“Perfect property for a Universal City stay...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

The room with the view was on the 18th floor very nice and priced right as I used my AAA card for the best possible rate. It is an older Hotel but the staff is exceptional and very attentive. It was my first time staying at this Hotel for a couple of days with my Family as we enjoyed the shuttle service to Universal studios and its restaurants. Don't forget... ask your discount at all Universal Studios shops and restaurants everything is a bit pricey. The room was spacious and the view was spectacular and very lovely. The beds are extremely comfortable with the extra touch of having fluffy soft pillows after a long day was even more special. Everything was clean, decorative and convenient. A great place to stay when with your Family. We will definitely be back to visit and stay in the next few months.

Room Tip: Ask for the 18th floor views....

Just stayed here with my wife. It was our first time in this hotel, but as Diamond HH members we have stayed in quite a few hiltons. This is very good. They don't have an executive lounge, but they know how to treat guests. The room was great with exceptional views. Lots of families as you would expect.

Nice hotel, very convenient to universal studios. We stayed here last weekend because we had a wedding reception there. The hotel is clean and nice, there was issues with the elevators though which we had to go up, to come down from our floor. This was a bit of a pain in the butt. The pool was nice, the hot tub was ok. Many of the jets didn't work. I found it needed some upgrades. The staff was very friendly.

Spent four nights here back in August. The hotel was lovely, the rooms were very big - very spacious to cater for 4 big suitcases! The in room refridgerator is really handy for water & milk! We had a view of Universal from our room which was also nice! The wifi was free of charge in our room despite being told there was a daily charge :). The breakfast buffet at this hotel is outstanding, definitely worth the money! The pool is small enough but there is a nice jacuzzi and bar by the pool. There is a nice hotel gift shop too. Would recommend staying at this hotel for going to Universal and it is within walking distance of City Walk aswell or there is a free shuttle bus if you are too tired/lazy! Downside is that guests would need a car to go to downtown LA etc!

Great hotel and convenient to Universal studios. When I booked I asked for a high floor with a good view they didn't disappoint 19th floor and great view of Hollywood hills and Universal studios. The room was very spacious huge bed great bathroom. Staff where very welcoming and helpful. Restaurant was great and reasonable we ate in the restaurant and had a meal in our room. It is a 5 minute walk to the studios but for those who think this is to much they even put on a curtesy bus. It is a bit out from LA main streets but the metro is 10 minute walk away and very cheap 1 stop and you are on Hollywood blvd. We used hop on hop off bus which stops outside the hotel would definitely recommend this we took it for 48 hours we where able to see all we wanted. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Nothing special about this hotel except for the staff. Really nice and eager to please! The rooms were not as clean as I would expect from a full service Hilton - but the bed was really comfortable. I will return to this hotel simply because I found the staff to be so wonderful.

My room appeared to be clean, except when I went to put left over food items in my frig...there I found 4 half full bottles of soda left by the previous hotel guest. I also found some trash under my bed and what appeared to be the cap of a syringe on the side of my nightstand. Those 2 things put a damper on my hotel experience.
