My wife and I stayed at the Keio Plaza in September 2011 for the final leg of our 2 week holiday in Japan.
The room, though small (which is normal for Japanese standards), was tastefully decorated and the bed was very comfortable too. It came with a Nespresso coffee machine which was a treat - we have one at home and had been missing it til we came to the Keio Plaza. Our room faced the west side and had a very nice view of the Tokyo Govt buildings as well as the sun set over Tokyo city. It was the perfect place to unwind and relax after a long day of sightseeing.
The location was also prime. We had stayed at the Hilton Tokyo during the first leg of our trip, which we found to be a bit of a hike from Shinjuku JR station and the main department stores/shopping/eating district on the other side. The Keio Plaza was much closer and had a very well stocked Lawsons and internal convenience store downstairs (this is a must for a late night meal/dessert!).
Staff here were also very helpful - they had arranged the airport bus for us and it was seemless when we checked out. I have stayed in quite a few business hotels for work, and have found the Keio Plaza one of the better ones. I was able to find a very good deal on Expedia, which meant that we only paid approx AUD200pn.
The only thing I could fault was that there was a slight smoking smell throughout our floor and in the room. I don't know whether this was due to poor air conditioning/ventilation (as they were turned down to save on electricity post-tsunami). It was raised in my feedback card to the Keio Plaza which they promptly acknowledged.
Shinjuku is the prime location to stay when in Tokyo, and I would definitely stay again at the Keio Plaza if I can get a similar good value deal.
