Stayed for four nights with ( two rooms) wife, daughter and mom and was very pleased. Upscale, quiet and clean. Great service and uber great location. Seven minute access to Universal Studios as well as connecting highways elsewhere. Nice shops and grocery store in strip mall across the street. Pool is small but has two cabanas to rent besides free... More

The Amarano has always been my favorite hotel in LA. For Hollywood and Valley business, Burbank is a great location and that small hotel is ideal. And now it has a restaurant. Room service was always good there and you could have it at night at the bar. But you had to move out to have a meal with guests.... More

We decided to stop in to the bar for a starter before we went out to dinner. My husband has been telling me for years that we needed to go for the "glacier style" martini's. We arrived just before it started to get busy and were greeted by Harvey, our bartender. What a nice man, and we were lucky enough... More

If you're visiting Burbank, Hollywood, or any of the local Studios, here's the place to stay. Its convenient, friendly, small, quaint, elegant, and very inviting. This was our third visit and we're already booked again for a stay in two months. After staying here the question will always be... "Why stay anywhere else?

Everything was excellent about my stay except the price. I don't get out much, so maybe the price was good. The staff was great. The room was great. Check in was quick and easy even though we got in late. The in house bar was convenient. A good time was had by all. Cheers

We looked forward to booking into this hotel after a long drive from Yosemite but when we got to the hotel they proceeded to give us the worst room. This seems to be standard practice for hotels as they try to fob off the worst rooms to people they think wont complain. What is not standard practice is for the... More

We were very disappointed after our stay at this hotel. From check in to check out our experience was poor. We waited for over an hour after regular check in time for our room to be ready and when we were finally given the keys to the room, there were still housekeepers in the room when we arrived.

GOOD: The Amarano is a really classy hotel with an elegant bar/restaurant/lobby. My basic King had plenty of space and a fridge, microwave, cook-top, and disposal. The room prices are low for the category, and the hotel had many young people. The pool is attractive. 24 hour room service. NOT SO GOOD: The walls are very thin. The party in... More

Spent one night to work in area. Hotel was trendy, clean and convenient. All staff very professional. Over night parking rate seemed excessive to me for $33 based on the fact almost everyone must have a car who stays there. The room rates are high for a " Marriott Courtyard" style hotel with better interiors and finishes. So why gauge... More
