San Francisco's Best Western Miyako Inn will adopt a "Japanese pop culture persona", starting with a contest to rename the hotel. The new theme will be "an energetic, optimistic expression" of anime, manga, J-Pop, and street fashion, said Matt Harvey, Creative Director of Joie de Vivre Hospitality, a boutique hotel operator that took over the 125-room hotel in May. Thanks, Gilles Poitras.
