I had a friend check out the Pearl chain for me yesterday. All rooms are smoking rooms, so if you prefer a non-smoking room - like I do - then don't book at The Pearl. Here are a couple other places that speak English and have non-smoking rooms:
My wife and I are staying at the Lungwood in June. It is right by Nippori Station on the Yamanote Line
This one - KKR - is near Tokyo station and is right beside the Imperial Palace grounds. There is a subway station right next to it.
Want cheap with a true Japanese experience? Try the Kimi Ryokan in Ikebukuro on the Yamanote Line. My wife and kids and I have stayed there in the past and have had a blast. However, at 62, my wife doesn't want to sleep on a futon anymore.
How about a hostel right in central Tokyo? Try http://www.sakura-hostel.co.jp/
Hope this all helps.
