“A 5 star military hotel!!!!”
Reviewed April 3, 2006

A while back I wrote a review of Hale Koa hotel in Honolulu. This was a hotel which I reported as highly overated in the trip advisor reviews. This review is
of another lesser known military hotel in
Tokyo. It is called the New Sanno hotel and it is quite simply head and shoulders above any other military hotel I have stayed at. The Hotel is situated in the Azaba district in Tokyo which is a very nice residential area. The Hotel is within easy walking distance (a few blocks), to the Hibaya subway line (The one you want to be near in order to easily access the most popular attractions/districts in Tokyo). In addition the hotel is within walking distance to a nice French bakery (superior to anything I ever experienced while vacationing in Paris), plus an Italian restaurant which offers eat in and take out Pizza which is as good as or better then anything I experienced while staying in
Motto St Anastasia in Sicily (My highest complement).

Anyway, the hotel itself is very attractive upon entry with rich dark cherry paneling and marble wherever you look. I would compare it to the finest Westin properties. Within the hotel are three restaurants including one Japanese (similar to Benihana of Tokyo, but much much more high end); one super luxury restaurant - The Wellington (intended to rival the finest gourmet restaurants available anywhere); and a family style restaurant. The hotel also includes a Navy exchange where you can purchase Japanese gifts at very reasonable prices; a sundry store for wine, beer, liquor, soda, snacks, etc...a bar lounge, nice workout facility with a pool, whirpool, and swedish spa; and a coffee shop which services Starbucks and fine pastries.
The room I stayed in was a single which featured a single bed, bathroom with modern fixtures, television with all the armed forces network channels, a small refrigerator, desk, a wall controlled music control, and thermostat. There are other rooms at the hotel which I understand are much nicer including a few Japanese theme ones. The price I paid was only $58 per night (no tax). Based on my numerous stays at hotels throughout the U.S. and abroad, I would estimate a stay at a commercial hotel of this quality would cost approximately $200 per night - easily. Highly recommended!!!!!
