We spent 8 nights there and generally enjoyed the entire experience. I did my research using Tripadvisor, so when I got there I had notes and basic ideas of what was around. If you plan to go to Tokyo and stay inside all the time, then you may want to rent at ANA. This hotel provided the basics very well, and I will return there next year.
The check-in process was easy and I did remember to ask for the data cable for the internet. Wifi is also available, but it was spotty in my room on the 7th floor. The elevator is small, so if you are travelling with a family with luggage, the staff will offer to take up the rest of your luggage to your room.
You are given two room cards. One card must be placed in a wall holder so that the lights can be turned on in the room. Removing that card works like a "kill switch" for the entire room.
Breakfast at the Italian Restaurant, Osteria Pippos is good, but you may tire of it after a few mornings. They serve the same thing every morning. Yes, it is good, but you understand where I am going with this.
There are two supermarkets nearby. One is a 24 hour, Maruetsu Petit, and the other is out the hotel, turn left and across the street about 20 meters. They are not 24 hours, but the food is good and it is bigger than the other. You can get plates, knives and forks for the front desk. they will bring it right up. They also wash it and leave it there for your entire trip. There is a microwave and a small fridge for you to use.
If you need to change cash to Yen you have two options nearby. Firstly there is a post office within walking distance and they are closed at 4:00pm Monday through Friday. If you are wanting money on weekends or at night you can walk to the ANA Inter Continental and they have an ATM money changer. You pay about 10% extra when compared to the Post office.
Restaurants are everywhere.
