This is a comfortable hotel with Japanese finishing, located in the heart of Japantown across from the Japanese Center. Front desk staff are courteous and helpful, though not always aware of people's needs. On more than one occasion, we received calls from our Virgin Holidays rep, but the front desk failed to help us out.
Our room was spacious and the beds were comfy. The bathroom was separated into three sections: toilet, mirror & sink, and then a small 'wet room' for washing your feet, bathing and showering. The tub was small and deep, and the facilities easy to use. The room was clean throughout, though I had a couple of yellow pillows that I avoided using!
We enjoyed a fantastic view of Japantown and the Peace Pagoda from our room on the 13th floor. We could hear the traffic by night, but it didn't bother our sleep. Our balcony, with a sliding glass door, was connected to our neighbour's balcony, so we made certain to lock the door and close the Japanese screen doors whenever we left the room. On one occasion, I had to politely ask our neighbours for quiet when they were talking and smoking on the adjoining balcony, and they were apologetic.
There's a business feel to this hotel, which accommodates conferences (we think). There's a nice mix of people walking around and good, free wifi available in rooms and lobby. There's a safe available in the room, too.
There's a local Safeway for supplies, and handy bus routes for getting around the city. We recommend the 7-day CityPass, which is great value for all muni transport, and even has vouchers for local attractions.
