Stayed at the Palace for two nights in December and it proved a wonderful choice. It is one of the most Japanese of Tokyo's luxury hotels (compared to some of the more "internationalised" brands like Shangri La, Peninsula, Mandarin Oriental, or Park Hyatt) and in my view has some of the most prettily decorated rooms of all in a sober and classy modern ("Westernised") Japanese style.
The location is excellent, overlooking the Imperial Palace gardens and by the lovely shopping of Marunouchi, and about 10 minutes walk from Tokyo Station (Marunouchi North exit is best) and 15 from Ginza. A walk or jog in the palace gardens is a wonderful attraction in its own right!
I was staying in a balcony room, and while it was a bit cold in the winter it must be a fabulous treat when the weather is milder. The bathrooms are wonderful with the wet area (bathtub and rainshower) overlooking the bay windows and the beautiful view to the Palace gardens. The rooms are large (about 45 sq m).
Breakfast in the lobby lounge was good with excellent pastries, amazing wood-fired toasts and freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices. The hot selection was a bit less convincing. Had lunch and dinner at both the Japanese (both general area and the rather famous sushi) and the Chinese restaurants and both were of outstanding quality. Service extremely kind and efficient, outstanding room equipment including pyjamas and enough bathroom amenities that you could probably forget your toiletry bag, etc. An excellent choice in Central Tokyo.
