San Francisco, California 94115
This centrally located hotel is an impressive blend of Japanese hospitality and tradition, featuring beautifully appointed rooms and superb service. The hotel anchors the east end of a five-acre modern complex, The Japan Center, which houses scores of shops featuring merchandise from Japan and the Orient, restaurants, sushi bars, art galleries, a bookstore, and movie theaters. The Center is also the cultural focal point for San Francisco's Japanese community.
The Miyako's lobby overlooks a dramatic garden with a seven-foot waterfall. The hotel is fortunate to house one of California's great seafood restaurants, ELKA. With an exciting array of California fresh seafood, French technique, and Japanese-style presentation, nationally recognized Chef Elka Gilmore creates a memorable dining experience.
Nearly all rooms are furnished in a comfortable western style with striking accents such as handİpainted and lacquered fusuma screens from the past, and delicate rice paper shoji screens that slide away to reveal San Francisco views. Several rooms and suites are classic Japanese with raised sleeping platforms, tatami mats, down futons, and rock and bamboo gardens. There are also East/West rooms that feature both Japanese- and American-style sleeping accommodations. Ten luxury suites and two rooms have their own redwood saunas. One of the hotel's most popular amenities is the traditional sunkenİtub (furo), available in most rooms, which gives guests the opportunity to indulge in the relaxing rite of bathing Japaneseİstyle.
On the Club Floor, amenities include elegant marble bathrooms with oversize whirlpool tubs, use of a yukata (cotton kimono), and complimentary continental breakfast.
