ABSOLUTELY MARVELOUS EXPERIENCE!!

The hotel was absolutely wonderful. An extreme value for the money. What you get is high-end hotel accomodations for a budget hotel price. The rooms were very nicely appointed and the hotel staff was the friendliest that I have ever encountered. The valet parking was very, very helpful and takes away completely having to worry about the safety of your car. A very, very nice amenity. There was a 19.00 a day charge for the valet parking but the public garage was 17.00 and anyone who knows LA knows that this is an absolute bargain for the convenience, safety, and piece of mind. Just drive to the door, step out and they take it from there. I would not hesitate to stay there again and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a high-end hotel experience at a budget hotel price. You won't be disappointed with this one!

There's a great Korean barbecue place across the street as well as several other nice Japanese places. The fashion district with marvelous stores is walking distance and there's a nice inlaid shopping area next door to the hotel.

Outstanding staff - Clean and convenient

The Miyako was conveniently located near the LA courthouse where I had business. Price was quite good, staff outstanding, room comfort above average. Dining facility was only average but there were few customers. Food service was excellent. Food price was reasonable but food quality only average. The only negative was appearance of chairs in the room - showing scratches on chair legs and table - attendant to age. Carpets were very clean, beds excellent, towels plentiful and of good quality. Draperies were well hung and well maintainted - and windows clean. I recommend this hotel.

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.
