    This review is only about the upstairs bar. Run seamlessly by the "iron fist in the velvet glove" also known as Mummy, a charming woman I would not want to cross, and her smiling team of pretty young Japanese waitresses. On any night of the week you can find small tables of Japanese men in town on business, ordering bottles of scotch as if there were no to-morrow, singing Japanese songs hitherto unknown to me but now oddly familiar. Also several groups of regulars including but not limited to an Asian theatre troupe, whose singing is dauntingly professional, local asiaphiles and of course the  addicts!  I freely admit to being a karaoke addict by the way and dont want to change. This bar has indeed greatly contributed to my addiction with its friendly vibe, excellent song book and multi-culturalism. Also you really get to sing, not like in some of the larger places where you are lucky to get to go once. It's even  non-threatening  for the neophyte !

    What is not to love about a hotel that has a bidet and that is so close to Club Satisfaction (at the Bordello/Little Pedro's)!

    After Yelping my way through eateries, haberdasheries and lamaseries (well, maybe not so much the last one), I was finally compelled to sign up for a Yelp account and write a review, solely on account of the basket of awesome that is the Miyako Hotel.

    So Saturday night, at a tick or two past midnight, exhausted of flesh and just a smidge delirious of mind, we decided to forgo schlepping to my friends' house in the valley and instead tried to find a hotel near downtown. Hotel after hotel yielded little more than frustration and boggle-eyes ("You charge *how much* for a single?"), until we decided to try the Miyako, a place we'd always seen on jaunts into the Little Tokyo village. Much to our pleasant surprise, the Miyako not only had vacancies, but undercut every other hotel we'd called by well over $60, at least.

    The front desk lady (super nice, wish I'd gotten her name) upgraded us for free, into a room on the top floor that had a pretty decent view of downtown. And that bed, man. I could have done a full rhythmic gymnastics set on that thing, it was so huge. Not that I could, on account of not having any rhythm, but it's still good to have options. The room was wooden-panel-and-paper-lanterns classy, with a lot of huge, fluffy pillows on the bed (lots of pillows are kind of my thing) and an infra-red flashlight in the closet (entirely suitable for lightsaber duels). And, as mentioned by others, the bidet in the bathroom. 'Nuff said. The Miyako is situated in a great area, too -- Little Tokyo never really seems to draw all that much foot traffic, which boggles my mind, because there are so many cool restaurants all within a five-block radius or so. We didn't have much time the next day for breakfast, so we just popped over to the village square next to the Miyako and grabbed delicious pastries at Yamazaki Bakery. Conveniently located to the hotel? Indubitably. Delicious? Most definitely.

    So, in sum: Ginormo-sized rooms. Elegant, if not flashy, room appointments. Stealth bidets. Walking distance from delicious croquettes, weiner bread rolls, and other assorted gustatory delights. Super-nice staff. And all this for $130, at midnight on a Saturday night in downtown L.A.? That'll do, Miyako. That'll do.

    I had my first ridiculous "Lost In Translation" moment here at the lovely Miyako Hotel karaoke bar in downtown LA's Little Tokyo district. There are some times in your life when you'll remember a frozen snapshot of an evening... you find yourself more than a little drunk, having gotten into a car with a couple of complete strangers that are kind of hot, only to find yourself singing a duet of a Wilson Phillips song at 1AM. That was my night. White girl rocked it. Unforgettable and highly recommended.

    Fabulous hotel. Fabulous staff. Fabulous rooms. Fabulous location. Double Fabulous spa. Triple Fabulous Shiatsu Massage. Walking distance to both MOCA's as well as tons of awesome shops and restaurants in Little Tokyo, including the yummiest mochi at Fugetsu-do across the street. I had the best massage of my life at the Spa at Miyako Inn.

    Read all the reviews before I went and decided to go. This place was so inexpensive yet well worth every penny. I loved everything. My room was upgraded just by writing in the comment section on my reservation!!! The staff was awesome. The Ohjah Lounge wildly entertaining,drunk people and Karaoke always fun.True the Spa is small but again inexpensive. The Valet parking the 20 bucks a day pays for itself. The room itself was extremely clean. The bidet was hilarious to me but my girl loved it...used it every time she sat on he toilet...LMAO!!!! I had a secret love affair with the shower the water pressure was intense and I loved it!!! The restaurants around the place were fantastic and I will review them separately. The bed was to die for. I work nights and usually sleep in the day so its arduous for me to unwind...man I hit the bed like a rock and knocked out!!! TV was an awesome flat screen watched a little CNN...DVD player in room was a great touch. I also will be purchasing some Aveeda products, I forgot how much I love that soap.. Everything was better than I anticipated. I always consider the things the bad reviews say the most. I feel bad for the people who had bad experiences there. I also suggest if possible to get the executive room. I was in room 1101 top floor nice view. Its Downtown LA so there is the usual drawl of Downtown that can worry people but it was a nice sector of the city. Highly recommend a weekend excursion to get away if you are hiding from friends and family..lol!!!

    Nice, clean and reasonably priced place within walking distance of downtown LA (where you may not spend much time, though). It is surrounded by (mostly?) mediocre Japanese restaurants. The DVD-player in the room was a nice touch.

    i would have to say im very impressed. Not only was this place a good value, but the rooms are comfortably and tastefully decorated. We were able to  get the executive room, which was a nice room with a flat screen TV, and luxurious sheets.  The hotel is located in the middle of Little Tokyo, making it even easier to hit up the japanese shops right next to it . What makes it even better is that it is super close to a Pinkberry and  a Yogurtland! Which means yogurt trips on your way back to the hotel! Overall I would definitely recommend this place to those looking for a quality hotel for their tight budget.

    Read the reviews, thought I found what I was looking for -- great location, fair price, decent rooms.  I must have entered the twilight zone!   Because it wasn't anything at all like I read.  Although I paid the price of the executive room, if this was considered an upgrade, I had to wonder.  It was a bogus all around -- bad service, awful room, nothing worked.  And I should be really pissed at my friend who recommended it to me, but it's not his fault -- though he didn't believe me when I said they wouldn't change my room!

    I'm writing this to warn others, and if you decide to stay, more power to ya.  And if this wasn't your experience, then tell me WHAT'S YOUR SECRET?!

    WHY SPEND YOUR HARD-EARNED CASH HERE:  Location, transportation, local attractions
    (Walking distance to both MOCA's and Disney Concert Hall, near two subway stations and Union Station, close to Highway 101, view of City Hall, Little Toyko, shiatsu massage, tons of Asian Restaurants, the Yamazaki bakery in the mall, mochi ice cream, Pinkberry, shopping, parks)

    RUN AWAY FAST:  Service, amenities, basic creature comforts, bathroom, parking, room layout
    (No heat in room -- could not get it fixed and COULD NOT CHANGE ROOMS!, the worst smell in the world in the room, could not get more pillows or blankets (even though the heat didn't work), no cable, old tv that didn't work right -- not a plasma, bidet didn't work nor did the heat, no closet (just some hangers on a rack in the hall), refrigerator didn't work, bad coffee, expensive breakfast, charges for ALL calls, nasty-grams from housekeeping if you weren't out by 10:30am, small room, noisy stairwell next to room, overcharging for parking, lame front desk service)

    Yeah, I'm really disappointed.  I'm easy going, love to travel, can handle setbacks.  They saw me coming and decided to recoup losses by charging  high prices and putting me in the worst room ever.  Seriously, the room smelled like it hadn't been used in ages, nothing worked, and when I couldn't switch rooms (tried three times!).  Last straw was when they sent the bellman to fix my heat, who then told me I didn't know how to use the thermostat, but he couldn't get the heat to work either.  That was totally the worst.

    The Miyako basically put a bad spin on a good trip.  Never again.  Nuff said.

    pros

    - little tokyo is an amazing place to stay b/c not only is it cool but its well located for going other places, right in the middle
    - the service is super nice, but watch out for how they tally the valet, they will try to rip you off
    - its clean clean clean
    - and cheap, comparatively
    - the best ramen in town is across the street

    cons:
    - getting the room you see in the pictures= getting the executive suite for 165.00, this is just my opinion but i think the upgrade is worth it.
    - the valet rip off thing is creepy, but as long as you know....
    - definitely a great place to lay your head down, but not the vacation in itself
    - the pillows are too high and the bed is super firm
    - the fancy toilet is actually just an add on, kind of takes out the allure

    Location, Location, Location!  Right in the heart of the only place I like in all of Los Angeles, Little Tokyo!  The Miyako is affordable by L.A. standards and is clean, comfortable & more than convenient if you're there to enjoy the most authentic slice of Japan outside of Tokyo.  Give yourself a real treat and stay New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.  NYE is a ghost town but NYD is full of excitement with a traditional Japanese Taiko concert, colorful costumes and lots of good cheer :)

    Staff is typically Japanese: very nice, very attentive. Once upon a time this place was cool. Now it's where drunk obnoxious d-bags go. It's still a nice place to grab a drink, but the crowd is killing it. I'll stick with Bar C.

    Stayed here on a last second notice and I was scrambling around looking for another hotel within my allowed 10 minute time at the New Otani hotel. Travelocity to the rescue! Booked the Miyako (as recommended by the well observing Kolbe) for $109. Done deal, no bs'n around and its right in the heart of my town, lil tokyo.
    Reception room was fairly large and rooms are standard size, but the beds were MEGA plush.....1000 count linens and looking outside, I can see it all.....Far East Cafe and all the lil shops which makes lil Tokyo. Valet parkers to every staff members here greet you well and no attitudes at all here. Very comforting and I will prob stay here more often now that I realize how close it is to Marukai...lol

    My family and I stayed at the Miyako Inn while visiting our daughter in Los Angeles. They upgraded our rooms from standard to executive just because they were available. Very nice surprise!

    We had a beautiful view of the snow capped mountains. The rooms were clean and spacious. The japanese toilet was a plus....since we have one at home, we are used to a warm toilet seat!

    Every person we had the pleasure of dealing with, from the valet, to the front desk, to the women in the resturaunt, were so nice and very accommodating to us.

    We look forward to Spring and the cherry blossoms!
    We'll be back!

    Please note that I made a reservation for the deluxe room but instead was upgraded free of charge...thanks to the staff at hotel to their Executive room. I was indeed impressed by their hospitality and services that I received during the stay. Upon arrival, the outside of the hotel doesn't seem like much but that all change the moment you walked into the hotel. With the complimentary upgrade to their executive room I was excited to see what a 3 star hotel was like compared to the 2 star hotel (Rode Inn) that I had the night before. I can honestly say that there is such a huge difference that I do not want to go back to a 2 star hotel. Instead of your usual motel 36 knock off bedding sheet, these were down comforters! For those who complaint about the downs and softness of the bed, I believe that those individuals are used to sleeping in parks and on rocks. That they can't tell the differences between a motel 36 bed sheet and a down comforter. Going back to the check-in, received the keys to my room (915). First thing I saw when I opened the door to my room. A Panasonic 42inch lcd on top of the drawer...WOW! The bathroom itself was nice and in fact they carried Aveda care products (soap, shampoo and etc.) The only down side to the bathroom was probably the towels as they can be a bit hard, I recommend you bringing your own as I did. Continue walking pass the bathroom on the left was my giant king side bed with 3 huge pillow (synthetic down filled), these pillows were easily 3ft by 2ft in size. Beside the pillow, I really did enjoyed the down comforter that come with the package. Honestly I can say that I do enjoyed the soft bed with down comforters. It was just soft and plush, I way I imagined it to be. There was the lazy one man couch (enjoyed it), the work desk (dark cherry finish)...real nice by the way. Over all I am satisfied from what I saw and experience during my stay. They are definitely comparable to Tokyo garden if that is what you are trying to compare. But for the price tag, I would choose Miyako over Tokyo Garden as you get more in terms of quality of room package vs. ammenities.

    This is my home away from home. I've been coming here for at least three years now. I've never stay here but I do come here for shiatsu massage and spa.  My business can get pretty stressful and crazy so this is where I hide from the world - at least for couple hours. If you ever do visit please lower your voice when you're in the massage room.

    The price is affordable. If you're a member, the cost is $55/hr. And the quality of massage is great... of course, that depends on who you get. After massage I would visit Daikakuya for ramen dinner.

    All in all a good way to end a stressful day.

    This is the only hotel I've stayed at where you couldn't hear through the walls- amazing!  Room was very clean, with a posh-business decor.  The area is really cute since it's like a mini Japan town, and you can walk to the old Chinatown and the street with Spanish-Mexican goodies.  Plus, there was a bidet!  At first you're apprehensive about it, but it's a neat gadget.  

    Parking next door, yes JUST next door, is much cheaper than parking in the hotel's lot.  The Korean restaurant across is amazing!

    Restaurant on site serves good food and drinks. The lounge and room is ok it seems like its stuck in the 80's. I felt like I was staying in a two star hotel. They have the most uncomfortable beds and pillows. I would recommend spending a couple of more bucks and stay elsewhere. Thumps up for the bidet toilet.

    My shoulders were hiked up around my earlobes when I realized I needed a massage. I was sick of Thai after having 3 lackluster encounters and followed the advice of a friend who recommended shiatsu in Little Tokyo.

    I took a hint from yelp and headed up to the 3rd floor of the Miyako Hotel to indulge in a soak and massage.  I was right on time but the friendly gentleman at the front desk pushed back my appointment so I would have additional time to melt my muscles in the jacuzzi tub before my beating.

    The massage room is open with platform tables. Super comfortable. Vickie gave me a perfect massage. She obviously loved cracking people & in addition to kneading my pains away she gave me a few quality cracks (neck, back, toes, wrists) which immediately relieved pressure. After the massage I jumped back in the hot tub, then to the steam room, then the sauna before leaving. They validate parking!!

    In the hotel lobby I grabbed a green tea latte (they have boba!!!) which was a perfect treat after my beat-down. I will be back ASAP.

    Over MLK weekend this year I got a wild, never before experienced urge (aka shit weather) to venture south to LA to meet with my San Diego based brother. The bro is under 25, I don't have a license and we are both cheap bastards, so we decided against renting a car. Thus we needed a reasonably priced, centrally located hotel. The Miyako was perfect. It is close to nearly every bus line in town, not too far from Union Station and right by strip mall-ish but adorable Little Tokyo. We paid ~$99 per night and felt this was a total bargain.

    We arrived really late the night we checked in, and we were upgraded to a suite on the top floor. The room was huge, tastefully decorated and comfortable, the linens narrowly escaped coming home with me, and we had free, relatively fast wireless internet. The room had a view of the mountains, a flat screen TV, toilets with heated seats(!) & Aveda goodies in the bano. To top everything off,  the "Special Japanese Toast" at the cafe in the lobby was scrumptious. Kick ass!

    Two issues:

    ~I checked my bank account on the second night of our three night stay, and there was a debit to my account in the name of Miyako Hotel for $175 over the rate I expected to pay. I know this is standard practice, but those working on a fixed income should definitely be aware of this. I did not receive any warning.

    ~DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING AT THIS HOTEL!!! I left my phone charger in the room, and they took forever to send it, charged me a $10 convenience fee and charged me for shipping. This is why their rating was bumped down to 4 stars; seems like crap customer service to me.

    Great location, right in the middle of Little Tokyo.  Decent rooms, decent prices (through hotels.com ).  Convenient valet parking.  Not so convenient spa/gym hours, as I like to use the gym in the morning and ended up having to run around downtown LA (ick!).  Otherwise, a nice place.

    Standard Room Review (3rd floor)

    Pros:

    -Japanese toilet in bathroom
    -Not very expensive to stay here-good deal
    -Seems like safe enough location
    -Lots of Japanese food around
    -Cheap street parking
    -Quiet & uncrowded area

    Cons:

    -Employees not so friendly
    -Rooms look tired & in need to renovation.  Or at least new furniture & carpet.  The desk chair fabric was filthy & darkened.  Stains on carpet & even 1 on duvet cover. Also, the bathroom counter & sink were chipped in multiple places.
    -Cordless phone in room ancient with static & no speakerphone & antenna that actually lifts up-old school style!
    -Pillow are giant & super high
    -Shower head is really low.  I'm short (5'3") & my head was practically touching it when I stood underneath it.  Shower spray is also non-adjustable & really hard.
    -Standard room does NOT have Aveda products, rather something cheap looking made in China.  Seriously, the soap bar is like what you get at a cheap motel.
    -No free gym
    -No free printing (even boarding pass) in business center

    Excellent location for a great price on hotels.com ($120/night).   We enjoyed the fine sushi places and Daikokuya literally across the street, we felt safe walking around and valet parking, though $14/night was very convenient.  I'd stay here again, it's 5 min drive to Walt Disney concert hall/Amanhson theater.

    I've not stayed in the hotel recently, but the newly remodeled spa is beautiful.  It used to be pretty drab,  but it  didnlt matter because I went because the Shiatsu massage here is better than the  Shiatsu massages I received in 5 star hotels in Japan.

    Awesome experience! After visiting and interviewing 8 other downtown hotels for rooms for our guests for our wedding, we decided to reserve a block of rooms here. Every guest at our wedding said they loved the hotel and were treated with the best service. After little cousins "decorated" our hotel room for our wedding night, I thought I would be fined but all was forgiven. Attentive staff made sure that guests didn't miss their flights and we received a fabulous rate in comparison to other hotels. Elderly ladies felt safe and the young ones enjoyed partying at Far Bar across the street.  We booked 35 rooms for 2 nights and it could not have been better.

    Just got one hour of massage! Feels so wonderfully great! I sure needed it. The Miyako Spa is on the third floor of the hotel.  Deep muscle massage not for the faint of heart.  They asked if I had any tense spots, I said my lower back and gluts were tight from taking a beating from recent running stints.  She really worked on that area...really feels good now.  Great massage, solid experience. I will definitely go back.

    2 nights (Fri & Sat) for $109 a night.  Not too shabby.  If you're on a budget, you might want to inquire about staying at this hotel.  The executive room (with 1 King) was nice, clean, and spacious.  There was a plasma TV, plus a cordless phone in the room.  I stayed on the 8th floor, and I was able to access their wireless internet, even though the signal was kind of faint.  The showers were a bit rough.  the flexible shower head shot water out at an impressive 100 mph!  It hurts a bit.  Plus, even when it was adjusted to disperse water as high as possible, it would only reach my neck (I'm 6' tall).  I had to squat a bit to wash my hair.  The bidet was interesting....when I was playing around with it, and it sprayed me all across my chest, and crotch.  I thought it was sexy.  The gf thought otherwise.  

    Overall, a good value.  Parking is about $19 a night (with unlimited ins-and-outs).  4 stars!!!

    The hotel room was ok.

    We came at around 330PM and they still made us wait to get the room ready.

    I'm mainly angry because the valet stole my sunglasses out of my car and pretty much there wasn't much to be done sadly.  I told the concierge but yeah he didn't care.

    So after today's harrowing experience at the hellhole they call the Rodeway Inn, we made our way to Little Tokyo to our Plan B accommodations at the Miyako Inn.  

    The location is superb - the front of the hotel is right across the street from TWO ramen places and a number of little shops and restaurants, around the block is the Japan Village mall, which houses a ton of other shopping and restaurants.  When we walked through the front door, I immediately breathed a sigh of relief: the spacious, well lit lobby was inviting and warm, and the front desk staff was sweet and about ten million times more competent than the shithouse we were at earlier in the day.

    The room was huge - two double beds and enough room for a lounge chair, gigantic flat screen TV, and long desk that both of us were able to set up our laptops on and get work done (free wireless!  woo-hoo!).

    Big plus for stocking the loo with Aveda products.  And once again, I am doubly impressed by the high tech toilet in our room, this model includes seat warmer, digital adjustment for water temperature and pressure, and of course, buttons for "front" and "back" cleansing.  I *love* Japanese toilets now, they make me feel like a lady.

    I stayed here while attending a conference in the city. It's close to a couple different Metro stops, the 101, and Union Station. It's located in Little Tokyo which seems a little dicey in parts but I felt safe. The room was very nice and clean. The tv has limited cable but comes with free internet so I just watched some Hulu. The staff was very friendly and you get a free continental breakfast every morning. The rooms also come with the Japanese toilets, which means there is a control panel so you can do various things that a US toilet does not.

    The valet dude was very outgoing and a good start to our experience in LA after a long drive. The room itself was ideal for the stay,  spacious, comfortable and clean. Even the cot we requested was pretty nice. I like the location, safe and practical for everything we were looking to do. The restaurants and bars in the neighborhood seemed very nice, the place we ate at was delicious and super cheap. Unfortunately the front desk and gift shop attendants were so indifferent about us that it left me with little desire to go back. I prefer to give my money to people who get the concept of good customer service. Smiles and eye contact mean a lot to a tired traveler. I even got an annoyed look for asking where the bathroom was in the lobby. It turns out the locked lobby restroom doubles as the employee restroom hence the staff are a little territorial about it.

    Reading the reviews, there must be very different rooms all over this hotel.  My experience was pretty negative.  For my one-night stay:  

    Good:  Front desk, valet and cafe staff excellent.  In fact, I dealt with two valet staff, one on arrival and one on departure.  Both were extraordinarily helpful and charming.  Bed was very comfortable, room safe a good size (held my 17" laptop and more), loved that window opened, in-room refrigerator was convenient.

    Bad:  Otherwise stay was disappointing.  Hallways & elevator very shabby and poorly-lit.  Room needs repair (example: board covering a/c unit housing hanging an inch off wall), rug was dirty and stained, furniture was cheap, bathroom amenities, especially the soap and towels, were cheap.  Supposedly had cable for Internet but no cable was in the desk drawer as it was supposed to be.  When I called to have a cable delivered, the estimated delivery time was over 30 minutes, so I just went to bed.  Overall depressing. I was traveling for business and for the price, I expected better. Front desk management was rude & uncompromising when I had a slight problem.  

    Parking is provided by a company other than the hotel.  Hotel says self-park is $17 but don't let the hotel charge you that much!  I only had to pay $5 because I arrived before 9:30 a.m. Most stays would be $10 if you pay the garage's posted price instead of the price the hotel wants to stick you with.

    This is a solid three-star hotel that I'm sure generates a lot of clientele from its on-property spa and massage facilities.  For all the times I've visited Little Tokyo, I've never stayed here, preferring to stay at a downtown hotel. But being the Hotwire loyalist that I am, I decided to skip the Westin Bonaventure and the Wilshire Grand and check the place out.

    Couple of things pop out about the Miyako. First, the valet parking is a terrific deal at $14/day.  You can park for cheaper in one of the many parking garages in the area, but the valet is worth the extra few dollars.

    Second, free wi-fi.  Nuff said.

    Finally, you can't beat the location.  It's right in the heart of Little Tokyo, with numerous restaurants and bars within a short walk. Maybe more important is the walk back after a night of drinking.

    I don't know the first thing about LA and its neighborhoods and such. All I know is that on my few trips to Japantown before, it was quite and clean, so why not stay there? Especially since the room was only $109/night on a holiday weekend. Can't beat that.

    Walk in to the room. Pleasantly surprised. The photos on the website are actually old. The rooms are way more modern than in the photos. New linens. Comfy mattresses. Flatscreen LCD tv with a dvd player below. And they use Aveda products in the bathroom. NICE!

    Me, Eugy and Es decided to get massages in the spa. It's $60 for an hour massage including spa entry fee. WHAT?! That is DIRT CHEAP! The inside of the women's side is nothing fancy, but it had all the necessities. The massage was really good too. Totally worth the $60.

    If Eugy and I come back to LA, I'm sure Miyako will be our go to spot.

    5 stars for the English song list. Max Studio has the same list too. Love love love for the song list. 3 stars for the service. There are karaoke lounge politics you must play to get your song played. Hence... 4 stars.

    I went with a group for a friend's birthday. The bar is on the 2nd floor of the hotel. All the servers wear kimono and geta, wooden clogs, and speak limited English. Overall it's pretty cheap. $1 per song or $18 for 2 drinks and songs of your choice. When we got there, the bar was crowded with older men - white and Black men who can sing in Japanese. I'm guessing they were stationed in Okinawa, or they were huge anime fans and/or Asian fetish type guys. Everyone in the bar was super friendly, and just there to have a good time.

    Because it was a Saturday night, it did get a lil crowded and there were more songs in the queue than they could get played. That's when karaoke lounge politics kicked in. By flirting with the servers and buying them drinks and shots to do together, we got our songs kicked up to the front of the line. You also have your wallet emptied and you get drunker, faster.  We also started building coalitions with other groups in the lounge. We figured out what songs we had in common so we could ask for those songs first. Ahhhh... karaoke lobbying at its finest!

    My friends were there to karaoke, not sing. I believe there is a difference! However, there were some folks there by themselves to SING! They seemed like regulars.  Nice folks, but damn... they can SING!

    I hear if you go for karaoke in the middle of the week, there are less people and you can get your songs easier.

    If you want the same song list (cuz it is the BOMB!) or you prefer the private rooms, head over to Max Karaoke, which is also has locations in Little Tokyo, Sawtelle, and Torrance.

    Valet parking at $19+ per day (incl tax and all) isn't bad when you can go in and out as you please especially in LOS ANGELES where you see signs up for $4.00/15minutes in some areas.

    The spa is small, but it does the trick. No fanciful decor needed. The shiatsu massage is $60 for 1 hour and you can't beat that!

    The hotel room itself is clean and it doesn't hurt that the bottled spring water is only $1.00. The Bidet in the bathroom is a good place to poke fun at some of your drunk co-horts to wake them up! ;-)

    Miyako, being at the heart of the Little Tokyo where you feel like having a good night of drinking cold Sake without the driving, is an absolute find!

    I looked on hotels.com and found the Miyako Hotel in Little Tokyo. I figured just based on the pictures that I wouldn't be able to afford it. But at $117 a night, it ended up being the best deal!

    I got into town late, 330 am to be exact. They still had valet parking available and I checked in and went up to my room. It had a king size bed, nice white damask stripe sheets and a matching duvet cover on the down comforter. The king bed was THE MOST COMFY bed I've EVERRRRRR slept on outside of my own bed at home. The towels were nice as well. Everything in the room was perfect! The 50" plasma TV with no HD programming made me laugh but at least the TV worked!

    We were on the 7th floor. The hotel was quiet and our non smoking room didn't smell at all. It had the smell of no smell which meant it was clean. haha

    The bathroom had a bidet in it and a nice large shower.

    Overall I loved this hotel and would definitely stay there again!

    first off...what a great location. Location is everything, and Miyako got it right on the spot. A 30 second walk puts you into the entrance of Japanese Village Plaza? its right where all the good stuff is.

    The Shiatsu Massages...oooh dear goodness was it great. I never had one before, but if the others were as good as the ones from Miyako, oh man. However the spa facilities were sub-par imho. I mean, really anyone who comes here is probably coming for the great massages, and not really for the spa. Its got a dry and a wet sauna which was nice, but i dunno, i was expecting more. Maybe i just set my expectations too high. Well regardless, the massages. go for the massages. My girlfriend loves them, and i loved them too. So she's saying everyone should get one. Even if this is just my yelp review.
    The valet parking is great too. Very friendly and helpful. 18 bucks overnight parking? not bad considering its *italicized* location~~~
    Housekeeping was surprisingly good. have you ever been to a hotel that took FOREVER to bring up extra towels? yeah, i've been there too. No bueno. But Miyako...oh man, they're quick. and i mean like...youhadsomebadtacos quick. speaking of which, there are butt-washing toilets from japan in every room! it was awesome. and their seats were heated. which made it even better. once you use a butt washer...you just cant go back.

    overall my stay at miyako was definitely 4 stars. i'd say it should be 5 stars, but it looks a bit old some decorations and furnitures needs some touching up.

    oh they have cartoon network.

    The best points about Miyako are that it is in downtown LA, next to little Tokyo and a really good value in the lower $100s.  If you get a room on the upper floors you'll get a decent view of LA.  The tv does have some Asian channels which were cool but not very entertaining for someone who doesnt speak any Asian languages.  

    I've stayed here three times and plan to do some again.

    The room was big and they have everything that you need, even DVD player.  But I don't like their service at the front desk at all.  I called to the front desk around 3am (because no one picked up da phone at the Housekeeping) for an extra blanket becasue it was cold.  You know what the guy was saying to me?

    Here is the conversation:

    "What wrong with the blanket that you have in your room?" He asked.
    "Oh..nothing  but I just want to have an extra one becasue one blanket is just not enough."  I said.
    "Well, how many people are in your room?"  He aksed again.
    I was like WTF...and I said,"we have two people now, so am I OK to get another one then?"
    "Sorry, when u check in, we put down 1 person for your room.  If you need another blanket, we need to charge you."  He said it in the DAMN tone.

    First, my friend reserved the room on line and requested TWO beds.  HOWEVER, when we checked in around 4pm, they told me they don't have anymore two beds and they only had one King Bed.  Since we were two friendly girls and we did not think this is a problem, we took the room without saying anything.  And we got this kind of service at the end!

    This was my second time staying at the Miyako and it definitely won't be my last. The staff is always so friendly and accommodating. The rooms are decently furnished and the location is ACE.

    It's right smack dab in the middle of Little Tokyo (my favorite part of Los Angeles) and is accessible to many of my favorite shops and restaurants.

    Their bathrooms have bidets, Aveda shampoo and other care products, as well as a decently sized shower with a wide bowing curtain for even more room.

    They provide an express checkout for those who checked in with credit cards, but I always opt for a first hand check out just in case anything goes awry.

    we've stayed here twice now.
    both times were absolutely perfect.
    we have no complaints.
    the staff is friendly and helpful.
    the rooms are very clean, nicely decorated with all the necessary amenities - high speed internet, cable tv, dvd/vhs player, iron/board, plush linens.
    there is a restaurant on the 2nd floor.
    there is a spa which we haven't tried yet.
    the lobby has a small gift shop and coffee house.
    the rates are very reasonable especially when you book thru hotelbook.com .
    the parking is convenient because it's valet only.
    it's right across the street from the best ramen place.
    down the street from the japanese village plaza.
    we'll prolly stay here every time we go back to l.a.

    If you're looking for a weekend getaway, I'd definitely recommend Little Tokyo. My boyfriend randomly surprised me with a room! :) So much good food, art, boutiques, and random bars. And Miyako Hotel is in the perfect location; literally a minute walk from everything there is to do in town. Park at the parking garage on 1st for $3-5 all day and overnight with no additional fees in comparison to the ~$20 a night for the hotel. The prices for the room itself are decent; about $120 a night for a deluxe room. $1 for a bottle of water, so BRING WATER! Don't expect anything glamorous because it definitely is far from it. No flat screens, no modern furniture/art, no iPod deck... as simple as simple gets. The staff isn't overly accommodating, but they're decent. Everything is a litttle tinyyy bit below average, but again what makes this place great again is that it is in the heart of Little Tokyo. Hope this helps :)

    I'm sad I missed the bar =(  But I was much too tired after Wicked to go there.

    I booked a room here a couple of weekends back and upon walking in there, it was a lot smaller than I thought it'd be.  The place where you're supposed to stand in line to check in was cramped.  The people at the front desk were nice though.  She upgraded me to a better room without me having to ask her (I booked my room through their website and used my AAA discount, which came with an upgrade if available and a complimentary breakfast =)).

    The room was okay.  The bed and furnishings were new and very nice but I didn't like the tub.  It didn't drain correctly and at the end of my shower, I was standing in my own dirty water =T  The bathroom also made me a tad nervous because it reminded me of all those Japanese horror movies x_X

    Anyways, good place to stay for $89 =)  From all the other reviews, I wish I had checked out their bar...haha...

    The Miyako was Miyucko. Sumimasen! It looks better from the outside. Inside, I felt like I was in some motel. It baaaarely makes the cut for a hotel. The amenities were BARELY "standard." There was nothing REALLY exceptional about it. It was DRAAAAAAB. I felt like I was in the Hilton in Vegas (next to the convention center---WORST HOTEL ON THE STRIP, bar-none---STARTING WITH THE MANAGEMENT): so run of the mill, nothing special, nothing worth mentioning, nothing worth revisiting. The Miyako was a WHOLE LOT OF BLAAAAAAAH. Depressing.

    Breaking it down in a list because I love lists:
    1. Great signage on the building.
    2. The lobby needs work. It is off center & two seconds into it, I thought I was entering a Japanese indoor super market.
    3. Remove the DIY-installed bidets.  
    4. An actual closet to hang the clothes would have been a nice touch, instead of just a rod--next to the door--to hang everything up in plain view--having the door hit the garments as you enter/exit. SARDINE-LIVING ISN'T FOR EVERYBODY! :-D
    5. A box spring would have been EPIC. I felt like I was practically sleeping on a floppy mattress on the floor. HAHAHA!
    6. Mentioning anywhere on hotels.com that the fitness center was under construction would have been decent. BOO.
    7. It lent me to appreciate The Kyoto Grand SO MUCH MORE, the following evening. I would not stay at the Miyako again. It should have been priced $50 LESS than it was & by all means, it should always be priced $50 LESS than The Kyoto Grand. They are not in the same league.  

    SO THERE YOU HAVE IT.

    I booked a room and was kinda fearful of the tired looking rooms that they have on their website. I'm the white comforter hotel bed girl with organic/natural toiletries.

    Well, I got it! The white king bed was so comfortable and the flat screen TV was at just the right angle and size to lazily lounge and watch.

    Big fluffy towels. Mmmm.

    The room comes with four bottles of Crystal Geyser water that you can purchase for the reasonable price of $1 each. I like this because #1 I'm not getting scammed on a $5 bottle of water and #2 I don't have to leave my room in the middle of the night to search for a corner store in downtown LA.

    Only downer was the shower. I abhor slow drains.

    I stayed here for a while when I first came back from living in Japan. I also stayed here again when my Japanese (now ex) boyfriend came to visit and we wanted a nice room to ourselves.

    The hotel is nice, the staff sucks. They are rude beyond belief and they don't discriminate on race: they hate everyone equally. I've seen them berate guests for the most retarded reasons, and they've been plenty rude to me. Although when I stay for any extended period of time in a hotel I like to open my suitcases, spread out, and do my own cleaning (because I don't like housekeepers moving my stuff, possibly going through my luggage and taking stuff, and I'm actually better at cleaning than housekeepers are if only for the fact that I don't leave my hairs all over the towels and floor)  they actually threatened to throw me out if I didn't let housekeeping come in and clean every day, even though the room was 10 times cleaner after my being in there and cleaning for a few days, than when I checked in. The second time I came to the hotel after completing my first stay, they said to my face (in front of my boyfriend) "we'll only honor your reservation if you promise to let housekeeping do a full cleaning EVERY SINGLE DAY" otherwise we will refuse you service.

    Upon my first check out, they actually claimed that I'd cost them money because my room would need to be "deep cleaned" after not being cleaned for so long (like 5 days?) and that they would need several housekeepers to do the job. I stuck around my floor out of curiosity...a single housekeeper was done cleaning my room in about 15 minutes. There was virtually nothing to do in there other than vaccuum. It certainly was cleaner than when I checked in since she'd missed a bunch of dust and stains on the furniture that *I* ended up cleaning,, and she had left her long black hair everywhere. I've honestly never been soo insulted and so puzzled at the rudeness of staff ever. Bringing it up during my next stay in front of my boyfriend weeks later was ridiculous, as well. If I were a total pig who'd left trash and empty pizza boxes and stuff everywhere and hadn't changed my own towels during my stay or whatever, then I'd understand, but as it were they were making a scene about something just for the sake of making a scene.

    As for the rooms- they are great if you get the upgrade to the Tokyo Executive. The other rooms are gross and old and not worth it. The building is very old, and even in the updated rooms, there is some rust and mold here and there. The windows do not open and therefore there's no air, which sucks. But realistically the prices are a great deal for downtown, it's walking distance to all of Little Tokyo and many bus lines, the hotel is clean and the beds are comfy. Just AVOID talking to the staff about anything, and make sure you let the housekeeper in to go through your suitcases and leave tons of nasty hair behind every single day so that they don't have a hissy fit. God forbid you actually like your privacy and have the capability of emptying your OWN trash can for a week- Miyako Hotel will have none of that.

    Having stayed over New Year's at their Torrance property and mentioning the way I was treated to their general manager, he told me that he hears complaints about the Downtown location's staff from guests ALL the time, and that many guests switch over to the Torrance location because they can't deal with the aggression from the Downtown staff. So it seems they have quite a reputation even within their own hotels.

    I'd like to say though that there is ONE very very sweet young Japanese woman who is there usually in the mornings who's been nothing but wonderful. However, one person vs the rest of the miserable staff isn't redeeming enough for the BS they put me through. As a contrast I've stayed a week at the Kyoto Grand hotel down the street with no housekeeping and have never once been bothered about it. If Miyako gets some new staff I might give them another go for a special weekend but until then NEVER AGAIN.

    I love the location of this hotel. Every year for the past few years I stay here for an Anime convention. If you want to be with in 20 seconds of several Japanese restaurants and bars this is a great place to stay. The customer service is adequate (not bad by any means, but nothing to write home about).

    Overall the price is not bad, but the biggest draw is definitely the location.

    This hotel is SKETCH and completely unsatisfactory, I do NOT recommend it at all! If i could, i would give it ZERO stars!! Stay anywhere but here unless you want to get screwed over by passive aggressive, unprofessional staff who will quickly revert to "no engrish" if you have a question or issue they don't want to deal with.

    We were looking for a place last minute after an exhausting exodus from a festival, and ended up going into Miyako to get a room rate. The woman behind the counter quoted us a double-bed room for 173, which was way too steep in our opinion, but then we went back in to ask about spa utilities, and since they had a sauna open till 12, we decided to bite the bullet and get the room.

    Somehow, it ended up being $250 instead of $173...apparently the taxes on the room were around $25 (which is ridiculous and unheard of everywhere else), and on top of it all since we paid with a debit instead of a credit card, she put a surcharge of $50 on our card as well--even though she said we wouldn't be charged for the room until after the stay--needless to stay, the story was continually changing, and never clear, and the hidden fees were a low blow.

    Once we got the room, we tried to park, and parking was $20 additional bucks...so we decided to park in the mall parking lot, and when we tried to get into our room, we were confronted with cards that didn't work and an angry woman yelling at us from behind the door--they sent us to the wrong room!! So after going back down to sort it all out again, we went down to the spa area to finally get our relaxation on. HOWEVER, as soon as we got there, we were told it was an ADDITIONAL $15 PER PERSON to JUST use the sauna/jacuzzi.

    Now, some might not find that over the top--but since we actually went BACK in to inquire about the accommodations, and they never mentioned the hidden fee when we went back in to specifically ask about it, it was pretty offensive--on top of which, the room was dirty, small, and DEFINITELY not worth the 200 bucks--we could have stayed at the Standard for that price.

    When we went to complain at the front desk, the "manager" became very passive aggressive with us, and tried to write off everything as if there were no exorbitant/hidden fees and that he had told us about the spa costs--so he basically lied to our faces.

    Needless to say, we immediately cancelled the room and asked for our money back--and then, to top it all off, we were put through 20 minutes of hell with the receptionist, who couldn't even guarantee that we would be refunded with a receipt--we ended up getting screamed at-literally-by the manager, and finally another worker sheepishly offered us up a letter of intent claiming that we would be reimbursed our $250 within 48-72 hours. Which, is weird, since we weren't supposed to be charged until afterwards?

    Regardless, the entire process was a complete clusterfuck, and the staff completely failed at any attempts of being professional or hospitable. If i were you, I'd find a super 8 versus staying here, because you'll be getting the same accommodations at about a third of the price.

    The hotel was 3 stars, price was reasonable for NYE, and amenities were not too shabby. BUT the asian lady with the dyed-blond hair working at the reception desk was rude, curt, and utterly unhelpful that I had to reduce my rating by 1.5 stars. When people travel and pay for a hotel, they expect to be treated as guests. This woman was condescending and arrogant. On top of that, she mis-programmed our room keys and gave us wrong directions for accessing the parking lot.  Not sure how the management will continue to employ people like that who'll only drive away customers. To be fair, the rest of the staff, however, was consistently friendly and knowledgeable.

    Hey you..

    ..yeah you

    you quality-seeking, money-grasping, consumer you.
    i dare you to go here.

    It's 2am in the morning. I had the brilliant Idea of checking out SoCal for its universities and had no complete plan whatsover. Took Tues-Thurs off from my job, and I'm at my friend's condo figuring out where we're going to stay the hour before leaving.

    I try to find something reasonable; something around $100 a night. Went to hotels.com , found Miyako, and decided to book it on Miyako's website. While the rate at hotels.com is cheaper, there was about a $10 difference in service charges.

    I am a broke college student that doesn't necessarily have to take this trip but feels pretty burnt out about life that I want to leave home; to yet save this measly, small-percentage-of-my-trip $10.

    Left around 3am or something & arrived @ L.A.  after like what, 6+hours & went to the Little Tokyo Shopping Center; because our check in time was supposed to be 2pm & it was only around 10am.

    Went shopping & ate, took a nap in the car w/ two friends and then got fed up w/ waiting & checked in early @ around 12. The people working valet are real kewl. We got the two double beds in our reservation, but the desk mentioned the availability of a room w/ a third bed [that thing that looks like a semi-couch but isn't] & we took it.

    Room has a good amount of space. Everyone raves about the toilet. Well, I was fucking around w/ the buttons & for some reason the thing takes a while to recharge its water spout or whatever it is that cleans the nasty-nasty. So, iono, maybe our toilet has some drama w/ a previous customer & is taking it out on me or something.

    The bathroom had one sink on the side of the door. Iono, maybe I'm expecting too much for two sinks, but whatever-- the toilet can count as a sink i suppose. Maybe more like a water fountain.

    There's a boba place across the hotel that we never checked out cuz we were shit-assed tired and plopped on the comfy, well sized beds. [Short Asians, can't really say much about that]. Only stayed one night anyway. (Spontaneuity and proper thought finally revealed that we had a friend in Irvine. yes, we are a bunch of stupids for even paying for a room but, I got to check out some Universities).

    Out the window you can see the wonderful phenomenon of city life as-is the pollution in the air. But, it still has a good street view below & of buildings around the area.

    Overall--
    It's a neat place to stay at a good price (around $108 we had it, before service charges & that shit). Didn't really get to check out the spa, but for sure that's what I'll do on my next actually-planned-out visit there.

    Valet in & out parking privaleges are THA BOMB. Leave around 12am & come back 2am after a night's cruizin and eating out for some random dessert that you crave for; just what a broke and underpaid college worker should be doing when life is like shit in a toilet that's overflowing and clogged--

    We were in LA to attend the Golden Gods Award show. We were really looking forward to visiting Little Tokyo. We chose the Miyako because of the similarities to Hotel Tomo in SanFrancisco. The evening we arrived we were checked in by a very kind and gracious clerk and honestly every staff member we encountered was equally impressive. Our room was clean and spacious and we enjoyed the hotel coffee bar. Little Tokyo was not a disappointment as we were mainly interested in finding a perfect bowl of Ramen and visiting the museum, both goals were accomplished. I look forward to staying at Hotel Miyako in the future. The location is perfect, close to Nokia theater, and highway entrance. Also, a cab seemed to be right out front every time we needed it!

    Aside from them charging me an extra $30 bucks because we had 4 people staying the room, I did enjoy my stay.

    The room was very clean.  The Staff was very friendly, prompt and professional.  They provided me with everything I asked for and answered any questions I had.  It's in the heart of L.A.'s little tokyo, so if you're used to the surroundings it may seem a bit dirty/ghetto.  But once you walk into the hotel that was a totally different story.

    Yes they did charge me more for the extra guest, but that was my bad for checking in with all of us there, but they did at least upgrade the room.  The price was VERY reasonable and our stay was great.  I'd recommend this place if you want to stay in downtown L.A. for a reasonable price.

    Parking is VERY bad here

    The best value in Los Angeles hands down. Normal charge for valet but for about $130 you get a quiet room a big flat screen to watch stupid stuff if u like that, some decent bath products if u forget your own, a Japanese toilet and a lovely bed to wake refreshed. Domo arrigato
    You can walk to Drif too the pimpy Japanese bike shop.

    This place is nice and you can get some great deals (this is downtown LA after all).

    The rooms are clean, the staff is nice, the location is convenient, and Daikokuya feeds my inner Japanese soul.

    So we had two rooms, four people, one car.  We were there for one day but they managed to charge double for the valet.  When I called they matter of factly tell me I had two rooms.  So?  I had one car.  "OH."
    When you only check in for ONE night with ONE car, do you just automatically charge the 2nd room parking?!  I even have a receipt that says ONE VALET PARKING and to me, that means, they went back and decided to charge another day of valet parking without authorization.

    Otherwise, this place is recommended but always check your credit card bill and keep your receipts.

    This place is just ok....rooms need a major makeover. Simple things like having a lamp with an outlet would be great. The bed was fine, but the bathrooms are in need of much improvement. THe night we stayed for whatever reason, none of the room keys could be programmed to unlock rooms. THis was the case for several guests. Also they charge for internet per device...not cool.

    I've stayed at the Miyako a half dozen times over the past several years, and have never been disappointed. I usually pay around $100/night (using a 3-night discount via Orbitz), and get a super-clean and quiet, comfortable room that I could lounge around in for way too long.  The staff is always very, very courteous.  The downstairs (tiny) cafe is kind of average, but so are their prices...they don't gouge you just because they are convenient.  Probably because there are several other options just outside the doors.  

    Parking is ok.  I don't use the valet, just the adjoining garage.  There's a daily fee, but the hotel's always given me a discount without my even asking.  Nice!

    The surrounding area is cool, lots of interesting shops and restaurants.You won't go hungry! I've walked around late at night, and yeah, there are some homeless folks, but nobody aggressive.  Even took my (at the time) 15yr old niece to see my brother's band play a show around the corner, and we felt perfectly safe.  Late night restaurant options just across the street, as well.  That is BIG, for me.

    I haven't indulged in any of their spa services, but I've heard good things.

    Walking distance to several museums, and the Disney Concert Hall.  Really pleasant walks, too...tree-lined streets, interesting mix of architecture.  

    Central location, easy access to multiple freeways.

    I'm fine staying at a cheap motel, because I accept that I'll get what I pay for.  But at Miyako, I always feel like I'm paying only a little more than motel prices, and getting a lot more for my money.  Seriously, a LOT more.

    I hate being the bad guy by writing a review that would bring this hotel down a bit, but really, I liked this hotel. I just think people are over-doing it with their praise.

    We arrived at the Miyako Inn for a one night stay. The gentleman at the valet took our car in and the young lady at the front desk processed our booking accordingly. They were pretty efficient and generally nice. That's a good start. The lobby was rather small, but comfortably set with welcoming sofas and soft lighting. I actually liked the lobby a lot and would have liked to have a cup of coffee there or something. That's another plus. Here's where I start to give out some sticks.

    Our room was on the 6th floor and getting there was relatively easy. The problem was the hallways, they were amazingly thin and the ceilings were not tall. It made me feel like a mouse. I guess that's not bad if you were born in the year of the rat, but I'm a Monkey. I need the open space, well at least in a hotel that is. My second little gripe is that when we got into our room, one of the panels of the wall was exposed. Not widely, but it was noticeable. They weren't done fixing it? Everything seemed to work and we were only there for one night, so I didn't bother calling the front desk. So that's why I'm giving this three stars instead of four.

    I really want to give it three and a half stars because of it's location: It's in the heart of Japan town (Little Tokyo? whichever you prefer) and right across the street from Daikokuya ramena and Mr. Ramen. That's already a plus for me. Furthermore it's across the street from a quickie mart and one of the weirdest Japanese novelty stores ever, the Cure Shop. It's equipped with Lolita uniforms and Gundam models, fun stuff! The folks are friendly all around and they actually do have Japanese NHK channels if you're into that kind of thing. If you want to mess around with the 3 button toilet, it's all there too.

    Would I recommend this place for a business trip? Totally!

    The staff was nice and very efficient, the rooms were clean, but honestly, some of it seems a little run down. The furniture and TV was nice, but the carpet was old. Then, the bedet in my room didn't work. I was so exctited to see a bedet in the states, then my hopes of a squeaky clean bottom were dashed. I was expecting the hotel to be like the zen getaway the Miyako in SF is. Also, my room was blazing hot. I had a hard time sleeping.

    The lobby is pretty small and the seating seems old and dingy. I'll give 3, but it's really 2 and a half stars. I was in LA for a conference and one of my collegues got a room at the Westin for less; and the Westin is a 4-star hotel. I was disapointed.

    One great thing about this hotel is the location. It's close to a many little shops and restaurants. There's a neat plaza right next door.

    Aside from the $17 a night valet parking, the place is nice.  An entirely Japanese staff and theme dominates the hotel and the surrounding area (there is a Lost-In-Translation-style arcade in this "mall" beneath the streets.....very cool, and about 30 sushi shops and other Japanese restaurants in the area) and everyone is very pleasant.  I do wish they had better exercise amenities, but they do have a Japanese bathhouse/sauna with limited equipment that it is kind of expensive daily.

    I'm not a big fan of karaoke options in downtown LA and this seems to always be my default place.  I've been coming here for years and back in the day it used to be an authentic little tokyo hidden gem.  Nowadays the word seems to be out and they've capitilized on it with a $6 cover charge they don't tell you about and automatically add to your bill along with a 20% automatic tip and a strick no separate bill policy; forget even trying to leave your group early, if one leaves, the whole group has to cash out.  Such a pain.  With all that being said, they have a good choice of songs and the drinks are strong.  I doubt I'll be back though....I've got a true hidden gem in k-town that's keeping it real with private rooms, fresh songs and great prices.

    3. Nice rooms
    4. Marble floors
    5. Lock box

             (kudos to all who got the Demolition Man reference
    9. nice cafe and shop in lobby
    10. its in the heart of Little Tokyo

    I had a great stay here last week. Booked a room through priceline name your own price for $75. When I got there, I chose to upgrade 2 levels to a Tokyo Executive Room for an extra $25. The hotel is smaller, but still very nice. The hotel staff was very friendly. The Tokyo Executive room was great. Not a great view, but has a really cool Japanese feel to it. The decor was nice, the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathrooms have really cool Japanese toilets with heated seats, bidets, etc. Check out their website for pictures of the different rooms.  

    We didn't go to the lounge or restaurant in the hotel, because the location of the Miyako is so great, it's right in the center of Little Tokyo. There's plenty of shopping, museums, and restaurants right there. The Weiland Brewery is right across the street and has an awesome late night happy hour from 10-1:30, which is nice because you can just walk back to the hotel after.

    The valet parking is only $14 a day with in and out privileges. That's a great great price for LA.

    Overall, we had a great stay at the Miyako.

    I really enjoyed my stay here.  I came here several years ago, on my first visit to Los Angeles.  The hotel staff were all incredibly sweet, friendly, and attentive.  Also, being pretty young and not exactly wealthy, the rates here are good.

    I arrived too early to check in, and the staff at the desk offered to watch my luggage for me at the concierge desk while I went to get lunch and wander around waiting to check in.  I thought it was a nice touch - looking out for the comfort and convenience of their patrons before they'd even checked in is always a good sign.

    The neighborhood the hotel is located in is incredibly safe, interesting, and super hip.  It's in a prime location.  It's on the same block as the Little Tokyo Information Center (they're insanely helpful, and because my first visit to L.A. happened before I owned an iPhone, the man at the desk actually took the time to educate me about the Los Angeles Public Transportation system, and the Downtown and Weekend Dash - all of which absolutely rock.  Anyone who will tell you otherwise obviously hasn't been around public trans very much in other cities).  The hotel is also on the same block as the Far Bar (a hip, hidden outdoor bar located in the alley between two buildings).  The Arts District is only a quick jaunt, too, and there's also all of downtown, and a Buddhist temple that's open to the public.

    The main drag of Little Tokyo is also located directly behind the hotel, only about a two-minute walk around the building, and includes many traditional Japanese restaurants and hip sushi bars, cafes, coffeehouses, a Pinkberry, popKiller vintage shop, and a lot of Japanese gift shops, in addition to other non-Japanese businesses including Starbucks, some yogurt and smoothie places, an Italian restaurant or two, and some other stuff to keep you entertained.

    My room was big, clean, and comfortable.  The bathrooms were also very clean and the shower was *awesome!*  The staff remained attentive and friendly throughout my entire stay, from pre-check-in to check-out.  The really nice thing was that, even at 6am on a Sunday morning, there was a taxi conveniently waiting just outside the hotel doors to take me to the airport.  So, so awesome.

    If I'm ever in need of a hotel during my next stay in Los Angeles, the Miyako is definitely high on my list of places to stay, and I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Los Angeles.

    Im very unhappy with my stay at miyako. My sister and i got bitten many times by bed bugs here. I have about 20-25 bites all over my body and they are itchy and uncomfortable. My sister has 15-20 bites on her body too. How can a 4 star hotel has bed bugs?! We did not stay at motel 6. It is unbelievably irritating. We paid about 150 for one night and 20 something for parking- almost 200/night.
    We did not pay this much to suffer from bed bugs. I'm angry. When my sister called to inform about the bites, the hotel clerk non sympathetically said someone would get back to us. What a bad customer service. If she puts herself in our shoes,she can't be that way. We are very disappointed with the hotel.

    Three stars = get a little less than what you pay for.

     Not sure where the $130/night and free upgrade were per other reviews.  Our tab was $170 (incl. $20 tax) for 1 night in standard room, $65 for the breakfast buffet (restaurant on 2nd floor).  Ouch.  No prices listed for the buffet, our mistake for not asking. (I think it was about $18 per adult, $8 per kid.)  Good mix of standard Western (real scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, toast..though no pancakes for the kidlets) and Japanese fare.  Service at the restaurant was lovely, the ladies really took care of the boys.  We then noticed some of the diners had little yellow slips of paper that were some kind of discount but we weren't offered those at check-in.  Maybe you have to ask for that too?

     Thank God we saved a little $ parking in the garage next door (a little confusing to get to the ground floor but look at what we paid for breakfast, we can't be the sharpest tools in the shed).

     Room appointments weren't bad.  Decent size, modern furniture (could stand to be touched up in worn spots).  Standard room has 2 clean, double beds but hard as a rock.  Woke up with a wicked backache..but the Japanese dude screaming from the alarm clock is enough to make you quickly forget your name let alone your back.

     As for location:  couldn't ask for better.  You're across the street from Daikokuya and a few steps to Japanese Village Plaza.  (Side note:  Daikokuya wasn't worth the wait..ended up at Mr. Ramen a few doors down.)

     Now for the infamous toilet.  At this point I'm seriously questioning how far up the food chain I really am.  Heating the thing up, no problem, but the bidet? I'm used to the old fashioned kind.  This one takes an engineering degree.  At one point, all four of us (mom, dad and two boys) were in there trying to figure it out, each pushing buttons with one poor child waiting for the shock of his life.   And yes, it was the engineer in the family who finally got it to work.  I don't know what combination of buttons he pushed but I'm pretty sure he also called the mother ship.

     All in all, not bad but not great.  A better deal on the room and breakfast would have scored it another star.

    Thanks to the yelpers on here that lead me to pick this telly.

    Good and Cheap hotel to relax at. Got the 2 bed executive suite, luxurious room, nice service, japanese vibe to everything including the ass washing toilet.

    Located in the middle of lil tokyo - awesome eateries around the building. The nightlife around the place was enjoying as well, karaoke / bar with geisha's on the 2nd floor. And the little out door mall next to it was lively with local music performances @ night.

    only con: ice was on the 4th floor  -_- we were on the 11th.

    I'd highly recommend this hotel. It's a great value. The neighborhood is one of the few in Los Angeles you can explore easily by foot. The bed is comfy (I can't say that of most hotels). Free HBO. Free broadband internet. Affordable pricing. Included breakfast.

    A few qualifiers (not exactly downsides), though...

    1. The garage next door is sometimes significantly cheaper than valet. Consider parking over there. It isn't really that far from the hotel (it's literally next door).

    2. You get broadband wired internet but no free wireless. Weird.

    3. It's nice to get a breakfast. Just keep in mind it's not gourmet. You get literally coffee, juice from concentrate, microwaved croissants, and then Activia yogurt. That's it.

    I'd stay here again for sure.

    Stayed here in the summer of 2011 for just one night and had a nice experience using a AAA discount in an upgraded room. Professional staff who were able to accomodate our needs in a very convenient location in Little Tokyo. This is a hidden gem for those looking for a budget hotel in downtown LA but it does book up during big events (X games for example). I think it is in a great location close to lots of restaurants and shopping in Little Tokyo as well as public transportation, banks, etc. Take a look and see if it fits your needs.

    EDIT: it should be noted that i left my wallet there. i didnt realize it till i was in merced county on the way back. i called, they said they had it. nice. they said to call back when house keeping is open. i called the next day. they said no problem, told me theres a $10 fee, sounded reasonable. they asked me how i would like it shipped (i would pay the costs of course). apparently this happens often. the lady i was speaking with said she just fedexed a wallet to japan.

    i got my wallet two days later with everything in it INCLUDING $210 in cash.

    i was hoping for this, but expecting the worst, an empty wallet to be returned. its nice to be proven wrong sometimes.
    **************************************

    so the night before heading down to la, i was asked, where are you staying?

    "....."

    hey hun, where are staying? miyako hotel? why the fuck are we staying at a japanese place? its in japantown? why the fuck are we staying in japantown? whats that? me shut up? oh. ok.

    thats basically how the conversation went. the lady knows whats shes doing, i hardly second guess her judgment calls. shes right on things most of the times. shes quickly gaining almost 100% trust in her calls on everything and anything. thats pretty good cause im one controlling ass mofo.

    damn good call with miyako.

    great room. its modernish. clean. has a lcd tv. they use aveda products, of course i took as much of the bathroom toiletries as possible at the end of our trip.... i too, am asian.

    great location. right in front of hella japanese shops, japantown *apparently its called little tokyo*, a short drive to ktown, and very close to hen a buddys house. could not have picked a better location for this trip.

    the spa, though not fancy at all, had all that i needed. a steam room, sauna, hot tubs, cold tub and a massage.....one note though on the massage. its done in a open room so make sure to ask for the disposable boxers to wear under your robe.

    not sure if this place is related to the old miyako hotel in jtown in sf, but just like it, i like this place. its nothing fancy, but for what you pay, its a great place to stay. i would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    We stayed overnight while changing trains in Los Angeles--the hotel is a short cab ride from Union Station.  Booked through the hotel website and got a Tokyo Executive Room at $119  plus tax, or a total of $135.  

    Pros--The room was large, clean, attractive and well laid out.  We were on the seventh floor, but did not get much street noise.  The bedside lamps gave good light for reading, and the bed itself was quite comfortable.  The window can be opened a bit, if you choose.  Japan Town is interesting and feels safe.  

    Cons--The bathroom, while quite large, could have used more counter space.  The shower head was too low for a tall person, but can be removed and used as a hand-held.  The heater/AC unit was effective but noisy.  The gym can only be accessed when the spa is open, and the spa was not open during our brief stay.  

    Overall--We would stay here again for a short stay.  For a longer stay, we would want a hotel with a more accessible gym.

    The rooms are small, but they have a refridgerator. They also have a seat warmer on the toliet which has a built in bidet. If you're looking for a high level it only goes up 8 or 9 floors. There is a gift shop & eatry on the bottom level. You're right in the middle of Little Tokyo w/ tons of good food around the corners, but namely right across the street. Unfortunately you're about 14 blocks from the convention center, Staple center, & LA Live. It's about an $13-$15 cab ride one way if you're looking to go there. The internet is free, but it is slow at times, namely at night whenever is back from dinner. You do get a AAA discount when checking in.

    It's not worth the price. The hotel looks nice in the pictures, but is actually really dirty, out dated, and unpleasant. The area around the hotel is very dirty and unkept as well. If you are used to staying in nicer hotels, this will not be the place for you. Was not impressed at all...

    Great location, but room amenities are lacking. Big box TV still? Really, and this hotel is right in the middle of Little Tokyo!? I would have expected a more high tech environment here. They say they only offer wifi on certain floors and all the others have direct wired Internet. Wow, they need to definitely upgrade their Internet connections. I stayed in one of their deluxe rooms (kind of their middle grade room, they have standard rooms and executive rooms). So even though I was situated in a deluxe room, the bed was still a little old and lumpy (big boo on that). The shower head in the bathtub was too short even for me, and I'm only 5'4". They did have one of those cool super dance toilets that heat up the seat and wash your booty for you. Hahaha.

    Picked this place due to its location and price...also had decent reviews.  I have no complaints.  The king bed was VERY comfy and cozy.  The shower had great water pressure too.  Bottled water for $1 in the room, wait what, not $5 a pop?  Also bought three orange juices in the lobby and was happily surprised to be charged only $5.75.  Good customer service, clean, will definitely stay here again.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention the heated toilet seats and bidet!  I loved it!

    Great place, great deal. It's clean and minimalist but also very comfortable (some rooms are even on the luxurious side). To top it off, it is one of the most inexpensive hotels you can find in downtown LA, running about $110/night for a standard room. An executive suite is only about $160.

    There are cheaper hotels, mind you, but they just didn't aren't as comfortable, safe and lovely as this one, and they're probably located in a less savory part of the downtown area. The Miyako, however, is located in the heart of Little Tokyo, right in the middle of tons of dining and shopping. It's walking distance to a lot of the downtown attractions. There is a great coffeeshop on the first floor, too. Also: BIDET.

    I would have given it 5 stars, but they've changed a few things since I started coming here. When I first found this place, it was $80/night for a standard room. If business was slow, you could get the executive suite for that price. Tremendous deal. Things are bit more expensive now, but that isn't my major complaint. The real problem is that the price schedule is inconsistent--you might get one price from one employee and another from someone else. It's a bit frustrating, especially if you travel to town a lot and don't want to be paying something different every time.

    My advice: Book online.

    My boyfriend and I had the opportunity to stay at the Miyako hybrid hotel back in January for a wedding and LOVED it! We thought we would celebrate our two year anniversary at the Miyako in little tokyo and were a little disappointed. It feels like any other hotel you would stay in but with an Asian theme. First off parking is a per day fee, you could either pay $14 each time you take your car out or you can pay $20 for valet and don't have to worry about paying every time you want to go out. Parking at the hybrid was free unless you went for valet. The hotel itself looks nice and the rooms are clean but feels a little outdated. There was a little coffee bar and a mini fridge which was nice. We both went down to the spa relaken for massages and that was a plus. With our stay we also got free daily full breakfast that was delicious. Over all I would rate this place average. I think we were spoiled by the Miyako hybrid and were disappointed when we didn't get the same experience here

    Why I chose this place:

    1) It is the closest hotel from the Amtrak LAX station (an easy walk since I packed light that is also a pretty darn nice hotel. Relatively clean & simple & cool 80's exterior hints.
    2) Also happens to be in Little Tokyo (sweeet). Also about 2 blocks from the Little Tokyo Library Branch.
    3) The Tokyo Executive Room was very nice AND had 2 asian channels! KSCI & NHK TV.

    Thank goodness for the internet, Google Maps, & streel level view, right? ;)

    During my stay, if I wasn't out and about walking around downtown, I was in my room watching the awesome-ly giant LCD screen. 90% on either KSCI or NHK TV, 10% other (weather, hbo, etc.).

    oh hey hey, guess what guess what-----I saw this AWESOME japanese show where guests were invited to showcase their personal favorite methods of learning proper English grammar sounds. Like the "R" sound, i.e. These 4 guests were elderly experienced professionals who studied English forever and perhaps mastered the proper "sounds", as well. Really cool & funny stuff since "other" guests were invited to try those before saying some english.

    Super comfy bed, nice deep wood tones... they could've included those water bottles for free (or atleast a few) on the desk. The shower head only jets a single stream when given low flow; "rain" stream when you give it some more.

    I totally dig the "anti-lid/seat slam" on the toilet. When you drop either of them from the top position, at about 30 degrees they hit some kind of vacuum/shock absorber trigger so that they finish going doing slowly (no BAM). Nifty nifty. ^^

    Visited the Miyako for a single night as part of an adventure with my wife for our 19th anniversary. We were worried about how nice it would be for the price and location. We got the room via Expedia for about $120 (including taxes, etc.). How could it be as nice as the pictures? Even my wife (who loves nothing more than a very fancy hotel room) was pleased.

    Little Tokyo is a GREAT place to be if you want to explore LA. In just a short time, we went to great restaurants, shops, and saw may great LA sites. We loved the staff. The Bellman reported that he has worked here for 14 years.

    A couple things I really appreciated. Good iron in the room. Great soaps and shampoos, Very nice sheets and comforter, exotic toilet with heated seats and other features that made us giggle, water bottles that are only a buck if you use them, fridge, high-end TV, decent WiFi and free wired Internet, clean carpet.

    Whenever I stay in a hotel, I always use the stairs at least once. I did this at the Miyako and got lost. My attempt to find my way out led me on an unexpected visit to the spa (looks great!) and a kitchen (looked clean). This is a fine, fine place. We'll stay here again.

    Small but excellent hotel. I'm one of those people who don't really care for the staff unless they are either horrid or amazing, and for sure the staff here landed on the very excellent side. It was almost shocking how each and every one I encountered during my stay was so... NICE. Our bellboy even pulled a small prank the first time meeting him.

    The room we stayed in was one of the cleanest rooms I've ever stayed at. It was simple and modern, nothing to gaudy with a refreshing Japanese vibe (well, figured, it's in the center of Little Tokyo, which is amazing by the way!). The bidet got a few squeals and giggles from the bathroom though, which was lovely entertainment each night.

    The spa (jacuzzi, dry & steam suana, patio) was relatively cheap and absolutely beautiful. It was a wonderful experience staying at the Miyako.

    HELL YEAH! I absolutely love this place. I believe this is the second best hotel I have been to in my whole life. We got the vip suite. It was incredible! I couldn't asked for anything more spectacular...the bed was comfortable and the service was extremely humble.
    I would highly recommend this place. it is affordable and it will surely give you an incredible experience in LA.

    I love this hotel because it is located in the heart of Little Tokyo.  There are many places to choose from for food plus Little Tokyo plaza offers variety of shopping option.  The hotel is bit old but the service is great and the room is always clean.

    This place is conveniently located one mile off downtown la; Although, one mile can mean 20 min drive. The location is great nonetheless. Also, its relatively cheaper than other nearby hotels, roughly around $150.00 for a Saturday night.

    Seeing that this is located in Little Tokyo, you can find some awesome Japanese restaurants and bakeries downstairs. The neighborhood is great, with a large variety of sushi, Ramen, bars, and shops, in case you're looking for a quick nearby cheap bite.

    The room is pretty standard. No five star opulent hotel room but perfect for sleeping and showering. The room is clean, spacious, and comfy. The only dislikes, seeing that I am a girl that likes to primp before going out, is the bad lighting and no vanity mirror.

    Also, the hallways slightly smell of Chinese food.

    Overall:

    Location: 4 star
    Room:     3 star
    Service:  4 star
    Price:      5 star

    I really liked this Hotel. The people at the front desk were polite and professional. Great location, so many good places to eat and shop in Little Tokyo. Spitz is a great restaurant right around the corner.

    I stayed here on New Years with my girlfriend in the Tokyo Executive Suite, it was surprisingly very nice for the price. And it was on a the top floor with a great view of the Los Angeles Skyline looking west. So if you can try to get a room facing south or west.
    The Valet parking is only 19$ which is a great price for downtown LA, most places are $30+

    The toilet had this cool attachment on top with a bidet and a heated seat. That was hilarious trying to get that to work. Free Wifi, oh and they had a DVD player hooked up to the Tv thats awesome to me I've never seen that in a hotel room before.
    I would definitely stay here again, I had a great time.

    I stayed here for a week with my bf when his company had him working the E3 Convention for a couple weeks. I had read the reviews of the place and thought that I was going to be in for a disappointment. What I got was a pleasant surprise. I don't know if the hotel has done some renovating since some of the reviews were written, but I can't really say that a lot of the negative reviews of the room are warranted.

    My bf had a private room with a king sized bed and a huge 42" flat screen t.v. The bed was really soft, was nicely appointed, and the room had a modern feel to it. There was a nice little micro-suede chaise that I camped out on quite a bit, and a window that opened enough to let a breeze in (but not enough to drop a child out of).

    Things I liked: a mini-fridge that did NOT have a pressure plate in it, optional maid service, the seat warmer on the toilet, the Aveda products in the bath, free (albeit SLOW) internet, and a WONDERFUL housekeeper named Theresa. Seriously, she was awesome, very thorough, and I felt like she was genuinely an honest person. When she would clean our room, everything was spotless and replenished. Other housekeepers left much to be desired and overlooked many things.

    Things I didn't like: The shower. It's a handheld unit fit to wash cars with. Seriously, when I turned it on, I turned the water all the way on and it twisted, nearly jumped out of the bracket and began BLASTING the shower wall. I had to have the water barely on just to have "normal" pressure, in which case it started emitting a high pitched squeal. Valet Parking. It's okay to valet for maybe a night or two at $18 a day, but if you are staying longer than that and are mobile, park in the ramp behind for $10 a day instead.

    Late night food options around there are pretty scarce, we managed to get mostly Asian food after 10pm. The on-site restaurant Tamon is pretty awesome and they do room service as well (I believe until 9 or 10pm).

    Anyhow, you are right in the middle of Little Tokyo, there are TONS of food options, and you are in pretty close proximity to a lot of interesting places. Freeway access is pretty good, just pay attention to the lack of signage (welcome to CA) and the L.A. drivers that mostly seem to be asleep at the wheel.

    On my second visit to Miyako I was disappointed.  I'm a terrible insomniac anyway, but the overly soft beds and the three giant walrus-sized pillows made it impossible to get comfortable.  Having one person-sized pillow is nice - you can pretend you're spooning - but three foot-tall and two-foot-long pillows is two people pillows too many.

    The room was stuffy and I had to turn on the cool air to get respite from the stench of previous occupants.  

    They've switched to Aveda products which most people would love, but I'm allergic.  

    Don't be fooled by the offering of a continental breakfast, which consists of standing in a long line at the cafe to get two croissants and a cup of juice.

    The hotel bar makes you pay a $6 cover charge unless you sit at a stool at the bar, and it was so crowded when I was there that the waitress tried to force me to sit at a rejected bar stool that some patrons had shoved back about four feet from the bar.  

    The towels were soft, the shower was hard and hot, and the bottles of water are $1 each.  Rooms have fridges if you need one.  Bidet toilets still provide anal pleasure.

    I had a quick, one-night stay in the Miyako in downtown LA's Little Tokyo neighborhood, and I was quite impressed.  The room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and quiet.  The layout was a little awkward, with the bathroom door not opening fully because of a wall sconce behind it, but the bathroom itself was spacious and reasonably well-appointed (though it could use some updating).

    As you can probably tell from the pictures, the high-end Japanese toilet is the star of the show.  I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that now I want one.

    There's free internet in the room, but it's wired, and they don't provide a cable.  You might be able to get one from the front desk, but I was only there for one night, so I didn't ask.

    This is a very convenient location right across the street from Daikokuya and Japanese Village Plaza is right in the back. Along with many other shop open til late night, I feel very safe in the neighborhood. It is also very close to the Little Tokyo Metro station(the Gold line)  and one stop away from the Union Station. The public transportation is very important to me and my family since we rely on them very much. The Dash B & F line also run somewhat near it. There is also a Citi bank next door along with ATM machine.

    I got a free upgrade from the website and live in 908, and we face Daikokuya. It was cheap considered it was only 109/ week night and 129/ Sunday. (Rm Tax is $16/night). They even give us a $10 off spa coupon, but we didn't use it. There is a small fridge in the room, but we didn't know we have to turn it on until the next day. The water bottle there is $1 each, but at first we thought they were complimentary. But its still cheap, so we end up drinking five bottles of it. The only problem I had with the room is there is a minor problem with the door. There is DSL in the room and I love the Aveda products except for the soap. But the shampon and conditioner are GREAT. I like my bed firm, and I really hate the best western type of bed.

    i have always turned to my fellow yelpers for advice, and they have pretty much never failed me, except this time. I dont have very expectations for a hotel, i just need a comfortable bed, AC, clean bathroom, and good service. well, miyako has a clean bathroom, but that's about it.

    I checked into a deluxe room, and let me tell you, pictures can be VERY deceiving. I paid over 150 a night (with discount) and pretty much got a standard room with a cordless phone and a "nice comforter." really? 40 extra dollars for that? hmm, interesting.

    So let's start from the beginning, valet parking is almost 20 bucks. Maybe ive been lucky, but ive always had free parking at a hotel. So i parked next door in the little tokyo mall the maximum price is 10 bucks. The attendant told me miyako validates, cool. so i go to the front desk and ask for a validation, the man tells me that its 17 dollars to validate it. WTF? why are u charging me MORE than the garage. that's retarded. doesnt even make sense. how is that a validation? and as i proceed to ask, he starts talking to me like im retarded " ms., w******, there is no such thing as free parking." umm, yeah there is.

    so moving on, i go to the room, to see that its small, the beds arent super uncomfortable, but ive slept in MUCH better ones, for a lower price. and comforters? they're thick as hell. i dont think la needs this thick of comforters.
    i think the coolest thing is the bathroom. its pretty dang spacious (thats why its 2 stars instead of 1). . the toilet? its weird! but i guess, its a special touch. and the shower is nice! its super high pressure, and is good for a nice shower after a long day at the sd zoo.

    the ac? psh, its a fan. my room was hot, and no matter how low i put the ac, it was still super hot. and come on, its January.

    finally, the "continental breakfast" is suppose to be two croissants, juice, yogurt, and coffee or tea. doesnt sound too bad right? wrong, instead of the croissants, they gave me a slice of toast... cut in half -.- , made me kinda sad cause i was really hungry,

    overall, this experience made me very sad... this is what a call an " expensive hotel fail"

    Heated toilets...

    When I was nine I went to Japan and this one restaurant I went to had these heated toilets.... Freud would say I am going through my anal stage of development.. I say it was on that toilet seat in Japan where my obsession with bathrooms and how they are set up was born.... I notice looking in my ex number of reviews the bathroom situation comes up a lot.

    Our friends were staying here during an SBC UYE to the fashion district and we decided to spend our last night here.

    The room was awesome.. lots of space.. huge TV

    Has mini aveda products which I also loved

    Also has a small cafe which is nice (which has espresso and boba tea!)

    FYI: not a unionize hotel

    i chose this hotel since it was near Dodger Stadium for the LA Marathon. Great pricing, but by far the best thing about the place is the bathroom toilet. It has all of these settings to clean your butthole and you can heat your seat and the toilet water itself. That alone has made it may favorite hotel.

    It is also in a great location, right across the street there are plenty of places to eat and right around the corner is this little Japanese looking village area. Very happy that I stayed here. Next year I will be staying there again for the LA Marathon.

    Stayed here with my girlfriend. I dont think we will be returning to this hotel. One of the big turn offs is when you go to park your car the parking garage is terrible. The whole place smells like urine. The elevator has tons of graffiti and trash in it. Elevator a couple of times took forever to get to our level, so we took the stairs. The stairs was even worse! More pee and some unidentifiable trash and stains on the walls. When you finally get to the ground floor to the hotel it lets out into what looks like an abandoned Japanese strip mall. On to the hotel. Inside is nice. There is a small cafe to get coffee and sandwiches. The room was nice. It has a flat screen and directv cable. The bathroom was a little gross. The toilet had a  built in bidet. When i went to try it out a little spout comes out the side of the bowl and squirts water. TO MY DISGUST THERE WAS FECES ALL OVER THE SPOUT!!!.  I was totally grossed out. I will not be coming back to this hotel. And heads up about the parking garage!

    I stayed here last year  for my birthday weekend, it was a fantastic hotel. The bidet was different (though my other half has now decided he wants one). Mikado is walking distance to MOCA, and all the nommy nommy goodness that is Little Tokyo. We drove to Union Station, Olvera Street, and the Ahmanson Theatre, all just out of walking distance.

    The room itself was clean, and comfortable, but minimalistic in decor. I can't speak for the pricing (the trip was a gift), but I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Located in Little Tokyo district. This is one of my favorite places to stay when I'm in Downtown LA .

    We had the best customer service at Miyako. I was truly impressed with their hospitality, which is why we returned the following year.

    During our first stay, our flight was delayed for 4hours so when we finally landed in LA, we missed our check-in. On top of that my bf at the time, sucked at navigating and gave me the wrong driving directions to the hotel. I called Miyako for directions and apologized for missing our check-in time.

    The front desk person (I think he was the manager) on top of being super understanding and patient with us - voluntarily upgraded us to the 'Tokyo Executive Suite' free of charge (I had originally booked the 'standard' room, two grades below the Executive rooms). The room was in excellent   condition: clean, spacious and fully stocked with Aveda products. Heavenly king-size bed with 6 large down pillows, I felt so spoiled! We even had a bidet, lol!

    Located seconds from the Japanese Village Plaza (lots of restaurants and gift shops). You have to check out the Shabu Shabu House and Hibachi Korean BBQ at JVP,  we've dined at both places numerous times during our stay. The bbq beef at the Korean place was insanely good! There was also another Korean yakiniku place directly across the street from the hotel (can't remember the name) that had excellent sushi on top of their usual fare.

    Overall, a great experience. Warm and humble staff. I'm definitely coming back here when I'm in town.

    We had a pretty good experience staying there. good prices. the room was spacious though the ac kinda when it isnt on for a while. Also we had a connecting room that only had a crappy door lock. Kinda dangerous imo. The bathroom has a cool japanese toilet but looked confusing to use. The gym is tiny but free for guests. Not very close to the train stations but close to little tokyo!

    The hotel is located in the 1st street. I missed it the first time and turning back was a pain. I know from Yelp reviews that the hotel provided a valet parking for $19.80. However, when I called the front desk told me I can park in the mall parking building. It was easy to get a spot - maybe because it's near Christmas?
    The hotel itself is old. I thought, "Wow, old and dingy!". Certainly cannot be compared to hotel Kabuki in SF Japantown. Anyways, it met my expectations this way: the bed is spacious and ultra comfortable. The TV program has TV Japan channel. Also the rumor about heated toilet is really true, it's very easy to get used to this stuff! I like the wash on feature - didn't try the bidet though.
    All in all, I was glad to choose this hotel.

    Pretty standard rooms. Our room was clean, but it looks like it needed updating. The bathroom though, did not have any windows or air vents which is crucial.

    No bedbugs!!!

    They charge $20/day for parking. My little sister parked somewhere nearby for $8 only.

    Place is right in the heart of Little Tokyo. Just walk out of the hotel & there are restaurants and shops everywhere.

    Very nice and clean hotel in the heart of Little Tokyo.  

    Since I'm not too familiar with Downtown Los Angeles, I needed a place close to the Natural History Museum of L.A.  This is by far the closest under 6 miles) and within walking distance to restaurants (right around the corner is Japanese Village).   Across the street is the famous Daikokuya Ramen...closed the whole time we were there.  Bummer.

    I got a free upgrade to a nicely decorated room with cotton duvet covered comfy beds and not the polyester coverlet...hate those.  Oh, and my cutie pie and I loved the drinking fountain right out of the toilet!  Cool beans!   It overlooked the 1st Street lined with all the shops and restaurants below.  Free internet!

    As far as food, Cafe 5 opened at 6:30am with hardly anything for breakfast.  Old muffins, moldy bagels and so-so coffee.  Even the breakfast special only consisted of coffee, croissant, yogurt and a banana.  Carb overload will definitely put me to sleep if I were to go to an early morning meeting.   We asked to see the offerings at Tamon breakfast buffet at around 7am.  No, thanks.  I'm not too familiar with Japanese breakfast, but the smell of fish and pickled veggies did not appeal to me and that's coming from and island girl who is used to fish and rice in the morning.  The American side, with eggs, bacon, brown gravy (?) and other covered things didn't look appetizing as well.  No American breakfast withing walking distance.  The closest is the 24 hours Farmer Boys up Alameda Street.  All the other Asian coffee shop and bakeries open up at 8am.

    Don't be horrified, we know it's a bidet.  I love the seat and water warmer...I want one.

    I booked the hotel directly for $179 a night,  plus room tax, tourism assesment tax, etc...etc.   Valet parking is $18 (+tax $1.80, seriously) a day, much better than self parking at the Little Tokyo garage which is a little ways to walk($8 flat rate).   Good place if you're only staying for 2 or 3 nights, with the lack of hotel amenities, not a bad price.  

    The downside is we can only do so much made in China shopping for cheapstuffs,  eat until our heart's content or bar hopping (my son didn't pass for a legal midget [no offense, just a joke]).  NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY atmosphere.  We'll stick to our 'ol hotel-by-the-beach in the future.

    This is a good place if you're a business traveler or if you want to bar hop with your friends with awesome restaurant choices on a whim!

    DIRRRRRTTY! We booked this hotel on hotels.com and the room looked NOTHING like the pictures. It smelled like stale cigarettes and everything was in poor condition. We were only there long enough to book a room at another hotel and leave. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Worse than the hotel was the urine-soaked, pigeon stool-covered parking garage next door. We live in Chicago which is not always the cleanest city, but this made our stomachs turn. Pay an extra few bucks and stay at The Standard.

    DUDE!  Who knew hotels in LA would be so expensive???  So glad I found Miyako!

    4 stars for the following:
    reasonably priced with your AAA membership
    great location in Little Tokyo accessible to shopping and food
    free continental breakfast every day of your stay
    cool toilet bidet
    Aveda bath products - woot!  And they gave me extra without giving me a hard time
    minutes away from Fashion District and Korea Town

    It was so cool to see little Japanese business men hanging around the lobby.  I was probably the same height as all of them!

    They even have a spa salon in the hotel that opens till 10pm every night.  Ok...so I had to try it out and honestly, it is BEAUTIFUL inside. I mean, you would never know how nice it is just by hanging out in the front lobby.  And for Miyako residents you get 20% off your services. But gawd, the service itself....IT WAS PAINFUL! OMG....I wanted to cry - the masseuse was sooo hard on me even when I asked her to lighten up her touch. I was soar for a week!

    Parking was a bit costly - $19 per night. Aside from the painful massage and parking fees,  I'll still come back! =)

    This place is sooo shady.
    First, the hotel or management never once mentioned their broken heater. On a cold, cold January you would think to mention a broken heating system to guests. We found out through the bellman, who moonlights as Miyako's valet, repairman, and janitor (he told us). Second, they charged us an extra $100 for clean-up because our room supposedly took them 3 hours to clean.

    I'm a wedding coordinator. There were thread strands on the carpet from sewing drapery for the event we were doing that weekend.

    When I asked them to provide pictures of this mess, they claim that they are having trouble "uploading" -- I think they're having trouble making a mess look like it's 3 hrs worth of cleanup.

    Miyako = Shady

    TRANSFORMER TOILET!!! GOTTA Try it,  more below...

    This place is a really nice find!  Not world class, but certainly very pleasant and comfortable!

    1.  Parking - The best. There is no where to park, however, they have valet service that is nice, personable and quick.  This is the best choice over self parking. Go ahead and spring for the tip to the valet jockey. It is worth it.

    2.  Check in - Small foyer, but very attentive staff. They have a really large gift shop and a coffee/tea/snack kiosk in the lobby.  Kinda cool and different for a small hotel!

    3.  Breakfast - OK, so it may be a bit expensive, but man, that Japanese breakfast they serve here is just right.  Rice, Miso Soup, Natto Beans, Eggs, sausages, bacon, fruit, Nishime, fish, salad, toast.  This is a very nice blend of Japanese style breakfast and American.

    4.  Room - Nicely arranged. We had two double bed and they were comfortable. Nice blanket, pillows.  Chair/Ottoman area to read, plenty of area to put your stuff.  Decent sized closet with iron, iron board and even an electronic safe.

    5.  Bathroom - Decent size and you get that transformer of a bathroom toilet. Plugged in, warmer, bidet, water fountain, and all.  It is a crazy contraption and different for sure.

    6.  Price - Just right. Our cousins paid as we had several rooms and yet the normal pricing is under 125 per night so this is really a great deal and a nice place.

    GK says, go for it.

    It's all about the location! If you want to have easy access to Little Tokyo or just a safe shopping/food district on the day you just feel like walking around your hotel area without needing to stress over LA traffic, this is the hotel to be.

    Hotel lobby is well lit and pretty fancy but the hotel rooms were dark and smelled like mold. Good thing you can open your window even if you're on the top floor. $19 per day valet parking and $1 for water bottles. Wifi's free but super slow!

    What they lacked in my shower working they made up for in having a pimped out toilet. Apparently it's pretty common to have heated seats and other bells and whistles on the throne in these hotels. Alls I can say is the Japanese sure know how to rock a deuce!

    Despite not being able to cleanse myself before having to run to an event the Miyako was definitely well worth the price. The bed was comfy, the staff was friendly, the bottled water in the room was only a buck, and that toilet was definitely a nice touch.

    For the low low of about $150 a night during the LA film fest this was a steal!

    The staff is friendly, I was able to get my room very fast.  Of course the toilets are very Japanese, and the rooms are clean which is great.  The best thing to me was all the Japanese food across the street and within walking distance.  Many of them were open late and are delicious.
    The only downside to me is expensive parking valet.  I personally do not like to valet parking bc I like to always have my keys with me, but at this hotel there is no other choice.

I was impressed by the looks inside but my shoes were slightly sticking to the carpet so I left them on. I doubt I'll be back but I wouldn't be upset. I might just call and see if the carpets could be cleaned :P

    The hotel location is centrally located in the middle of Little Tokyo in Los Angeles.  We got this place locked down in a deal for a "hotel and flight" combination off of Travelocity and it was such a nice surprise.  The hotel staff was really friendly. They held onto our luggage several times before and after checking in.  They also provided for some personal things that we were requesting of them after checking in.  We even asked for them to refill many things on almost every day that we were there and they did it with no questions asked.  The location is near all the little shops in the area and also very well lit so you feel you are safe and able to find your way around the area and back to safety.  The interior is really nice and clean.  The bedding was a good quality and the restroom had a good sized bathtub.  There is a small gift shop downstairs and wifi is provided free of charge to all hotel guests.

    Stayed one night for $129 plus tax; valet parking was an additional $20.

    The area was nice and safe with lots of Japanese dining and entertainment options nearby. It was an easy 15 minute bus ride to Staples Center, and an $11 cab ride back. Easy to access hotel from 101 freeway.

    The beds were very comfortable, and toilet with heated seat and warm water bidet was a revelation. Our room was clean and quiet, and the staff I dealt with seemed eager to assist me.

    Good bargain hotel, and i will definitely stay here again if visiting downtown LA.

    I've stayed at the Miyako twice over the past couple of years - and I've never been disappointed. One of the most reasonably priced hotels in LA for what you get - I usually book either a package deal or use my AAA discount.  You can't beat the location - smack in the middle of Little Tokyo less than a mile from Union Station and the Civic Center Metro Station - ideal for getting around using public transportation. For the art lover in all of us, the Geffen Contemporary is down a block and across the street with MOCA on Grand within walking distance too if you're hale and hearty.

    The rooms are clean and the king sized beds more cozy than my bed at home!  The staff are consistently terrific - particularly the front desk and the friendly bellmen. The only reason I'm docking them a star is because the furnishings in the room, although fairly new and contemporary, don't seem to be holding up to the abuse the patrons are giving it.  A little chipped and worn here and there.

    I'm checking out this morning after a two night stay.  The hotel is a good bargain for downtown Los Angeles.  I like the location in Little Tokyo because I have easy access to the major freeways, it's a short trip to Dodger Stadium and I can avoid the freeway during rush hour to get there, and the Music Center is only blocks away.

    The only criticism I have is that the main garage parking is all valet.  For self park, you have to use the Little Tokyo Mall garage.  It's fine, but it's a little out of the way. Since I hike miles a week, I guess that really shouldn't be an issue.

    The rooms are clean, and many have been renovated.  The beds are quite nice.  I have a gripe with most hotels today.  I hate the huge, fat pillow they spread across the back of the bed.  Give me a flatter pillow and I'm a happy guy!

    I'll be back for a future stay.  The staff at the desk downstairs are wonderfully polite Japanese women who know customer service.

    This is a good place to book for your Los Angeles vacations!

    Affordable, Clean, and Centrally Located!

    My friends and I normally stay at The Hilton in San Gabriel when visiting LA. However, its far from the nightlife in Hollywood and shopping malls.

    After a thoroughly researching on Yelp, I came upon Miyako Hotel. It's located in Little Tokyo/Downtown LA which is in a safe area and a short distance to the nightlife in Hollywood/Sunset Blvd.

    We booked the "Park and Stay Package" which was $129/night for a Tokyo Executive Double and included valet parking which is normally $18/day.

    P R O S
    *Friendly staff
    *Clean rooms and bathrooms. It wasn't the Palazzo or Encore but it did the job.
    *Conveniently located in Little Tokyo near many restaurants and small shops. The popular Daikokuya (ramen) is across the street.
    *Flat screen TV and DvD player. Free HBO which we found out from watching a special on "The Bunny Ranch" in Vegas. *ahemcoughahem*
    *Coffee maker and mini fridge in all rooms
    *Bidet toilet. Yeup, I had fun with that one!
    *Aveda hair and body care products
    *Free WiFi

    C O N S
    *Double beds were small and a bit bigger than a twin
    *Low shower heads. I'm short and my head was nearly 2 inches away from the shower head.
    *No vents in the bathroom created a very steamy situation at times.

    There's an Asian Fusion restaurant/lounge, café, gift shop, and business center ($4 for 15 mins to use the computer) in the main lobby. A newly open spa offers massages for ~$100/hour.

    Highly recommended!

    Overall, great hotel for the price and location!  Our room could have been cleaner, but I am a clean freak so I think they would pass most standards.  The toilets are great with built in bidet.  Unfortunately the AC in our room didn't work and I was too tired to change rooms.

    All of the staff were very accommodating and friendly.  If the AC had worked, I would give them 4 stars.

    I chose this hotel because of
    a) yelp reviews
    b) its close vicinity to LA convention center
    c) Little Tokyo!

    Here are the positives:
    -you have to see the freaking transformers bathroom, it has all these buttons where you can autobot it to a bidet or warm up your seat.  And guess what, I got a hot seat!
    -the place has a safe for your valuables...like the millions of yen that you can hide, I suppose
    -free internet
    -awesome location in Little Tokyo
    -pretty darned comfortable bedding
    -clean
    -very polite and helpful staff
    -The hand shower...it could be a good or bad thing.  Good if you need to hose yourself down.

    Some downsides:
    -the LA thing with paying for parking sucks.  I had to go a couple of circles around the block so I wouldn't miss the parking entrance to this place.  Just when I realized that it was only valet, it was a let down.  $20/a day or park it yourself and walk around the block to check in.  To lessen your headache, pay the $20.
    -hand shower is either a good or bad thing. In my case, when placed at shower level it comes up to my forehead, and I'm rather tall for an asian woman at 5'6 ft.  Needless to say I felt like I was hosing myself down, cause there was no way I was taking a shower on my knees just to get under the water.

    My Ratings:
    Quality: 2 - Clean but outdated
    Price: 2 - Pricey
    Location: 3 - Great spot if you want to be in JapanTown
    Parking: 2 - $20 a night and a bit tricky to get to
    Service: 2 -  Okay but not very accommodating

    Overall:  I don't think this place is worth over $100/nt. Place is okay if you just want to hang out at the downtown area but this is a 2-star hotel.

    My Opinion/Story:
    We wanted to spend a day at Japantown and Miyako is the closest hotel. Reviews on this hotel were all so good so we book thru Priceline and got a good deal. I'm glad we didn't pay over $100/nt because the place was outdated. Parking was hard to get to and to pay $20/nt is a little too much. Front desk people were snobby and rude. We asked if the hotel was full and she said they have plenty of rooms. So we asked if we can get an upgrade and she said because we're paying less thru Priceline, we can't get upgraded. We asked if we can at-least get a King bed and said she can only give us a room with two full beds. How crappy!!!  Anyway, since we're only staying for one night we decided to just let it go and enjoy the rest of our day in japantown. I'm just glad it's only for a night.

    Located on 1st street in the center of Little Tokyo or also called J-Town.....the Miyako Hotel has been here for years.  Small boutique'ish jappy hotel with modern interiors.

    A little old but clean and well maintained.  Friendly staff of japanese front desk and valet and bellmen who are hispanic.  All very friendly and attentive.

    Small restaurant, karaoke/pub, and spa located in the hotel. All small but not bad.  Even a small laundry center to do your own laundry.

    Rooms are a little old and not too spacious but not bad for the price.  All the necessities of cable TV, wireless, refrig, etc.  Not much of a view because of the height of the hotel building and its orientation in the center of the block.  Beds are decent and comfy with 3 star type thread counts and comforters.

    The great thing about the hotel is it is safe and the location you cannot beat.  Center stage of Little tokyo so you can walk to all the restaurants, pubs, shops, etc. from the hotel easily.  

    Small little tour desk in the lobby for tourists.  Small convenience store with the basics plus some funky souvenirs.  Also a small cafe in the front lobby with decent pastries, croissants and coffee/tea.  Valet parking.  

    Worth the money for its cleanliness, safety and location.  Just don't go there with 4-star expectations.  Expect more on the line of a 3-star hotel but well kept with a good location.

    I was in the area for an event at the LA historic park - this was the perfect place to stay! It's literally a two minute walk from the super-convenient metro.

    I booked online and got a complimentary upgrade to an executive room. The room was immaculately clean and comfortable, plus it had a pretty nice view. The front desk staff was super nice and accommodating - they had a room ready for us even though we arrived a couple hours before check-in. I would definitely stay here again if I'm ever in the area.

    Standard little cute hotel in the mist of all the good foods and cool spots. I chose to stay here for that same reason. It's in the middle of everything, the boba, the ramen, the tacos, the bars, even the goldline train station (you can go to pasadena or chinatown with this train)

    The services are friendly and the lady kept our room CLEAN, even organized all my make up. The price is reasonable, and very cheap with your AAA membership. The room we got is stylish and cute. The toilet has bidet.

    One star down because: the valet guy got a fender bender on our rental bumper. I noticed it as soon as we came out from the hotel and pull up on 2nd street for boba. We went back to file a claim. But the valet guys refused that it's their fault. We filed a follow up claim to check the security camera and it's yet to be resolved.

    I'm not sure if i would stay here again for that reason.

    I was going to a Laker Game on Christmas Day and was looking for a hotel at a reasonable price. My budget was $200 and under per night. Everything around LA Live was about $275 and up, so I went to Yelp and looked up best rated hotels in DTLA. Hotel Miyako was right up there with those around LA LIve. The rate for Christmas Eve night and Christmas night was right around $300 total. So I booked it. I never stayed in Little Tokyo, but I ended up falling in love with the area. The room was clean, It wasn't super fancy but it did the job. There's a full featured toilet thats totally a conversation piece. You can walk to the Little Tokyo Mall and Daikokuya is right across the street. Also the bar inside has a great karaoke set up. I will stay at Hotel Miyako every time when in DTLA.

    Miyako Hotel is a convenient spot located in the heart of J-Town. It's a quick 10 minute walk from Union Station and has great restaurants and delish eats nearby. I highly recommend Daikokuya Ramen and if you like mochi, Fugetsu-Do which are both right across the street.

    The hotel itself could use a bit of makeover but the rooms and bathrooms are clean and well taken care of. Rates are quite reasonable as well. And if you're so inclined, bathrooms are equipped with bidets :)

    My first two stays here were great. However, they always have a problem finding my reservation when it's booked thru Expedia. They have valet parking for 19$, w in and out privileges. The staff are friendly and efficient. But the last time I checked in according to the person in front we got an "upgrade" to an executive room. Much to our surprise, the room was half of the size of the standard room we usually get. It was on the 9th floor, at the corner of the building room 901. It was crampy. Not only that, there was a part of the room for the AC that the wall was popping out and you can actually see the AC behind. I understand that they had a lot of people staying that day and it even took them about 20mins looking for my reservation but this was in all kinda wrong to deceive and give me a crappy room saying it was an "upgrade". Lucky we were just staying for a night. I don't appreciate being deceived like that.

    I stayed there for 3 days, and I have to tell you this was absolutely my worse hotel experience ever.  First, I got there in the middle of a torrential  rain, and was soaking wet when I got there.  they have no shuttle from the Union Station, nor do they offer one, so I had to walk all the way there.

    When I checked in, as dripping as I was, no one offered me any towels, nor any way to dry my clothes (they have washers & dryers, but no one made mention of this to me).  After going to my room, I noticed that the rooms have a DVD player in them (no one mentioned this either), with instructions on how to obtain a rental.  I went to the Front Desk and asked about a rental, and they sent me across the street to Paradise Video to rent a DVD.  After going across the street (still torrential rain coming down), they store tells me they ONLY carry Japanese DVD's.  No English at all.  Of course when I got back to the hotel the Front Desk looked surprised, and I found out later it was because they understood very little English.

    They had no complimentary newspaper (though they had Japanese newspapers at the Front Desk, all others were outside in the machine).  They have NOTHING complimentary, and they even tried to close the washer/dryer room at their normal time (10:00 p.m.), even though it was still pouring outside (couldn't dry my clothes).  The Fitness Center charges $20 to use the facilities, and there was nothing the hotel wanted or offered to do for me, even though I stated my grievances with them as well.

    There were no English food places in the area except for Subway & Togos sandwich Shops.  the problem with that was no one in the hotel knew this, and I didn't find out until I had walked all around in the rain (for 20 mins) until I found them.  this hotel is very English "Unfriendly"!!!  If you aren't Japanese, you have nothing coming.  Nothing wrong with the culture, but their site should state this information, and the Staff should at least know what's going on around there.  This hotel is listed as a 3 Star Hotel, but it is barely a 2 Star.  I had the worse time of my life there.

    *Very good price for Los Angeles

    I love how everything is so close to this hotel.  Everything important is within distance of this place; Japantown, downtown, the metro station, and Wurstkuche.  You're better off valeting here.  There is a parking lot for $7 but I'm not sure if it's 24 hours or what plus it looks a little shady.

    The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable.  Worth the $180 a night.

    The downfall of the hotel is that it's not the place to get ready for a big night.  The only mirror you got is the sink mirror and as a girl, that's not ok.  

    You have to check out of your room manually.  That was kind of a bummer.  I charged the valet fee ($18.50) to my card since I didn't have cash and would rather get it over with, apparently there's a valet fee if you do that ($2.00).  Yeah they nickel and dimed me here.  I also wasn't aware that if you don't pick up your car from valet at 2:00 pm on the day of check out it's $6 or something.  Really?  

    Overall: I was comfortable, safe, convenient, and it was probably cheaper than any other hotel that fits my standard in LA.  At least I know what to expect.

    Location, cleanliness, exceptional customer service, and bidets! ...Miyako tops my list for SoCal hotels!  

    Every visit gets better!  At first, they initially gave me the wrong room...not the Tokyo Executive.  Then after a few moves, they got it right!  
    On my next visit, I took advantage of their on-line upgrade deal, from standard to Executive...which is truly the best way to stay here.
    They continue to amaze me with chic improvements, like in their new lobby.  And I'm anxious to see the new gym when complete.

    Parking at the nearby open lot (corner of 1st and Central) sure beats parking in their own garage.  
    Their bonus features include Little Tokyo Mall and Daikokuya just steps away!  I'm giving them another star just for that!

    First time writing review. When first arrived, the room looks a big sketchy and the bed spring are broken in one of the bed. Went to the desk and request a new room but the Japanese looking lady had a an attitude saying there were no more room left.

    We were very disappointed and left for dinner. When we came back a Mexican looking man who seems like a manager apologized to us and upgraded our room.

    Overall I'm satisfied, you can't get any better for a price in downtown.

    also, the location is awesome. Stores everywhere and there's a Japanese village right beside it.

    Definitely worth it

    Stayed stayed here during anime convention, forgot my hair straightener in bath room called 2 hours later and the desk said they would ask the maid. Called back again and was told the maid saw no sign of it, I asked if they could ask the new guest, they then said the new guests did not find any straightener as well. This was a brand new $200 babyliss straightener. It didn't just disappear into thin air. It was taken, maybe by the maid the only person after us in the room. I don't know, but what I do know is that the management did not care to call me back either times. I had to call back twice and they just acted like oh well. So unprofessional, I mean who else could've taken it. The rooms are also very small with not so comfortable beds.

    I spent a lot of time looking for a decently priced room in DTLA for a Thursday night. Everything was over $200 a night! Finally, when I was about to give up hope, I came across Miyako Hotel. $140 for a room with a King sized bed. $18 valet parking. Very close to everything we wanted to do. Sold.

    They do have an option for self parking, but we just paid for the valet. They were quick and friendly, we always had our car in less than five minutes. Cute, modern lobby. Nice Japanese women working the front desk.

    The room was decorated nicely, very much our style. The A/C worked well. The toilet had heated seats and a bidet. The bed was HEAVEN! We did not want to get up the next day, it was so comfortable. The pillows were wonderful, the mattress was perfect, the duvet was the perfect weight, not too light, not too heavy. Loved, loved, loved sleeping here!

    The hotel is located right in the heart of Little Tokyo, within walking distance of the train (if you needed to take it), with loads of restaurants also in walking distance, although we opted against sushi on this trip.

    I would definitely stay here again if I needed a hotel in DTLA.

    Miyako is an excellent choice when visiting Los Angeles. It's conveniently located on E 1st street and it's about a 5 minute drive from the 101 and the 5 freeway. It's located in the historic neighborhood of Little Tokyo. The hotel is surrounded by many trendy izakaya bars, karaoke bars and tons of small Japanese restaurants.The Japanese village mall is less than a minute walk from the hotel. I chose this hotel for three reasons 1. Was the price 2nd. Was it's location in DTLA and its proximity to the Sunset strip and 3rd was I love Little Tokyo. To me personally this hotel was a steal at just $150.00 a night. After years of renting in Manhatten $150.00 a night at a quality hotel and in the  city is unheard of so I had to take advantage. The only other additional payment is valet which at just $20.00 I recommend as finding parking nearby is a pain in the ass. The inside of the hotel is nice and modern. The rooms aren't huge but they aren't tiny. The rooms are decorated with a small touch of Japanese decor. They have a paper lantern for dim lighting and they have a shoji, which gives it that traditional Japanese feel. As far as the view there's a huge parking lot that's right in back of the hotel but along with it on the other side is a very sweet view of Downtown Los Angeles. The bed was super comfortable. Inside there is also a mini fridge and they have LCD TV's. In the bathroom what seems to look like a little robot is actually the toilet. Yes it's a multifunctional toilet with a control pad on the side. It can be quite entertaining if you push the right buttons.... As far as I know tipping is offensive in Japanese culture, but most of the maids here are Mexican or Central American and tips don't offend them, so please be sure to tip your maid a few bucks. Overall I enjoyed my stay at Miyako Hotel, it has become my go to hotel when visiting LA.

    Perfect location to stay the night with my daughters as we attended Hello Kitty Con on Sunday at the MOCA. We booked on Orbitz for $209 all in and opted for self park at the Little Tokyo garage next door--$10 for a day and a half!

    Staff is friendly and helpful. The room itself was fine--a little worn, but clean. Bottled water for $1, mini fridge in the room, and green tea bags.

    Great value for the price and super convenient for our needs.

    The Miyako Hotel is a great place to stay if you plan on staying around the Little Tokyo area of Los Angeles. The hotel itself isn't glamorous or anything, but it is nice considering the fact that the next nearest hotel is in downtown LA. The nice thing about this hotel is that it's very clean and they have a nice little cafe and restaurant within the hotel. Surrounding the hotel is filled with Japanese restaurants, bakeries, bars and some shops. The Japanese American Museum is also located across the street from the hotel along with a monument containing the names of the Japanese Americans that have served within the U.S. military.

    The staff here is also very friendly. I've helped family members check-in to the hotel and I've also had a few family banquets here. The food is pretty good depending on what you order for the banquet.

    Anyway this hotel is pretty good for the price. Check it out if you are in need of a weekend getaway or if you are visiting the LA area.

    Came here to a business banquet. If you want Authentic Japanese food that's taste delicious and plated properly, this is your place. My coworker is vegan and they accommodated him as well, and they still kept up the high quality. Our party was served a 2 part bento, 1st was tempura style and 2nd was sashimi. Fresh, fresh and fresh just as you would expect from the Miyako Hotel. If I had a banquet event for this style of dining I can highly recommend it.

    Spent one night here after a Kings hockey. Clean, friendly, and efficient hotel. We actually left our passport at the hotel and Dorina in housekeeping was kind enough to  mail it to us so we didn't have to drive all the way from South Orange County to pick it up. Thank you Dorina!

    This place is simply the Best. My Executive Room was very clean and well kept.The staff were helpful, pleasant and friendly all around, they actually double checked to make sure that we got what we needed at all times. They were always ready to give a good advice about what places to visit, where to go eat. I would highly recommend this hotel and would return in a few months if possible! Fantastic service from Emily at the front desk, Nice and clean rooms, and my favorite Ramen spot is right down stairs! Only a fifteen minute walk to Union Station. Great eats all around you.

    If you're planning on an LA trip on a budget, this hotel is a great place to stay.  It is very cheap but the hotel is very clean and the staff was great.  Your room comes with an electric toilet seat equipped with a seat warmer!  

    The great thing about this place is that it is walking distance to the Little Tokyo Metro Station which can take you anywhere if you're public transit savvy.  

    This hotel is also across the street from Daikokuya.  Ramen cravings all day erryday!

    What a charming, cute, nice little gem of a hotel in Little Tokyo! I found this place here on Yelp while looking for reasonably priced hotels in downtown LA and I'm so glad I did. I booked online and they upgraded me to an executive suite. I think it's a limited time summer special. For the price of a crappy motel room, I got a really nice room. The room was just right for little ol' me- clean, really comfy king size bed, and complimentary Aveda toiletries. The tv was a quality 40 or so inch flat screen and had Directtv! Awesome! I can't stress how clean and fresh everything was! Another plus, they are eco-conscious so if you don't want to unnecessarily launder your sheets and towels daily, (which is how often they automatically do it) you get the option of opting out.

    There are tons of Japanese restaurants across the street and nearby as well as a little shopping plaza with more eateries, a Japanese supermarket (Nijiya), and cute little gift shops.

    However, the best feature of the room was the really cool fancy Japanese toilet! It's one of those ones that washes your bum for you... It's life changing. Temperature control for the water that squirts up and cleans your special areas, as well as the seat- awesome for getting up in the middle of the night.

    Kudos and arigato Miyako! Thank you for your kind and helpful staff. My stay was so pleasant... I will definitely be coming back to stay here again.

    I was in Los Angeles to speak at a conference at the Miyako was the host hotel. It was close to the conference venue and reasonably priced, so I figured why not? I was pleasantly surprised.

    When I arrived, I was impressed by the design of the lobby. Very light, clean and modern. I had a small mix up at check in that almost prevented me from staying at the hotel (despite having a reservation and pre-paid room), but the front desk clerk went to their manager who took care of everything.

    The room is nicely decorated...nothing fancy, but it was clean and well kept. Some parts of the room showed age (thermostat, light fixtures, baseboards) but everything was ok. The bathroom was a decent size and all the bathrooms have heated toilet seats & bidets, which kind of surprised me given the price point, but it was nice. Unfortunately, the bathroom light burned out in the middle of the night (found that out the hard way when my boyfriend was taking a late night potty break). Bathroom was decent, but as I mentioned about the room, showed some age.

    The best part about this place though is the karaoke bar on the second floor. Its called Ohjan and it is a real Japanese karaoke bar. We had so much fun! Locals and hotel guests were there and everyone encouraged each other to sing.

    Honestly, I probably would never of stayed here had it not been for my conference. Not sure how soon I'll return but its nice to know of a reasonably priced, decent, comfortable, clean hotel near downtown.

    LA Trip on a budget? This is the place.

    I was attending a wedding at another downtown hotel and this was a great budget-friendly spot for a quick 1 night stay.

    The hotel location is fun during the day with tons of local eateries and yummy boba spots. Night time..not the greatest area so just pop in and out to go elsewhere.

    Service: Exceptional! From the valet attendees to the front desk, the service here is fantastic. They really make you feel like you're on vacation.

    Rooms: Clean, nice beds, sheets, plenty of towels and overall nice room.

    Bathrooms: This is where my review went downhill. The bathrooms need work. The sink area is remodeled but they skimped on painting. Chipped wall paper, moldings, make the bathroom seem run down. They have a nice toto toilet which is pretty cool but that doesn't make up for the shower faucet handle coming off every time you turn on and off the water. We're in a drought and the water just kept running!

    I did let the attendee at the front desk know upon check-out so hopefully that's taken care of quickly.

    Overall lobby: Beautiful! Really nice and inviting. Theres even a mini cafe for a quick bite if you're traveling and on the go.

    Great hotel located in Little Tokyo section of Downtown LA.  Nice staff, clean rooms, excellent location.  Amenities include:  Large screen HDTV, FREE Wi-Fi, Aveda hair products, mini-fridge and only $1 for in-room bottled water!  Also, this sounds crazy, but the toilet is amazing!  Japanese style with seat warmer and heated water sprayer that cleans the undercarriage!

    Get this, self-parking is only $4 per day on weekends (each time you exit you're charged)!  This is UNBELIEVEABLE for Downtown LA.  Other hotels charge $40 and up per day!!  We saved $72 for two days of parking alone!!

    Lounge in hotel has nightly kareoke and there are LOTS of fantastic restaurants in the area.  We went to a local Raman cafe at 2:30 AM and it was packed.. fun!  

    The hotel is very close to many LA attractions (we went to Coliseum for USC football game one night and Dodger Stadium for baseball the next day).

    A hidden gem... I would highly recommend this hotel.  Only reason I gave it Four Stars instead of Five is that we had to ask for toiletry items (for some reason room didn't have shampoo, conditioner or hand lotion when we arrived), and there were no washcloths in the room.  I mentioned it to the front desk staff that evening and she said they'd bring some to the room.  Later that night we had extra BATH towels but still no washcloths.  Oh well... lost in translation.

    UPDATE:

    It has now been 5 days staying at the Miyako Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. I have received a letter at my room from the Front Office Manager. The Front Office Manager was made aware of my Yelp review and actions were taken to correct further endevors. I give a lot of kudos to the Front Office Manager K.Smith. I appreciate that they keep track of reviews and for that my views change on something other than those associates.

    Kudos:

    + The hotel is aware of guests needs and concerns
    + The maids are very friendly and kind.
    + The caucasion female at the front desk was extremely friendly & helpful!
    + The hotel rooms are well maintained by staff.

    *ALERT: (Not Hotel's Fault) The surrounding area is a bad area after a certain hour. There are a good amount of homeless people asking you for money. However, you're pretty safe if your'e directly infront or within the hotel lobby.

    I stayed at this hotel this past weekend while I was in Los Angeles for the Hello Kitty Convention.  While nothing special, the room was super clean, and quiet.  All of the staff was very gracious to us during our stay, with the exception of the bellman.  We asked him to get us a taxi on Saturday night for our dinner reservations and he acted like it was not his job.  Valet parking is on site and very affordable compared to other local hotels.

    I would stay here again if I needed to be in this area of Los Angeles.

    Hotel was nice enough. Booked a 2 bed. Ended up getting a 1 bed room from staff. Asked for a roll Away to make things right. Staff and manager wanted to charge me for their error.

    If they wouldn't give a roll away bed, which costs nothing to them to make things good. Then I'd say pass in this hotel for another with good customer service.

    I booked this hotel as a secret deal on Hotwire. Thought I got a great deal, but what I saved in up front costs I paid for in my experience and comfort.

    I spent the day out and about exploring the city and spending time with family. I came back to the hotel at the end of the day tired and in need of a nice warm shower. A simple enough request. I get into the bathroom and notice the peeling wallpaper. There's only a tiny ventilation duct in the bathroom, so I understand the humidity affecting the glue. The problem was that the wallpaper had been peeling for a while now, as you could see the dirt and grime underneath that had collected over time. I'm too tired to change rooms, so I take a quick shower to get over it. I grab a towel and it tears up in my hands as I try to dry off my back. I further inspect the other towels and there's shreds of fibers coming from the edges and they're an off white color. Completely unacceptable, I was livid.

    I go down to the front desk to complain about the disrepair of the bathroom and the condition of the towels. The clerk behind the counter was sympathetic about what I experienced and was professional. However, because I had prepaid through Hotwire secret deals and valet is handled by a different company, the manager would not offer me any compensation for my experience other than a bottle of water... Are you kidding me?

    This hotel is in great location of Little Tokyo, with lots of activities nearby, but they are their own worst enemy. This hotel is easily 3.5 stars for the creature comforts available, but they lost that for the lack of basic maintenance and inflexibility of management. This stay has left a bad taste in my mouth, it must be the gunk from behind the wallpaper.

    When most hotel workers in LA make at least $12 an hour these folks pay people minimum wage.  No one can survive on minimum-wage. Also, the continental breakfast this comprised of the dry lifeless bread and cheap yogurt. I won't go back.

    This hotel is a nice hotel.  It has a nice lobby. We were only here for a night so I can't tell you how it is for more than one night. The photos on their website for the smoking room isn't accurate...or maybe it is...bit they have white blankets now. Picture is below.  Pardon my crap on the bed...lol

    They have a fridge mine was working...but you do have to turn it on because they try to save energy. We also have coffee.  Some review said they charged to use it...well...They charge for you if you take the cup....and the water...but that's normal. I'm from Vegas after all abd I know about the mini bar stuff why would this be any different?? Anyways I'm sure it's normal hotel coffee stuff.

    The tv is rather small...but we didn't really end up watching it or using it. They had Direct Tv....which is kinda cool. And a Japanese station...but I think that's because we are in little Tokyo...which is literally next door and we use the same parking structure.

    Ok so parking....it's $20 valet or $15 to go park yourself....hmm...if I would have known the parking structures elevator was broken I would have paid valet....the stairs...omg...reaked of pee.  They had puddles and I'm sure that's what it is. I would not want to repeat that ever!! Wish they would have told us that when we pulled up to valet...when we checked in the guy told us it was broken when I asked where can we park :/ totally lost a star because of that....

    Skid row really is close to this area and its rather scary...we took a cab around and omg...tents and tents of people...I mean at least they have tents but as another review said...you might get stragglers....then again this is downtown.  But just stay in little tokyo area you'll be alright.

    Food...there is a cafe downstairs and run service that we saw....we ended up going to mr pizza so I can't comment on the food here...but their little lobby gift shop lady was nice. We bought beer, wine, soda, and this electric hookah thing. It's an electric cigarette but they called it hookah...maybe because it's flavored?? Anyways she was nice and suggested.a wine for me and even offered to open the bottle for me.

    The bathroom...love it! Haha had fun playing with the tiolet. Yes you heard/read me....playing with the tiolet.  It has a bidet!!!! And yes I had to Google it.....:( I'm so not civilized or rather...high class enough to know what this is. I mean upon looking at it I KNEW what it was but other than that had no idea how it worked. It's nice. Other than paying with it though I didn't have a need or want to actually use that function.  The shower was and is like other hotel showers...the shower head is more pressure and didn't dripple water which is good. A nice flow of water.

    Hmm what else...I think I covered.everything? I didn't try the business center (open right bar the cafe) or the fitness center or spa...we were here to short...I works come back given the price of the hotel. This was the cheaper we found on mother's day weekend.  

    Btw great restaurants near by...ramen that is always busy and the little mall...and the museum is nearby...for things to do. :)

    We enjoyed our short stay here.

    The room was up on the 9th floor and we had a great view of DTLA. The room had  Japanese interior touches and it was clean and quiet overall.

    The doorman was informative and the best part is that it's in the center of all the action in Little Tokyo and next to all the good spots in DTLA. If you're a walker, then it's not a problem getting over to those spots by foot.

    The only problem was asking them information about parking. They won't tell you about parking options, only that they have valet parking and you should look up the rates online. Pretty lame. We ended up parking ourselves in the adjacent parking lot and it only ended up being $10 a day. Not bad.

    I'd give this hotel a 3 1/2 star but whatever.
    I checked in pretty late at 7pm, the check in was really quick but he didnt look that happy and friendly but I didnt care about that. I was glad that we got the 9th floor since I heard it was one of the updated rooms. It was roomy and spacious! The view was nice to look at. TV was small but good enough to watch from the bed. BED! It was big! The elevation was high, but one thing was when I slept, I kept on scratching my body and I was wondering why :/ Didnt enjoy my sleep here whatsoever.

    The shower was odd. I took a bath. Then showered but I had to push down something to make the water drain down and that was a huge pain in the ass to have my big toe press down that thing the whole shower. I didnt want to bother with the employees about it.

    The hotel was in great distance when you want to eat somewhere. Omg, I really liked how we just walked down the street to Sushi Enya and Far Bar. And the next morning, we ate at Shin Sen Gumi Ramen then walked around Japanese Plaza Village. Thats a plus for the hotel!

    Parking valet is $22, if you decide to do self parking, thats $14 the valet guy says. But ended up paying $10 :)

    Overall stay at Little Tokyo was good! Besides the itching and scratching on my body during my sleep -__-

    This hotel was exactly what we needed for a night in LA. My friend and I drove up to celebrate another friend's birthday...and made the last minute decision to book a room and stay the night. We were feeling spontaneous (so unlike us, but we're super chill! *winks*). So we did a blind booking on Hotwire.com and were assigned Miyako Hotel, it was only $157 for the same day booking. What a steal! Checked in - the front desk man said he would "upgrade" us to the top floor. I'm sure the 2 queen bed room was exactly like the others, but the top floor is pretty cool. He was super friendly, and called when we got in to check on us.

    It's attached to the Little Tokyo center which is awesome cause we were able to walk around and check out the shops. It was also conveniently close to where we were going later, short 6 min Uber Ride. The room itself has all the basic essentials. TV, Shower, Toilet (w/ bidet & heated options!, lol i didn't use it) all worked just fine. The beds were comfortable, and definitely accommodated three people just fine. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom as well (which i love), a functional iron & board, the lamps are not as bright as I'd like, but it was a one-night-only situation. Thanks Miyako!

    I bought a lifebooker for two massages here, so I came on two separate occasions.  Other yelp reviews had raved about the shiatsu massage, so I came to try it out.  The service at the spa is not that great.  I called in to check if there was an availability around 1 PM and they said I could come in at any time.  So I went there immediately, and when I got there, they told me they weren't going to have a masseuse in until after 3.  I was pretty annoyed about that because I came in specifically for a massage and I was in a time crunch, but at least they have a spa area you can hang out in.  It's a Japanese bath house style place, and it's nice cause they have the steam room and baths and showers and stuff.  

    As a note, it's regular practice that everyone's just naked in japanese bath houses, so once you get used to that/understand what's going on it's no big deal.

    Anyways, after waiting hours for my massage, it was kind of just whatever.  There wasn't enough pressure for shiatsu, and the masseuse was just average.  Then when I was leaving, I tried to get my parking validated from the spa since I called and asked if I could park with valet, and then the lady working the desk told me that "oh, sorry, you can't validate since you had the lifebooker."  So i ended up having to pay over $20 for parking because I had been there so long because the lady told me to come in without telling me how long I would have to wait for a masseuse.

    I never would have come back based on just that first experience, but I had the second lifebooker to use.

    So this time I came back and made sure to park not at the hotel.  I also made sure they would have a masseuse at the time I was coming in.  I really do like the spa room, so I was pretty excited to come back, but this time around the steam room was broken, so that kinda sucked.  I chose a swedish style massage instead of the shiatsu this time around because it wasn't that good, and this one was also just okay.

    three stars out of five because I love japanese style bath houses and they're rare in the US, but I'd make sure you ask them detailed questions for what type of spa day you're trying to have before you come it.

    *close to Little Toyko shops, museum, convention center, and other restaurants
    *amazing Japanese style toilet seat with electronic seat warmer and bidet

    Cons:
    *"fitness center" is smaller than hotel room with 1 broken treadmill and 1 elliptical
    *decor in hotel room is outdated
    *no complimentary breakfast available

    I'll only stay here again if I have to come back to the convention center.

    I enjoyed our stay here. We didn't pick it, as it was the official hotel for our friends' wedding weekend, but I'm glad that this was their choice.

    A few highlights for me...

    -- Great location, steps from bars, restaurants, shops, nail salons, a brewery and the wedding location. (Japanese Cultural Center and Gardens)

    -- Valet. Upon initial investigation, their valet was only a few dollars more than self-parking in a garage nearby. The valet staff were always quick and it ended up being completely worth the extra dough, regardless of the difference. We were also able to leave our belongings while we grabbed brunch the morning we left, and that process was easy.

    -- Nice room, comfy bed, etc. As others have mentioned, the common areas are modern and clean.

    -- Nice little shop in the lobby, open late and with reasonably priced water bottles and snacks.

    -- Bar/restaurant with karaoke. We didn't actually utilize this option, but I love that we could have.

    Our initial check-in took a while, probably because they were managing a lot of people at one time, as well as guests attending at least 2-3 weddings that weekend. Everything else was smooth from there on out.

    Most of the experience was just fine. Staff, room, and location were good. The DirectTV had many stations, although missing a few I wanted. The biggest hit for me was the Internet service. It's not just slow, it is glacial. I guess I should be happy they don't charge for it, but they really need to do better. I measured the speed a few times and while always poor the worst was .14 Mb/s which is easily 100 times slower than I get at home. Really? It's so painful to use it's like they are trying to drive you away.

    The Miyako Hotel was the official hotel for my friends' wedding.  The hotel is this gorgeous hotel in Little Tokyo, near San Pedro and 1st St.  The staff there speaks Japanese and are really nice.  Valet parking is $19.80 per 24 hours.  You can self park which I was told was in the Little Tokyo Mall structure that is $4 per day.  I'm not sure if that's correct but that was what I was told.  The hotel is walking distance from Little Tokyo and DTLA.  They have maps in the lobby should you desire to walk around.  I arrived in the morning to get ready for my friend's wedding.  I asked the front desk if they could check if my room was available.  

    They said they could have a room ready by 11 am for me even though check-in is normally at 4 pm.  Score! The beds are nice and soft.  The rooms were clean.  I was put in a corner room which was fine by me.  I was far away from the elevator noise but could hear people in the stairwell.  The room comes equipped with DirectTV, electric bidet, and other hotel amenities.  The room was really nice and we had a special wedding rate for the weekend.

    Mom and I stayed here for two nights last week to attend the first annual Hello Kitty Con in Little Tokyo.  Miyako was the nearest hotel to the venue (The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA), so it was an easy decision to book our hotel accommodations here out of convenience.

    We drove up from San Diego and was so relieved that we didn't hit any traffic on our trek up to Little Tokyo.  Since we arrived around 1:45, I wasn't sure if our room was going to be available since check-in time wasn't supposed to be until 3pm, but thank goodness it was!

    The common areas of the hotel was modern, clean and nice.  The staff from the front desk, the valet, the gals at the lobby cafe and housekeeping were all super friendly, so that made for a pleasant visit stay here.

    The room itself was okay, I liked that the room had a strong WiFi signal (our room was on the tenth floor at the very end of the long hallway), so it made connecting on our iPads very easy without any issues.  Direct TV is also in the room, so that made it easy to access tons of channels at our fingertips.  We had two queen beds in our room and I really loved the comfort of the bed; it reminded me of the signature "Heavenly Beds" offered at Westin Hotels.

    Our reservation also came with a complimentary continental breakfast for Mom & I for the two days we were there.  They gave us four vouchers upon our check-in and we were each able to get:  two warm mini croissants, a small cup of Activia brand yogurt, a glass of apple or orange juice and coffee or tea.  It wasn't phenomenal, but it served its purpose in feeding us before we walked over to Hello Kitty Con, so it's all good.  I didn't feel like hemming and hawing on where to eat that early in the morning, so I was fine with eating this for brekky!

    If anything, the room could use better lighting and the bathrooms could use a facelift, but that was just my observation.  The wallpaper was starting to peel and the built-in bidet toilet seat wasn't working properly.  Oh well, it was clean and that's all that really mattered.  I'm glad that the room also had a mini-fridge and sold bottled water for $1 per bottle, it helped keep the fruits and drinks we packed from home cool.

    We also enjoyed a nice 60-minute shiatsu massage in their really nice spa on the third floor.  The spa itself is five stars, I'd recommend you check it out and schedule a massage during your stay.  I think they have a special through the end of the year that was a lot less than you'd expect to pay at a hotel spa, so enjoy some pampering while you're at Miyako.  Mom and I did just that as we were able to schedule a 9pm massage after walking around all day at Hello Kitty Con.  It was the perfect way to end our exhausting day and to prep for the following day at this grand event that we were so excited to attend.

    Overall, our stay was pleasant.  Valet was super helpful when we told them we were checking out that morning, but wanted to load up my car with our stuff before we went back to Hello Kitty Con one last time before driving back home.  It wasn't an issue, so that made everything easy for Mom & I since we didn't have to re-park my car (and packed with all our belongings) elsewhere after checking out. We called for the bellhop upon check-in and check-out since Mom doesn't know how to pack light, lol.  I appreciated that they spoke Tagalog to us, it felt like we were talking to a distant relative, lol!

    If I decide to make a weekend trip up to L.A. I'd consider staying at Miyako again with my hubby.  Everyone was so nice, it was freeway close and I loved walking over to Little Tokyo Mall (the outdoor shopping area on the same block) with a ton of great eats nearby.

    Great service, everyone is nice.  Cool filipino guy that checks you in and is very informative.  Seems like he is always there for your needs day and night.  The hotel room is great except that our bathroom tub in 716 didn't drain well and has slight mold that is visible.  Good view and clean.  They have direct tv so you can watch.  Only downfall is that the room has no microwave..  A/C Heater unit is kind of loud but its liveable.  They have valet parking with unlimited in and out at $22.00 but we decided to park in Little Tokyo Mall which is $10 a day but no in and outs.  Try to set it up to where you leave minimal amounts of time.  If you go on their website they have a good deal for executive room with free continental breakfast that comes with either Croissant or Toasted break with jam or butter, coffee or tea, yogurt, and your choice of juice which was good enough for us to last to lunch.  Good location which is not to busy and isn't to far from Hollywood or a short drive to other places around the area.

    The hotel room was great, everyone is nice, good continental breakfast, great price, and good location.  Will definitely come back again.

    NOTE TO STAFF:  PLEASE FIX DRAINING IN 716 BATH TUB

    this was a fantastic hotel.  came here to relax and get away from my nagging stressful parents. the rooms werent too fancy but offered some nice abeyance.

    room came with direct tv, free wi fi (though it was fairly slow) a nice large bathtub with which to take nice relaxing baths with. and they had a super toilet. yeah, not very big on those, just used it like a normal toilet. I dont need something fancy like that.

    anyway the rooms bed was super fluffy and comfortable. not only that but the hotel was literally right next to the lil tokyo village plaza where you can get food and go shopping.

    the staff were all so very nice and pleasant to be around!

    If I had to stay at a hotel, Id chose the Miyako!
