Favorite hotel in L.A.

There are many reasons to love the Miyako. The rooms are very comfortable, meaning you get nice fluffy beds and duvets, free DSL and WiFi and Japanese toilets that have more buttons than most cellphones. I wish it had a pool, but the location more than makes up for it. It's right across the street from Daikokuya, one of the best ramen joints in the country. There's karaoke close by and some great Japanese markets.

Nice Place

We are members of several art museums in LA so finding a reasonably priced hotel right in the middle of LA that has contemporary, spacious, and clean rooms was great for us. We arrived in LA at noon went to the Watts Towers, MOCA on Grand and MOCA at the Geffen. We were really tired but the Miyako Hotel was only blocks away. Next morning we were ready for LACMA. LACMA opens at noon and check out time for the Miyako is also noon so no gap with no place to be.

Reasonably priced hotel in LA

The Miyako hotel is conveniently located a block from the Metro yellow line and less than a block from a very cute little Japanese shopping plaza and the Japanese American National Museum. Although I would not have wanted to wander around LA in the dark, I felt reasonably safe walking within the hotel area in the evening. The hotel itself was reasonably priced, the staff were all attentive and very courteous, and the lobby was quite nice. The room felt a bit worn and in need of a renovation (some bathroom fixtures leaked and the tiles and carpet looked a little tired). The walls were also a bit thin so it was easy to hear people watching TV or talking next door. Although we were initially told that there would be no charge to check into our flights and print out boarding passes, when we went to the business center, we were charged for both. However, given the prices of other hotels in the area, my husband and I found that the convenient location and reasonable cost for this hotel outweighed most of the negatives, which is why I have decided to give it a four-star overall rating.

If you like Japanese food, the restaurants in the nearby shopping plaza had the BEST Japanese meals and sushi we have ever had. (and yes, we have eaten sushi at some major cities) One of the restaurants here actually invented the California roll. How cool is that?

Great priced hotel in a unique location

I was very satisfied with our stay here. The hotel is in a fantastic location -close to downtown L.A. and in the great Little Tokyo area. Hotel was within walking distance to lots of Japanese restaurants and shops. The room itself was spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and there's a great cafe and gift shop inside. The only downside was the parking. You can have valet parking for like $20 a day or you could do the self parking for about $17. The self parking was a bit annoying b/c you have to take an elevator to the garage and the elevator was soooo slow. You could take the stairs but they are dark and smelly. Other than that, I'd definitely stay here again.

good hotel for the price

This is a decent hotel for the price. Rooms could use a little upgrade. The bathroom sink was cracked, everything else was ok. It's right in Little Toyko, so there's plenty of restaurants to eat at in walking distance. You have to pay to get into the spa. The rooms were a bit lumpy, needs new mattress. Parking is 17 bucks a night, so we just drove around and found street parking. You'll just have to move your car by 8am or put money in the meter. We saved a lot of money by doing this.

family vacation

The first room was nice and clean. The second room smells like cigarette, even though this is a non-smoking hotel. The clerk refused to change room until the manger and the engineer both agree the room smells like cigarette. Otherwise, it was a pleasant stay.
