“Very pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2011

I usually stay at Hilton properties for the points, but the Hampton in the neighborhood just did not appeal to me. I had never heard of the Amarano, but will stay here from now on when I am in Burbank overnight.

We were double upgraded to a King Suite, which was wonderful. We were warmly greeted from the driveway, to the front desk, to our room. The only nits to pick about the room were the low-pressure shower, the slow-to-warm-up lights, (they are trying to be green, here) the $30 per night parking and the lack of a view.

Once we parked the car, we took their town car everywhere. Actually, one can walk to many attractions, including Warner Brothers.

This boutique hotel is convenient to the Studios in Burbank and Studio City. The beds are comfortable; television has a great selection of stations and the restaurant and lounge downstairs is quiet and the food quite good. There is a plaza right across the street that has another few bistros and Asian restaurant. There is only a valet service should you arrive with a car. The only negative to this hotel is the shower. It's acceptable; however, the water never seems hot and the pressure is okay.

We have stayed at the Amarano five times and hope to keep coming back as long as prices do not go up: at present the value is good. The rooms are spacious and quiet, the beds comfortable, and there is a kitchenette to make breakfast. The lounge downstairs just off reception is welcoming. And reception has a bowl of icing-covered chocolates, which makes it a welcoming place to stop by en route to the room.

Room Tip: The hotel is being extended so try to be away from the building site. Fourth floor rooms have easy a...

I stayed here just for one night for business and was very impressed. The staff was excellent. Everyone from the front desk, the waiters and the driver were all friendly and welcoming. The food in the restaurant was very good and they were very accommodating of my co-worker's diet (my guess is they're used to that being near the big studios!) Both times we ate there we were the only table, which seemed odd. It was kind of on the expensive side for breakfast, but since the food was good and the company was picking up the tab I didn't mind! The gym was small but the equipment was in good shape and it was nice to be able to open the sliding doors to the rooftop patio and get some fresh air. The patio itself was nice too and no one was up there. The rooms were pretty spacious and had well equipped kitchenettes. It would be a very comfortable hotel for a long term stay. I hope I get to plan another trip to Burbank soon so I can stay here again!

The hotel was picked for me as it was a business trip. I don't really like boutique hotels as they're just too posh for me. Amarano was an exception: the room is perfect, the bathroom is cozy and well-equipped, just like the hotel. Internet is fine, business center is small but fine.

I can recommend this hotel to anyone. No whistles and bells but hey, if I'll go back, I'm happy to pick this hotel again.

(note: I'm talking about a business trip, so no value for the price consideration took place here)
