Reviewed 10 March 2015

I was a little reserved when I saw the hotel. It's got sort of a little mall in front of it and the front desk reminded me of a pay by the hour hotel you see on TV. However, upon speaking with the front desk attendant and then entering our room, I was very impressed. The room was spacious enough...

I had to come down to LA for a funeral, so I obviosuly didn't have time for incompetent people. The service boy at the front desk was dressed in kinda racist garb. Didn't have a name tag on either. I understand this hotel is in an Asian neighbourhood, but the uniform was very costume-y. I was forced to wait about...

Dear Coldblackplaid: I am sorry you perceive our staff uniforms as racist and costume-y ( sic). The uniforms were specially chosen to reflect the history and character of China and you may have noticed that our hotel carries the historic Chinese theme throughout the property. With regard to the the costs asoociated with your stay, there is the room charge,...

Comparing with other hotels in the area, even if this one was quite pricy, finally I think you get very good place for your money. It was very comfortable, well located, and extra nice service during breakfast, I hardly recommend the place

I've booked the Best Western Plus Dragon Inn in February 2015, based on the reviews here at Tripadvisor. The Hotel is located right at Chinatown and only 5 min walking to the Subway/Metro Station "Chinatown". That Station is only one station away from the Union Station and roughly 5-6 Stations to reach Downtown. Our experiance with the Best Western was...

Found this place based on reviews. Reviews did not disappoint! Really cool spot near the gates of Chinatown. Very near downtown LA, and just off the highway. Lovely rooms! We had a large spot in the corner of the hotel that actually featured a small balcony. 20 minutes after checking in, the front desk called to ask if everything was...

I have stayed in this hotel at least 7 times over the past five years on work trips. It is convenient and clean. If you are looking for a fancy or highly modern hotel -- this one is not for you. But if you just want a decent place to stay in order to have fast access to downtown LA...

The room we had was very nice and the hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. I just had coffee in the morning but it looked like a pretty decent breakfast for being included. Felt safe because a room key is needed to reach top floors where the rooms were.
