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.

Needed a break for the weekend, booked a two-night stay here using points. It was insanely hot in LA during the visit. The hotel was calm and had very good air-conditioning. Very few guests visible during my stay. All wore masks and respected the space. It's a downtown hotel but being in Little Tokyo, the area was clean and some restaurants were open with outside seating. Room looks to have been refreshed, the furnishings looked new and beds very comfortable. The bathroom is tiny and the tub and shower weren't so great. Overall though had a very comfortable stay. Self-parking for two nights was $83. About the same as most LA hotels. I would definitely return when in the downtown area. Read less

The hotel did a good job of making me feel like it was virus safe. The room had a seal on it after it was cleaned to ensure no one else entered. The hotel personnel were wearing masks and the front door was open. I did wipe down all the knobs and switches in the room anyway. There were no amenities due to the virus. I thought they could at… Read more
The hotel did a good job of making me feel like it was virus safe. The room had a seal on it after it was cleaned to ensure no one else entered. The hotel personnel were wearing masks and the front door was open. I did wipe down all the knobs and switches in the room anyway. There were no amenities due to the virus. I thought they could at least provide room service, but it does not seem that hotels are doing that. I was in room 825 thinking I would be far enough away from Los Angeles Rd, but I could still hear noise. It did not keep me awake though. It was easy to get in and out of the parking lot, but you pay $40/day. My only complaint was I soaked my leg that evening and the water was nice and hot. The next morning when I went to shower, the water was barely warm. Read less

We stayed here one night for a visit to the USC Keck Hospital. Stayed here on a Hilton Honors points stay. The room was clean and I found the bed comfortable. WIFI worked well. This is a very loud and busy area of Downtown LA. Sirens going off several times each hour. Self-parking available and it is NOT free. There was no food service at… Read more
We stayed here one night for a visit to the USC Keck Hospital. Stayed here on a Hilton Honors points stay. The room was clean and I found the bed comfortable. WIFI worked well. This is a very loud and busy area of Downtown LA. Sirens going off several times each hour. Self-parking available and it is NOT free. There was no food service at this time due to covid, so no breakfast and no room service available. We found the customer service was not very welcoming or accommodating. We were not recognized as Diamond members (or it didn't matter) no Doubletree cookie (probably also due to COVID) Life is a lot more difficult these days and it showed. Read less

In the heart of Downtown L.A., this was a nice hotel to stay in. Of course, there is a lot of hustle and bustle with sirens blaring constantly and somebody had been setting off fireworks at night. The bed could have been more comfortable - it was soft and spongy and not a firm bed to support your back. With Covid-19 rampant, restaurants are… Read more
In the heart of Downtown L.A., this was a nice hotel to stay in. Of course, there is a lot of hustle and bustle with sirens blaring constantly and somebody had been setting off fireworks at night. The bed could have been more comfortable - it was soft and spongy and not a firm bed to support your back. With Covid-19 rampant, restaurants are shutdown and so the easiest way to go for food is pizza delivery. Front desk staff guy was excellent. Self parking is $38. Valet is not happening due to the virus. Read less

We came here to stay as we were heading to the Staples Center to watch KISS. Even though it was about a 50 minute walk away, it was only 10 minutes in a cab. I thought the staff were great, the location was brilliant and the hotel itself was nice for what we needed. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you guys.
