This hotel is in an excellent location for seeing parts of Tokyo that are not on every tour. We've stayed here at least five times over the past thirty years. It wasn't until our third stay that we discovered the charming neighborhoods behind the hotel (away from the train station and park) where it is quiet and you can get a glimpse of how Japanese really live.
That said, we have always enjoyed the park, especially on our first (honeymoon) visit when the cherry blossoms seemed to bloom just for us. And having the train station area close by, with its warren of alleyways full of shops and bars meant that if we wanted to see fast-paced, neon-lights Tokyo, it was only a short walk through the park.
We have always stayed in Tatami rooms, except once when only a western room was available. Much prefer the tatami room because the simplicity and lack of sophistication that is charming in the Japanese setting is just claustrophobic and depressing in the western setting.
The front desk staff is helpful but very reserved, with varying degrees of English fluency, but we've never had major communication issues.
We have a sentimental soft spot for Suigetsu, but even without the romantic connection, it would be our go-to spot in Tokyo because it is convenient, clean, comfortable, and utterly charming.
