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.

We arrived at the Hilton checkers hotel at around 2 PM and fully expected to be able to check in given our Hilton diamond status. However, we were informed that there were no available rooms so we had to have them expedite a room so that we could get in to change to go to the

The Checkers is located eithiw walking distance to many restaurants, bars and the Metro. Rooms are well kept and clean. The lobby was being remodeled during our stay even though Hilton's web site stated it was to be completed by December.

This Hotel has evidently not even attempted to keep pace with the number of face-lifts people in this town are typically getting. Pretty much everything in the room is outdated and I don’t even want to know what both the carpet and the curtains have seen and experienced over the

My husband and I booked a two-night getaway over New Year's at the Hilton Checkers. Upon arrival we discovered two things: First, the lobby and most of the ground floor is under renovation (other reviewers have commented on the drafty and cramped check-in experience), and

Dear 22marthav, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience about your recent stay at our hotel. As a Hilton Honors member, you are among our most valued guests. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and we're very sorry your stay coincided with the renovation of the lobby and lounge areas of the hotel. We do have a message on hilton.com stating that we are under renovation, however, depending on which site you booked your reservation, it may or may not have appeared and for that we sincerely apologize. Renovations are both exciting and challenging at the same time and a bit unpredictable during the process. The Staff has tried to make the best of the situation for all and I apologize once again that you were disappointed.

How is the WiFi reliability and speed? Lobby and in rooms?
I had to call the front desk, still it seemed I was offline each time I picked up my phone. the WiFi is free if you are a Hilton Honors member, so do sign up! hope this helps.

LdyBug16, The hotel is in the heart of the commercial downtown district, traveling alone or traveling in a group should make no difference if you are aware of your surroundings and smart. The neighborhood is not "sketch", but it is a major city so take from that what you will. The Red line of LA's Metro Rail, will get you from the hotel to Hollywood. The nearest Station from the hotel is about a mile.

How close to the colosseum and what's the best way to get there?
It was 3 miles to the auditorium and if you have transportation arranged in advance, it’ll be easier. Or you can get an UBER.

I think it would be hard place to go without a car. You could use Lyft or Uber though.

"Rooms are all generally ok, the ones ending in 05/06/07 are near the elevators I believe."
