Cool and full of character
The mid-range Miyako Hotel has a sleek and quiet lobby with pretty chandeliers and both a sushi restaurant and grab-and-go cafe. There is an adjoining karaoke lounge that attracts both locals and visitors. Renovated spaces of the hotel are cool and stylish with subtle Asian touches.
In Downtown Los Angeles
A couple blocks from the popular Japanese American National Museum, the Miyako Hotel is located in downtown L.A. in Little Tokyo. The location is a good jumping off point for guests hoping to check out L.A.'s art scene, see a Lakers or Dodgers game, or attend concerts. The airport is a 20-minute drive away. People visiting the city for its beaches and celebrity-studded attractions (such as Rodeo Drive and the lively club scene) may want to consider staying in areas such as Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, or Hollywood.
Appealing renovated rooms and worn un-renovated rooms
Rooms at the Miyako Hotel fall in two separate categories: renovated and un-renovated. The renovated rooms are lovely with Asian accents including calligraphy prints and floral throw pillows. The yet-to-be-renovated rooms have scuffed furniture and bland decor. All rooms have flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, work desks, coffeemakers, mini fridges, and laptop-size safes. Bathrooms in all rooms are quite spacious, with large vanities.
A serene spa, grab-and-go cafe, and restaurant
The highlight of the Miyako Hotel is its lovely spa. The sleek space has calming earth tones and flickering candles along with hot tubs, a sauna, and a rooftop patio for lounging. The hotel also has a fitness center (with just two cardio machines and one weight-training machine) along with a business center and meeting room. There is also a convenient grab-and-go cafe off the lobby and an on-site Japanese restaurant with a breakfast buffet that includes both American and Asian dishes. The adjacent lounge doubles as a karaoke bar.
Located in downtown L.A. a short drive from the Dodgers Stadium and Staples Center, the Miyako Hotel is a 173-room mid-range property with a serene spa. Renovated rooms have pretty Asian-inspired decor while un-renovated rooms show some wear and tear. A fun location in Little Tokyo is near many restaurants and shops and on-site there is a restaurant, bar, karaoke lounge, and grab-and-go coffee shop.
