Location is excellent. there is convenient underground access to the JR station, underground shopping mall and the anchoring Daimaru (large department store) and ESTA, a multistory group of shops and eateries. Odori Park (site of the annual snow festival) is a very easy walk and even Susukino is fairly easily reached on foot. Staff were courteous and helpful, typically what you'd expect in Japan, where the customer is treated with great respect. As part of a group tour, we had a choice of Western buffet or a set Japanese menu for breakfast, held in different restaurants in the hotel. Both were excellent. Rooms are slightly smaller than the rooms found in the more corporate hotels. For westerners, they might feel a bit cramped, but these are typical in Japan and may be classified as representative of "tour group" type of hotels. this is not a knock on the hotel, just stating a comparison. As is also typical in Japan except for the high end hotels, the bathrooms can be "smelly", especially when you run any water (sink, toilet, shower). This is why I've given it 4 instead of 5 stars.
