I was going to a concert at Disney Hall so the location of the Miyako Hotel was very convenient. Nearby to the hall are MOCA and Dorothy Chandler as well. Rooms are nice and staff was excellent. It's right in Japantown so there are a lot of restaurants to choose from and Chinatownand Olvera Street are within walking distance as... More

reception staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms were large and very clean and were serviced daily. It was about a 15 minute walk to a couple of train stations and/or buses. We had no trouble negotiating the public transport and felt safe doing so. Would definitely recommend this hotel for the price.

The Miyako is an ok hotel for downtown LA.. Wouldn't be my first choice... A little outdated for my liking but it is clean and friendly. The bar on level 2/next level from reception does some alright cocktails, but nothing mind blowing (in my opinion). Just another hotel for contiki travellers to start at...

very comfortable and the staff were absolutely fantastic. Close to the subway and a Starbucks, easy to get around and the food places across the road were amazing. The toilet was confusing with all the buttons, so I just stuck with the normal 'flush' and avoided the bonus extras

Lovely little hotel with all the basics you need. The area isn't so great however, which I was warned by many cab drivers every time they dropped me off. Little noise, comfy beds, decent rates - location is the downfall

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

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.
