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.

We recently visited our son & daughter-in-law in L.A. We searched for the closest hotel near to their home. As Hilton Honors Diamond members - we were delighted to find a conveniently located hotel. It was only 10 minutes away. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They even accommodated our early checkin as we had flown in from a 6am flight from Indy. That’s the most positive parts of our stay. Unfortunately- I can only encourage you should you choose to accept this mission of staying at this hotel to disavow any knowledge of the expectations of a 5 Star Hotel. Sadly Downtown is not what it was even a few months ago. The homeless crisis is creeping into every part of the area. It’s difficult to feel safe or comfortable when you see a woman lying on a bench a block from hotel with needle in her arm. Or a partially clad homeless man urinating in public. Be careful. Be aware. I give kudos to staff of hotel attempting to maintain some level of quality accommodations when the surrounding area has declined. We did share some serious concerns regarding the outdated accommodations with management. We are happy to report they made appropriate adjustments to our bill to reflect the unfortunate challenges we had faced. If you are thinking of staying in downtown LA - you might want to think again and be fully prepared for a new reality. Read less

I was a little hesitant tbh because of the reviews I read here. But it was actually a great stay. Location was good next to little Tokyo. And walking distance to the broad.

Checking in was a breeze. Front desk at check in was very helpful.

Checking in was a breeze. Front desk at check in was very helpful. We walked in to the bar & grill 3 minutes before they closed and they cheerfully allowed us to order food, and when we said we'd be happy to get it to go they offered to deliver it to our room when it was ready. Best burger I've had in a long time, but that could have been influenced by the fact that I hadn't eaten in 10 hours! Only frustration was that the electrical outlets in the lamp bases were all very loose and I had difficulty keeping my electronics charging and my CPAP machine going. My cell phone never did charge to 100%. The front desk clerk the next morning didn't seem to be surprised by the complaint or apologetic. We were in on business and our meetings were a mile from the hotel, so the location was convenient. The bellman was helpful in obtaining a cab when we left, too. It appears that the shuttle that was talked about extensively in the Q&A section is no more. Read less

Would like to mention the great service throughout our stay from Scott, one of the managers at the hotel who really made us feel welcome. Felt hotel is in need of updating. Really liked computer room facilities and was grateful to have a coffee maker in the room. Read less

I stayed here for one night on business. I'm a Hilton Honors member and try to seek out Hilton owned hotels whenever possible when traveling for work. This hotel was located near where I needed to be so it was perfect in location for me. The hotel has a bar and also a restaurant with another bar. I ate at the restaurant for dinner and the food was excellent, though not cheap. I also ate at the restaurant's breakfast buffet for breakfast. It was a good buffet with lots of choices. The buffet is not typically free, but I received it for free due to my status with Hilton. There is a Starbucks, not directly inside the hotel, but right next to it. Very handy if you desire something more than regular coffee. The rooms themselves are nice and clean. Looks like it couldn't have been too long ago that they were refurbished. Comfortable beds, free wifi, and a mini fridge in the room. I did use the hotel gym on this trip and was impressed. Lots of treadmills, ellipticals, and weights. The gym also had towels and water for use. I did not park a car, but they do have on-site garage parking for a fee. I don't think the parking fee is cheap at any of the downtown hotels. The only negative of the hotel was the outside noise. At least on the side I was located. It is near the police department so there were sirens quite often through the night and if you're a light sleeper this could be a problem. Not sure how much better this will be anywhere else downtown though. Overall I would recommend this hotel. Read less
