“Cozy Hilton in downtown Los Angeles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Staying at the Checkers in LA was like staying at a boutique hotel, with personalized service, friendly faces, and all the amenities of a Hilton property. Great location and a building that reminds you of the opulence of the 1920's. Highly recommended for either business or leisure.

The historical Checkers Hotel in downtown L.A. offers a welcoming, comfortable boutique vibe at a convenient location. The hotel is one of the nicest of the Hilton’s U.S. properties, a great facility for business travellers. The rooms have been laid out for the optimal use of the space, making them feel luxurious and relaxing. The downtown lounge provides a modern, convivial atmosphere for drinks and watching sports on t.v. with the best service occurring at the bar. The rooftop patio offers a pool with cityscape views. The restaurant offers great breakfasts at very reasonable prices, and they have been accommodating with food substitutions for dietary issues. I have always found the staff to be professional and accommodating, especially the daytime doorman.

Hilton Checker's is a beautiful if somewhat overpriced hotel in downtown LA. They seem to have cut back on services since he last time we stayed there...
Location is great right in the center of the action in Los Angeles. Rooms are adequate.

Checkers Hotel provides an intimate and sophisticated hotel experience in the middle of downtown LA, much like a cool spot in Europe. The ambience is warm and feels like an elegant home. With an attentive and courteous staff, Checkers offers a calm oasis in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the city. Spacious rooms and high end finishes appeal to those with tasteful proclivities. Easy access to freeways and city sights makes Checkers Hotel a great choice for both first-time visitors and return visitors alike.

bad, slow service, plus food cold and 'soggy' and phew EXPENSIVE. Great location, and bell staff great. Rooms smaller than I antipisated but very gracefully put together. Parking I thought was expensive $42.50 per night...

Was delightfully surprised with my recent 5 night stay at the Hilton Checkers. My room was quite spacious and comfortable. I travel often, and have to say it was the cleanest room I have stay in for a while. The hotel restaurant is outstanding. I ate one breakfast, one lunch, and one dinner their during my stay. I chose the hotel because of its' proximity to the Metro (3 blocks). The only negative is not really the hotel's fault. Downtown LA is sketchy, and at times I did not feel comfortable with my safety. The hotel is extremely safe. Security is not an issue their.
