“Good location and nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We didn't get off to a great start given the check-in clerk told us the corner room we reserved wasn't available when it actually was. He apparently thought we were asking for an upgrade, to which we were entitled given we are Hilton Diamond members, so telling us it wasn't available was bad enough, but we were actually paying for this room. It took the manager to get this sorted out but it was worth it. We had great views and the room was spacious and quite nice. It is in the financial district which turned out to be a great location in a very pretty area within walking distance to most things. There is also a metro station one block away which will take you anywhere. Take in the beautiful view from the roof, currently a cocktail lounge.

Room Tip: It's worth it to get a corner room. They are much bigger and with windows on two sides giving it...

We stayed in the heart of LA last trip but decided to try this hotel after walking by it last time. It looked so lovely and appeared to be a bit smaller than some of the big box hotels. Not usually my favorite - like more boutique hotels with an elegance and quality. Try the strawberry water in the lobby - yum!

The location is perfect, as well. We were only about 3 blocks from the Disney Concert Hall, many fine restaurants and easy egress/ingress to the freeway. We had dinner only 1.5 blocks away at McCormick's - very nice. Daily Grill and many other nice restaurants close by.

From the moment we arrived, the staff was just wonderful. Couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. Our room was on the next to the top level under the penthouse. Nice corner room...beds were very comfortable. This is one of the most important things for us - comfortable beds. No matter how grand a hotel may be, if the beds are horrible, we will never go back. That is their business - good night's sleep, right? GREAT beds here.

We had the opportunity to have breakfast under unusual circumstances. Our room was great ... BUT ... about 10:30 or 11 pm we heard strange noises above our heads. Turns out it was the hot tub on the deck above our bedroom. We called and the staff immediately moved us to another room with two comp tickets for breakfast and offered their sincere apologies. Very nice (and appropriate) response but not always the case. I give 4 stars for the way they handled this situation.

The breakfast we had was lovely and we would come back to this hotel again next time we are in LA!

Thank you Hilton Checkers and Staff!

Room Tip: Wouldn't suggest room 1211. Right under the hot tub on the top floor. Little noisey when in u...

I have been staying at Hilton Checkers for 20+ years. The hotel is in great downtown location and staff is attentive and professional. Unfortunately, the property is in need of a major renovation. The beds are old and smell bad, the bathrooms are showing their age and the overall appearance of the property is in need of a major refresh.

This is my new go-to hotel in LA. The location is perfect with easy access to the 110. Also, it's walkable to restaurants and LALive/Staples. The staff was helpful when I left an item behind. I didn't try the restaurant or gym.

What a fabulous hotel in the heart of downtown LA. Great service, clean, value and luxurious. Everything that you expect from Hilton. Ask for the AAA or CAA rates. Even the room service prices were reasonable. Definitely a recommend and will return.

I stayed at the Hilton Checkers during a recent trip to LA.

Pros: I got this hotel for a great rate. It was a beautifully decorated, clean, brightly lit hotel. The room was what you would expect from a hotel in a major city, small with all the essentials (including fluffy robe, magnified makeup mirror and peter thomas roth products). Staff was friendly and quick; Cucumber water was waiting upon arrival. We tried the rooftop hot tub and were completely alone so it was basically a private pool.

Cons: 1) Parking - we needed to rent a car for the weekend and pricing in the garage next door varied - some nights it was $36, others it was up to $42
2) Skid row - BE CAREFUL if you are new to the area and following a GPS. We accidentally drive through Skid Row at midnight. I think I will have nightmares for weeks.
