Best/Cheapest travel from NRT to Sheraton Miyako Hotel in Tokyo

I am looking for the best route from the airport to my hotel, Sheraton Miyako Hotel in Tokyo for 1 adult, 1 thirteen year old, and 1 nine year old. This is our first trip to Japan, and we are only staying for 2 nights. Also suggestions as to what to see in those 2 days.

There is a limosine bus from NRT directly to your hotel. See this site for schedules and full details.

http://www.limousinebus.co.jp/en/pla...hes/index/2/36

The service is door to door and tickets can be bought at the limosine bus desks as you exit customs in the entry hall. The workers speak English. They take yen only but you can exchange your dollars for yen at the bank window located a few desks away or at the ATM's in the hall.

Bus stops are right outside the doors and are very organized. The men and women that load you onto your bus will load your luggage on for you and at your hotel the doormen will take your luggage to your room so no need to hassle with the luggage and trains, taxi's, etc. with your children in tow.

See here for the limo and metro deal which will get you a two day metro pass virtually free that covers your subway rides for two days if you buy a round trip limo bus ticket at NRT only. This way you get to use the subway for free while you are in Tokyo.

There's a bus (Airport Limousine, http://www.limousinebus.co.jp/en/pla...hes/index/2/36). The advantage of the bus is that it goes from Narita to the Sheraton. Disadvantage is that it operates only 1x/hour at peak times, once every two hours the rest of the day, and can get stuck in traffic.

A good alternative (especially if you have to wait 30 mins or more for the bus) is the Narita Express train. Take the Narita Express to Shinagawa station, then take a taxi to the Sheraton. The taxi area is well-signed, but it would be a good idea to write down the name and (especially) telephone number of the hotel.
