    Stayed at Hilton Tokyo in 2018. The lounge had an amazing breakfast. Best hotel lounge I’ve ever been to. We did get an upgrade to a junior suite as a Diamond. Access to the subway through the hotel without going outside.

    Conrad from this list. Park Hyatt is great but it’s pretty isolated out in Shinjuku. The only way I’d argue heavily for it is if you intend to end a lot of evenings in Golden Gai

    Hyatt Regency is the same issue, Grand Hyatt is a bit more central and there’s some good food right there but I don’t love Roppongi enough to stay there

    Of these, I’ve only stayed at the Grand Hyatt, but I recommend it without reservation (no pun intended!). We booked on points and as a Globalist got upgraded to a huge suite that had the added delight of being able to see Mt Fuji from our living room window on clear mornings.

    Phenomenal lounge with a myriad of food and beverage offerings; you could easily have a satisfying dinner in the lounge. Steps to the subway and an easy walk to the embassy area.

    The hotel also has a very high-end jazz club where it was fun to listen to the music while sipping a fine whisky and watching the wealthy local men trying to outdo each other with their trophy “dates”.

    Depends on your travel and lifestyle, if you are into more high-end shopping then Hyatt Centric Ginza or Conrad Tokyo, Hyatt Regency Tokyo, and Hilton Tokyo are in Shinjuku if you are into drinking and bars.

    I heard the Andaz has amazing breakfast but I missed my chance of booking there on points no more availability so we ended up at Hyatt Centric Ginza.

    I stayed in the Grand Hyatt, it was so small.

    If you are Platinum with Marriot, I suggest you look into Prince Shakura Hotel, with your status, you can have access to the breakfast buffet. It is the best that I ever have had. The executive lounge is amazing with breakfast and happy hours food, the swimming pool, steam room, jacuzzi are the best. Cross street from the Prince Sakura is the huge train station with bullet train access, and other trains.

    Best of all is the room … two queen-size beds, American-size room. You can say that only two people staying, but actually have 4 people staying. Two check in, and two come into the room later. 1 executive card access can bring in 1 guest, two people will have two cards, so 4 can come in.

    I’ve stayed at the Hyatt Regency 3 times. I think it only has a couple of suites, so the upgrades are only to a higher floor. The lounge was OK but not like other higher-ranked hotels. It’s a 10-minute walk to Shinjuku station. Not too much around the area except for office buildings.

    2 major pluses:

    The airport limo bus stops at the hotel and it’s category 4. For my next trip (my 6th) I’m staying at the Conrad and at the Hyatt Centric Ginza.

    I’ve seen great reviews for both of these. I like Ginza because it’s very pedestrian so many restaurants and shops, and also several metro stations. It’s a fancy area.

    Conrad. Closer to Ginza shopping and restaurants. Subway downstairs and if you can get access to the lounge. Well worth it.

    Conrad Tokyo. I’ve been upgraded to a suite each time I’ve stayed there and the lounge and breakfast are fantastic. Amazing pool and sauna after a hard day of touring.

    Easy access to two subway lines, walkable to Ginza, and a couple-minute walk to the Miyazaki clock.

    Rooms have terrific views almost no matter which direction you face.

    The Andaz usually gets top ratings for the hotel, but Toranomon Hills is a bit out of the way. I love the location of the Hilton/Park Hyatt/Regency because Shinjuku has connections to almost everything you would want. I have done the Hilton many times because I love the location and I love the breakfast for Diamonds, but here in a week I’ll be at the Regency because I wanted a suite for extra space.

    The Westin is not super convenient, it’s at Ebisu station, so you have to take a jaunt down the Hibiya or Yamanote lines to get somewhere. The Conrad is also a ride down the Yamanote to get places too.

    Some depends on what you want to spend too. The Andaz/Park/Conrad are all higher point properties, so at least with kids and trying to stretch those points, I always default down a tier or 2 to save for the next trip.

    I have done Hilton, Conrad, and Park Hyatt. Park Hyatt is so isolated. The Hilton was nice. Conrad is my winner, though the lobby bar closed so early

    Grand Hyatt for its location

    It isn’t particularly glamorous but Choice Hotels has lots of options in Tokyo and it is only 8,000 points a night. I just booked 6 nights for only 48,000 Membership Rewards points.

    The rooms are basically like Holiday Inn and include breakfast but it is super cheap and there are lots of options around town if you want a particular location.

    Plus as I said earlier, the points can transfer from Membership Rewards.

    Conrad, Andaz, Park Hyatt would be my ranking in that order.
