Great location close to Universal Studios theme park. Very nice and helpful staff and very accommodating. We enjoyed our stay.

Shower drain clogged every time used. AC not working properly

Awesome stay at Hilton. Comfortable beds and great bathroom.

Clean facilities, great sized room but a little overpriced

Nice hotel. great staff. Great location for Hollywood tours.

Nice shuttle to CityWalk, but still close enough to walk if you don't want to wait. We went to the bar for Happy Hour, which was really good. Check-in was really easy, so was check-out. Parking was really easy. Great room.

Very nice and right accross from universal studios.

The only thing that bugged us was that although our rooms were cared for each day, they didn’t replace our glassware daily we were left with dirty ones which by day 3 were smelly. We were also given 2 bottles of water the first day but never again, for the cost of the room I expected a little more in the everyday details.

Very nice hotel within walking distance to Universal studios.

This is my second stay at this property and it does not disappoint. From the valet, bell hop, check-in clerk, room service, housekeeper, etc., all of the staff were AMAZING! I can't express how much it adds value to the overall vacation experience and fun of being at Universal Studios. Thank you!!

Loved our stay! Beautiful place, awesome bed!! Loved area in bathroom with giant vanity lights to get ready for the day. Only missing the light up magnifying mirror. With the baby boomers getting up there with changing eyesite, the magnifying mirror would be a great addition. Breakfast in restaurant was fresh and delicious,too!!

Helpful and friendly staff. Convenient to Universal.

The hotel was not ready for cold weather in Los Angeles area. The temps drops to 40's in the night during the 2nd night we were there and the room central AC did not work. The portable heater they provided was noisy. They did not fix the heat in the room till the 4th day. Bad manager, bad staff.

Easy to find. Daily parking rate, in and out privileges. Best thing to do is to simply park your car and take the shuttle to Universal Studios them park or Citiwalk. Shuttles are 15 mins apart from 9am-9pm. Staff are courteous and professional. Parts of the hotel give away its age. Carpeting in room can use some TLC. Overall, a pleasant experience.

This was my wife and I, 1st trip to Universal City. We pick the hotel that was closest to the park. We were going to the park during the off season.The hours of the park were shorten. Self parking was easy.The staff was great and very friendly. Walking from the Hotel was little up a hill but nothing bad. We were every disappointed they didn't a spa and they did offer if we want to go to the hotel spa next door. But we did not want to walk in the cold from one hotel to the other one. The bed was very hard. The view from the 5th floor was a AC unit. For the amount of money spent on the room. We think we should of got a little more for money.

Not worth the price... room was old smelled like mold. There no microwave if you want to have one in your room it’s an a $100 deposit and $10 a day. Parking too expensive and to top it off swimming pool was closed for renevations so you had to walk to Sheraton hotel and use their pool which was dirty. Don’t order room service food was horrible and very expensive!

Great and helpful staff. Me and my sixteenth Year Dauther had a great experience. Very convenience and very clean place.

Linda, the receptionist should not be place in the front desk. Not friendly nor approaxhable to Asian.
