So, without further ado, let's get started with number 37.

Given that tanuki (raccoon dogs) are often depicted as having large testicles, I can't help but think this is a reference to testicles...

As in, "So... you wanna go to a love hotel?" Both subtle and direct at the same time. While not the funniest name on the list, it is definitely one of the more clever ones. If you'd like to see this hotel's website you can check it out here. They have a nice "equipment" page.

1. Banana and Donut バナナとドーナツ banana to donatsu

I have nothing to add, the name speaks for itself. And yes, that is their real logo that you see in the upper left of the screenshot you see above.
If you'd like to check out their website you can do so by clicking here. They have quite an extensive food menu and plenty of pictures of their rooms.
