Sendai Sunplaza was my only hotel option while on my trip late last year, as the town was sold out for a popular music group's concert...which is why I was there myself. It's a few blocks from the train station so take a taxi, but it's a very short trip.
I arrived late and they put up with my sketchy Japanese as I asked about coffee service and all that on check-in. Very friendly staff, they speak English but it can be sketchy. too.
There's a 7-Eleven across the street (yay!), and the rooms are neat and clean. My single room was on the small side but nice, and I had a view of the northern mountains above the buildings, from a high floor. The next time I'm in Sendai I would stay here again; it's quite pleasant.
The only thing I'd suggest is that you keep your patience cap on if they happen to have an event in their hall. It can get quite crowded from the main street to the elevators.More
