We used points to stay at the miyako in Tokyo and had a great time. We really loved the location in a quiet part of minato that was close to multiple rail stops, shops, and (important for our first night) karaoke joints. We used a suite night award for our upgrade and couldn't have been happier with our room. Only complaint is that the bathroom had a dirty feet smell...but it was contained to the bathroom, which looked perfectly clean despite the smell.

This hotel doesn't show at the top of some lists, most likely because it isn't in the trendiest area and it isn't new. But for the price it is a very good hotel. The rooms are large, quiet and clean compared to other places you could stay in Tokyo for a lot more money (Prince Megaplex). I stayed here because I wanted to be in Minato but didn't want to pay Grand Hyatt prices.
The Miyako is separated from the main JR lines but the hotel has 2 shuttle buses that run between the Meguro JR stop and the hotel on a very frequent basis. The hotel is just a few doors away from the Mita line. I thought it was very convenient to use the shuttle bus to JR or walk to the Mita line.
The food in the hotel is very pricey so it is worth walking the short distance up the hill to some restaurants (A great little sushi restaurant featuring Chef Saito and Nigiri Sushi plate for 1000 yen!!!) or you can take the free shuttle bus to the Meguro station and either eat there or ride to another destination.

I stay there from 7th to 10th May 2013. The hotel staff is extremely courteous and helpful. The rooms are well serviced and appointed. There are certain things that could be better about the hotel, though. We were about 20 people travelling on a business trip. We realized that the service was not consistent across rooms e.g some rooms had been provided with complementary water bottles while others had to buy water from the mini- refrigerator. Some rooms were provided with iron boards while others were not. Also, language could be a little bit of a challenge for non-japanese.
Cleartrip’s hotel ratings take into account numerous factors such as independent rating systems like FHRAI, media recognition and post-trip feedback from our customers. We make all attempts to keep this information up to date, but cannot guarantee service levels at the hotel to be consistent.
