DoubleTree Hilton Hotel Downtown Los Angeles
Nestled in the Little Tokyo section of Los Angeles, California, this hotel is an exotic retreat that takes travellers on a Japanese themed adventure. Well located nearby attractions such as the Los Angeles Convention Centre, Dodger Stadium, Bunker Hill and the Staples Centre.
On arrival, we got checked in very quickly and the desk staff were friendly and attentive to all our needs, they even received an Amazon parcel for us before arrival. The lobby itself was very clean and spacious and the Japanese theme really shone through. As with most DoubleTree Hiltons the lobby has that tasty aroma of freshly baked cookies, which you can treat yourself to.
We were only staying for 2 nights as we were coming back from Las Vegas so we opted for the Standard king room, although we got a larger room with two king beds.
Also in the room were complimentary bottles of water and as you guessed it- more cookies. In our room, there was also the standard amenities of a safe, docking station, Flat screen, coffee/tea facilities, Air/con and toiletries. The internet was very fast if your A HHonors Member for the ‘premium internet’. The Standard internet was bearable and was more than enough to check emails and have a scroll through Facebook.
The view from our room was pleasant and overlooked the busing streets of Downtown LA. The area itself is well located to many attractions but there is a strong presence of homelessness if you go a walk, although this doesn’t bother us as we mainly use UBER to get around so not much walking was done. The best bet is to ask reception the best route if you walking by foot more than a couple of blocks or use their complimentary 3-mile radius shuttle service. Another issue with the area also seemed to be the noise at night with cars, trucks and the never ending police sirens even on a very high floor, thankfully we are quite heavy sleepers.
One of our favourite things about this hotel is the peaceful rooftop Kyoto Garden that offers skyline views of the city and really is a unique place in Los Angeles.
The hotel also offers a really impressive array of refreshments whether it be the Starbucks next door, the hotel restaurant which you can also take out, the brilliant breakfast buffet options or the lobby shop.
The hotel also had one of the best room service options we have seen with 5-star food brought straight to your room just in case you’ve had a long day and don’t want to trek to one of the many options for food.
The Downtown DoubleTree Hilton Hotel is a great affordable hotel in Downtown Los Angeles with very friendly staff and a great list of facilities so overall we give it our Economy Plus rating. The reason we didn't rate it higher is due to the noise and the surrounding area than can put you off.
