Walking distance to LA live, LA Central Market and the Disney Music Hall. Intimate lobby and bar. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Would return and recommend to others. Plan to pay a lot for parking, but common in LA

Even though we are from Los Angeles, my wife and I decided to spend the weekend downtown and choose the Hilton Checkers Hotel. The hotel was built in the 1920's and has an art deco look. The rooms have been updated and the property is well maintained. The room was comfortable with a desk and had flat screen TV. The... More

I have now stayed three times at this downtown hotel and it has been an oasis in the middle of the urban hustle and bustle. It is an older building in art deco style that has been nicely refurbished to newer Hilton standards. Rooms have been clean and comfortable. Nice bar off lobby with a patio, and although we didnt...

The Checkers Hotel is a historical hotel built in 1927. It is right across the street from the Biltmore but is a small hotel with a nice restaurant . I liked as it is old but up to date, the windows open which is a huge plus. Most of my group stayed across the street at the Biltmore and groused... More

If you like the classic hotel look, this is a good hotel. The building dates back to the 1920s but it has been well-maintained. The rooms are large and comfortable with a flatscreen TV, desk, coffee maker & safe. I tried the restaurant for breakfast and it was excellent although not cheap. The only issue I had during my stay... More

Hilton Checkers is located in the business district of LA, not really close to any of the tourist attractions. It is however close to many if the main roads that wil take you all over the LA area. They offer valet parking for $38 per night which is fine, borderline pricey perhaps. We had to wait 30 minutes for valet... More

The staff was friendly, and also very helpful. Check in was extremely quick as well easy. The room was clean and made up well. Also, the downtown location was great, close to everything so it made our stay very convenient.

Great central location in Downtown L.A, walking distance to metro stops and L.A landmarks. Don't forget to checkout the new food shops in Grand Central Market. Staff was super friendly and room was very clean. Bed was comfy.

This intimate hotel is nestled in the heart of downtown LA. Very clean, comfortable, and restful. However, the room sizes live up to the description of being a "boutique" hotel. We had to turn sideways to squeeze between the desk and bed. The food was satisfactory - typical hotel fair.

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.
