Lovely hotel downtown LA

This was a smallish (compared to typical hiltons), lovely, historic hotel right in the middle of fun, walkable neighborhood). Front desk staff, Joanie, was especially welcoming & helpful. Service was great & staff was friendly & professional. Our room had a great view. The rooftop terrace with whirlpool was beautiful. This will be our go-to hotel from now on!

In the middle of it al

Pros: Staff
Cons: restaurant. It was a very limited menu. We chose to leave the building and eat somewhere else..
Location: downtown, It is close to everything.
We stayed 2 nights and were headed to the Rose Parade and Bowl Game. Staff was friendly and helpful. Valet service was great, a bit expensive but good. Hotel is old but well kept. We walked to the sixth street bar one night and had the best hamburgers ever! Not far from freeways etc.

Hilton Checkers Downtown

No fridge in standard suite, parking too expensive on weekend, NO Free internet access!!, overall cleanliness was ok, but not great. Hot tub and pool were really nice on 13th floor. Front Desk personnel were very helpful. Vallet parking staff was quick to get your car.

Hilton Checkers San Fransiscco- Overbooks!!!

I booked and received confirmation through the travel website for 1 night, March 29,2008 at the San Fransisco Hilton Checkers Hotel. Upon my arrival and check-in, I was informed by the Checkers Hilton staff that the Checkers Hilton had overbooked that night. I was then told my reservation would be honored at another hotel some distance away. No explanation was given for the overbooking excuse. I booked the Checkers Hilton to be within walking distance from an event we were attending that night and a second event the next morning.. I now had to pay cab fare to the events and back to the hotel for events that was supposed to be a short walk away. I find this to be totally unacceptable behavior for a major hotel chain. When I tried to explain to the desk clerk that the second hotel had a less expensive room rate, I was told that the room at the second hotel was paid for, but no refund was offered.

yeah-baby

For our honeymoon, we reserved a suite for only one night with plans to stay at the Peninsula for the remainder of our stay. We loved it so much, that we canceled our reservation at ""the other hotel."" Yeah-baby...can't wait for our 2nd honeymoon!

Not bad

I chose this hotel because it is in downtown LA where I was gonig to be at the end of a day of business meetings. I read the reviews and though they weren't sparkling, they weren't bad. It's safe, clean, has a restaurant/bar. Not great rooms but not horrible. Nothing fancy and not badly priced.
