I stayed at this hotel while attending a business convention at another hotel. Checkers was old and very ornate. I paid a little extra for a "corner room" and I'm not sure if it was worth the money or not. Although I did not have "neighbors" on three sides of my room, I did have the traffic noise of Grand Avenue all week. I enjoyed the view however and I got used to the traffic. The front desk staff was average and welcoming but they had no idea about parking my car other than their own valet. I found this concerning as I am not familiar with L.A. parking garages and was unsure if I had parked legally (in the garage next to the property used by Checkers to valet). It turns out although parking was expensive, it was somewhat convenient.
The housekeeping staff was on point-thank you Checkers. The person assigned to my room took that "little extra step" in caring for my room. She (or he) refilled my small ice chest daily with ice, re-filled my coffee maker with extra coffee as I drink several cups in the morning, and took the time to arrange things back in order every day. For this reason alone, I would visit the Checkers again.
All in all I give Checkers L.A. a "very good" rating. Parking is expensive, but it is everywhere. Staff was friendly and very helpful, and the hotel was nice, especially for those interested in an old, historic building.
