We had reservations for two rooms at this hotel in downtown LA. On arrival only one of the rooms was ready even though it was almost 3 p.m. We waited until after 4 before the room was ready for us. And another issue was the dismissal over this from the ladies at the front desk. I called Hilton Help Line...

Now this was a great stay! At the recommendation of a friend we booked the Hilton Checkers for a weekend. We flew from Ohio to LA. When we arrived they were able to give us a room EARLY. That started off the weekend right. The room was not huge but perfect for our time there. Very friendly front desk service....

The hotel reception and bar areas are quaint and reminiscent of older days, however, the service staff was excellent! The door men, desk staff and bartender were all very helpful with directions, questions, recommendations, help in the business center, etc. The rooms were quiet, and the bed was comfortable. Wifi worked wonderfully when in the hotel. This is the first...

The Hilton Los Angeles Checkers hotel had a great location. The room was tiny but the people were kind. They got me checked in very quickly and up to my room. The view was great! The bathroom was HUGE compared to the room size.

I was issued a Smoking Room and I have allergies, so that was no good. There was a movie shoot going on and I was not able to get back into the hotel after my meetings. Some prior proper planning by the hotel staff would have gone a long way to making my stay better.

We had a very nice stay at the Hilton Checkers in LA. It is conveniently located to downtown and USC, the rooms are a good size and clean, the bed very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. If you are not looking for ultra-luxury – it’s a very good value for the area. It started off a bit rocky, though....

Checkers was the perfect location for our business needs. Smack dab in the middle of downtown LA, you have the best convinence of dining and shopping. The busy of "Hollywood" was all around as you constantly see TV and movie production companies busy at work.

Hilton Checkers is in the heart of the city and close to all. I was there for the Aretha Franklin concert and we walked. We walked to our favorite restaurant and had a wonderful time. The hotel was clean and neat and all was well.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
