I WANTED TO TAKE THE MATTRESS HOME WITH ME!

The air conditioner really worked. The bed was sooo comfortable and I slept "like a log". I was right in downtown LA and, though the blocks are long, I was able to walk to public transportation. The staff helped me to park at a different garage near the hotel to save me $10.00 a day. The TV had CNN as well as local LA stations and other cable channels. I had breakfast every morning at the Japanese mall just steps from the hotel. Prices in LA are outrageous--$4.00 for a cup of coffee in many places!!--but the deal I was able to snag was great. The room regularly cost around $190.00 a night--I tried to get a second room while I was there for a friend and couldn't get it because they were sold out. I'd definitely use Cheap Tickets again and if I was in LA I'd stay here.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Use the Metro. It beats traffic, it's fast but it costs $1.50 each ride. You need a "TAP CARD" to use it and that will cost a one time fee of $1.00. It's available in the Metro at one of the machines at each station. A week's pass--unlimited rides--is only $20.00. Just add money to the "TAP CARD" at the other station machines if you need to, so don't throw the card away.

Clean room in a perfect location

This hotel is located perfectly in little Tokyo and you can get to the most attractions by metro. To down town you just need to go by foot. Ideal for family.

Accidental Tourist

Stranded by train scheduling in L.A. for one night and needed lodging close to Union Station. Miyako was perfect! Easy walk to and from train station. Great location in Little Tokyo...lovely restaurants and shops in a super-safe lacale. Room was a little small but had everything we needed. Comfy king bed, new flat-screen and DVD, sitting table with 2 chairs, and one of those "special" Japanese toilets. Found the Miyako by accident but will definately stay there again, the next time I'm sightseeing in L.A.

Convenient individual gateway

Good hotel that needs to update the comfort in the rooms. Air conditioning/heat makes an awful noise somewhat disturbing when you need a peaceful sleep. Valet parking is expensive ($19.00 vs. $5.00 in a public parking right behind). Otherwise, it was a good experience.

Room good

Room was clean and interior was good. Internet speed was also fast enough. But in the coffee maker pod, there was a hair, is it cleaned everyday?? I didn't use other facilities, restaurant, spa. The imminent environment is not safe area

Nice location

Miyako Hotel is a well-known hotel chain in Japan. So I was excited to stay there before the trip. But the hotel was nothing different from any other hotel that I could stay paying the same amount of money. I don't mean that something was bad. It's just that it was too ordinary. The building seemed a little old and so were the amenities. I liked that I could buy a bottle of water right in the room for $1, since it was difficult to find convenience store around. The location was perfect, at least for me. I enjoyed the Little Tokyo. Plus, it was close to a metro and Union station. The service was ok. I didn't use the spa, since it seemed a little too expensive. I didn't use the restaurants, but my mother said that the panini sandwich from the cafe was really good.

Close to LA Union Station

Reasonable value and close to LA Union Station (rail), which is located in a section of downtown with few accommodation options. Miyako Hotel is older, but well maintained and clean, with attentive staff, and located in a neighborhood you can explore on foot. Room in which we stayed could of used a remodel, but aside from minor wear & tear it was perfectly fine and good value. Only complaint was a false fire alarm on one of the nights we lodged.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Great Japanese restaurants every which way you look! Super for Sushi and Udon lovers, but not so great for kids who just want hamburgers.

Charming, well maintained, older hotel

I chose the Miyako for its central location in downtown Los Angeles as I was visiting several people in various directions. Although I mostly ate with friends, the dining in and around Little Tokyo is unlimited in type and price. Valet parking was their only option, at $19 a day plus tax and tip. After one night I parked for $14 in next door public garage, but the elevators were so unreliable that I turned to walking up the ramps. But this situation would by no means prevent a future visit!
