This the place that you want to stay for ringing in the New Year Quietly. 😉 Rooms are nice ,big , and the Bath tubes are to die for. I would stay there again. Would like a better view sometimes. ( Always the Library).

An older style establishment, Hotel Checkers still has its charm. If you like boutique, and a place with charm, then Checkers is a good fit. The bar in the lobby serves fantastic Martinis and awesome sliders! A must have! The staff are great, so too the facilities - for an older place. It really has charm. And the roof top... More

I will start by saying that the staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay. However, the follow-through on requests wasn't consistent. I had to call twice to make sure a late check-in was listed on our reservation. The first time they said that noted it, but when I called back to check, it wasn't. Then, we were given... More

I usually choose Hilton/Hampton when I travel, so when I had a trip to L.A. to plan, I checked here first. After reading reviews and seeing pictures, I did very little shopping around. Here are some notes about this DTLA hotel: -This is located in the heart of the Financial District which means it is close to a lot of... More

If you like a smaller, quiet, intimate, perfectly located hotel in DTLA, this is it! Please don't cheat yourself and skip breakfast, as it is extraordinary.

Yes, boutique. Though a Hilton, this hotel has the feel of a small hotel. The building is rather narrow and the lobby very nice, but not the grand or imposing lobbies of many Hiltons. There's not much walking needed here! Rooms and service were very good. Downtown LA is improving, and there plenty of restaurants nearby if you want to... More

I stayed this weekend at the Hilton Checkers hotel. I decided to book the Penthouse, because I could get it at a reduced rate due to hotel points. I was so excited to stay there. The location is fabulous, right next to the grand Downtown Library. The rooftop terrace was superb, and open to all guests ---spectacular views of downtown,... More

We stayed at Hilton Checkers while in town for the LA Times Book Festival at USC. The hotel is a little older but it's nice. The front desk people were very nice and the door guys were always very nice and helpful. The location was great! Close to great restaurants and cafes and a Starbucks right across the street. We...

I stay at Hilton Checkers 10 to 15 times each year. I have never had anything less than a very good experience. From registration and parking to room service and housekeeping, everything is comfortable and convenient.

Staying in Downtown

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.
