For the busy traveler, nothing can beat the convenience of being in a hotel directly above the train station. The five-star Marriott Associa Hotel occupies floors 15 through 52 of the tallest building in Nagoya, and has spectacular views of the city. The higher the room, the better the view, through prices also escalate. With 774 rooms in various configurations, there is a style that fits most visitors. Rooms have English television channels, which is not common in Japan. Children under 3 can stay free in the same bed with parents, and children 4-12 years old are an extra ¥4000.
There is a business center, fitness and exercise rooms, and multiple restaurants. Mikuni, a French restaurant, is considered one of the finest in Nagoya and reservations should be made months in advance. Check out the Sky Lounge on the top floor for panoramic views.
As well as the excellent hotel facilities, guests are close to the Nagoya Station shopping and dining areas. You can catch public transportation in all directions to explore the city or move on with your travels. Because the Marriott Associa lobby is on the 15th floor, the elevator may at first be hard to find. However, the clean, spacious, and quiet rooms are an excellent retreat from the crowds below.
The Marriott Associa Hotel is probably best suited for the busy traveler who wants to maximize the time in Nagoya, such as a business person or someone with an early shinkansen ride in the morning. Prices vary greatly because there are different specials and packages, booking.com has a excellent selection of specials which you can find on their website at http://www.booking.com/hotel/jp/nagoya-marriott-associa.en-gb.html?aid=370277
