This is a standard western style hotel, probably a bit better maintained than the average Hilton. On the other hand, this is an excellent choice by Japanese standards. The rooms are big, well furnished, and big windows (which seems to be exactly the opposite of the standards in Japanese hotels). Don't expect any Japanese touches - this is as western as it can be. All the people staying at the hotel are western. We have stayed at several hotels (in several cities) on our recent trip to Japan, and Hilton Nagoya was by far the best in terms of comfort (and things that we get used in the West). The only downside is that it doesn't have any local character.
"Experiencing A Japanese Hotel Expectation in CDB."
The hotel is one of the Meitetsu Airport shuttle and just one station away from Nagoya station, the central terminal hub. This provide variation to the hotel from Centrair, Nagoya International airport. Besides the train, there are enough bus stop around the hotel and a strong line of ever ready cab to hop in.
The main entrance are always manned by staff ready to bow and come to assistance.
The front desk was fast to register guest and quick in check-out process.
Most staff can understand English and very helpful whenever guide around the city is required.
The room is clean, properly arranged,my room came with a good view and no complain when it comes to the bathroom. As the hotel is in CDB and next to Nagoya Uni Grad School, it's more quiet after hours. It is situated within walking distance of some top spot like Osu Kannon, Science Musuem, Electric Museum and Sakae, the shopping district where Nagoya Tower, Central Park and Oasis 21, the futuristic designed bus terminal.
Local knows the hotel so whenever you are lost in the maze of buildings, most are more than happy to show you the way to get back to your hotel. Otherwise remember to ask for a hotel card from front desk should you need to use it, especially you are ready to get back in a cab late at night.
Across the road is a small park and Nagoya Intercity. A very modern, clean and I guessed new office building which also house some of the top fine dinning restaurant. There is also a Canon showroom to explore.
The walk to the train station is less than 10 minutes. They had clean, spacious modern western rooms. The room was almost twice the size as the place that I rented in Akihabara. Very friendly staff and they provided me with a free breakfast and drink coupon.
We only stayed one night and arrived at the hotel at 10.30am. Our room was not ready but they upgraded us to a superior room overlooking Nagoya Castle and then offered us complimentary snacks and drinks from the library room whilst we waited for our room. The concierge arranged to have our suitcases sent from their hotel to our next hotel in Koyoto and the cost for 2 cases was less than Aud$30! Because we were going on an over night trek we did not want to lug the extra cases. The staff are fantastic and a luxury hotel well worth the money. They even offer a shuttle bus into the train station and central Negoya

Daiwa-Roynet Nagoya Ekimae (be careful, there is another Daiwa Roynet NW of the station) is just SE of Nagoya station -- no more than five minutes walk plus some waiting at pedestrian crossings.
The hotel is new and clean. The rooms are small, of course, but I managed to avoid bruising my shins. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Location was perfect for my purposes -- a four day meeting at the nearby WINC Aichi building. There is a coffee shop on the first/ground floor with a good breakfast for 500 yen. Next to it is a Lawsons -- a mini-supermarket -- known to the Japanese a a "combini" or convenience store.
