Rated 5 out of 5 by MNWinterTravel Great location and convenience
This is the best hotel to stay at if working near Yokohama. The location just across from the Yokohama station allows easy access to trains that will take you anywhere in Japan. I work in Fujisawa and being able to get right on the Sotetsu line in the morning is a great benefit. The hotel is also within walking distance of shopping, food and sightseeing. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The staff is courteous and friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris Excellent Staff & Comfort with Care
I am the SPG Lifetime Platinum member. I have stayed so many hotels including STARWOOD hotels all over the world in past 30 years. I enjoy Yokohama Bay Sheraton the best for its friendlyness and best services. I feel so much at home and warm when many hotel staff recognized me and call my names when I checked-in on March 2013. I still got exactly same news papers I used to read and care through entire week. It has been more than 15 years with this hotel and I am looking forward to stay Yokohama Bay Sheraton again. It is fun to talk to Reservation department since they are like friends. So I even happy to book this hotel for my co-workers.Thank you and please continue good services with smile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jll888 This hotel is strategically located
This hotel is strategically located just next to Yokohama Train Station which is quite convenient to travel around.
We arrived with a warm greeting by friendly hotel staff and the bell captain personally lead us the way to 26th floor club lounge for check in.
The hotel offered us a nice corner room with a panoramic view of the Yokahama Bay. The room is quite big compare to normal room and make our stay quite comfortable.
We do enjoy the club lounge cocktail hour and the breakfast buffet with nice food and beverages.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kate29 What's a good location!
We love the location of the hotel, where JR station is opposite, shops and department stores are in walking distance. The room is clean. As a platinum member we were upgraded to the corner room only, not an available suite room. The executive lounge is so small compare to other Starwood hotels. The staffs are friendly. Breakfast are ok, there is not much Japanese style food. I would recommend this hotel for any travellers as you are well connected to JR station.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eitaro Never experienced the way other reviews did
I was very surprised to see some of the negative reviews about this property. I have been platinum member for the last 5 years and use this property very frequently. Front desk staff is very nice, bell man is great, many of the hotel staff remembers me and greet me every time I stay there.
On my first visit to this hotel 8 or 9 years ago, I requested extension power cable and every time I go there, it's always there in my room without even requesting it.
Sure, their club lounge isn't the greatest compared to other properties, but you can't complain when you can get free breakfast buffet at the restaurant which is one of the nicest breakfast I've experienced compared to all other SPG properties.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tokiogaijin Enjoyed much better as a Platinum member
This time around I was a platinum member and could enjoy the pool/fitness and the exec lounge for free. Fitness staff are really friendly and I could enjoy a relaxing time in the pool with just a few other people.
The exec lounge was nice - very small but nice. Get there early if you want a seat. They had to turn away many guests and had to phone their rooms when a table was free. (I would be pretty upset if I were paying to use the lounge and couldn't) The food is very minimal. The exec club staff made a comment saying that guests are disppointed and often complain about the minimal food but the exec club is not there to provide a full meal for people. Well those exec staff should visit some of the other Sheraton exec lounges throughout asia! The food even though minimal was really great however!
And there was a nice selection of free beer, wine, cocktails you could make yourself.
I was much happier this time around as a platinum member.
