at on our last trip through Japan, even including the smallest and the cheapest, that one had the worst hairdryer - just a small contraption built into the wall. As a woman with long hair, I appreciate a decent hairdryer! The shampoo dispenser on the wall looked dirty.
Nothing was wrong with that stay, don't get me wrong, it just had a feeling of a futuristic nightmare where one dwells in one of a soulless, generic sky cells and is being served by robots.
