Dodger Stadium’s perch in the hills of Elysian Park puts it smack dab in the center of several great L.A. neighborhoods, giving visitors a range of options for hotels nearby depending on what they’re looking for. The area isn’t entirely walkable, so the best hotels are usually a quick rideshare away, but there are a handful of excellent hotels less than 10 minutes away by car. Plus, visitors can always stay near Union Station in downtown, where a shuttle ferries baseball fans to Dodger games and back. Here are our top picks.
Best Western Plus Dragon Inn
Best Western is your best bet for a hotel under a mile away from the stadium. Located in the heart of historic Chinatown, the hotel puts you just a few blocks from Elysian Park. The hotel sports Chinese (and kitschy, faux Chinese) decorations in the lobby, but the rooms are simple and clean, which is really all you need since you should spend most of your time exploring the neighborhoods nearby.

For hip and understated accommodation, check out the Hotel Covell in Los Feliz. The achingly chic hotel is just west of Dodger Stadium, and unlike hotels downtown, you won’t get stuck in crazy downtown traffic to get to the game. The suites look more like apartments than typical hotel rooms, so the Covell feels like a home away from home. And the hotel’s wine bar serves small plates and serious vino, making it the perfect place to grab a post-game nightcap.

Omni Los Angeles Hotel
Primarily a business hotel, the Omni is perfect for anyone who considers it serious business to attend a Dodger game. The hotel is quietly elegant, and it provides a solid slate of amenities like a heated lap pool and spa. Plus, Union Station is just a 25 minute walk away, so you can skip renting a car. Don’t worry; there’s plenty to explore nearby in Bunker Hill and downtown, like the buzzing Grand Central Market just down the block from the hotel’s front door.

For the ultimate L.A. experience stay in a hotel that has served as the set for countless classic movies. The Biltmore plays a central role in films like Ghostbusters, Beverly Hills Cop, Ocean’s Eleven, and Fight Club. Even before Hollywood caught on, the hotel, which has been designated a landmark by the city, captured visitors’ imaginations. Constructed in 1923, the extravagant hotel, with its ornate ballrooms, served as the stopover for figures like JFK and Winston Churchill, so you’ll be in good company at this old L.A. masterpiece.

Silver Lake Pool & Inn
A brand new boutique hotel steps from bustling Sunset Junction, the Silver Lake Pool & Inn encapsulates the neighborhood’s uber-cool vibes in a converted apartment complex on Santa Monica Boulevard. Comfy mid-century modern furnishings, lots of greenery, and cool kid neighbors will put you in a supremely L.A. mood before you hit a game. There are plenty of food and drink options nearby, along with shops to browse should you need to kill time during your stay in town.

In 2018, the historic Mayfair Hotel emerged from a long remodel like a butterfly ready to flaunt its beauty to the world. Opened in 1926, the hotel hosted the first ever Oscars after-party, giving it serious old Hollywood cred, but the redesign has given the Mayfair an entirely contemporary style and a sleek new restaurant. Rooms feature bold artistic touches to go along with the hotel’s stellar permanent art collection, while the convenient location in City West should allow you to avoid some of the traffic getting up to Dodger Stadium.
