Laguna Beach, California
Reviewed 15 July 2015

By far one of the best hotels in Los Angeles. Great location, outstanding service, excellent restaurant. Easy to find and close to the freeways. Nice pool and great lobby bar. The perfect boutique hotel for a quiet getaway or business travel.

The title of your review has us blushing! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We do want to point out for other travelers, however, that we no longer offer a pool at our hotel. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you on your next trip to Los Angeles.

We stayed at the Hilton Checkers for one night on our way to San Diego. The hotel staff was friendly and efficient. We had a corner room which was elegantly furnished and very clean. The room was also very quiet. This hotel was very upscale and elegant and in a nice location. We would definitely stay here again.

It's a nice hotel. The rooms are pretty small. The restrooms are extremely tiny and the door doesn't shut completely. The view is nice. The hotel is located in the heart of Downtown LA. Everything is so close to it. Parking is a bit of hassle.

Nice Downtown LA accommodations within walking distance to many locations necessary for business and entertainment. Would stay there again for future meetings in the area. Price was okay - would expected rates at that level in the area.

Reviewed 12 July 2015

Overall, nice "boutique" hotel in the downtown financial district. Do not expect to be near too much bar/restaurant action during the weekend as many businesses are closed. Nice "central location" for a drive to the beaches and other parts of the city. Parking is expensive at the hotel, I would recommend parking at the Pershing Square parking garage ($16/night instead...

Stayed this week while catching a Dodgers game. As other reviews stated, the breakfast was a bad experience and it cost $12 per person to get a simple breakfast and a coffee WITH vouchers for breakfast. The food was fine and not an outrageous price, but at any other property as a Diamond member, I would have had better food...

Price okay but past its glory days. The check in and check out was quick so that is a plus. Location was convenient and staff is friendly. I am in my fifties and this was for work so okay. Not really the type of hotel for the youngsters and hipster.

Generally speaking this hotel does a good job being a business hotel. Hilton now gives its members free wifi so register before booking and you're set. The e-check-in is nice and allows you to select your room or get upgrades. I had a king standard room and it was not overly roomy but good enough. The bathroom is also a...
