Located near Universal Studios, this hotel was the perfect place to stay. We stayed on the 22nd floor and got the awesome view of the city. The lobby was beautifully decorated, very elegant. It was busy the day we went due to some conference going on, and the lobby was packed. The wait to the elevator was longer, but we... More

We had a lovely stay at the Hilton Universal City recently and would definitley go back. The rooms are a good size and give a nice view over Los Angeles. They were very clean with very soft beds and large screen TV's. The location is brilliant and only a five minute walk to Universal Studios and City Walk. There really... More

We stayed here for 3 nights after a week in Orange and before 4 days in Vegas and were really please with our stay. The rooms were clean and comfy with great views but the main plus was the location. 5 mins walk to Universal and Universal city walk or there is a free shuttle bus and a 5 min... More

The only great thing about this hotel was the close proximity to Universal Studios and subway. It was nice to be within walking distance to it. We were able to walk to the park and the City Walk for lunch and dinner. Also, it was a quick walk down the hill to the subway train. We were able to quickly... More

We holidayed in LA late July/early August and used the Hilton as our first stop to orientate ourselves. The hotel is clean and tidy and staff are pleasant and helpful. The hotel is 10minutes walk from the Universal theme park and City Walk and a free shuttle bus runs every 15minutes or so. Breakfast for the 4 of us (2... More

If your looking for a 5 star hotel with all the bells and whistles - this is the place for you. This was the third Hilton we stayed at during our West coast swing. We stayed in an upgraded Alcove room, and I must say that it was average. Nothing wrong - nothing special, just average. Trams to Universal Studios/City... More

This hotel is a great choice even for visiting tourist attractions beyond Universal Studios. It is only a 10-15 minute drive to Hollywood Blvd or Griffen Park, and we drove all over L.A. while staying there for 5 days. You can walk to the Universal Park or City Walk (lots of restaurants, Boca Del Beppo is the best!) in about... More

Major problem with the elevators- it took me 20' to "escape" (that's what it felt like!) from my room to the lobby, this morning, and every trip from the 24th floor took at least ten minutes. management openly acknowledges the problem with signs and notices in the rooms. They are renovating the elevator system. The staff is quite apologetic. I... More

We stayed 4 nights with two rooms. From the pre arrival emails through to departure the staff were super courteous, sincere and helpful. Great location, nice hotel and pool area,and as we say perfect hosts. The lifts were a little slow, but this really was no big deal. Certainly recommend.

Spending 90+ days at the Universal Hilton this year, I can highly recommend this hotel. Bar none, this is the friendliest staff ever assembled. I will be returning next year for a similar stay, and already look forward to that occasion.
