Orlando, Florida
Reviewed 27 May 2015

It centrally located in downtown. It's a great hotel to stay at, and a good option for people looking for an updated hotel in the area. Rooms are big for a downtown hotel with all the amenities one can ask for. The bar is also very friendly.

I always enjoy returning to the Hilton Checkers. A wonderfully warm and intimate atmosphere, where everything is taken care of quietly and efficiently. An "old world" experience with all the modern amenities!

This is a very nice hotel, I liked that it's not hyper modern, pleasant staff, pleasant room (I asked for a quiet one and it was). I was in and out fairly quickly, but would be happy to stay there again. Comfy bed, nice desk to work at, decent wireless.

An older style establishment, Hotel Checkers still has its charm. If you like boutique, and a place with charm, then Checkers is a good fit. The bar in the lobby serves fantastic Martinis and awesome sliders! A must have! The staff are great, so too the facilities - for an older place. It really has charm. And the roof top...

I will start by saying that the staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay. However, the follow-through on requests wasn't consistent. I had to call twice to make sure a late check-in was listed on our reservation. The first time they said that noted it, but when I called back to check, it wasn't. Then, we were given...

Neighbourhood 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.
