Traditional Sheraton hotel, relatively modern and well maintained. The bar can bump on a weekend night. Excellent location and epicenter for awesome stuff to do. Pretty sweet pool area with lounging area. Very nice.

The hotel staff were friendly. Located near universal studios with shuttles provided by the hour. Concierge assisted us going to disneyland and booking a tour for us. Overall, we got our money's worth.

Stayed two nights at end of our California trip. On checkin our rooms were not connecting as requested however the desk clerk was able to find two connecting rooms on a high floor quickly. Glass of wine for mom and dad and cookies for the kids are always a nice touch. Easy to reach from the 101 freeway. We walked... More

My granny and I stayed here during our stay in LA. All of the front staff were super helpful and friendly. Our room was very clean, which is always key. There is a free shuttle bus to Universal Studios, which was super helpful. This hotel is also about a 5-10 minute walk to the Subway (or whatever it's called). There... More

I did the cruel thing of booking this hotel via a third party site where you don't pick the hotel and then brought my family and the kids realized it is located right next to Universal Studios. It was kind of torture for them but we were in L.A. for other reasons and we did not go (boo dad!). It... More

We choose this hotel due to it being easily accessible to Universal Studios and Hollywood. If you wish to go to the studios there is a free shuttle bus but make sure that you arrive at the stop to get back on the last shuttle 11pm, well in time or you may be left behind and then you will have...

We really liked the pool and outside bar area. The service we received in the afternoon there, was nice. We had scheduled to spend the night at this hotel after seeing a show at the Music Center. We arrived back at the hotel at about 5 minutes after 11pm to find out they had no late night menu. We were... More

As many of the reviewers have pointed out, the rooms are in places worn but the beds are extremely comfortable, the rooms are immaculately clean and the location is perfect if you are visiting Universal. We bought an annual pass and only intended to spend one day in the Park. However, due to the proximity of the hotel we were... More
