Grand Prince Hotel Akasaka
Do Drink the Water!
No need to buy bottled water in Japan. The Japanese pride themselves in providing everyone with clean free water. It is one of their priorities of life! I hope you like rice, for it is served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While staying at the Akasaka, you will be treated like a rock star, because of all of the attention you will receive from the very professional, and very young staff. Get ready to see all sorts of gadgets. There are pastel colored clothes irons that are wireless, hand dryers that have the force of a small typhoon, toilet seats that are heated and that flush and lower itself automatically. The travel desk personnel are very helpful and are multilingual. They provide you with all sorts of free maps and make all of the arrangements for your travel inside and outside of Tokyo. Do not enter the businesses or hotels with a wet umbrella. There are umbrella stands that provide you with a free lock, so that yours will be waiting for you when you are ready to leave. A fresh unisex Yukata (summer kimono) will be placed on your bed every AM, and new toiletries supplied such as: razors, hair brushes, toothbrushes plus the usuals are provided daily.
If you decide to purge your luggage of unwanted items, once you are ready to check out of your room, leave what can be used behind on the bed or desk so that the maid may enjoy. If you drop it in the wastepaper basket the maid must throw it out with the garbage. One woman's trash is another woman's treasure!

Prices for the rooms vary but I had a fabulous room. It had a separate bedroom and bath. The main room was very spacious and contained a dining room, living room, entertainment center and a second bath and shower. The view was excellent from my room about half way up the tower.
Service was impeccable and it was a delight staying at this hotel.
I’ll be back.
Unique Quality: I loved the main room where I could work and eat in comfort away from my bedroom.
