Spent 5 nights here beg of April. Had always hoped to go to Japan during Cherry Blossom time and fortunately timed it just right. Biggest challenge in planning trip to Tokyo was finding a hotel that would take family of 4 in room (husband, wife, 2 girls ages 13 and 9). Location is important to me and even though it cost a bit more to take the monorail into Tokyo everyday, it was worth it. Daiba is a great area to be with kids with nice walkways along the water, and having the mall next door with many eating options was great. We are a very middle class "Holiday Inn" type family, so this was more luxurious than we are used to. We booked a triple room, which did have 3 beds but not much bigger than a single in Canada. I didn't think we could really afford to eat at the hotel but we got a great discount booking online, with breakfast included. I paid an extra 20.00 per night (per room) and the price at the hotel was over 30.00 per adult and 15.00 per child so it was well worth it. We were issued 3 breakfast vouchers per day, and I had assumed that my youngest daughter was free. The first day, nothing was said, but the second day, we were told we had to pay for her. I explained that she was included in the reservation and that we had not had to pay for her the first day and they said, fine, don't worry about it. The third day, nothing was said but a card was left on our table telling us to see the cashier on the way out. I asked one of the waiters about it, explaining that we had already handed in our vouchers and my daughter was included. He took the card away, and said don't worry about it. The fourth day, nobody said anything about her. So, it seemed like the staff didn't really want to have to deal with it and just ignored it when it was brought up. One of the best things about the internet is being able to read reviews from other people who have been there. So, we knew ahead of time that the kids couldn't use the pool and my husband and I wouldn't pay extra for it so we never even saw it. We also knew that the cost of a rollaway was outrageous, so we packed a sleeping bag and asked for an extra pillow and blankets upon arrival. My youngest daughter thought it was kind of cool to sleep on the floor and the room was extremely clean. One note about the TV - yes, all the channels are in Japanese and CNN is dubbed but if you press the "bilingual" button on the remote control, it mutes the dubbing and you can listen to the original broadcast in English. Tokyo is not a very attractive city, but the view from our balcony was spectacular. We were glad to have a balcony and sliding door as the room always seemed hot, no matter how we adjusted the thermostat so we slept with the sliding door open a crack every night. Overall, it was a beautiful hotel in a great location and I'm glad we stayed there.
