My experience here was mostly for an overpriced (standard in downtown cities) beer - but the atmosphere was nice, people were great, and they had T.V.'s as well as areas to relax in.

Service was wonderful. The food was tasty. The prices were a bit steep, even for a hotel restaurant. Continental breakfast, which consisted of a bagel, OJ and tea was $14. Small blue cheese wedge salad at lunch was $10. If you're staying at the hotel, you might as well splurge. The food is good so you won't feel like you paid a ton of money for nothing.

We found ourselves in downtown Los Angeles in need of dinner and had read reviews of the Checkers restaurant in the Hilton. The offerings were ok; a few fish, beef and other items. My college age daughter had the fillet, my wife the salmon and I had the short rib pot pie. Each of us had some complaint about some aspect of the dish. The service was barley adequate even though the place was nearly empty. It had the potential to be a great experience but it was not realized.

Had lunch at Checkers and must confess the food was very good. Shrimp risotto was very tasteful and presented nicely. Sit in the court yard outside it is quite, comfortable and cozy. Very good restaurant in downtown LA!

I don't always trust hotel restaurants but I was pleasantly surprised by Checkers Downtown in the Hilton Checkers on Grand Ave. I had the short rib pot pie over root veggies. Deep, yummy flavors that really satisfied. I would come here even if I wasn't staying in the hotel.
