Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel
Great hotel for Tokyo Disney Resort
Tokyo Disney Resort has 3 Disney-owned hotels and there are several "Official Hotels", which are not owned by Disney but located on Disney property. The Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel is one of them.
As you can imagine, the 3 Disney-owned hotels are very expensive. They ranged from 30,000 yen to over 100,000 yen per night. As we were already staying at the Park Hyatt Tokyo prior to this, we didn't want to splurge again. I found Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay Hotel to be an excellent compromise. It was less expensive than the Disney-owned hotels but still very convenient to the theme parks. It's located DIRECTLY across from the monorail entrance so we took the monorail every morning to the parks.
The hotel rooms were excellent. We had a lovely view of the 3 wedding chapels and the bay. There were a couple of on-site restaurants and we had breakfast at the cafe in the lobby.
Excellent option right next to Disneyland
I'm not going to review Disneyland on VT, as there are more than enough reviews as it is, but we stayed at this hotel, taking advantage of an excellent value package they had, with tickets to Disneyland and an excellent buffet breakfast included.
Although we were living in Tokyo at the time of our visit, staying at this hotel (actually in Urayasu, Chiba) rather than staying at home made things a lot easier with a 2 year old to spend more time in the park, rather than battle through crowded trains during Tokyo rush hour!
The hotel pool is excellent and there are plenty of other facilities there to keep one busy. This is one of the best hotels I have stayed at in Japan, and I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to stay by Disneyland.
Directions: Easiest way is to get the Disney resort Line from Maihama station to Bayside Station.
Great location for Disneyland & Tokyo trip
Stayed three nights here to explore Disneyland and Tokyo. We reserved a triple room, which was perfect in size and amenities. It actually had 3 wider single beds and a smaller single bed(4 beds) I requested by email a water view to Tokyo Bay which they arranged. The best rate for this reservation was found direct on the Sheraton website. All other internet hotel booking sites were dearer than the 17,000 Yen /per night ($204 AUD)we payed for the room. This is a bargain for the quality of the hotel and its location. So look direct on the www.starwoodhotels.com website rather than book through an internet booking site.
From Narita airport , best option is the Limousine Bus which will drop you off at the front door of the hotel,but this stops running at 5pm which is crazy because a lot of flights get in after this time. We arrived after 5pm so we caught the Narita Express to Tokyo then the train to Maihama.But its a crap 2 hour journey hauling luggage from airport to hotel, best take the bus if you can.On the return to the airport we caught the limousine bus, its so much easier than doing the train thing.Read my transportation tips for all the information on these journeys. At Maihama station take the Disneyland exit and turn left after exiting to get to the information /welcome centre and get brochures, maps and the shuttle timetable. Then go to the Shuttle waiting point and a mickey mouse bus will take you to the hotel. See the pictures for a guide.
Probably the best thing about this hotel is the free shuttle bus. It's so easy to jump on and get to Maihama to eat or drink or catch trains and get into Tokyo and suburbs. The shuttle bus picks up at the front door of the reception level and it only takes about 5 mins to get to the station. First bus is 8:07am to Maihama station,then every 20 mins for rest of the day. First bus back to hotel from Maihama is 8:15 am, then every 20 mins for the rest of the day. Last bus to Hotel at night is 21:35 pm.
If Disneyland is included in your Japan trip then this hotel is a good location as it's also easy to get to tokyo and beyond. Take the Mickey Louse bus to Maihama station.
From Maihama station take the train on the Keiyo line to Tokyo, this takes 15 mins train time.Look for the train with the red stripe on the carriages. Tokyo is 5 stops away, ( Kasai, Shin-Kiba, Shiomi, Etchujima, then Tokyo)Then you need to walk 18-20 mins to get to the main tokyo platforms and from there you can get on any other lines to get around. A good line to get onto is the green Yamanote Line ( carriages have a green stripe on them). This line runs in a circle and takes in lots of the main touristy sspots like Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ueno etc.
Unique Quality: RECEPTION:
As soon as you walk in the front doors turn left and reception is on the left side. Directly across from reception is the Toastina/Pannini cafe.
There is the Toastina cafe directly opposite from reception on the ground floor. Its good enough to get a coffee and a snack at ,if you're desperate. I didn't try the breakfast at Toastina or any of the hotel restaurants, but I saw a guy there all set up for omelette making, looked interesting but i've had omelettes at home so I caught the shuttle bus and went over to Mahiama station area for breakfast and coffee, that's where all the locals are eating, and I always try and eat as the locals do.Next floor down is the breakfast/lunch buffet restaurant. Didn't try it because there is much better food, choice and value at the Ikspiari shopping centre opposte Maihama station.(See picture). But to give you a guide the breakfast buffet is 3300Yen ($39 AUD) lunch buffet is 3500 Yen ($42 AUD) and dinner buffet is 5200 Yen ($62 AUD). There is a Japanese restaurant next to the Internet room but its pretty pricey, 12,000- 17,000 Yen for a meal ($ 144 - 204 AUD).
On the ground floor diagonaly opposite reception , between the Toastina cafe and Japanese restaurant is an Internet area providng free comuters and internet access. Its great for researching places to go and see and the free printer is handy to print out the info and maps you might find.
Just on the right hand side as you enter the ground floor / reception area, there is a desk from which you reserve and buy tickets on the limouisne bus to the airport. Make sure you reserve and buy your seats the day before.You then have to go downstairs to catch the bus.
A big thank you to the room ladies. I needed help with the combination on the safe and they were so eager and prompt in getting help, they actually ran up the hall to get help. It was amazing.
Directions: Is in the Tokyo Bay area of Tokyo. This is a great location to stay at if you're doing the Disney land thing.
