Tilt Hotel Universal/Hollywood, an Ascend Hotel Collection

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Dirt, claustrophobic, creepy. We left 5 mins after seeing the room and had to find a hotel at short notice.

Minutes away from Universal Studios Establishments walking distance for meals and morning coffee Friendly staff

Nice location. Big nice modern room. Very comfortable.

We saw some small roaches at night. Need coke machine on property.

When I checked into my room I opened the door to the lights on & window open & smell of cigarette smoke. I am very sensitive to the smell of smoke. We closed window & when we opened up refrigerator there was a piece of bacon. My son got into the bed & there was a piece of bacon in the bed. I then noticed something spilled next to bed. On the other side of other bed was food. I went down & talked to manager that I needed a new room & he was very rude. He said that it's not his fault if someone chose to smoke. I told him i I can't stay in a room with smoke. Also I told him how it was dirty & they didn't change sheets if a piece of bacon was in bed. He said that we already paid for that room & how was he to give me another room since he would lose money. I told him I am not paying for a dirty room. He called someone to check room who could barely speak English. The manager finally very rudely gave me a key to a new room. I asked what I should do with other key to the dirty room & he said leave it in room then he no just take to new room. This was my 3rd time staying at this hotel & with the rudeness I will never come again.

The hotel was located in an area that was within walking distance to Universal Studios which made it convenient. The staff was nice and the sleeping accommodations were comfortable.

The hotel is located close to L.A. Live. The area is OK. The hotel was going through upgrades during my stay so it wouldn't be far to write anything about it until its completed. but overall my stay there was good.

Professional front desk staff. Very clean. I really enjoyed my stay. Location is awesome!

The staff was friendly and the room was clean. Unfortunately the hotel doesnt offer breakfast anymore.

Really love the breakfast here and parking is free. We love it here

I booked the room at this hotel just for location. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They serve a complementary breakfast, and the food was adequate. The room was a lot nicer than the photos led me to believe, and was very comfortable. The room was super clean. Let me give props to the Guest Room Attendant assigned to my room, she was awesome, and did a fantastic job cleaning the room. Far exceeded my expectations. The parking was free and is limited. Some of the spaces are tight. There was a small indoor pool, I did not have time to use it, however it looked adequate. The hotel was very close to freeway exit, and entrance. Would definitely stay there again.

This staff should be putting on rivets on airplanes not attending guest services at this motel.

The clarion is undergoing some transition from its last identity as a different hotel. As a result, there was some disorganization in the lobby. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Internet is free, but slow and breakfast was better than I expected. The parking is the best part- just outside the lobby door and free. No fees, no tips- a nice change from most city hotels. I would stay there again.

Hotel was very close to Universal, right off the free way and very clean. Would have preferred to have a refrigerator but overall was a decent hotel and for the price it was worth it. Would stay there again if we go back to universal.

Room was clean with location close to Universal Studios. Free breakfast and parking. Is undergoing construction/renovation and the pool was closed off.

Hotel was still under construction and no swimming pool and free wifi was out of range on the room we we're check in and the entry door lights was not working and we have to plug in the fridge ourselves and unplug the fridge to use the microwave so it was really not that ok at all what we expecte

When we checked in there were ants all over our room, due to food being missed on floor behind curtain when room was "cleaned". Hotel was unable to move our room , but sprayed for us which delayed checking in. Entire hotel was under renovation with no mention on line at time of booking. Pictures on site NOT representative of what hotel looks like! Pool was closed with no mention on site at time of booking. Location was great! Within minutes of hollywood, walked to Universal, great breakfast!

The location was close but not close enough to walk to Universal Studios. You drive into a parking garage which was very small and parking was limited and you go into a lobby that looks like it was a dark lounge at one time.Fortunately the rooms were clean and newly decorated but for the price I wouldn't recommend this hotel.I won't stay there again!!!

Walking distance to Universal Studios, however we were advised to drive if we planned on coming back late at night. And traveling with two small children we did just that. The included breakfast was good and there was something available for all to enjoy. Staff was very friendly and pleasant. No problem parking our car in the garage area and loved that parking was included. Hotel is being updated and is looking modern and nice. For the value it's definitely a place we'd crash again when visiting Universal Studios.

Close to Universal which is where we were going. Staff was very good. A little tricky to park.
