The rooms are about as large as hotel rooms get in Japan, and the beds are exceptionally comfortable. The hotel is shaped like a giant taco and we were fortunate to be in an outside-of-the-taco room looking over the bay. The breakfast buffet was outstanding.
As good as the room was, there were three problems with the hotel:
1. Fitness center was 5400 yen ($54) a visit. Working out is important to me, but I could not stomach this level of pricing and did not use it. The fitness center is run by a private company and is unusually well equipped, but I refused to pay the outrageously high fee.
2. The temperature control in the room was iffy, sometimes too cold, sometimes too warm, and impossible to get just right.
3. The Italian restaurant -- La Vera -- was a let-down, but one should assume responsibility for thinking that Italian food should be desirable in Japan with its excellent meals.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay and the convention rate for the hotel was reasonable. It was a good hotel, but with the choices in the area, one can do better.
