The Kawada is located at the top of Hill Street at the corner of Hill and 2d. It is a block from the superior court and the county administration buildings, which makes it an ideal location if you have busness at either place. Two blocks the other way is the Ronald Reagan State Building, Two blocks up 2d is the Disney Concert Hall. It's a bit of a climb from the Kawada but worth a look. The rooms are reasonably priced and comfortable. The building was built in the early '20's and received a complete makeover in 1990. The old girl is starting to look like she could use a sprucing up, but the rooms are clean and the beds soft. When I started staying there in 1996, the hotel was nor near anything but fast food restaurants. Now there is a good pizza place and a good chinese retaurant both at 2d and Main, about three blocks away. A block down Hill Street is the Grand Central eating plaza which has several good stands with a convenience store on the Broadway side.
There is valet parking. I gave the place only four stars because it is beginning to need a facelift, but it is a really good place to stay. The staff is really nice and helpful. All of the rooms have refidgerators. Many of the rooms have microwaves, and some have kitchenettes. There are fancier places to stay not too far away, but the Kawada is the best value. Since it is right at the corner of 2d & Hill, there is some traffic noise. If you are a litght sleeper, make sure you get an interior room. If you are a heavy sleeper like me, it doesn't matter. Rooms near the fire escapes have two windows, in case that matters.
