Best Western Hotel Tomo, starting at a mere $139 a night, is an ode to Japanese pop culture (J-Pop for short), as evidenced by its wall of TVs, glow-in-the-dark desk blotters, anime murals, and extreme gaming suites. Located in the midst of Japantown’s kimono shops, sushi bars, and other fun venues, the inn also offers all-you-can-eat shabu-shabu and all-you-can-drink sake at its Café Mums. Warning: Parking (at $20 a night plus tax) is extremely limited.
