We stayed here for a week before travelling onto San Diego for a week.We had a Lanai poolside room,with balcony which was great.From reading other reviews,I think they're the better rooms.Having somewhere to hang&dry wet swimwear was handy.The staff were all friendly&helpful,we requested a fridge which was sent up as soon as one was available (within a couple of hrs)
Lovely seating area around the bar area/reception where you can pick up the wifi or just sit&read.
The beds were comfy,the pillows were wonderful,Im going to have to try to find out where they come from! I know its a bit sad but I slept so well on them!
We walked to City Walk every night,up in the lift, across The Hilton's patio (quick look in the pond for the turtles!) and round the corner&you're there,for dinner and entertainment.
Theres enough different eateries for somewhere different every night.Also walked to Universal studios,which was good.
Wish we'd perhaps tried the metro to get to places,did find driving in L.A pretty hairy!
We only ate in the restaurant once&found it to be very expensive $80 for4 for breakfast(inc 2 children prices!) I get the impression perhaps a lot of guests are on business trips& are able to put stuff down as expenses.
Also,the room was very hot,the air con' didnt seem very powerful but as we had a balcony we were able to leave the patio door open.At the end of our stay we found a fan in the wardrobe,which would've helped.
Quite often there were functions on the patio,in the evening,which might be a bit noisy if you had little ones but they always ended around 10.30 so we never found them a problem,i quite liked watching all the smart people,dressed up!
The pool area was nice,with complimentary towels and comfy furniture.The poolside bar staff were very friendly.
One day when we arrived back,Matthew Perry was filming his new show here,which was exciting!
We loved it here&really felt we'd landed on our feet,would certainly recommend and would love to stay again,should we ever come back to L.A.
