Convenient downtown location
Few on-site amenities
If you want basic luxury with no frills and no fuss, then travelers would recommend this downtown Los Angeles hotel, which dates back to the 1920s. But if you're looking for special treatment and lodging that exceeds expectations, this should not be your first choice. Guests say the 193 guest rooms are standard and comfortable – if a little small – and contain 42-inch flat-screen TVs, queen or double beds and coffee makers. It's this hotel's location that impresses; you will find that the Hilton Checkers Los Angeles offers convenient access to the STAPLES Center and the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Plus, members of the Hilton Honors loyalty program can enjoy extra perks here.

Critic Reviews

Los Angeles Times


A European-style boutique hotel aimed mostly at business travelers, Checkers has 188 rooms and a snug spot next to the Central Library.


It has luxurious rooms and a rooftop deck with killer views. The tasteful, private atmosphere and modern appointments compensate for smallish rooms.



Opened as the Mayflower Hotel in 1927, Checkers retains much of its original character, such as its charming period details, but it also has contemporary luxuries like pillow-top mattresses, coffeemakers, 24-hour room service, and plasma TVs.
