Clean yet not cosy... Staff is rigid and not too welcoming. You are charged for anything...parking...laundry and a bad breakfast. The coffee is horrible and the food looks for yesterday. All in all if you have to stay there book no food.

I enjoyed my experience at this hotel. The room was spacious and the location was very convenient. The hotel staff, from the front desk to the breakfast staff, were VERY gracious and helpful. I inquired about places to eat within walking distance and the front desk provided me with a map and detailed information about local eateries. (There are several... More

First off, there's going to be an additional $10 for overnight parking. This is because the parking lot is not associated with the hotel. It's just a private parking lot in the basement of Best Western. If you park your car there the time expires at 12pm checkout day. This location is pretty good and the hotel looks pretty safe....

The Best Western Plus Dragon Gate Inn is located in the Los Angeles Civic Center. The Dragon Gate Inn is within easy access of all of the wonderful eating places in Los Angeles and my personal favorite, Mexican Food from East L.A.

After reading a number of reviews of hotels, this one seemed to fit the bill. Have to say i was impressed by the room size and facilities, for what we paid i expected less!

I especially liked the wood floors. Although it was an older property one would never know by the appearance or furnshings. I was surprised by the swag bag I received upon arrival and the complementary bottles of water in my room.

Great hotel. Very family-friendly staff and convenient location. Excellent breakfast and the breakfast staff gave gift bags to my kids with beach balls in them. We were most impressed! The card key machine was broken when we checked in but the front desk staff fixed it as soon as possible and let us into the room in the meantime. Very... More

After a cruise to Mexico in early Jan 15 , we spent three days in LA. The hotel was chosen essentially because of its location being close to Union station & the name of the chain. Location wise , iot fitted the bill . Union station was walking distance away. Local bus could be taken right outside the hotel. Hailing... More

Hello Digvijayps: I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations for the ambience. We try to recapture the feel of what a Chinese hotel would look like in China. We will not be your typical corporate cookie cutter Best Western because of this look. Almost all of our employees are bi - lingual. After all, this is Los Angeles and most... More

This hotel was located in a decent area in Chinatown, nice room with hard wood floors, comfortable beds, good breakfast, underground parking area, only negative was that the bathroom was small. About 10-15 mins to Glendale is a couple of malls, the Galleria indoor mail and then the most beautiful Americana outdoor mall. Absolutely amazing and must go to. Close... More
