This is perhaps one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.
We arrived around midday and the reception staff arranged an early check in for us with no fuss. We stayed in a Deluxe room with balcony on the 11th floor of the hotel. From our room we could see part of the Imperial Palace grounds, greenery in the parks in front of the hotel and the Tokyo skyline.
The view from the room basically summarized the essence of Tokyo for us. History and tradition through the Imperial Palace grounds, the skyline of the business districts symbolizing the business and shopping metropolis Tokyo is, and the nature that sprouts between buildings exemplifying the attention Japanese culture places on parks and gardens. A truly beautiful city view both during daytime and at night.
The room was functional and very spacious. We found the decoration tasteful with nice colors and with attention to detail everywhere. The balcony was on the small side but it overall added a feeling of more spaciousness to the room. The bed in the room was big and comfortable.
Hotel breakfast was very good and the terrace outside overlooking nature and the moat next to the hotel provides for a nice relaxed meal or tea/coffee. There are many restaurants in the hotel and even a small arcade for shopping and food at the basement of the hotel.
Service wise the hotel was great. The staff were discreet, courteous and polite and there seemed to be enough staff ready to help at all times in the lobby.
During our stay we visited the Imperial Palace gardens which are just across the road from the hotel. We also walked to Ginza, past the famous Tokyo station, a nice walk to the heart of Tokyo shopping.
Overall an excellent stay at Palace Hotel Tokyo. I recommend the hotel for a business stay or for a couples luxury sightseeing, shopping and eating Tokyo visit.
