It is fairly traditional, with grand lobby, lots of meeting spaces, and somewhat grand European-leaning elegance. Service is very good, and breakfast is great, with many interesting Japanese options. Seems more oriented to Japanese businessmen and visitors, saw few Westerners. Staff is polite and helpful. I had a nice room (1200) overlooking the beautiful garden and with good views of the city. The room was surprisingly quiet, much appreciated in this busy city. Comfortable bed, and room very well-appointed all around. Nice touches, including slippers and bathrobes, and real-china tea set (kelp tea available!). Some quibbles: major one is that this must have been a smoking room, at least at some point, and they could not find me a non-smoking one. But bothered me less than I thought. Also, the hotel looks ju-u-ust a little frayed around the edges here and there. Also, not that close to the subway and train station but they do have a shuttle, which helps. Some reviewers have commented that "not much to do around". True, no real tourist destinations but the neighborhoods around are "real" as opposed to touristy, so plenty to see if you want to get a feel for the real Tokyo, which feels a bit scruffy and grimy, and incredibly packed. I liked it.
