Fodor's Expert Review Courtyard by Marriott Tokyo Station

2–1–3 Kyobashi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, 104-0031, Japan See on Map

Courtyard Marriott Tokyo Station is a centrally located hotel that’s ideal for the businessman or woman on the go. The rooms are simple, and the amenities few and far between, but the staff is helpful and all speak English, and the room rates are reasonable – especially for this part of town. Marriott members with Elite status will get the most out of this property with a number of freebees that comes with membership.

room

Tasteful, yet small, the rooms are painted in lime green or purple, with miniscule work desks and black & white checked chairs. There isn’t much in terms of views, but the real alarm clocks next to the beds is a nice touch.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The best part of this hotel is its proximity to Tokyo Station, which not only can get you around the city quickly, it’s also home to great bars, restaurants, and shops. Beyond the subway, you’re also down the street from Ginza and some of the best shopping in the city.

Restaurants

If you want mouthwatering wagyu, head over to Peter (10-minute walk) inside The Peninsula Hotel. If you’re a fan of fried food, don’t miss out on Michelin-rated Tempura Abe (11-minute walk).

Bars

After your perfect Peninsula piece of meat, stick around Peter (10-minute walk) where expert bartenders pour perfect cocktails. If whiskey is your jam, head over to the Tokyo Station Hotel where inside is Oak Bar with some of the rarest and best whiskeys around.

WHY WE LIKE IT

This hotel is great for the Marriott rewards traveler on the go. There aren’t a ton of amenities and the rooms are pretty small, but the hotel is set up for business types to eat, drink, sleep, and go. The hotel’s proximity to Tokyo Station makes it ideal for jetting around the city quickly and also for walking to some of Tokyo’s best bars, restaurants, and shops. Clean, simple, and with a very proficient English-speaking staff, weekday warriors will get just about everything they need.
