Very clean hotel with a great location

It's located in the center of Japan Town in LA which you can access to great Japanese restaurants and bar. I would come again when I visit LA again in the future.

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.

Fun in the heart of Little Tokyo

We loved being able to step out of the Miyako Hotel and walk to museums (Disney Hall, Japanese American National Museum, Geffen Museum of Contemporary Art), unique restaurants (watch your noodles being rolled and cut at Monzo) and great shopping. Not far from an Urth Cafe in a suprisingly industrial neighborhood!

Clean room in a perfect location

This hotel is located perfectly in little Tokyo and you can get to the most attractions by metro. To down town you just need to go by foot. Ideal for family.

Good but a little overpriced.

Hotel Miyako is well located right in the middle of Little Tokyo and close to the Union station. Although advertised as a Japanese hotel nothing really stands out except for a Japanese themed spa on the 3rd floor. The rooms are clean and well maintained but surprisingly the bathrooms had no exhaust fans and the Wi-Fi was spotty. Overall a good place to stay but a little overpriced for what we got.

My experience with Miyako

Staying in Miyako was very different from the lobby. However, the room design was exactly same as any other hotel. The bed was clean and I loved biden that installed in the bathroom. However, there is no fan in the bathroom. Plus I was very unhappy with a fact that I have to pay $14.00 for each day for parking. Hotel staff said there is no wave for hotel guest.

The Perfect Hotel for Nisei Week

The location along First Street in the heart of Little Tokyo (or J-Town, as we called it growing up) was perfect. The staff worked extra hard to give me a room that overlooked First Street so we could watch the parade from my room -- a plus if you have elderly parents like I do.

Great location- reasonable price

Can't beat the location for visiting Little Tokyo, Japanese American National Museum, the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, and lots of restaurants & shops. Friendly, accomodating staff and clean rooms. Spa located in the hotel. About 3 blocks from City Hall. Less than a mile to Los Angeles Opera, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Ahmanson Theatre, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Mark Taper Forum, Museum of Contemporary Art, Pueblo de Los Angeles, Olvera Street and Union Station. A little further for Chinatown.

Daikokuya, across the street from hotel, has the BEST ramen...the lines outside prove it! Ebisu, on E 2nd Street, a great izakaya! Be sure to try the different flavored mochi ice cream treats at Mikawaya in the Japanese Village Plaza, entrance just down the street from the hotel.
