... called for a taxi and we got to the airport by 5:45am. In s e ways I think the taxi was better as it took us straight to the terminal we had to be at. Where if we got the shuttle we would of then had to catch the train. A in the end I think it worked out better really. The flight itself was about 5 and a half hours which wasn't too bad, we had the three seats in the middle if the plane so that was good. They had one ...
... our first argument. He was a pig! A rude self absorbed pig. I didn't even know him. Why did I care what he thought about me. He wasn't even my type. So he tells me he's just broken up with his gf. And has commitment issues. (Clearly). He grabs me in the dark nightclub and slams me against the wall. He starts whispering into my ear. I'm gorgeous. Before I knew it his lips were on mine. I pulled away. And went back to the hostel. He followed. We parted ways. I was to find ...

We took a stroll along the waterfront and then it was time to make our way back to the hotel. Alex went to the gym for 3/4 hour when we got back to the hotel.

It was pretty hot. The city has a feel of a place left out too long in the sun, with cracked roads and beat up pavements. This is the first place I've been to I've already passed through on a previous trip. In '09 myself and a few others flew into Las Vegas, and road tripped to ...

After a few hours here we went out for dinner in Westwood and yet another great cafe (barneys beanery) we have been picking the best places for everything - people have all been super friendly, food is great and majority of people look fit - its so different to what I expected it to be I think most people just go to the wrong places we've loved every second here!

How has this hotel rated in the past?
This hotel was quite nice, with all sorts of little added comforts, like toilet seat warmer with bidet attachments (which I didn't use, but appreciated the thought.) It was located next to a little Asian themed mall about 2 blocks from the Union Station.

A good choice.
We spent 4 nights at the Miyako during a trip down the California Coast from San Francisco to San Diego. The hotel has a very pleasant feel to it, the rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious, and the staff very welcoming and helpful. The location in Little Tokyo is safe and quiet. But don't be put off by the Downtown address. There is plenty going on in the area and some very good pubs and restaurants. Ask the Bartender for some suggestions.
I was there 2 weeks ago. The room I had was very dark, old and sad. The location wasn't too bad but yu need to have a car. The carpark at the hotel was full so I parked my car near the hotel, for 8$ per night.
Food at the restaurant was OK but a little bit expensive.
We were in Los Angeles for business and needed to stay downtown. We usually stay at The Downtown Standard but
WOW!! I stayed at the Miyako in LA..had a conference to go to recently. I booked my hotel/flight and had read some reviews here. At first, I was just slightly leary...but decided to give it a go. First of all..the area, Little Tokyo ...wasn't bad at all! For the most part, it was quiet, clean...that's it! Especially for downtown LA. My other associates who stayed at another hotel downtown complained of noise.
Came up to LA to see a couple of shows and booked a room through Priceline. I basically know the area of downtown Los Angeles and the Miyako Inn was the hotel selected for me. As it turned out, it was within walking distance of the Ahmanson Theater, and while (as other reviews point our) it didn't exactly look like great neighborhood, I felt very safe walking to the theater. There was also an abundance of nice restaurants right near the hotel. As for the hotel......it was clean, affordable, the staff was very friendly, the elevators worked effeciently, the room was large and clean, and the thermostat worked great. Oh yes; for picky me....the bed was WONDERFUL! The little cafe in the lobby had a terrific continental breakfast for $5.95...juice, coffee, yogurt and a soft roll. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
I just returned from a long weekend L.A. trip. I didn't stay at the Miyako, but I passed by it so I thought I'd write a quick review to say what I saw. The reason being, I was deciding between Miyako and another hotel before I left, and ended up staying at the other hotel. I visited Little Tokyo on a Sunday evening, and passed by the Miyako Inn and Spa. Looking in from outside, the lobby area seemed really nice. There was quite a few people in the lobby checking in, sitting around, etc. I have no idea what the rooms are like unfortunately. The area is very quiet, there isn't much to do there except for going to Japanese restaurants. You definitely need a car. It's not the busiest area at night, so if you feel unsafe in that kind of an environment, I wouldn't stay in downtown L.A. But if you plan to stay downtown, the Miyako looked perfectly fine to me.
Well, i got this hotel through Priceline, for $40 on a Thursday night.
We spent a couple of nights here prior to the NBA All Star Game in February. It's very well located to public transit. The DASH buses are very clean, the drivers very helpful and at 25 cents it's a real deal.
We were arriving in LA by Amtrak at night and were leaving LA the next morning by bus - so we wanted a reasonable, clean, downtown hotel. We thought that priceline would be perfect for this situation, and we successfully bid $40 for a room. The one hotel I didn't want to get, based on the few comments I'd read on a bidding review site, was the Miyako. And we ended up with... you guessed it. I'd read about the awful neighbourhood, the substandard rooms, etc etc., so we were a bit nervous about it all. Our plans got more complicated when Amtrak was nine hours late, thanks to the Jan '04 cold snap in the northwest. This gave us the grand total of two hours in the Miyako from check in to check out - enough time for a nap and a shower. Normally I wouldn't write a review based on a two hour stay, but considering that this is a hotel used by priceline, and considering the lack of reviews out there about it... I thought we could be helpful. So keeping in mind that our entire experience of this hotel was two hours long... we were quite happy with the property. The Little Tokyo neighbourhood was dead quiet at 5am when we arrived, but didn't feel threatening. It's downtown LA, for crying out loud - don't expect a bustling nighttime street scene.
