Great hotel to stay in. Restaurant prices very high, you better off crossing the street and going to the local restaurants. Mcdonalds close by, starbucks, and all other choice in restaurants. Train lines to go all over Tokyo right across the street. Great way to move around, once you figure out the lines G line will take you to the Hotel and many other places, make sure to exchange your dollars in the airport or at the hotel. You have to have Yens to buy stuff, a lot of places do not accept credit cards and you will get more value for your dollar if you exchange your money. I sow a woman once with a hundred dollar bills and she wanted to pay for something in the store and they told her to walk to the exchange store. No one wants your dollars, they only use the YEN. Tokyo is well organized and people are very polite. Tokyo is a great place to visit. Make sure you visit the Tokyo Tower, Electric City, Fish Market, The temples are so beautiful and you can go to all those places using their subway system. Taxis and food can be very costly, Tokyo is a very nice place to visit but you better bring enough money..I had a great time and will come again and stay at the same Hotel, the rooms were clean. The only negative thing I have to say is that is NO Free WI-FI and you must pay for internet. You will get an Iternet cable connection that goes into your lap top directly.
