The Tilt hotel is a very good location...close to everything, even with traffic. The Hotel is very clean and pretty quiet. We got a room in the back of the hotel, which is what I would recommend. We were on the third floor. This was not normally our style room, very modern and no carpet on floor, but bed was... More

We stayed at The Tilt Hotel for 2 nights the last week of April. The hotel was super clean with wood floors. I liked the fact that there was no carpet. The beds were comfy. Hotel was recently updated. We were very happy with the hotel considering the price we paid. You never know what you're going to get. It... More

We took our 20 year old and best friend to Universal for the weekend as a college grad gift. Price for two rooms was great. The second room never even had a door so for safety if you had little kids this would be great. The rooms were clean and quiet even tho they were under renovation at the time.... More

We wanted a hotel close to Universal and were prepared to spend a bit more on our last night in LA after a three week holiday. I was planning on the Sheraton or Hilton due to the proximity to the City Walk and the park but discovered that neither offer free wifi. A deal breaker!! The Clarion (or Tilt, according... More

Stayed there Saturday- Monday for our Universal trip & our stay was great. I was a little bummed that when I booked the room they stated free parking then when I stayed 4/11/15 I was notified they added a $10 parking fee as of April 2015. It wasn't much but I still wasn't expecting that. The room was very clean... More

This place is perfect if you are planning to go to Universal Studios. It is within walking distance, 10 minutes at the most. Others complained about it being an uphill walk, the way I look at it, it's downhill after you have been at universal all day and your tired, no big deal.The room was clean, quiet and well equipped....

The only thing good about this property is the free parking and Starbucks across the street. Upon our arrival we noted the front Clarion banner was faded and torn. The lobby is dark with low counters which has the feel of a cigar bar. Check-in was ok. Our upper floor room faced the rear which gave a nice view of... More

Web site info and pictures we're very deceiving, the pool was the size of my car and there was no breakfast of any kind offered. And unless you really really like to walk, it was not even walking distance to universal studios. Should have stayed at the Hilton. Oh well

I've stayed here several times. I like the location, just north of Hollywood. And I like the FREE PARKING, which can save you as much as $44 a night in Los Angeles. Be sure to factor that into rates you are comparing. The rooms are spacious, and the deluxe room is really spacious. Has a refrigerator, nice big t.v., and... More
