Fully renovated in 2018, this boutique hotel stands adjacent to the Japan Center Mall and offers many rooms with views of the neighborhood and beyond. Their lobby space has been reinvented to offer an alluring lounge vibe, lofted beam ceilings, and a craft bar providing excellent cocktails and Hawaiian-inspired bites throughout the late afternoon and evening. What’s more, acclaimed Michelin-starred chef Pim Techamuanvivit (of Kin Khao fame) has recently opened her second new restaurant in the U.S. at the Hotel! (See also: Nari restaurant listing). This property will appeal to the young and hip, but also to families who may wish to take advantage of their spacious suites and affordable parking. Group and business travelers to Japantown will notice that the Muni bus lines and Uber/Lyft services provide easy connection to downtown.
