Very close to Universal Studios Hollywood! I found the free hotel shuttle to the park very convenient. The hotel lounge has a terrific happy hour (even weekends!) with 50% off the bar menu for food! Excellent presentation of the food and it was very tasty. Overall, the hotel has beautiful landscaped grounds and most importantly well maintained! Very attentive staff regarding cleanliness. My room was a little small and noisy due to the nearby freeway, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons at this hotel.
