This is a great hotel if you plan on getting away from it all - i.e., aim for relaxation, spa, and just beautiful scenary. The staff is very helpful and there is a fully equipped gym. You don't want to miss the onsen on the 2nd floor (hot and cold water), very relaxing, also the various pools and sauna on the first floor. just don't walk with your Yukata on the first floor, someone is going to tell you to skaddadle up. The food in the resturant is very expensive (hamburger with some fries and a Japanese pickle cost me over $25), you may want to take the shuttle to Odawara and explore for better choices there.
I checked into this hotel around 4:00 PM so the ceremics class was already closed. If you are planing to stay in this hotel and like creating something you may want to come a bit earlier and make a plate with the guidance of a local artist. It will take a few weeks to dry and then they will ship it to you. You can use the computers in the library for emailing and such.
The view of the ocean from this hotel is great, the grounds are immaculate. there are many trails through the gardens but unfiortunately I came a few days after the earthquake and we were not allowed into the trails because of possible structural damage. Take a walk from the hotel down to the city - very peaceful. Highly recommand!
