We were on the 15th floor and the view was of Universal Studios which was a very pleasant surprise. The room was very spacious and clean and the air con was good , especially after staying in a few hotels... More

We chose this hotel as it was closest to Universal Studios - so were pleasantly surprised when everything about the hotel exceeded our expectations. Our room was great, as were all the staff right from the front desk to the maids who were both very efficient but also happy and genuinely welcoming. We also had some room service when we... More

We were very comfortable here. Excellent setting, very nice staff and exceptional service. Genuinely, the staff were just the friendliest hotel staff I'd ever met. Very much recommend! And just a 5 minute walk to Universal Studios!

Stayed April 2014, 9th Floor. King room had excellent view of Universal City Walk. The day of my arrival, I was able to enjoy sites at Universal from my room that included a small sprinkle of fireworks and a show that set someone on fire. The room itself was spacious. Bed was comfy. Room had a fridge. Bathroom was a... More

It was booked simply for its location to Universal Studios but Ill be staying there every time I visit LA from now on. Im a long time Sheraton member but after staying here and... More

Loved the location as you can walk within 10 minutes to the City Walk or a shuttle from door to door. Concierge service was great as where the cocktail waitresses in the lounge. Service in the restaurant was also wonderful. Would definitely stay here again.!

We chose this hotel because it's walking distance to Universal Studio because we decided not to rent a car as we're only here for 2 days prior to our cruise. I paid extra for a "quiet room". It was away from the elevator but they gave us a room facing the expressway. And the air conditioning is a bit loud... More

To be honest, my experiences with Hilton properties in the past have been plagued with problems. Whether it be billing issues, second rate housekeeping, property condition or hornet/wasp infestation, I never stayed in a Hilton property I would ever consider staying at a second time...until now. The Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City is a first rate hotel in every way and... More

I stayed in this hotel from 4-8 to 4-11 with my wife and two boys 14,12. First of all, everyone at the hotel was super friendly. I loved the location to Universal Studios. It was about a 5-10 minute walk from our hotel to the park. We also enjoyed relaxing at the hotel and then would walk to Citywalk for... More

First rate hotel experience. Rooms are fantastic and the staff very professional and courteous. Great place to stay in the heart of Hollywood. Easy access to freeways leading to the SF Valley or L.A. I recommend it highly.
