We didn't like how they gave away our room of two queen beds and made us share a bed. We are sisters and prefer paying to sleep in our own beds. The room is close to downtown and was a good location for us.

The most friendly, helpful accomadating staff you'll ever encounter . The G M Eddie even went out of his way to welcome us. There were 10000 of us in town for the National association of Letter carriers in town for our convention. All of us who stayed at Checkers loved it.

Staff are helpful. Food is capable nothing outstanding. Bar area downstairs is neat. Rooftop could be great but it needs to be cleaned, w nicer furniture and a bar. Missed opportunity to make this a better property. Rooms are nice but small by Hilton standards. Walls are worn and dated. Restaurant staff are terrific as are bell desk.

This hotel was one block from the location of my business meetings. Hotel was lovely, and service was friendly and attentive. Food for breakfast and lunch - good variety and delicious. Also appreciated the pace at which breakfast and lunch were prepared and served.

Came here as same time last near to get my son settled into USC. Disappointed this time. 5th floor room with view of a wall (no disclosure of this on Hilton app). TV and one phone in room didn't work. Took long time to fix. Didn't have TV for a day and asked for accommodation on checkout and was given... More

Stayed here while visiting USC, quick uber ride from hotel. Clean and nice room. Very helpful staff. Kind of pricey, but nice to be able to walk around downtown. No frig in room, and breakfast (not even coffee) available in morning except for in hotel restaurant. Lots of restaurants close by. Had breakfast at a crepe place around the corner,... More

We're stayed here many times. This time it just was not the same. No complimentary coffee in the morning in the bar or near the restaurant. Lounge service was slow due to understaffing. The poor bartender just could not keep up with the whole lounge himself. Rooms were perfectly nice as usual with no apparent difference here. When we returned... More

The hotel is in the middle of downtown LA, so it's less than 2 miles from Union Station, less than 10 miles from Griffith Observatory, which is one of the best free things you can do in LA. It's also not too far from LAX, about 18 miles. The best part is that the hotel is within walking distance to... More

Hilton Checkers LA is a very outdated hotel. HVAC is poor, light streaming through doors at night, old bathrooms with terrible water pressure. Low quality of breakfast offerings. The only good thing about this hotel is the staff.

I was not impressed by the Hilton Checkers Hotel. It was badly in need of an update. Lighting was poor and staff in the lobby bar were extremely slow and unresponsive. Will look elsewhere next time I need to stay 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.
