I was excited to see China Town. Thought it was going to be a bunch of fun walking around. Walk away not that impressed. Now the entrance gate the 2 dragons were cool.Streets were dirty. Stores weren't impressive at all.

Neat place to explore. I stumbled upon this place while walking around looking at the sites. Authentic restaurants, and atmosphere. Didn’t find too many markets. There were a lot of restaurants, and miscellaneous shops. Good place for lunch if your in the area.

China town has survived the huge construction projects that now surround it. Still many small boutiques, grocery stores and restaurants. Well worth a short visit.

Real Chinatown but small compared to New York and San Francisco. Located in Downtown, very close to Market street and Convention Center. Many shops oriented to tourists, restaurants, authentic ambiance.

Decent size Chinatown, very vibrant on a Friday night. Lots of restaurant choices open late, good for strolling around and deciding where to eat!

From the smell of the food cooking to the various sidewalk markets you get a real feel for authentic Chinatown. Very worthwhile walking through to explore the sights and sounds. And the wonderful smells.

I don't have another China Town experience to compare to this one. There are many restaurants and grocery stores in this area. The hotel was within walking distance, and I felt safe on foot. The colorful gate is interesting and gives you a photo op....More

The China town area is way better than that of D.C. By far! That's all I have to compare too but this one was large and seemed like it was difficult from the surrounding city areas. The entry arch was also very nice.
