Stayed here for only a couple nights when I came down from San Francisco to see the Mike Kelley retrospective at LA MOCA. The hotel was in a great location, easy walking distance to the museum, and safe locale downtown. The staff was friendly and helpful - no problems at all any time we needed anything! I would stay here...

Be prepared for an indifferent staff, (check in is a joke) rooms and furnishings that show their age and amenities shown in website photos that just don't exist (talk about truth in advertising ... non-transparency, etc.). Understanding this hotel is older, that's part of the anticipated charm, but with rooms smaller than most newer properties, much could have been done...

What annoys me about hotels are bad TV, bad gyms, and bad HVAC. The Checkers needs to step it up. My AC blew cold air non-stop and the room was much cooler than the identified temp, the TVs at the treadmill in the gym were full of static - hopefully engineering fixes the problem after my report, and the TV...

My husband and I stayed at the Hilton Checkers for a convention this March. Frankly, we could not find rooms at the Ritz Carlton, JW Marriott or the Luxe, which were much better properties located closer to the venue, but since we are Hilton Honors members, we thought that the Hilton Checkers would have been fine. It was not! The...

Stayed here overnight for a comedy show in DTLA. Room was clean, hotel was lovely. I would definitely recommend it if anyone is trying to stay close to good food areas and see shows or hit some of the fun bars. The bed was soooo comfy it felt like laying on top of a pile of baby ducklings.

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.
