Friendly staff, great location but small rooms
Overall the stary was great but the room is bit small. Travel can be a bit dreadful if you like to shopping around Skinjuku. The plus side is that the area is very quite and you can go to the main train station in the underground.

A perfect location to enjoy Tokyo
free wireless internet is a real plus.
from this hotel you are just walking distance to Ginza and all of the great experiences of Tokyo. Right under the hotel there is access to the Subway and JR rail.
Try dinner at Dazzle in Ginza, just perfect.

So I read all the reviews before I chose this hotel and here is my 2 cents.
1.) If you have anything electrical with 3 prong, you will need a 3 prong to 2 prong adapter. You can get one from the front desk but for me I needed at least two.
2.) Food was pricey at the hotel but what hotel does not have pricey food. There are cheaper alternatives very close to the hotel.
3.)Subway station is below, easy to ride the train. Tip, get a JR Pass before you leave, you can save yourself some money.
4.) For those that complained about room size, if you want a bigger room, you will surely have to pay a lot more (especially in Japan). I had a few suitcases so I was fine with the space provided, it is surely not a room to havee a bunch of guests. While small by American standards, it was roomy enough for me.
5.) While there is Wifi in the rooms, it dropped a lot so I used the wired connection. If you dont bring a cable, you could borrow one from the front desk.
6.) Bed was not that comfortable but after long days out in the City, I probably would have slept on a cardboard box.
7.) Staff spoke English very well but if you are trying to do the tour bus thing, you will have to set that up on your own, they do not provide that service at the hotel.
8.) The Fish market that everyone talks about is a must see and while you may see some foreigners in the area of the hotel, a lot of the places outside the hotel where not that English friendly but you are in another country and I just pointed at things on the menu I wanted. Most places will say if they have an English menu.
9.)Not sure why the complaints about TV and the lack of English stations however most hotels in Japan (outside of the more expensive hotels in the Roppungi area)give you 4 English stations, CNN, BCC, MTV, and a Movie channel that plays really old movies. I had plenty of movies to watch but again I came to Japan for the experience and not American TV.
Go to the Fish Market.
Trains are a little complicated at first but you can get used to it.
If you know a little Japanese, it will help you tremdously!

Very good hotel in the heart of Shiodome
Comfortable rooms, nice lobby, great city views
Rooms are nice and well maintained. TV has limited choice for English channels, be prepared to watch CNN only.

Brillient hotel with great service and views
Great front desk whose services includes subway and overhead bridge guides :-)) Great location and views
Had a bit of trouble getting from the Shimbasi station to the hotel, as the station is HUGE. Found it with fantastic help from train station staff and local commuters who are SO friendly (even with language barrier). Would have been nice if the hotel have travel instructions (from train station) on their website.
We had a room facing the Tokyo tower and get fantastic night views. We were also lucky enough to have a clear view of Fujisan one evening. Priceless.
Room is very clean and good size by any standard. We particularly enjoyed the wonderfully fragrant 'drip' coffee provided in the room.
I must thank the front desk for their superb service, going out of their way to give us directions in navigating the Shimbasi station and the overhead/padestrian bypass.
Hotel is within easy walk to Ginza and fish market, and easy train ride to all other points of interest.
Will def recommand a stay there.
Hotel Feature Tip:
Make use of the front desk for directions and travel advice. You can get great maps and travel guides from the display at the guest pc room.

Great hotel with great restaurants
Helpful and friendly staff
The hotel is a luxury business hotel with somewhat nice view. The rooms with Tokyo tower view are spectacular. I can't complain for the lack of Tokyo Tower view because I was given an upgrade to a suite. The French restaurant was so good that I forgave the pricey bill. I would stay here again.
Totally recommend the restaurants at this hotel
