Perhaps because it is recently reopened or possibly the Frank Lloyd Wright background, the Tokyo Station Hotel is one of long lines. It doesn't matter whether it is the restrooms, elevators or certainly the lounges, don't plan to get in and out in a hurry or even slowly.
Though everything was new and shiny, our room was slightly larger than a closet at many of the grand old hotels. For what it is worth, the ceilings were very high. I kept picturing being in an experiment to see if vertical height made up for floor space, and for me it didn't. I like to be able to open a suitcase without forcing the other person to climb on the bed or stand in the bathroom. Detracting further from the overall experience was the view was of a side of a building. Perhaps we were just unlucky and got the only really lousy room, but we did not experience the truly minimal size elsewhere in Japan or even at the other Tokyo hotels and ryokans I stayed at during other trips. The good news is we were happy to stay there one night and now can choose not to stay there again.More
