Welcome to BEST WESTERN PLUS Dragon Gate Inn! The Staples Sports Arena is just a short drive away from our Los Angeles hotel, making it easy to catch a game, concert or special performance. When you are staying in downtown, the whole city is just steps away. Our Los Angeles hotel is near the Amtrak Union Station, so guests can opt for public transportation as their vehicle of choice. The Los Angeles Convention Center is also a few minutes away, and many business travelers stay with us while they are in town for an event or tradeshow. L.A. Live and Hollywood are in the neighborhood, making it simple for our Los Angeles hotel guests to make the most of their trip. The Lakers, Clippers, Kings and Dodgers all play their home games nearby, and catching one of them is an exciting addition to any vacation. We are centrally located to Universal Studios, too, which is nearly required for adventure lovers and traveling families. The Hollywood Bowl, Nokia Theatre, and Kodak Theatre are also close to our Los Angeles hotel. When planning your trip, make sure to check off the Music Center, Ahmanson, Disney Concert Hall and MOCA, too. Many of our guests are Dorothy Chandler fans, and will want to make that part of their trip as well. There is no shortage of things to do nearby, whether it is shopping on Rodeo Drive or visiting the beaches. If you are staying at our Los Angeles hotel on business, rest assured that you won't have to handle the famous traffic, because you will be close to everything. Some of our regular guests work with USC Hospital or the superior court, federal court or local court. We also welcome many business travelers to the financial or fashion district, and federal and state buildings bring civil servants to the area. Book today and save on your room at BEST WESTERN PLUS Dragon Gate Inn!

Stayed with friends!

We needed somewhere close to Club Nokia for a concert that was cheap! This was perfect, right in Chinatown which was a plus! A few minutes drive to Little Tokyo and a short drive to Club Nokia! The rooms were nice and the staff were so helpful! Also liked that you need a room key to go up in the elevator! We would come back late and leave early and the valet wouldn't be there but the staff was always at the front desk to get my car keys! Thanks a bunch! Will stay here again for sure!

Weekend in Chinatown

received an upgraded room. Room was nice and clean but door and wall were not noise proof at all. The one bad thing about this hotel is that we can hear all the noises next door and outside. It was not peaceful at all.

No too shabby

This place was nice for the price. I liked that you needed a key to take the elevator up to the rooms. It made me feel safer. The area is not horrible like some of the other places for the price. We were here for a Clippers game at Staples and the bus stop was right out front it was only $3 and a 10 min bus ride. My only complaint is that when I showered in the morning the bathtub would not drain! It kinda grossed me out but when I told the front desk they were so apologetic and they paged some sort of maintinence to come fix it!

surprising good hotel for the price

I had to stay in Los Angeles for business on a Sunday evening. The Best Western Dragon Gate Inn is within easy walking distance from the LA Amtrak station, so I tried the hotel in spite of slight concerns about the neighborhood. The walk was fine, the neighborhood wasn't too bad, and the hotel was surprisingly good. The hallways were nothing special, but the room was very clean, had a nice little desk for work, and had modern bedspreads and decorations. All the plumbing worked well and they had plenty of clean towels. Breakfast was disappointing (you get a coupon for a little shop in the lobby that is somewhat like a convenience store), but they did have some healthy choices. On the whole, I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience and would definitely stay here again if I were looking for a clean place near the train station.

Close to Downtown and Union Station

Comfy room, quiet... close proximity to downtown, Dodger Stadium, union station. We were able to walk and take the bus/light rail to.. Grammy Museum, LA Live, Pasadena and Dodger Stadium. The free breakfast was surprisingly good.

Excellent Value in A Good Location

I have stayed in this hotel twice now, and I plan to go back. It is a good value and the staff is very cooperative and helpful. The breakfast that is part of the deal is bare bones but not unlike the breakfasts that are available at, say, Hampton Inns. I did enjoy their freshly made waffles and there freshy cooked hard boiled aggs. It is in a good location for exploring Chinatown and even Little Tokyo. The Chinese American Museum is fairly close as is Olvera Street with all of the Mexican carts. I really like this part of the city and I hope it keeps its charm.

The sandwiches available at the small coffee shop at the hotel are decent (freshly made to order) and I ate half of a sandwich the first day and put the other half in the refrigerator to eat thenext day.

not bad

Did not like the fact that they charged $10/night for parking. Not fair at all.
