I had a quick trip to Tokyo last month and stayed at the Hilton Tokyo Narita Airport, which offered incredible value for the price. Here's my review for this installment of Road Warrior Tested. (Read more: Casual Service, Missing Amenities in United International First Class to Tokyo)
Date/Duration of Stay: Jan. 22, 2013, one night.
Room Type: I booked a Hilton Queen room listed as 269 square feet, but was upgraded to a Deluxe Plus room (377 square feet) at check-in due to my top-tier Hilton Diamond elite status.
Rate: I was a bit surprised by how low the rate of 8,000 yen (about $85 U.S. dollars at current exchange rates) was when I booked the hotel a month before arrival. The booking allowed for cancellation up until 6 p.m. the day of arrival. Non-refundable advance purchase rates were 7,000 yen at the time I booked.
Location: Located in the town of Narita, the hotel was a short 10 minutes away from Tokyo Narita International Airport. Complimentary shuttle service was offered to the airport and the nearby train station with service to downtown Tokyo (about a 1-hour trip).
Room Details: I was booked into room 1130 and found two bottles of complimentary bottled water along with packaged biscuits on the desk—an arrival amenity for being a Diamond member. What I immediately noticed were the barren walls, lacking any framed art. One wall adjacent to the queen-size bed had a few characters of Japanese script painted on it, but did little to liven up the room.
