I do not exaggerate when I say that everything about my week long stay at the CHT was perfect. The staff practically fall over themselves to be polite and helpful, the location is great, the rooms are massive and extremely comfortable (the awesome showers alone are worth a mention), the views are utterly spectacular (we had a room on the Imperial Palace/Diet building side; the lights of the Ginza skyscrapers at night are beautiful). I didn't sample any of the restaurants but went to several in the nearby streets, some posh ones and some izakayas, and they were all lovely.
It's in a nice neighbourhood, busy enough to not be dull but quiet enough to be peaceful. So quiet, in fact, that on our last evening in Tokyo we were perfectly alone under the cherry blossom trees when I proposed to my girlfriend in front of the shrine behind the hotel.
When I go back, I'll book this place in a heartbeat. Best hotel I've ever stayed in.
She said yes, by the way.
