This is the only place to stay if you're visiting Universal City and Hollywood and make sure you get the Executive rooms as the lounge with breakfast and afternoon snacks is great. Everything about this hotel is good - food/room/pool/bar/parking etc. We ate at the bar on two nights and it was great and very reasonable with excellent service. Buses... More

This is a great hotel if going to Universal and sight seeing in nearby areas. The valet parking is reasonable and just fantastic. The welcoming staff were lovely. There is a shuttle bus to and from Universal City Walk. Our bags took a little longer to follow us up to our room, but that was it. Other than that the... More

An excellent hotel especially for visiting universal studios. Great interior to hotel, very nice rooms with very interesting views of LA including lots of mansions on the hills. Attentive staff and excellent breakfast. Nice pool. Takes two minutes to walk to universal and city walk. There's lots of resturants to choose from at city walk. Can't think what its called... More

Great hotel. Perfect location for Universal studios - five minute walk. Room was huge. Very clean and the bed linen is lovely. Welcome basket of fruit, water, cheese and biscuits was indeed very welcome. We were on the Executive Floor and the continental breakfast and hor d'oeuvres were a real bonus. We ate at Cafe Sierra twice during our stay... More

Can't argue with the location (short walk to Universal Studios, short drive to Hollywood and downtown), or the room which was massive and comfortable with a great bathroom. Price for room was pretty good and they were able to extend our stay by a day (you will need time to explore LA). Only downside were the exorbitant charges for even... More

This is definitely the place to stay at Universal City... as opposed to the Sheraton. We arrived late and left early, so I didn't really see much of the hotel. There is a $17 self-parking charge for the garage, as with many places. A couple of snafus during my stay: The remote control for the TV didn't work... maybe the... More

LA was the last stop on our holiday and we stayed for 5 nights at the Universal Hilton. I do not have a bad word to say about this hotel. Easy to find - follow Universal signs from freeway and then hotels (Sheraton and Hilton) are signed. Self parking was never a problem - plenty of space. Straight into elevator... More

The closest hotel to Universal Studios, Hollywood, lives up to the hype. The Hilton is only steps away from the main gate, and we got our tickets to U.S.H. thru a package we bought on the Hilton website, Check-in was quick, and we had a room ready although we arrived at 10:30AM. Went directly to the park. When we came... More
