I'll be staying at this hotel for the second time in about 6 weeks. It is located near the "town" of Gora in the Hakone area foothills. It's a lovely hotel, with large rooms(a standard room is on the order of 60sqmt), an onsen (indoors, segregated by sex), and a restaurant which serves either French or Japanese cuisine. There is also an inviting lobby with a pit fireplace. Adjacent to the onsen area is a spa where general spa services are available; I haven't tried any of these. Some rooms have a view of Mt. Fuji but I wouldn't pay a large premium to get one as Mt. Fuji is very rarely visible from behind the clouds. There are a few different ways to get to the hotel from Odawara. One is to take the train to Gora and then either take a taxi to the hotel or ride the cog railroad to the 4th stop, from where it's about a 5 minute walok. Another is to use the few shuttle from Odawara that the hotel runs a few times a day. Gora (and Hakone in general) is a vacation area and while there are a number of hotels adjacent to the Hyatt, there are few restaurants within walking distance. The GM of the hotel received her training at the PH Tokyo and she knows her stuff. As a result the staff is very welcoming and willing to help. You'll have a fine stay at this hotel.
