Attended a conference here. Everything was very good: nice room, very pleasant and helpful staff. Conference facilities were very pleasant. And, of course, a chocolate chip cookie upon arrival. Very fair value for the price paid

The rooms were spacious and well maintained. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The lobby is a little overwhelming as it is large with high ceilings and not much in it. The Zen Garden is beautiful, but the music was too loud and not at all relaxing. The chocolate chip cookies were delicious.

Excellent hotel, service, and courteous staff. There was quite a bit of noise from outside. The meeting rooms, food service, and staff were great. Centrally located hotel with easy check-in and check-out.

This is not a very good Hilton Property. The rooms are not updated, looks like they came out of the 80s. In eight days we stayed in 4 rooms, and they all needed work. No free internet, no microwave, and pay for water. The only reason we stayed there is because we forced to.

For the Good Side; Excellent staff, beautiful lobby, up scale room furnishings, unique location with many cultural sites to visit and shop. For the other side; Compared to more economical alternatives, No complementary breakfast, No free room internet, Higher price.... hmmmm? Another case where management choices degrade the value of their staff.

Everything about my stay was excellent. My fairly large room was comfortable and well decorated, and had a high quality bed. My room on the 14th floor had unique Japanese style shutters. Unfortunately there is a charge for wifi unless you are Hilton Gold. The fitness center is modern and has as an assortment of cardio equipment and weights. I... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in January 2015. We were in L.A to take in all the sights. This hotel was so close to the train station it made getting around very easy. The staff were lovely and very helpful with and questions we had for them. We visited the beautiful gardens on the roof and found they were... More

Our rooms became our home for 9 days in Los Angeles. Everyone from the desk agents, parking valets and bell men to the housekeeping staff was kind and accommodating. A complimentary shuttle is offered for trips around a 3-mile radius. And when you return, those delicious Doubletree cookies are waiting. Why would you stay anywhere else?

Neighborhood 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.
