"Checkers: a Classic downtown"
Checkers is a classic hotel with up to date tech and amenities, and far cheaper than other classics in the area (Bonaventure, Biltmore). Good TV, nice fitness center (small but not crowded), nice cozy bar.
"Great service with good sized room"
Stayed 2 nights and there was nothing bad to say about this hotel. This hotel is conveniently located to bars restaurants and coffee shops. Service from front desk was great and only took me 2 mins for check-in. Most of rooms are $300-400 in LA and I was little surprised that my room was only $200. Keep up the good work.
"Checkered Results in LA"
LA is an expensive city, without the cache' of San Francisco or beauty of San Diego. My stay at Checkers was fine. For $300 a night I would have expected a room with some sort of view, instead of the concrete wall of the building next door. The fitness center was well-equipped, and it was nice to sit for a change in a formal dining room for breakfast. Breakfast was quite expensive, though ($20+ for oatmeal, OJ, tea and English muffin), so I went to the Starbucks down the street the next two mornings. People at the door and front desk were helpful and pleasant.
"Location and Services"
This hotel is conveniently located to many restaurants and public transportation. We easily took the Metro to USC, Universal Studios and Santa Monica Pier/Beach. The rooms were clean and quiet. The rooftop terrace with jacuzzi provided a peaceful oasis for meals and reading. The staff were very responsive to all our needs. I would highly recommend staying at the Hilton Checkers Hotel in LA.
"It is what it is"
One of the largest internal debates I had about my Hilton visit was accommodations. I wanted to stay near Dodger stadium and as a long time Hilton Honors member, I preferred to stay at a Hilton property but Checkers had a lot of varied reviews. Overall, I enjoyed my stay. Yes, the property is an older building however this adds to the class and nostalgia to downtown LA. The staff was all very helpful and friendly and that goes to the door man, front end staff, bar employees and those you saw in the hallway. The rooms are small and they could utilize some upgrades. All in all, the visit was OK. Great view from the view top and we didn't utilize the pool. There is a bar on the roof but it didn't appear to be operational. Free WIFI for honor members otherwise it is a pay for service. If I had any negative comments, it would be the price but if you want a central downtown location near many restaurant and pubs, I would recommend a stay here.
