The Hotel Monterey chain is pretty visible throughout Kansai area (Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe) and each hotel has a different theme running through the lobby and rooms. The hotel Grassmere is supposed to remind you of an English country hunting retreat - of course, it really feels like a spacious business hotel, which it is. The rooms are clean and the bathroom is definitely bigger than your ordinary business hotel's bathroom, plus the view from the South-west side is fantastic. The staff is kind and attentive and speaks decent English and the location is terrific for getting to the subway, the airport, the bus terminal, etc... The main reason I stayed here, though, is because they offer promotions if you book far enough in advance - a month out and the room was marked off 40%. That's really a nice deal if you're looking to splurge on some space, comfort, location, view, and accessibility. And you needn't splurge too terribly much. But I wouldn't stay here if I had to pay full price. Not even to impress a partner.
