The hotel is virtually flawless.
The room was large and very comfortable. It was very dark at night and the bed was very comfortable, making it easy to sleep. The shower has awesome water pressure, which can be hard to find in many hotels, especially in Japan in my experience.
The service is absolutely outstanding! The concierge was extremely helpful. I emailed them a couple of weeks prior to my arrival to make dinner reservations. They were even able to find a restaurant that I went to almost a year ago but couldn't remember the name of. And, they made another restaurant recommendation upon arrival that I really enjoyed.
The breakfast buffet is quite good. Everything seems very fresh and there is a wide a selection of foods. One of the best breakfast buffets I've had.
The gym is nice. I only used it once as I had a one-day complementary coupon.
The location is good. It is a 5-10 minute from the Osaka station. And, it is close to the Umeda-Nishi subway station, which a number of subway lines serve. There is also a an express bus service to get to the Kansai International airport just a few minutes from the hotel. And, the lively restaurant district of Umedanichi is about a 5-10 walk away. There is some great people watching in the evening there.
