Part of my honeymoon will be in Tokyo. We are narrowing our hotel choices (we are limited to these for point/free redemption ability), but wanted to get a sense of the pros and cons. We are seasoned travelers who will likely be seeing many different parts of the city and nearby towns (i.e. Kamakura). Have seen this
thread but want to get a sense for a couple.
What are your thoughts on where to stay? Our criteria include a)ability to get in and out, b) 'interestingness' of area --is it a 24 hour district (this is good) and c) the IT honeymoon factor (i.e. the hotel experience).

Super Luxury (Ritz Carlton)
Location: Ropponggi Hills
Very High floors (cons, takes a while to get to street?). One of the tallest buildings in Tokyo
Equivalent of double the 'cost' (uses more points)
Still pretty luxury (Marriott)
Location: Shinagwa, near Katashinagwa train statoin
Not sure about hotel, (new) but get Marriott benefits.
We are not snobs when it comes to hotels (we've camped in tents, slept in cars and hostels in the last 2 years but have also stayed at JW Marriotts and Park Hyatts) and probably won't be spending much time other than sleeping and wink at the hotels.
We are doing all the main tourist things and the interesting ones we find on metafilter. I'm sure we will go out partying together one or two nights (clubbing one night, bar hopping another--we are very social). We also enjoy the experience of taking public transport (are there late night buses too in Tokyo?)
