Fair to say that 5 Stars is punching well above my usual accommodation level when getting around Japan. 3 Star business hotels are the norm. The JR Metropolitan Hotel Marunouchi (Tokyo) has such a good reputation and is close to transport – in fact, right next to Tokyo Station. Forget the cost I say. Less inheritance for the kids.
Things are looking pretty special when Reception is on the 27th Floor. The grand foyer (is that what it is on the 27th Floor?) includes fantastic artworks and a very large model railway. And of course the usual super attentive and courteous staff.
The King Corner Room had luxurious furnishings complimented by an expansive view north and east across iconic places like Asakusa and the Tokyo Skytree, as well to the expanses of this great city.
A great place. Value for money? Yes certainly, especially for a couple of special nights at the start or end of a trip.
