After arriving at Narita Airport, we were exhausted. We stayed at ANA Crowne Plaze Hotel . It was the largest hotel we stayed at during our trip. In Japan when booking a hotel room, you will be charged per person per room. Typically, American hotels charge by the room. Japan usually has a limit on how many adults can stay in a room, commonly it is 2 adults per room (up to 2 children, ages can vary for each hotel). This made booking a hotel for my family a little difficult. I needed a room that accommodated 3 “adults” (my son is 18) that was near impossible, not to mention prices jumped up tremendously if a hotel offered a room for 3 adults. So we ended up with this gianormous room with three gianormous beds. We only needed 2 beds. But rules were rules.
Getting to the hotel from Narita Airport was a cinch. Just hop on their complementary airport to hotel shuttle, about a 10 minute ride. We waited at bus post 16 at Narita Airport Terminal 1. There is also a bus pick up at Narita Airport Terminal 2, bus post 25. Be sure to check the hotel for the times of hotel pickup and location for pick up. Schedules and pick up spots can often change. We asked the airport information counter for the hotel bus pick up information. Currently this is the ANA Crowne Plaza Narita Hotel bus pick up schedule.
Inside the hotel there is a convenient store, offering several sandwiches, onigiri, salads, curry dishes, many different drinks and snacks.

I’ve traveled to Tokyo several times, all of which after I landed, I would continue onward to Tokyo. Despite the fact that Tokyo is about 35 miles from Narita Airport, it could take a few hours by public transportation. So, this time I figured I wanted to relax and not stress on how to get to my hotel somewheres in Tokyo before dark.
How I Rated The Hotel
ANA Crowne Plaza Hotel was nice, nothing fancy. I would give it 4 stars. The hotel was clean and the bed was amazingly comfortable, our room was huge. Amenities are good, my only complaint was the fact we were forced to rent a 3 bed bedroom when we needed only 2 beds. Each bed is large enough for 2 adults. My husband and I shared a bed of course and my son used the other bed. But, as I mentioned…. rules are rules, but its ridiculous the hotel used the fact 1 adult per bed just to charge more money. We all had a great nights sleep and were up early to start our day heading towards Tokyo. We would stay here again.
