Excellent rooms, restaurant and bar. Centrally located. Good all around hotel. Stayed there for a week on business. The hotel is an older building but the rooms are newly renovated. The place has the solid, stately feel of an old property with modern conveniences.

I stayed here for a friend's wedding for two nights. Most of the guests stayed at the Millennium Biltmore, where the wedding took place. I am so glad I stayed here instead. Besides the fact it was cheaper, the hotel has a boutique feel. All of the employees were always friendly and the smaller hotel allowed for more natural interaction.... More

It's pretty hard to find a decent business hotel in downtown LA that is reasonably priced, quiet, and has good service, but the Checkers Hilton meets my expectations. It's a smaller hotel nestled at 6th and Grand, centrally located. Not a big tourist hotel, which makes it quiet and easy to get around in. Good fitness facilities and restaurant. Staff... More

Great downtown location. Helpful staff and easy check in. Nice lobby bar and comfortable rooms, we didn't spend too much time at the hotel as we were out exploring. We did have room service and the food was good. One issue is that the rooms do not have fridges, this may be an issue for some. All in all a... More

I stayed here for 5 weeks for work, and overall it was a great experience. The roof deck was a great place to relax after a long week, and has a nice hot tub.

We needed a place to stay for one night before catching our flight home to the UK the following morning, since I had never been to LA, I wanted something quite central so I could have a wander around town. The location for me was spot on, right next to the US Bank Tower building which is part of the... More

Hilton Checkers is a Hilton located in downtown Los Angeles in a renovated building originally built in the 1920s. The property has a small boutique flair, with Hilton standards. Rooms are appropriately furnished with the expected firm beds, comfortable pillows, and soft sheets. Business men seem to be the primary customers. However, for some reason, throughout my six days stay,... More

Bed was like a hammock. AC sounded like a jet engine so we turned it off and sweated it out. We were on the 12th floor and the street noise was terrible. Old hotel with windows that are not soundproof. The day before we arrived, they asked me to select my room online, which I did. I selected an inside... More

Nice hotel. Compact. Can get drinks in lobby bar and take to lovely penthouse lounge area overlooking downtown. Some nice restaurants nearby. Walked to Macy's for emergency outfit run for my son. No fridge in room. Rooms decent size. Beds ok. Little sloped.

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.
