I won't spend much time discussing the hotel or the room (well-documented in previous reviews). There is nothing about either the hotel or the rooms to deter one from booking at least once for a special getaway, and you will likely get hooked on their absolutely fantastic service. I always get the impression that if I manage to press the elevator call button myself, the staff feels they have failed to get to it first; they are that attentive to service. In fact, the hotel e-mailed me, a few days ahead of our stay, asking about the age of our daughter (6) in order to prepare some child-appropriate amenities, and they did not disappoint. Child-size robe, slippers, personal toiletries kit, and a cool little strawberry plate with various sides for dipping were just a few of the nice touches provided. Our rate included breakfast at Girandole, which still remains one of the best hotel breakfasts I've ever had. The view always seems to keep us at the table for an hour or so, sipping our third or fourth coffee. The pool is also a must-do each stay and is incredibly relaxing, especially very early or very late when few, if any, guests are there.
The shuttle from Shinjuku is our primary way of getting to the hotel, but its pickup location can be tricky for first-timers: Head for West Exit and go up first set of stairs you find to street level. Observe the elevated walkway that takes you over the central taxi/bus stand in front of the station. The Shinjuku L Tower is directly across from the large Odakyu sign and is the building the walkaway takes you to. Take the walkway directly to the opposite side of the station. You should see a Starbucks on the ground level of the Shinjuku L Tower as you get close. Take the stairs down on your right and the pickup point is indicated by a sign next to the building (about a hundred feet to the right of the Starbucks entrance). They pickup at 10, 30, and 50 past the hour.
Cherry blossoms are in full bloom and a trip to Shinjuku Gyeon Park is practically a requirement in spring. We spent a day at Tokyo Dome City (take JR Line from Shinjuku to Suidobashi) which is full of family entertainment. Cosplayers are out in full force here, which is a sight to behold. We've stayed at the Park Hyatt Tokyo three times now and have yet to be disappointed, and probably never will...
