I went to Okinawa for a conference at the Okinawa Convention Center. We originally stayed at a hotel right near the convention center, about 20 mins away from the center of the city. The problem was that, other than the convention center, there was very little to see, eat, or do around there -- so I moved myself to the JAL City Hotel in Naha. Way more convenient to everything and still only a short 2000 yen cab ride away from the Convention Center.
The rooms are small -- Japan small -- just enough space for a full size bed and a small desk -- but that was totally fine. The location is what is key -- it is right in the middle of Kokusai Dori -- the "international street" that is the center of all the action in Naha. Restaurants, shops, the open market, and many bars within 5 minutes walking distance in any direction.
There are two monorail stops within 5 mins walking distance as well that you can take to many sites within Naha City. The breakfast buffet that comes with the room isn't bad either. Had it every morning.
Lastly -- the best part -- is that it was very reasonably priced! We stayed there for $117 a night. Which I thought was a phenomenal price in Japan (particularly since the dollar is so weak)
All in all, I'd strongly recommend this to any business travellers to Okinawa.
