I stay in Minatomirai several times a year and decided to try Pan Pacific for the first time. I was able to book a balcony room for JPY 8000 ($100 USD), which I thougt was a steal. Granted, I stayed on a Sunday so that may explain the low price.
I went there not expecting much but the room was much larger than I expected and the bathroom was quite spacious. It had a separate shower and a wonderful bath tub -- pretty luxurious and very relaxing. I'm not sure if all the rooms are set up this way but I was really happy with the room.
There are two chairs and a table out on the balcony if you want to sit out there and drink coffee but be forewarned -- the space is TINY. I find it funny that they call it the "balcony room" as if to put emphasis on this feature but it's really not much of a feature.
The hotel staff was exteremely polite and allowed us to check in an hour earlier. Also, another great thing about this hotel is that it is connected to Queen's Square and Landmark Tower so even if it's raining, you can get around without an umbrella. There is a Cosmo World (a small amusement park...more like a local fair in the states) across the way if you want to entertain children. There's lots of shopping; both clothing and anime-type shops. And last but not least, foods galore. There are plenty of places to eat so I would recommend venturing out of the hotel for meals. The restaraunt floor at Collette Mare by the Sakuragicho train station has a good variety but super crowded on weekends. If you want some western sweets, go to World Porters and try the doughnut hole at Leonards too!
