My husband and I stayed at the Park Hyatt Tokyo for two nights in mid January 2013 on our way to a week's skiing in Niseko. I chose this hotel based on past Tripadvisor reviews and decided to treat ourselves to a Park King View room (corner room) with breakfast included and requested a high floor and Mt. Fuji views. We got both and much more. Our room was on the 47th floor and had fantastic 180 degree views over west Tokyo to Mt. Fuji (see photos).
The room was fantastic, not just because of the views but because it was spacious, extremely clean and very well appointed. The bed was very confortable. The bathroom a delight, with deep bathtub, separate shower and toilet, and walk-in robe. The toilet was a highlight with built-in bidet, seat warmer and auto-flush (very uncommon in Australia!!). The toiletries provided were very nice and there was a very well stocked mini-bar with fridge as well as a kettle and hotel provided tea, coffee, milk and sugar. Another great thing about the room was the remote controlled blinds on the windows - it was great in the morning to wake up and open the blinds to see the great views.
The hotel has a rooftop indoor heated swimming pool and gym which were outstanding. It's so cute, there is a pool attendant there who gives you dressing gowns, pool slippers, swimming caps and instructs you to shower before entering the pool. We attended the gym on our first morning there and saw Mt. Fuji appear in the distrance as the sun came up - it was just magic.
Breakfast was fantastic. The restaurant is on the 41st floor (ask for the private room table in the corner) so you get to enjoy your food over great views of the city. There was a choice of the buffet breakfast or the "healthy" breakfast. I tried both and both were equally great. The "healthy" breakfast has a health smoothie (your choice from list) as well as oatmeal, fruit, yoghurt and scrambled eggs. The buffet has everything you could possible want, both western type and Japanese. You can also order eggs to your liking.
We visited the New York Bar (on the 52nd floor) on our first night at the hotel and enjoyed a couple of very nice (and strong) cocktails. On our second night we had dinner at the New York Grill (book ahead of time or you wont get in and request table by the window) which was outstanding.
But the very best thing about this hotel is not any of the above. It is the quality of the service and the attentiveness of the staff. It is just amazing from the moment you arrive at the entrance to the hotel to the moment you leave. Words cannot do it justice and you just have to experience it for yourself to understand just what I mean.
If you want to check out this hotel for yourself watch the movie "Lost in Translation".
There are not too many negatives to this hotel - not even location as its very close (10 minute walk) to the subway/train line - but if I had to find fault I would say that because the hotel is situated within a three tower building it can be hard to find the hotel's entrance if you enter the building by the wrong entrance - which happened to us.
We have stayed in some very nice and exclusive hotels - but this is one of the best we have experienced. Definately worth a splurge! you wont regret it.
Tip - its cheaper to get a private car from the airport than a taxi. Don't book through hotel as this is much more expensive. We used Airport Transfers Narita (firstname.lastname@example.org) who were great and it only costs us 19,000 Yen each way.
