I was there for a short stay in between 2 cities. I booked the special rate online and to my surprise it was value to money paid stay. Room was clean and crisp, not simply because of the renovation, but it was maintained very well. Front Line staff at the driveway was nice and friendly. Reception staff was polite and professional, but must say that they do not exude friendliness and warmth, which is probably very typical tendency in Japan as being polite, is focused more than being friendly. The room was small but the space was utilized very efficiently so you do not feel that it is small. Bathroom and amenity is gorgeous, I wish I could have stayed a bit longer.
Used bar and Sushi place. Again, bar server was polite and professional but did not feel the sense of warm welcome. Then we moved on to the Sushi Restaurant. We were very lucky to be able to get ourselves in that night. It is small 10 counter seats place but the head chef there was probably the most engaging and friendly personnel that we met in the hotel. Quality of the foods were immaculate, as well as the service. It was not a cheap dinner but it was worth it, and it was truly entertaining!
Overall, I had great time, and I may have just find another hotel on my list of top hotels in Tokyo.
