First, the review by Koyangie in mid July is quite good and sums things up. So this is more of a personal reflection and a couple extra details. We got here by train, first to shinagawa then by the local train one stop away to kitashinagawa. The walking bridge crosses the street, head right & up a block or so and you're there. No long waits for shuttles if you're willing to take a brief walk.
The hotel is much bigger than the local standard bed in a closet room. More to a western standard. We're platinum for now so check-in was in the executive lounge. Excellent English all around. The lounge has plenty of alcohol if that's your thing in the evening. The finger foods were pretty good. The rest are snacks in small glass jars. I do think the lounge is an after-thought. It would be nicer if it was on a high floor with a view instead of a windowless room and a single tv. Service was excellent and attentive, though.
The rooms are fine and summed up elsewhere. Breakfast has a bit of the standard western and local Japanese + Vietnamese fare. It was average. They bring omlets to you which delays things a little. And they do guard the coffee a bit much, considering how bitter it is.
One nice surprise is the large walkable garden adjacent to the building. There was a local food / beer fair going on which was fun. And if you don't want a fancy dinner there's the family mart at the bottom of the stairs with snacks and some quick noodles.
Big picture: Good hotel, reasonable price, excellent service, and an easy train ride from downtown. Improvements can come from the executive lounge, breakfast service, and maybe a chocolate with turndown service :)
