This hotel is beautiful. I've stayed here twice and the location is superb if you're traveling through Tokyo Station which is literally right out the front door. The rooms are very nice, electronic window blinds and heated toilet seats. :-) Not kidding! This is Japan.
Having said that there are quirks here that I'm likely going to find another property for when I visit our Tokyo office.
1. The hotel does have smoking rooms. I was placed in one on my last visit. I don't smoke. There were no other rooms, for a week. Sigh.
2. I don't think this hotel is inexpensive and it doesn't look inexpensive. Just be prepared to pay.
3. The breakfast is not suited to western tastes, at all. If you like anything western for breakfast take a pass on the morning buffet. Go into Tokyo Station and hit Starbucks for a bagel.
4. While the hotel had my CC on file, they asked me to come down to the desk four days into my week long stay to approve charging my card for nights to date. I've not experienced this before especially since I registered and agreed to the total for the week.
In summary the hotel is very nice but it can't begin to compare to a number of other properties I've stayed in London, New York, Singapore, Los Angeles etc. I'm going to find alternatives and I'll post my findings then. Travel safely.
