I agree that it makes more sense to stay near the arport.

(Going from Haneda to Shinagawa via Hamamatsucho/Yamanote is like going from Boston to New York via Pittsburgh.)
I've asked you a million times not to exaggerate
IF you would go out, it is worth going to central area, if you are to shorten your sleeping hours and sure you can wake up
Rather than monorails, take Keikyu line directly to Shinagawa, which is closed to Sheraton Miyako. However, you would need a bit further to get to busy area, such as Roppongi, Shibuya, Shinjuku or Gotanda from there.
Enjoy your night.
Or spend a night in a nothing-special hotel at the airport
Thanks all. It looks like either the Haneda Royal Park Hotel or the Haneda Excel Hotel.
The Royal Park is in the international terminal ( which I am arriving and departing from),
while the Excel is in domestic terminal 2. So it seems the Royal Park will be more
convenient, unless there is a decided difference in quality. Any comments?

I would add an SPG option as well. It is probably easier than Miyako.
It is the Sheraton Yokohama. It is actually close to Haneda Airport, and can be reached directly by Keikyu train. No transfer needed and it only takes like 30-40 minutes. http://www.haneda-tokyo-access.com/e...inlinemap.html
The hotel is connected to the Yokohama train station by a sky-bridge. PM me for transportation tips if you indeed choose to stay there.
I have stayed at Royal Park Haneda as well. As others said, it is convenient to be next to terminal and with 24-hr restaurants nearby. I had Yoshinoya at like 4am before catching my morning flight. However the rates are expensive and the room is very tiny.

to the airport? If so, what would you recommend?
The Sheraton Towers Yokohama on the Keikyuu Line is very easy to get to; however, at that time (near midnight), the trains will get crowded from Kamata station. From the the airport, take the train to Kamata (aka: Keikyuu Kamata), transfer to a train going the other way to Yokohama station, the hotel is a small walk on the upper platform. Easy to find.
From here, in the morning, the train will be very fast to catch your flight on the return.
P.S.: There is also a JAL City Haneda Hotel that has free shuttle service to and from the airport too. Your room will be small with one pillow and a refrigerator, thus go to the AM/PM convenience store for nibbles. lol

The hotel in the airport international terminal is nice enough. Very small by American standards. Think a smaller Aloft room, but it was very nice, clean and modern and quiet. It was also very convenient. I battled the exact same decision and I opted to stay at the airport terminal hotel. It's a trek to get to the Miyako. If you aren't familure with the stations and the Japanese train system and don't read/speak Japanese I would say it's not worth the stress hassle.
