Staff and guests

The hotel staff was helpful and polite. The staff at the restaurant and the pool were very friendly as well. In most cases, when the business hours are approaching, cleaning up starts and the attitude of the staff tends to be awkward, but that was not the case at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel pool. I swam until the last minute of business hours and used the shower slowly without panicking. Service was wonderful.

There were guests staying from all over the world at the Annex Tower. Although there may be because of the Rugby World Cup, I saw many Westerners. I also saw businessmen staying.
