I have been having good luck with Hilton lately. The Hilton Checkers in Downtown LA was quite nice. The room was well appointed. With the exception of my bedside table lamp rusting away the room was clean and pretty. It was about the size you would expect out of a room in a downtown hotel.
The rooftop spa was fantastic. It was a bizarrely cold day in LA, and raining. And I was the only one up there, on this gorgeous deck among sky scrapers in a bubbling hot tub… I definitely enjoyed that!
The only bad experience was from some people who were eating the Lobby. I do not believe they were guests, they were just eating dinner at the hotel. I was waiting for some friends to arrive and these guys started talking to me, and then got really rowdy and completely inappropriate. Seriously, the guy asked me if I wanted to make “Arian” children with him! Of course I got up and walked outside. The doorman saw me and immediately asked me if something was wrong, and I waved it off and said that I was just waiting for some friends and some crazy guys in the lobby were harassing me. He was so upset he was willing to have them escorted out. It was very well handled.
All in all, it’s a good hotel for its price. If you want LA culture, I wouldn’t really suggest staying in downtown, head out to one of the beach areas or Hollywood. But if you are on business and need to stay in the center of it all, this hotel is a great choice.
