Originally when I was planning this trip, I was going to go by myself to Tokyo and looked at several options for my hotel. I looked at hotels in the Shinjuku, Shibuya, and Chiyoda areas and came across several that were highly rated and recommended by other travelers. One of the hotels I wanted to stay at was the Shinjuku Washington hotel, but with my sister along now, she is pulling out all the stops for our hotel.
My sister is booking the hotel for the Courtyard Tokyo Gina Hotel by Marriott. Marriott, one of the largest and most upscale hotels has this one located in one of the most expensive areas in not only the country, but the world. Ginza is a very upscale area that is known for his expensive retail stores, nightlife, and overall high-end style.
Now the hotels I looked at during the beginning were nice, but not as nice as this one. It has a shuttle service that can possibly pick me and my sister up from Narita for about $50, making it a little easier than lugging everything to a bus or waiting for the train, then having to leave Tokyo Station and make our way to Ginza. If all the plans hold together, it will be very nice accommodations during our stay.
