This is a typical and above average business hotel. But it's service, cleanness and facilities standard are higher than other 3 star hotels in Asia. The room size is bigger than the other downtown hotels as well. There are plenty of selections from the buffet breakfast, various from Western to Japanese cuisines. And you could sit closed to the window to enjoy the view from Tokyo Tower.
It takes you 2-3 mins walk from the hotel main entrance to Onarimon metro station. From there you could get to Ginza, Shibuya, and Shijuku within 30 minutes by metro. There are several convenient stores (7/11, family mart) within 5 mins walking distance.
Around the hotel, I would recommend you to visit Zojoji Temple. It's located next to the hotel main entrance. Its grounds contain the mausoleum of the Tokugawa family. It is lovely to walk through the grounds and immerse yourself in the Japanese style garden. I would not recommend you to get into the Tokyo Tower as it is nothing special from the other towers around the world. But if you still have energy after dinner, I strongly recommend you to walk to the closed by neighbourhood - Roppongi Hills. This is a newly developed area attracting for international visitors. There are some stores and restaurants as well as a variety of other facilities such as an art museum, and cinema. The viewing platform on the 52nd floor of Mori Tower above Roppongi Hills offers unbroken view of Tokyo Tower and the surrounding areas.
There is only one downside from the hotel: Even the hotel guest will be charged JPY2000 per day to access to the hotel swimming pool. This is the only hotel that charges swimming pool access for its guests by far for me. I thought this rule could be optimised in the future.
