Overall, this is a good hotel but you certainly don't feel like you're in Japan. The design is more Versailles. Kind of like "We want to look really fancy" So, lots of gold and fancy designs. Not at all sleek or modern- felt a bit like Paris Las Vegas or something.
Speakign of which- your view could be (if you are in the front) of a fake looking palace that houses the Joel Roubechon restaurant across the street. It all adds up to a strange "fakey" feeling to the whole place
The room is a good size, which is notable for Tokyo.
Location wise- the pro's are: a mall across the street (and connected via underground) that has a department store and several places to eat. Also there is a Starbucks right there.
The con: a long walk to Ebisu train station. The good part is that it is via a system of hallways some with moving sidewalks, so it makes the walk easy to navigate and quicker.
If you are coming to Tokyo to immerse yourself in the culture and you want to feel like "wow, I'm in Japan", this is definitely NOT the place to come to.
