The location is great, but there were issues that were hard to overcome. First of all, I should say that the staff was wonderful. They all did a really great job. It's just that they're working with an older building that could stand some rehab. First, in my room, the toilet was backed up when I checked in. Someone came... More

I wanted to stay close to Union Station since I was arriving by Amtrak late at night and leaving mid afternoon via LAX (there's a Flyaway bus from Union Station direct to LAX) and Miyako was a great location. I also wanted to tour downtown LA on foot and it was ideal as a base for that. It's also on... More

very nice bathroom!! Quiet. Excellent service. Nice breakfast room with view. Great view from floor ten.Fancy toilet! Never seen anything like that before! We had to change room because we got one bed, and we needed two. They fixed it in no time.

We loved being in Little Tokyo. Great Japanese food in the area (both sushi and ramen) as well as some nice cafes (demitasse is great for coffee). The hotel itself was perfectly nice and fine, but had nothing particularly special about it. On the whole would recommend. Looked like one of the nicer places in Little Tokyo area.

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel as part of a cruise package and am commenting in that scenario. The hotel itself is very clean and clutter-free. Spent a Saturday and Sunday night here. The problem is it is in downtown Los Angeles and at weekends, downtown is dead. The area is very Japanese, as is the hotel, and not many... More

The Miyako Hotel in Little Tokyo has been a favorite of ours for years, at first because of its location near Union Station and light rail, lately because it feels like home, a little rustic and worn around the edges, but well maintained and very clean. This time we stayed in a redecorated room with new blond furniture, new carpeting,... More

In the heart of Little Tokyo, in a safe neighborhood. What this means is you are surrounded by excellent Japanese and Korean eateries. Right next to a Japanese mall with markets, restaurants, stores, Karaoke bars, and the Japanese Museum. Metro stop a block away. A stone's throw from Chinatown. Close to courthouses. The spa offers the best Shiatsu massage you... More

Great location, near so many interesting places. On a road trip from Oregon to LA, we were exhausted by traffic and the unfamiliar streets. We had reservations. I was happy to be here and chill. Lovely bed and bathroom. HVAC just right. Nice overall decor. We ate dinner and breakfast here too! Handy.

So the first rule of thumb for when I choose a hotel would be location, location, location and Miyako met that requirement to a tee! It was located in the middle of J Town with wonderful restaurants and asian shopping close by but the best part was the promixity to the Hello Kitty Con I was attending. I had booked... More

We stayed in the double double room on the 10th floor facing the back with a view of a parking garage and the Little Tokyo Mall. The hotel was fully booked during our 4 day stay and we would have not known by the lack of noise and the quick speed of the elevator. The room was clean and the... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
