The Mrs and I have been to some real winners and real losers in and around Los Angeles over the years: The Graciela earns membership in neither column.
If you must stay in Burbank, you'll find your choices are limited to be sure - no 5-stars around here: you are down to a couple of local chain hotels and others which, while interesting, don't qualify for 'luxury' status.
The Graciela is clean, there's that - and it is relatively quiet. Rooms are spacious, but as others have mentioned the generosity stops there.
Room service and other amenities are priced as if this really were a 5-star. And don't think you'll just pop-out for fine dining: This is Burbank, not New York or San Francisco: The whole town goes to bed at 8pm and you may end up with Graciela's room service as your best option. As it is, the food is very good, possibly some of the best in town: It's just dramatically overpriced.
Mandatory valet parking will set you back almost 20 bucks a day.
Wireless Internet access was inoperable during our single-night stay.
The staff was very professional - they seem to think it's not The Ritz - let's not let-on, as it would only break their hearts.
