Don’t bother staying here
Terrible hotel it is basically a construction site dirty carpets fighting guests very disappointed with my stay also bar that was pictured on did not exist I think hotel was falsely represented to look better than it was 2 stars imo

Hilton Checkers, Los Angeles, United States of America
Ok, but a Overpriced for what you get.
Booked for free wifi, but on check in they said we needed to pay for it. Building is undergoing a little refurbishment but its ok. Restaurant is very expensive, its better to dine at a local restaurant down the road. Great location. No robe, kettle or toaster provided. Room was good, bed comfy and all was clean.

Not impressed!!!
We stayed here for our anniversary and I was disappointed. It didn’t seem busy at all and yet we were set up right by the elevators which was noisy. The room was small and could use some general maintenance. For example the pocket door to the bathroom was difficult to slide and made SO MUCH noise when we used it.

Nice, clean, quiet, place to stay in downtown LA
Nice clean comfy room in downtown LA. My only real complaint is that wi-fi is expensive. Wi-fi should be complimentary by now in 2019.
