Stayed here for business, so the hotel was chosen for convenience for travel. The room was very nice and comfortable. The hotel itself on the interior is gorgeous (you wouldn't know it from the outside). The only negative I would give this hotel is as a business travel (Hilton diamond) I had higher expectations for their breakfast, eggs were very... More

Took the train to LA from Colorado, we stayed here for two nights, it is a nice hotel, and priced quite fairly. We had rooms with two queen sized beds, and ample room left over to wander around. While their website suggests no pool or hot tub, at least thats what I recollect...they do have a hot tub, and it's... More

We received a warm welcome to the hotel from the bell staff and the person at the front desk. Check in was smooth and easy. Our room was nicely furnished and looked out toward downtown LA's big buildings. The room had few signs of wear and tear but overall was quite nice and comfortable. It did seem a little dark....

We rarely stay downtown when in LA. But visiting RiotLA meant we'd need to be in the city. The Hilton Checkers hotel and staff were very nice and completely accommodating. We will definitely stay there next time we're in town. The unexpected part was Checkers Downtown - the restaurant in the Hilton. What a wonderful experience. Executive Chef Walter Rowin... More

This is a nice clean hotel with an amazing rooftop lookout and hot tub. However, service in general is out right terrible. The bartender (while very friendly) was extremely slow with only 6 people in the bar. The food was OK for the price and being in downtown LA. The front desk staff was a bit rude and seemed annoyed...

We just spent a night here to visit our son who has a new apt around the corner. While initially surprised at high cost of downtown hotels, I can completely understand it now. It was fabulous!

I travel to LA on a fairly regular basis. Our principal LA office is in Downtown LA. The Hilton Checkers is my go to hotel. I enjoy the level of service and the intimate aspects of this hotel. Because this hotel is in an historic building (former Mayflower hotel) the rooms are a bit small. They feel more NYC in... More

I travel a lot for work and this hotel hits all of the high notes. It is clean, friendly, convenient, and fast. Everything you would look for in a hotel is at this one location. There are plenty of other ‘trendy’ hotels downtown but this one is my favorite downtown. Truly lives up to the Hilton name.

The Hilton Checkers at the foot of Bunker Hill is a small boutique hotel for those who won't endure the massive Biltmore across the street. Location is everything: Louie's divine patisserie is two blocks away, the lively Water Grill restaurant just one, the glorious public library's around the corner, and the new Broad museum and the LA Phil in Disney...

Downtown Los Angeles as a vacation destination? I had no idea it was such a great place. The Hilton Checkers is walking distance to great shopping, the jewelry and garment districts. It is also near the Disney Concert Hall. For anyone who loves architecture the Art Deco buildings in this area are truly spectacular. Art museums, an ice rink and... More

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.
