This hotel is conveniently located if you have business in the Shinagawa area.
It is clean and comfortable, rooms are reasonable in size except in the oldest part (East Tower?) where your bed fits, and your legs to go around it, but not much more.
-Be aware that Internet means Ethernet cable access and buy one of these simple Ethernet-WiFi routers (priced 3000 yens in electronic shops around Akihabara station) so that you can connect all your appliances, phones, tablets, PC.
-do not hope to get a comfortable time at breakfast at this hotel. You would have to queue for breakfast, and sit in a crowded self-service area. If you have not allowed more than 1 hr, you may either end-up skipping your cosy breakfast or arrive late at your meeting, which is not advised in Japan.
Recommendation: never have breakfast at this hotel. You can have it in your room. Your favourite instant coffee can be bought in convenience shops in the station or near the hotel, you can also get breakfast food, including milk,fruit and yogurt there. Alternatively, starbucks, segafredo, and three other cafes are a more reasonable choice to get a quiet morning breakfast without queuing.
-The only problem of the hotel is its queuing for anything. Here is my tip: get your Prince Hotel "Prince Club" card online, and bring it or a copy of it, so that you can queue in the short queue for members.
Useful at check-in and check-out in particular.
The card also gives access to late check-out and probably early check-in (never needed it).
-instead of using the costly fitness center, bring your running attire and jog around or to the top of the neighbouring Takanawa Hill. You can also run to the Old Tokkaido street, with a nice village atmosphere, and reach a canal along which it is nice to run or walk.
