We had a great stay. The staff were great, the service wonderful. Our room had a million dollar view, and room service was excellent. Definitely one of the nicer Hilton hotels, and we will definitely stay here next time we visit!

Review collected in partnership with Hilton Hotels & Resorts
Hotel's Favorite
I travel for business all throughout North America, I spend nearly every night in a hotel. I've seen just about everything, and the vast majority of properties have at least one or two things that need improvement. This is one of the exceptions. Of course the location is great, it's clean, the food is great, etc. But the STAFF are the big surprise. I was there for a whole week, and by the time I left, I had made a point to start taking down their names, for the specific purpose of calling them out here: Ezra the bartender was a classic pro bartender, smooth, fast, friendly, perfectly suited for his job. The same goes for Jose, my server each morning at breakfast. Lightning-fast, attentive, and super-friendly. And the restaurant host, Kester, was wonderful, explaining all the breakfast buffet options to me on the first day (I'm a Hilton Diamond Member, so there are free options AND upgrades on offer). He greeted me every day with a smile, and really made me feel at home. It REALLY started my day off right each morning! I did not get the name of any of the desk staff, but every interaction I had was perfect! Kudos to the GM of this property, I train Customer Service for a living, I KNOW when it's being done right! Definitely my new L.A. home base of operations!

Our impromptu trip to Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City was Unbelievably FABULOUS!! We were only there for a few days but this Amazing Staff took the time to learn our names, they treated us like Family VIPs, and truly rolled out the Red Carpet! From Atefeh's personal care at the front office; to the Best ice cream sundaes at the sports bar; to the over-the-top buffet meals and very kind wait staff; to Jesse the Concierge’s excellent insider info on all things L.A.; to Bruce the Jeweler-Extraordinaire who speaks Ten languages; to the royal Diplomatic Suite with a wall of windows over-looking Universal Studies (including Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Castle!); to 'Shawna-the-Incredible Overseer of All Things Important’ ... our trip could not have been better, and we can not wait to return to our new California, ‘Home, Away from Home!'

I recently spent 3 nights here in a room with a view of Universal Studios. The room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. The bathroom had more than enough room, and lovely little toiletries. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from Universal Studios and CityWalk. The free shuttle runs from the hotel every 10-15 minutes, which comes in handy after a long day at the park or a late night meal at CityWalk. I would recommend this hotel, it is very family friendly, and would definitely stay here again.

Since this was the last leg of our trip we decided to stay somewhere really good and we have not been disappointed. From the moment we arrived until we left all the staff have been absolutely fabulous. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the service in this restaurant was faultless. I would like to make special mention of “Inky” each morning we had breakfast we noticed how hard he worked and how pleasant he was to everyone he came in contact with. His work ethic blew us away. Inky you’re amazing!! That smile of yours lights up the whole room!! So thanks Hilton Universal City for a fabulous end to our holiday. Great location away from the centre of LA without being too far. We will Definitely be back when we visit LA.
