A little out of the way, but great...

Having never been to Tokyo before, we weren't aware of the distance from Tama. It takes around 40-60 minutes on a train to reach Shinjuku Station, so it is a little bit out of the way. Still, a beautiful hotel with everything that you would hope to expect. Many restaurants and convenience stores within a one minute walk, as well as a Starbucks.
For Hello Kitty fans, there is a Hello Kitty theme park/castle nearby, so it is cute to see many of the girls dressed up on their way there.
Rooms were a decent size and very clean, with the smart toilets you come to expect from Japan. As with most places in Japan, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The plaza surrounding the hotel is absolutely gorgeous (see attached photo of when it was raining at night), and not overly busy.
