Stayed here for a day in May '14.
The location of the hotel is excellent, just next to Sakai station which is just 10 minutes train ride from Namba. The lobby had lovely ambience and the rooms were quite spacious compared to Japan's standards. The bathroom was well designed as well. The only problem I had with the room was that it was quite hot and I wasn't able to adjust the temperature.
The hotel has some good restaurants. I tried the Italian restaurant for lunch and the the All day dining for buffet breakfast. Both were of good standards.
Found the all day dining restaurant closed at 10 pm. When asked at reception, was informed that it was closed for that day as it was Golden Week. Was never informed about it while checking in. Anyway, the receptionist apologised for it. The host at the all day dining restaurant spoke excellent English but the receptionists had to struggle.
The complimentary wi-fi was of good speed. Overall, an excellent hotel to stay when in Osaka.
