San Diego

Unbelievable Experience. Nicest staff-- was greeted with a free dessert and extra waters

Local from Los Angeles

Came here with the travelzoo deal (which was one of the most stellar deals out there.. $39 for a 3 course dinner for two!) Some things I really dig about this place, and some things I did not:

+ Rock shrimp & saffron risotto: majorly delicious. big pieces of shrimp, good texture on the risotto, and flavor was really good overall
+ Duck breast on duck confit risotto: yes, risotto part duex. I really liked the duck on duck play, and the duck breast was cooked well too.
- $35 corkage fee... way high!
- Parking: pain in the butt in for the area and the valet was a little bit expensive for just dinner
* Food overall is 'good' but not really worth that retail value they charge. At the price we got it for though, that was a wonderful meal at that price. Can't beat that.

San Francisco

This is a short-stay, business hotel. I can't really imagine it any other way. A bit stuffy, a bit classy, and a bit sterile-- I guess I'm not their target demographic. Hey, that's cool; I'm sure they'd agree.

As usual the Hilton offers standard elegance. There's a bar in the lobby with an adjoining outdoor patio space, which would be great for a cool drink on a warm day in LA. The rooftop pool and gym are a little small, which I would expect of San Francisco, but not of Los Angeles-- clearly neither of these things is the Hilton's focus.

Where this Hilton location excels is their dedication to elegance. Rather than going the easy route of a modern, IKEA look, the Hilton sticks to what it knows and keeps it decadent: marble floors, gold-plating, and pressed sheets.

The pay-to-play wifi is a bit of a turn off, but I suppose their typical business-person clientele probably doesn't mind.

Definitely no complaints with the friendly and attentive staff. The valet, in particular, was an absolute pleasure to meet.

Local from Los Angeles

The Hilton Checkers was exactly what I expected. Comfortable, basic and cheaper than other places around, just what I needed for a weekend in LA. I was a bit unhappy with the lack of parking and having to pay for valet every time, and with the wifi fee. But otherwise, I enjoyed laying out on their nice pool deck and having a drink with friends at their patio bar. The hotel is close to the LA Live entertainment complex, which I appreciated as Staples Center and the ESPN Zone were on my to-do list. I probably would not stay here again because of the parking issue, but no gripes with the hotel and the professional and attentive staff.

New York City

A good business hotel with great city views. The standard room is elegant, relatively outdated, but comfortable. The rooftop pool/area offers especially beautiful city views. Service was friendly and efficient. The location is most excellent for business travelers and/or performances’ guests. Do explore: visit the Walt Disney Concert Hall & the Union Station to admire their stunning contrasting architectures.
