New Otani Hotel & Garden. Boasting a prime location in the heart of Little Tokyo, the New Otani (434 rooms from $149; or 800/639-6826) is the place to be. Stroll in the rooftop garden, dine at Garden Grill (a teppan-yaki steak-house), enjoy a shiatsu massage at Sanwa Health Spa, and, if you're feeling brave, try a Japanese-style breakfast of rice, egg custard, and fish at A Thousand Cranes before checkout.
