Fittingly enough, this branch of a Japanese chain is on the edge of Little Tokyo. Its Japanese Suites have tatami mats, futon beds, extra-deep bathtubs, and paper screens on the windows. The American-style rooms are somewhat plain and compact. Two of the restaurants serve Japanese cuisine at authent...

Most of the guest rooms in this anonymous 21-story concrete tower are nothing special - fine if you score a low weekend rate, not good enough for the money if your rate starts inching to close to $200. The best reason to stay here is to experience one of the handful of wonderfully unique Japanese-st...

The name relates to how the Japanese described Commodore Perry's first ships as they invaded the isolation of the Floating Kingdom. Overlooking a serene Japanese garden at The New Otani Hotel & Garden, this is a soothing and comfortable dining room attended to by gracious, kimono-clad servers. In ad...

While the New Otani chain may be based in Japan, this large and elegant high-rise hotel offers the choice of Japanese or Western-style suites, both designed with a starkly elegant Japanese aesthetic. For superb views, the city's most authentic Asian garden and an unusual Japanese experience, this gr...

A decent hotel - user review
I stayed here in May 2004. I didn't do much in and around the hotel, but here is my .02 worth.The hotel has a large lobby, and a small Starbucks stand (I don't think it's brewed on site thermos kind). The room is nothing special, just a decent clean room. Parking is expensive, but I had a free parki...

Great location for walking - user review
A fun place to be elegant in a Japanese way, but relaxing (e.g. the bar) Starbucks on site. Easy to get to all the Little Tokoyo si...

Great location & very well maintained - user review
For the age of the building it is very well maintained. There are some upgrades needed in bathrooms but overall the place exceed my expectation. It was clean, people where kind and the garden was nice. I highly recommend to people traveling to LA and interested in Japanese food.... Traveler's tip on...

Good Hotel - user review
Hotel Restaurants were way over priced. Room service food was fair to good. Hotel lobby seemed to be the only thing New about the Otani. Clean rooms. Need a free facial Take a shower, water pressure was a bit overwhelming. Not the greatest of neighborhoods for night time roaming. About a 10 to 12 do...

Reasonable prices and good quality - user review
I like Downtown Los Angeles and don't feel threatened by the homeless. There are a dozen edgy galleries and shops in the area I enjoy as well as the casual atmosphere of tiny Japan Town. My deluxe room had newer furniture and comfy ambience but the bathroom floor was stained. The in room safe did no...

Would go back - user review
I stayed at the Otani for 1 night on business. The room was on the small side but overall, it was very nice. Customer service was excellent. If you like Japanese food, the hotel is walking distance to a variety of Japanese restaurants. Also, there is a Starbucks on premises. Downtown location is con...

Fairly Disappointing - user review
I was all pumped up to stay at the New Otani, but it actually isn't all that new. The rooms are dated, the elevators are slow and the fitness room is a joke.While the restaurants' food is acceptable, the room service is horrid. But it is the employees and staff that take the worst part of the trip t...

Very good hotel and very central to LA - user review

Overall I like this hotel and would stay again. The food in both of restaurants where we ate, Thousand Cranes and Garen Grill, was excellent. My only hope is that they redecorate the rooms so...

Pretty good. - user review
The best thing about it (for me) is that they have smoking rooms and says so explicitly on their expedia hotel info page. Everything else was fine/ok. I might consider staying there again n...

Very pleasant - user review
The hotel staff was very pleasant and accomodating. Our room was clean, delightfully quiet, and comfortable, with a view of the rooftop garden. The food, both room service and at the Thousand Crane restaurant, was very, very good. My only complaint was that the shower water was never very hot one mo...

Nice Place - user review
The New Otani in LA is in the heart of Little Tokyo. Short walking distance to many great and inexpensive Japanese restaurants (sushi, shabu shabu, traditional, bakeries). Very clean, beautiful hotel and restaurants. However, I was a little dissapointed with the complimentary shuttle service. Our dr...

Quite in a busy town - user review
this hotel offered a nice quiet retreat from the LAX hussle and bussle. We where at a convention and it was very relaxing to have our rooms here to get away and get recharged. Traveler's tip for business travelers.they have 3 resteraunts and 2 are very pricy so we stayed with the cafe which had good...

Over Priced for an Average Hotel - user review
This hotel was very expensive, but the room and hotel service didn't meet my expectations. The bathroom was completely outdated, there was a handicap bar in the shower that had been torn off the wall, the toilet paper roll had to sit on the sink because the dispenser was broken, etc. The morning new...

First rate bargain - user review
This is an excellent place to stay if you have a car or just doing business near the courthouse complex. It's just a few blocks to major freeways in all directions. Putting aside the putative charm of Little Tokyo , the rest of the immediate neigborhood is a bit tacky, but what isn't in downtown LA ...

Hotel with very good value - user review
This is our second stay at this hotel. I am still impressed what we got for what we have to pay. I have stayed at many different brands of hotels, this one is right up there with many of them.... but, at muc...

Decent choice in LA - user review
Very good value hotel. The rooms were clean, although the bathroom did have an old floor that needed updating. The location near Little Tokyo was great for me as I was doing little sightseeing and enjoyed the restaurants and shops in the ares. Reasonably close to the convention center. The internet ...

Declining, but a great value for the downtown business traveler. I understand they have Asian style rooms as well as western, I would request the Asian style next time. The staff is very courteous and friendly, the Japanese gardens are unexpectedly beautifu...

No title - user review
Friendly staff and good service. Location was acceptable, though compared to other 3 and 4 star downtown hotels, it is one of the furthest most from central downtown. The building itself is in need of repairs, maintenance, and an overall freshening up, as the lobby, corridors, and guest rooms all fe...
