Interesting location with Great Sushi spots

The hotel is located above the Little Tokyo mall which provides a lot of sushi and korean bbq spots. However there is no hotel parking except valet which is $20 per day. There is a parking garage for the mall behind the hotel but that costs $10 per day. It is conveniently located near the 110 and I-5 freeways and less than 2 miles from Santee Alleys. Be prepared to walk though.

A bit pricey but overall worth it

The location of this hotel is great if you want to explore Japantown or Koreatown or Downtown LA. Parking is of course pricey, but anywhere you stay in this area, it's going to be and Miyako was on the slightly more affordable side for valet. Staff is very friendly, helpful, and responsive right away for requests. The little Tokyo Village behind the hotel is great for shopping for knick knacks or getting a snack. Rooms are clean and a good size. One downside is the tour guide info desk was not that helpful. We inquired about a couple things: LA garment district, and bus tours. The desk agent didn't speak much english so we guessed it was mainly for Japanese tourists...so that was a downer that they couldn't answer anything for us. If you have a rough plan or idea of what you want to do, and a map (or phone w/ GPS) you'll be just fine.

I WANTED TO TAKE THE MATTRESS HOME WITH ME!

The air conditioner really worked. The bed was sooo comfortable and I slept "like a log". I was right in downtown LA and, though the blocks are long, I was able to walk to public transportation. The staff helped me to park at a different garage near the hotel to save me $10.00 a day. The TV had CNN as well as local LA stations and other cable channels. I had breakfast every morning at the Japanese mall just steps from the hotel. Prices in LA are outrageous--$4.00 for a cup of coffee in many places!!--but the deal I was able to snag was great. The room regularly cost around $190.00 a night--I tried to get a second room while I was there for a friend and couldn't get it because they were sold out. I'd definitely use Cheap Tickets again and if I was in LA I'd stay here.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Use the Metro. It beats traffic, it's fast but it costs $1.50 each ride. You need a "TAP CARD" to use it and that will cost a one time fee of $1.00. It's available in the Metro at one of the machines at each station. A week's pass--unlimited rides--is only $20.00. Just add money to the "TAP CARD" at the other station machines if you need to, so don't throw the card away.

Best location, however...

The location is perfect. It's in the center of all the Japanese restaurants, and is right next to the Little Tokyo train station so it is extremely convenient. The room is clean and is quite a big room. However, you really need to try your very best to avoid corner rooms. My room faces right to a huge multi-level car park, so there is no view at all. In addition, the network is EXTREMELY TERRIBLE. My laptop was disconnected to the internet time to time and the top speed is around 100kb/s (both wireless AND wired, yes even wired connection won't help at all), usually staying at around 16kb/s. Basically it can't quite load pictures, not to mention videos and stuff. So bottom line, avoid corner room. P.S. I went to the exact same hotel in Oct 2013 and it was completely fine. Maybe it was just bad luck for me to stay in a corner room this time.

Visit LA for Christmas

We visited LA for Christmas and had very pleasant experience staying in the hotel. The room was decorated in Japanese style and stuff was very responsive to all our request. Also little Tokyo area around added to Christmas charm. The hotel is close to downtown and highway, so it was easy to travel to Hollywood, Universal and Beverly Hills to enjoy holiday spirit.
