Stayed at the hotel for five nights with my partner and couldn't have been happier with this hotel. I always score every hotel 5 stars and deduct points iif i find areas a let down, but dont feel they deserve anything less than 5 stars here! Maybe we Brits are a bit easier to please! It's on the doorstep of La's premier attraction, universal studios and universal city walk, and only a short hop into Downtown and the Hollywood walk of fame. Was slightly worried that we would be isolated given previous reviews, as we were adamant that we didn't want to drive on this trip, but that was just not the case at all. In my opinion, the hotel is centrally located and in the nicer part of town. The metro is a 10 min walk and so cheap at only $5 for a daily ticket: Hollywood walk of fame (5 min metro ride), downtown (15 min). Santa Monica beach slightly longer but still do-able (15 min metro ride to Wiltshire and Vermont and then 720 bus, inc in metro ticket, which takes about an hour). Free buffet breakfast with rate ( fruit to die for ), 45 min free wifi per day, lovely reception areas and spacious bedroom with enormous bed and small seating area.......shame we didn't get to use the pool, as it was so inviting, but there was just so much to see and do it was difficult to fit all in. Only downside was the sunday afternoon. pool party. We consider ourselves quite lively and enjoy clubbing but the music was dreadful, a bit too electric and Ibiza .....a bit of a wham or whitney and we'd have joined them! Guess were getting old hence our escape to the nearby pool at the hilton whilst it went on.
