We spent 4 nights @ the hilton universal city , opting for this resort as our based camp to circulate around LA.
The best location if you plan to hit the universal studios , a shutlle will drop you at the universal citywalk every 15 minutes, or walk ( it takes 6 minutes).
Close to Hollywood and Beverly hills ( 5 minutes from sunset bld). So great
The rooms are not so great : a bit old, double beds instead of queens bed , which is a shame as it is not very confortable. No space for a rollaway bed neither.
The pool is very nice : large, with a great jacuzzi, maybe a bit of painting necessary, but the pool was never too crowded, the food very nice. Great experience.
THe food options are amazing : try any of the buffets on friday, saturday or sunday brunch. Amazingly tasty. We ate there almost everyday, and it was delicious each time. We were really impressed by the quality of the food.
Universal studios were a hit with the kids , especially the new transformers ride.
We will probably stay in santa monica next time, as we prefer the " beach feeling " , but will never hesitate to stay again at universal should we visit the park again.
You can't go wrong.
