The staff at the hotel were very helpful. They were able to make reservations at restaurants that spoke little English and provide detailed maps to get the place as well. The shuttle from the train station is very convenient. The lobby is nice and the hotel is a mecca for brides. There must have been at least six or seven getting pictures taken on the day I checked in.
The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable.
Breakfast was served in two places-- one japanese on the six floor where you could look at the garden while eating and the other english on the 17th floor with a great view over the city. THe english breakfast had lots of japanese options. BOth were very good, but I would opt for the english if I had been there more than two days.
