We spent our last night in Japan at the Park Hotel for a last hurrah before flying back home. The room was beautiful, light and well laid out, with a window seat so that you can enjoy the view of Tokyo Tower, and if you're lucky, Mt Fuji. For the train enthusiast, you can look down and see the shinkansen running on the tracks below. If you are a very light sleeper, you may have a problem with the distant sound of the trains, but they didn't bother us in the slightest.
We didn't eat in the hotel as it was expensive, but there are several options nearby. The concierge gave us directions to a street full of izakaya next to Shimbashi station, which were quite complicated, so take the map offered. There are several cafes nearby for breakfast.
We found the staff to be very helpful, particularly the younger ones who all seemed to have completed their university education in New Zealand or Australia. We don't expect Japanese people to use anything but their own tongue, but English skills shown by the staff were exemplary.
NB: The Park Hotel is not a long walk from Shimbashi station. With luggage though, I would recommend arriving via Shiodome monorail, as the exit from the station goes straight past the entrance of the hotel, which is very easy. The neighbourhood was a little confusing to navigate at first.
