DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown

Los Angeles, USA

The hotel

Anywhere that greets you with freshly cooked chocolate chip cookies on arrival gets our vote! Modern in style with a relaxed ambience, this is ideal for those wanting to be within easy distance of all downtown attractions. Towering 21 stories above the city, there’s some great views to be had as well as plenty of home-from-home comforts. Eats and drinks can be found close by but don’t forget to try the hotel’s own Justice Urban Tavern, a gastro pub serving Asian-inspired Californian cuisine. Rendezvous Lounge is another fine place to relax with five flat screen TVs and a full bar. Happy hour is 4:00pm-7:00pm daily so why not indulge in a cocktail or two? Last but by no means least, we want to mention the half-acre Kyoto Gardens on the third floor terrace – boasting waterfalls, ponds and a skyline view of the city, it really does offer that all-important Zen experience.

Where do i start, the room was terrible, outdated, falling apart, lights not working, not clean around table between beds, now the bathroom trapped water in the sink and bath when using, the plugs were self dropping so you could not stop them, the list continues...

We love going to the Little Tokyo courtyard with shops and restaurants right next door to the hotel. We enjoyed the Japanese garden as well. The lobby bar had a nice selection of Japanese beer and cocktails and a delicious charcuterie board.

Family of 4 stayed at this hotel during the labor day weekend 2019. I chose this hotel based on my past experience with this brand. While the hotel was ok, I feel some improvements could be great. Furniture in the room seems old and could be updated. Hotel does not have a pool, which was sad for my children as they couldn't go swimming, but that was my fault for not paying attention on this when booking. We ate at the hotel restaurant for breakfast, this was a great experience, all staff were nice and food was good. The location of the hotel was not bad, but it almost felt away from everything. Beds were good as we had a good night rest, however, the room felt really small for 2 queen beds and the restroom was small too. At night, the ambulance going through was pretty loud and we were in the 18th floor, so I don't know how that was possible. Overall, it was a good stayed. I was a bit disappointed as per my past experience with Hilton hotels have always been great and this time was not so great. But it was not all that bad. Read less

We checked in on a Saturday for a two night stay. Lobby is dark. We are Hilton Gold and asked for an upgrade. Told none available. Asked for quiet room away from elevator. Our room was down the hall, quiet and probably one of the smallest according to the hotel map on door. Bed was too soft. Towels too thin. But the kicker...when we arrived back… Read more
We checked in on a Saturday for a two night stay. Lobby is dark. We are Hilton Gold and asked for an upgrade. Told none available. Asked for quiet room away from elevator. Our room was down the hall, quiet and probably one of the smallest according to the hotel map on door. Bed was too soft. Towels too thin. But the kicker...when we arrived back at 3:15 pm on Sunday, the room had not been cleaned. Called down and manager called back promptly. He told me that on the weekends they have up to 5 pm to clean the rooms. And if we had wanted our room clean before that we should have told the front desk. HELLO...HOW WOULD WE KNOW TO ASK FOR A CLEAN ROOM BEFORE 5????? I have to say he was not very understanding. I tried to tell him that guests should be notified upon check in,that is the policy. One pro: the breakfast buffet is very good. Read less

The authentic, giant rooftop Japanese garden with waterfall was designed by Japanese masters flown in by the five star New Otani chain when they built this hotel in the early 1980s.

The authentic, giant rooftop Japanese garden with waterfall was designed by Japanese masters flown in by the five star New Otani chain when they built this hotel in the early 1980s. Japanese Village Plaza (built by Korean American developer David Hyun) had turned around an American slum, luring in MOCA museum and New Otani. Service was magnificent, the restaurant overlooking the waterfall garden a magnet for business meetings. But the hotel was non Union, Japanese style. The union picketed, finally busted them, service declined, skid row spread, the New Otani sold out. What a pity. Read less
