"A quality hotel near the USC medical campus, and next door to Little Tokyo. with accommodating personnel. It was clean and safe. From the front desk clerks to the security staff, everyone was accommodating. I accidentally left my house and car keys in the room after checkout, and the hotel returned them to me. A wonderful place to stay.2020-09-26"

"A lovely hotel, and the front desk clerks, bell people, and valet were so incredibly friendly, helpful, and kind. The on-site dining catered to Asian tastes, but there was a small cafe and small room service menu for American tastes. There were many Japanese and Asian restaurants in the immediate area, including right across the street. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.2019-04-21"

This time the hotel clerk was apologetic and gave us a discount since no other rooms were available.2016-01-19"

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
