Large hotel with conference/banquet facilities on the fringe of downtown Himeji. You can walk 15-20 mins to shopping and other attractions, but it is not right in the middle of the action. The hotel has a shuttle bus that goes to the bus/train station, in the middle of town.
The room was small, and the bathroom was a very small modular unit. It was fine for me, but someone who needs a lot of personal space or counter space (for cosmetics/toiletries) will feel cramped.
My roommate found some extra storage space under the bed, and that helped.
The internet connection (wired) in the room was very slow. I gave up trying to use it in any meaningful way, but it is good enough to send an email or two.
The front desk manager seemed to work day and night, and would go out of his way to fulfill any special requests, (taxi, nightlife, reservations, etc.)
Breakfast buffet included Japanese and western choices.
