OK guys - the mission should you choose to accept it is to find me a decent hotel for 2 in Tokyo for 17-20 July.
It looks like mission impossible now I've been trawling the websites and most things (every one recommended by lonely planet is full!) looks full. Unless its looking really shady or super far away from tokyo.
It's a super last minute trip so really appreciate all the help possible! I can't use the inn reservation center as well since its last than 5 days from check in!
Have you tried the Toyko Inn hotel chain http://www.toyoko-inn.com/eng/
We used their hotels extensively throughout Japan last year and very good value.
yes i have...its full as well
thanks for the help anthony!
I might have a few other ideas if I knew what price range you were looking at.
What would be the max in USD you would be comfortable with per night?

anyone stayed here before?
Ive used the Sakura Hotel Group on my Tokyo trip - but it was at their Asakusa Hostel rather than hotel - the hostel was by far the best hostel ive stayed in on my trip, very well maintained and very helpful english speaking staff.
I have some friends also using Sakura Group, for long stay apartments and they love the place so the group itself is well recommended.
thanks mate - i'm staying there now. so far so good. will let u know tmr how the room service / clean up is like :P
thanks all for the help!
