Located in Burbank, CA, it is ideal for visiting the sights in Los Angeles. Warner Brothers Studio is located within walking distance; downtown Burbank is just a few minutes away with restaurants, boutiques, and a yogurt bar for children. Universal Studios, Hollywood, the Observatory, the Getty Museum, UCLA, and many other interests are short driving distances away. The Hotel is... More

This hotel is located in a good area, however, if they think that because celebrities stay the, it means that average is OK, then they need to learn a few things form the hoteliers in Asia. Rooms are nice and have necessary amenities, but in today's environment the internet connection and speed is menial at best, it should not matter... More

I stay here fairly often for business and have now made it a habit of staying during personal trips as well. Lovely hotel, big modern rooms, comfortable beds, and a great bar! Super location near studios and great restaurants.

The Amarano, formerly the Graciela, has been my go to hotel in the LA area since it opened. It is a small boutique hotel with an excellent small restaurant on site and the most comfortable rooms. Beds are divine. The "Library" which is off the front lobby is connected to the bar and you can relax, read, chat and enjoy... More

The Hotel Amarano was a lovely place to relax during a quick turn around trip visiting family. The rooms are well put together and peaceful. The balcony view of the pool area I had made for a wonderful place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. The bed was so... More

Found Hotel Amarano as it was very close to our destination, Universal Studios,Hollywood. The hotel has high end amenities - good room size, large flat screen, kitchenette, free wifi, robes, iron, honor bar, pool, spa, cabana, fitness center, valet parking, lounge and restaurant. However, these amenities do come with a cost - $366 for a one night stay on a... More

I booked 5 hotel rooms here for a cast and crew that I was managing in Los Angeles. Not only did the hotel allow us to film in the rooms, but they were very prompt in turning around the necessary paperwork to make it happen!

I absolutely agree with everything others have said on the positive side about this hotel. Our daughter lives in Hollywood and this is a great place to stay that is reasonably close to where she lives. The employees of the hotel were very friendly and helpful. On the negative, even though these points are truly minor, the maid service omitted... More

My first stay at Amarno, and I was very impressed. The staff was most friendly and helpful. My room on the 4th floor was very quiet, comfortable and clean. The pool area is beautiful. Would definitely stay again if I were in the Burbank area.
