I am traveling for work again and this week I am in San Francisco. Because I make carefully considered, sound decisions and don’t like change, Marne and I are staying at Hotel Tomo in Japantown. I’ve stayed here three or four times before and it’s probably my favorite hotel ever. The rates are super reasonable and it hits nearly all items on my hotel amenities wishlist. It’s a remodeled and seriously improved Best Western, featuring murals by Heisuke Kitazawa, simple design, and no frills to achieve a truly Japanese feel without looking like a kimono vomed all over it.
The last picture is from Marne’s room where Totoro (Bob) and Tarepanda have settled in nicely.
