Per usual, everything was excellent. The staff was more than helpful, particularly the auto valet!!

Room was so incredibly hot and dry we had to sleep with the sliding glass door open all night. Because of this, the traffic noise kept us up all night. Not a restful experience.

Friendly staff and great location next to shops/restaurants in Japan Town. Only issue: only one chair in the room with two people staying there.

Nice clean hotel. Great location and good parking

Amazing lobby and bar! Great small touches in room and hotel. Bikes were also great. This hotel is a wonderful place to stay in a great neighborhood.

Stylish, friendly, well located this is a great hotel In Japan town. The rooms are small but nice. The hotel is older but nicely upgraded.

Liked a lot !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Loved the decor of the lobby/bar area - nice and funky

Owners really cheaped out on this renovation. The lobby and bar area will make you think that you are staying in a top-flight boutique hotel. (And brace yourself for the kitschy faux-Asian iconography, which might be offensive to some visitors to this Japantown neighborhood.) The rooms are spare, virtually no in-room conveniences, and the renovation seems to have not included sound-proofing of balcony doors.

Love thus hotel—-beautiful and comfy furnishings, great bar, and excellent service. I enjoyed that it was in a lesser visited neighborhood and exploring some of the many Japanese restaurants and stores. Would love to stay here again.

Warning Orbitz customers. This hotel has been redesigned in the last several years and they are charging extra mandatory amenity fees for things like wifi and filtered water in the lobby. The mood is less a classy hotel than a crossover between a yoga studio/Restoration Hardware showroom/and dance party. While this might appeal to some, the tiled over bathtubs, and lack of door on the bathroom areas might also deter others. The vibe is not worth the money. Try other hotels first before you spend extra money on what is usually complimentary before you stay here.

Absolutely fantastic!! Will definitely be staying there again!

Hotel located in nice area in japan town Setting great with restaurants with shirt walking distance More suburb rather than city

Very nice hotel, but could be a bit noisy from street noise

The hotel itself is very nice, checking in was easy the atmosphere is very modern and everyone is inviting. The bed was uncomfortable and the amenity fee is just another way to nickel and dime you. I would return if they got rid of their amenity fee.
