It's years since I did this but the airport limousine bus went straight to the hotel (Shinjuku Washington in my case). It looks like it still does.

The Narita Express train runs straight from Tokyo Narita to Shinjuku. Route map: Bear in mind that Shinjuku is a huge station and that it's quite easy to get lost or turned around in it. In light of that it may be helpful to figure out which exit you want to take in advance. Here's a map of the exists: ...
