Family and I stayed for a few nights during the week. Hotel was very nice, we didn't have any problems. The room was well appointed, service was good, gym was modest but sufficient, pool was ok. They have a really amazing (if pricey) breakfast buffet that's worth trying. The main advantage of this hotel is its proximity to Universal Studios... More

Placed room service order and wrong food was brought. Called RS and they started someone would call us. After 15 min no phone call. We called back down and was told only 1 person was 'working' room service. The gal at he front desk had no solutions and stayed it was not her responsibility. Such a shame such poor customer... More

Stayed for 2 nights on the night before and after our trip to Universal Studio. Had looked at the Sheraton but Hilton was better reviewed and rooms were nicer., The Hilton is a little further than the Sheraton but less than a 10 minutes walk. Unable to book a room with a package but by directly booking on the Hilton... More

Myself and the family were really disappointed with this hotel. Such a disappointment after taking the time to review it on trip advisor. The hotel is located on the edges of universal estate and is on it's own. Because of this, we were a little taken a back by having to pay an additional $24 per night to park -... More

We had a lovely time at this hotel which is just round the corner from the theme park (a short walk but there is a shuttle for the evenings and hot days). The lifts were erratic when we stayed but the staff were very good at marshalling them. Room and beds were comfortable and clean. Didn't try the buffet but... More

We arrived quite early in the morning, around 9.00 am , and were very lucky to be allowed to check into our room, for a much needed nap, as we had just come from a 14 hour flight! Very close to Universal studios, which is why we had booked this particular hotel, with even a shuttle bus to take you... More

We stayed at the hotel in late August 2014. We travelled as a couple as part of a California road trip. Good points 1. Good in-room amenities. Free wifi, air conditioning, empty fridge, hairdryer, safe, iron, lots of power sockets. 2. Spacious room. 3. Friendly staff. 4. It's a 5min walk to Universal Studios. The hotel will tell you it's...

If you intend to visit Los Angeles and would like to go to the Universal theme park then this is a very convenient and relevant option. Numerous dining options are available at the City Walk which is either a 10 minute walk or there is also the option of a free bus shuttle. There are numerous options to also go... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City. It is conveniently located near Universal Studios--about a 10 minute walk. The staff was courteous and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. Only thing is we wished we could have been on a higher floor so we could have had a better view but it was our choice... More
