Stayed at Sheraton Universal and enjoyed very much. 10 minute walk to City Walk and Park entrance. Very nice staff, close parking garage and nice lounge. For an older property they are holding there own. Very family friendly too. We would definitely come back.

We stayed in the Sheraton Universal recently and was quite satisfied with the whole experience. We requested an early check-in but our room wasn't ready yet. The bell man gladly took our bigger bags and held them so we can go sight-seeing at nearby City Walk. When we checked in at 3pm, the main lobby was a little congested but... More

Disappointed in the renovations noise. Hopefully it will enhance a semi dated hotel. Sinks and tub were clogged and it took some time till the maintenance man came and fix it. Staff was pleasant but not much for help. Expected much more for the money spent for a week's stay, but the beds were comfortable and the room was clean.

Pros Right next to Universal. U can walk there in less than 5 mins. Great continental breakfast at club level. Friendly staff, great looking lobby Cons. Old decrepit,soiled, pealing paint chipped wood just plain nasty and don't look at the a/c vents. Needs an urgent upgrade. ( apparently coming in near future??!!)

I stayed on a weeknight in August for business in NoHo - terrific location for that. I got upgraded to a suite , nice surprise. The room was ok, good thing it had two showers because one didn't work. Make sure to request a room that doesn't face the 101 highway, there is a 10 decibel difference. Club level breakfast... More

Great location, about 10 - 15 min walk to Universal Studios. Place looks shabby though, elevator landing bench upholstery torn, bed headboard visible damage. No free wi-fi. Parking available but $28 + tax per day. Sink stopper did not work. Very nice service, staff is helpful. Pool is nice, as is jacuzzi. Is it worth $300 + a day?

The Front Desk was so kind and showed exceptional customer service. We were celebrating my son's birthday and the Front Desk agent greeted my son by wishing him a Happy Birthday and had some goodies delivered to the room later that day. Every time we needed help with anything the Front Desk agents were friendly and happy to help. Also... More

Not sure why, but upon check-in, we had been upgraded to Club status. This gave us access to the club lounge. We had free bottled water, soda and juice throughout the day, breakfast (fruit, cereal, bread, meat/cheese, oatmeal) and a "cocktail hour" that was enough for a meal. Each night a different fresh salad (one night, Cobb, one night Greek)... More

Excited to visit Universal Sheraton as it is in close proximity to Universal Studios Hollywood. I am giving it 2 stars because the bedding was clean, fresh and comfortable and the swimming pool area was very nice, otherwise it would get ZERO STARS if Trip Advisor had that as an option. The hotel was beat down, the rooms were small,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nothing says Hollywood like a facelift. We have started our guest room renovation at the HOTEL OF THE STARS. All services are still available for guest use during this phase. At the Sheraton Universal Hotel, located next door to the excitement of Universal Studios, we artfully blend Sheraton's four-star service with the history of an iconic Hollywood Hotel. ... more   less
