We just came back from Tokyo and were very happy with our 9-night stay at the Imperial Hotel. We were a little concerned initially after reading several comments about the Hotel being very old and worn out. However, it turned out our room (on the 10th floor of the new wing) was nicely decorated, very comfortable & clean, very spacious (30+ m2) with modern amenities e.g. remote control electric curtains. We were also impressed by their thorough evening turn-down service. Unlike the turn-down service at most hotels (which is just removing a few cushions on your bed and leaving you a piece of chocolate), the Imperial Hotel literally tidied up the room (for a second time) by emptying garbage bins, changing used towels and cups etc. Hotel staff were extremely polite & friendly. Concierge staff were very eager to help and I would like to thank Satoh-san for her great restaurant recommendation, and Ishikawa-san for helping us with our air ticket problem. This was the first time we stayed in this part of Tokyo, and we really liked the location. Metro station is right in front of the Hotel, JR station is a bit of a walk though (about 15-20 minutes). Food at the hotel is very expensive but there are many dining options around the Hotel and in nearby Ginza. There are a number of small cafes within a few minutes' walk from the back entrance of the Hotel where you can find very decent breakfast food for 1/5 of the price charged by the Hotel. The Hotel does charge for use of the gym, one way to avoid the charge is to join the Imperial Club, check out the Hotel website for (free) membership details, but apply well in advance.
