Stayed here with a friend for a few days in late May - a great hotel with a staff that speaks English very well, and in a prime location for anyone taking the Tokaido Shinkansen - the station is about 5 minutes away from the hotel, and the hotel is very easy to find as I think it's the tallest building in the area. We were on the 39th floor or somesuch and had wonderful views of Yokohama.
The hotel is accessible through "Prince Pepe", a hilariously named shopping mall with a few conbinis and various stores inside. Great to grab a quick cheap breakfast or a beer. As all hotels in Japan should be, the hotel is also well-equipped with vending machines too.
LAN internet is available in the room; I would have preferred Wi-Fi but that doesn't appear to be the norm in Japan. I brought a wireless router with me and that worked great, as long as I used the ethernet cable they provided.
One word of advice - the top-floor bar is very nice but they do charge I think a ¥1000 cover charge we were unaware of until the bill came. Oh well.

Just 16 minutes from downtown Tokyo, the hotel is connected to the Shin Yokohama Shinkansen Station and the Shopping Plaza Prince Pepe, making it a convenient hub for both business and leisure activities. The area surrounding the hotel is in itself a large amusement complex featuring various sports facilities, including a skating rink, indoor tennis courts and bowling alleys.
