This chain has some great hotels at great prices (for Japan)(see my review of the their Roppongi hotel for similar info), with variations by location. These are Western style rooms -- small by American standards but more than enough and not teeny tiny. Good amenities are provided in the bathroom, as well as a pajama shirt if you want to use it. Rooms were quiet! Beds are a bit firm (that seems to be the norm in Japan) -- fine for me but maybe others would not like it. FYI Japanese outlets are same as US (no 3-prong though), so you will not need an adapter for any electric-powered devices. There's an ethernet connection in theroom; if you have a Macbook Air, be sure to buy the $30 adapter for your laptop so you can connect. Wifi available in the lobby -- but gets crowded. Location is good but not in a major touristy part of Tokyo -- easy enough to get to Shibuya, etc. via subway/train (taxis are quite expensive)(Shiodome subway station is in basement; monorail is across the way); if you really need to be smack in the middle of hustle and bustle, this location does not fit the bill. Area is newly developed and a mini business district -- very safe and lots of restaurants, etc. in nearby adjacent buildings (which you can walk to easily via the elevated path -- no cars!). But this part of Tokyo is a little culturally bland. That said, this hotel is very clean and new, and if you want to be in Tokyo but don't need to be immersed in traditional culture or busy nightlife, this is a great deal. Ginza is about a 10-15 minute walk away, which isn't bad! Free breakfast -- mostly Japanese style, and same every day -- better than nothing! BTW if you come from Narita and have luggage, it's easier to take the Airport Limousine bus to the Conrad Hotel and walk the 25 meters to the Villa Fontaine. If you take the Narita Express train to Tokyo Station, it will cost you about 5,000 yen more each way, AND you still have to make your way from Tokyo Station to the hotel -- probably at least a $20 taxi ride or a few bucks' subway trip (which is a huge pain if you have luggage of any size -- lots of stairs and walking!). I will definitely stay here again and again (and I definitely always take the Airport Limousine Bus!).
