If you are looking for a quite business hotel on the outskirts of Tokyo city (abt 30 mins away via train), then you can consider staying at the Richmond Premier hotel. This hotel is located just 3 mins walk away from the Musashikosugi train station, which makes it pretty ideal for travelling around, plus the station has an direct express train to Narita airport (NEX - check out their website for travel schedule time & fare)
The rooms is the hotel are average size, well equipped, clean and well maintained. There is no iron board and iron in the room, you have to request it from the front reception (on the 5th floor) and they will give you this adorable looking iron set.
The room come with an massage chair, so for those long workdays it pretty ideal, to sit back and get a free electronic massage. The free wifi connection in the room is pretty strong, up to 20mbs when i checked.
Breakfast can be a bit challenging as the dining room is pretty small and it can only occupy less than 30 pax at time, so go early (Breakfast starts at 6.30am) or go after 9pm (when most of the business travelers have left). During this rush hour, the hotel's 2 lift may be packed and you may also have to wait a couple more minutes extra. The front reception staffs are helpful, and they will try to assist you as best as they can.
Around the hotel, there are a few supermarkets (one of which closes at 1am), and restaurants. You may want to try walking around exploring some the nearby restaurants for good local food.
Overall this is a good hotel for business travelers, so holiday seekers unless there is something around the area which I may have missed then you may need to explore further.
