The hotel is in the city of Yokohama, near the station Nihon Odori from the Minatomirai Line. In 2 -3 minutes you are at the station and then in another 10 minutes you are a Yokohama station.
The location is nice, as you are next to Chinatown, the shopping district, Yokohama station and the sea shore. This locatio would also be a good base for tourists.
The rooms in the hotel are clean, functioanl but rather small. There is also a restaurant in the hotel but not many other amneties.
Internet in the rooms is working fast, unfortunatly in the rooms only on fix line and no WiFi. The personal is willing to help you and speaks quite good English.

We stayed here for 4 nights while attending a conference at the PACIFICO Yokohama convention center. We were able to get a fantastic rate via Expedia.com by booking several months out, and were very impressed by the value we received. It met and exceeded our expectations. The room was immaculately clean, very modern, and comfortable. The bathroom even has a heated mirror that won't fog and an electronic toilet that keeps the seat warm. Prior to booking, we had read a few reviews that described the rooms as "tiny." In our opinion, this is not the case. Yes, the standard rooms are not overly spacious, but for business travel the room is more than sufficient. The staff members were all friendly and able to handle all of our questions and requests.

While the hotel is not located at the convention center itself, the metro ride and the walk only takes about 20 minutes and in the event of rain is covered almost the entire way. We didn't have much time for sightseeing, but the close proximity to China Town and a few nice parks allowed us to enjoy a little bit of the city.

Room Tip: We got a corner room on the 10th floor and found it to be quite nice.

Yokohama, Jal Kannai

Located in a quiet side street with a very convenient tube line,Nihon-Odori, only 100 metres away. Chinatown, with over 150 restaurants, is about 150 metres away.
We stopped for 6 nights in a deluxe double on the 10th floor ( 1013). We booked 60 days ahead which meant the room (Yen9,000 per night average - nights vary or £75 for 2) was cheaper than the Corporate rate my ex- Japanese company could obtain. 
Although smaller than,say,UK deluxe rooms, the room was comfortable, very quiet on an evening, excellent a/c, and a VERY comfortable bed and pillow. Good facilities - fridge ( there is a convenience store on the next block for beers, milk for your own cereal,etc), Internet cable( don't forget your Ethernet to USB connector especially if you have an "Apple"- then you can use your Macair to send out wifi signals for your iPad, iPhone, etc), small desk, tv ( only Japanese tv) and a compact bathroom with shower over a typical deep but short bath. The room was modern and kept immaculate. We brought our own cereal and fruit, thereby saving the breakfast fee of Yen 1500 ( £12.50 at March 2012 rates )each. There is an Excelsior cafe about 200 metres to the right out of the hotel, 2 blocks away near Yamashita park. They do "breakfast sets" ( hot drink and various toasties) until 11am.
You are 2 stops away from the Landmark and Queens Gate shopping centre, or 6 mins away from Yokohama station. About 20 mins from Shin-Yokohama Shinkansen ( tube to Kikuna, change to JR one stop). Ishikawacho station is a 10 minute walk through Chinatown. Use Hyperdia.com for train times and connection planning, Kamakura is about 30 minutes via Ofuna from the latter station. On the way back through Ofuna go into the Tsukiji stand up sushi bar for best value sushi in the area. 
The Yokohama baseball sodium is a 5 minute walk from Jal Kannai.
Lunch is always excellent value in Japan, BUT you must be in the restaurant before 12 noon or go after 1 pm as the hordes of local office workers descend for their one hour lunch. A favourite is a Ten-don bar ( tempura over a savoury rice, plus miso, pickles etc) above the Sitar Indian restaurant about 100 metres away( left out of reception,first left and next block corner). Closed Monday I think. Or Takedai 2 blocks away opposite Shell garage ( downstairs).Or Lunchan Ave that serves 4 dish choice (pasta, curry,sandwich,salad) - on the corner opposite Post Office near Nihon-Odori tube. All around Yen 1,000 each for lunch. If you want to give Japanese food a miss one night then try "Visconti", a very small but lovely atmosphere pizza place between baseball stadium and Motomachi shopping street, about 10-15 minute walk. The latter street is excellent to wander with very nice shops as well as Excelsior,Pompadour and the wonderfully stocked Union supermarket. We often had sushi or sashimi from Union to eat in our room. 
You can reach Osambashi and the waterfront from the Jal Kannai in about 4-5 minutes.
Jal Kannai staff are professional and most of them can communicate in English. A good choice hotel for Yokohama.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room, away from lifts on a higher floor.For example we had room 1013. No great view...
