$95 a night is already a steal. Especially in San Fran, especially in a hipster hotel!
Take a stroll through San Francisco’s Nihonmachi, and you sense a vibrant, animé-inspired energy pulsing through the streets of the country’s most thriving Japanese-American community. The ‘hood is chock full of Eastern-influenced architecture, art galleries, Kimono shops and hidden culinary gemswhile located just a short hop stop from the bustle of Union Square.
So where should you stay to experience it best? The newly opened Hotel Tomo. Inspired by Japanese pop culture, this boutique hotel features an original mural from Giant Robot fave Heisuke Kitazawa in every guest room, along with a docking station for your iPod, a flatscreen TV and a beanbag chair. There are also gaming suites where you can watch animé movies or play Wii games on six-foot LCD projection screens, and for chow hounds, Mum’s Restaurant, a funky spot that’s known for its amazing all-you-can-eat shabu shabu.
Because they love us (and you!) so much, the good people at Hotel Tomo are offering Pulse readers a special rate of $95 a night on a deluxe king room, subject to availability. Which means you can save your hard-earned coin for more important things, like lots of sake. Just enter the access code “GENART” when you book online, or mention the rate code “D-GENA” to get in on this hot deal!
Here’s a geek sugar video taking a tour of the gaming suites.
