Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Three night post cruise stay. Room on 5th floor. Clean and very comfortable hotel, with traditional styling. The room was a good size with a Queen sized comfy bed. Great bathroom, had a powerful shower and good Crabtree and Evelyn bath products. The carpet looked pretty new, large flat screen TV and there was a coffee maker, hairdryer, a safe and ironing facilities. Efficient check in and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. We didn’t eat there as too expensive (same as most city hotels). Area is more of a commercial district not tourist but felt safe. You can find some eateries and Starbucks or Walgreens for drinks/snacks in walking distance only a couple of blocks.

My Wife and I recently stayed at the Hilton Checkers as part of a package involving stays in Las Vegas and a Californian Cruise from LA. It was part of our delayed 30th Wedding Anniversary celebrations.
The Hilton Checkers could best be described as a Boutique European style hotel.
We were very grateful to receive an upgrade to a mini suite from the lovely Althea Abdallah and were incredibly well looked looked after by the lovely Bea who made a complicated check in ( we were in a party of 8 people) very easy. My personal thanks go to these lovely ladies.
The hotel is situated downtown which in honesty was unsuitable for our needs as we were tourists and needed to be nearer Hollywood etc., but this was no fault of the hotel ,it was our travel agent.
The hotel is well situated for several restaurants,Maceys and several bars.
The City itself had closed down for Easter break so things were generally very quiet in town.
The hotel serves a nice ,if somewhat expensive breakfast and the dinner menu is very good and reasonably priced should you not wish to venture out.
The rooms are furnished and decorated to a very high standard and the bathrooms are very nice and are cleaned to a very high standard.It was however very noisy in the early Mornings,this was not helped by our close proximity to the lift.
The staff are very nice and helpful and the car valet who I have seen criticised on these pages was nice,welcoming and very helpful.
There are bus stops right outside the hotel and one is for a tour that takes you all over LA ,however the hotel is 30 minutes minimum away from Hollywood and the beaches etc so in my opinion not good for tourists like us.
In summary the Hilton Checkers is a very nice hotel,worthy of its 4* rating,probably more suited to the business customer,but great if you want to visit Downtown LA.

First of all, kudos to Faith at the front desk. The room was not to my liking upon checking and she resolved everything easily and with good communication via text messages while we were out.
The rooftop patio made for a wonderful post-breakfast spot with my wife, the fitness center was clean and sufficient for my workout.
The room was very quiet, something that I find invaluable while traveling.
Breakfast seemed a bit expensive for what you get, but the service was quick and friendly, and hey what do you expect downtown LA for prices?

If it had an executive lounge it would be a perfect hotel, but it is very good. The service was good, even when in the restaurant I needed assistance in applying my breakfast credit. People were happy to assist with luggage and checking in and out.

The room was a corner king, and while small did not feel too small. The bathroom was huge and had well-selected toiletries. The bed was comfortable and the decor was very tasteful.

The Diamond continental breakfast had everything that I would want for breakfast, but for those who enjoy eggs and sausage, you could upgrade it for a nominal fee.

I wanted to add an additional night to a pre-existing reservation. Supervisor told me that not only was the room I'd booked not available the additional night, I would have to down grade AND pay more for both nights?! Within 24 hrs they revised that to keep the original rate for the 1 night, still downgraded me and charged me $50+ more for the add night. Mid-week, winter, during coronavirus. Really? No complimentary water, coffee, tea in lobby. Restaurant limited hours. No room service after 11. Tiny room, had to walk sideways to get past the end of the bed. Comfortable bed. Water Grill restaurant across the street was the best thing going for this hotel. Hilton Honors member, didn't feel the love. Very disappointing!

I stayed in room 712. The were clumps of hair left in the shower and brown stains on the bathroom ceiling. The room was very small for the price ($418.38/night) and I was disappointed there was no closet or hangers. The bed was incredibly lumpy.

This hotel should not carry the Hilton brand in my opinion and based on my experience being a diamond member. The room appointments are reminiscent of a best western, and they’re cowering behind the pandemic to prevent from having to provide the level of service one would expect from a property like this. Moreover, they’re completely unresponsive when you complain. We’ll be in LA again for sure, but we’ll avoid this property like the plague.

My family and I stayed at Hilton Checkers one night to go to a Dodgers game. Had it not been for one awful experience I would have rated this hotel 4 stars. We arrived early and were checked in to a room that was comfortable (though with views of neighboring buildings). The valet was super helpful and kind. Beds were comfortable and room was clean. The problem occurred with breakfast on the morning of check out. My husband and I had the breakfast buffet with our 3 young kids on Easter morning. We sat ourselves and served ourselves. The total bill for 5 breakfast buffets came to about $125. It was a delicious meal. I did not write in a tip since it was a buffet but just signed my name and room number. I realized after leaving the restaurant that I had written the room number of the hotel from the night before so I immediately messaged the hotel to make sure it was appropriately billed. They found the receipt and noted that my total was about $150. That number seemed high and they informed me that it included tax and tip. I informed the front desk at check out that I did not write in a tip for breakfast. She went to check the bill and came back to tell me that I wrote in a $15 tip and it was in my handwriting. I told her there was no way (this was just an hour before) and someone in the restaurant must have written a tip in as I intentionally left no tip since it was a buffet and I wasn’t served. She essentially called me a liar saying that her “staff would not do that.” She removed the tip but was so incredibly rude to me. This experience left me with such an awful taste in my mouth. One could argue that I should have tipped but that misses the point that I didn’t but someone attempted to take a tip anyway. I will never set foot in that Hilton again.

The hotel is in a great location, especially for people who want to go to games at Staples Center. However, it is hard to stomach paying close to $60 per day for parking at the hotel. Also, hotel staff did not share any self parking options near the hotel as an alternative.

Stopped here for a few nights pre cruise. Lovely hotel with wonderful staff breakfast is a bit expensive but worth the money. However, for a Hilton and the standard of rooms which are lovely there is no Wi-Fi which we found absolutely amazing unless you joined a Hilton club which when you're only stopping a few nights seemed pointless. There are however plenty of bars and restaurants around which make it very easy to access Wi-Fi at any point There is a no. 600 free bus which goes to the outlet malls - bus stop 25 metres left of hotelentrance. Enjoyed the location but a bit far from Beverly Hills or Hollywood however there is a metro stop on 7th which makes a 15 minute trip to Hollywood and is very cheap

I believe that you are correct about the valet. I didn’t have time to look for any public parking and parking on the street was non existent due to construction. I am told that downtown is safer than it has been but like any big city you have to be aware of your surroundings.
