We recently stayed at the Sheraton Universal, having never been to LA before, I was quite happy with the location. Universal Studios is just up the road, maybe a 10 minute walk if that (I'm a very slow walker), there is a shuttle that runs from the Sheraton to Universal City Walk about every 10 - 15 minutes. City walk was very convenient as there are several restaurants to choose from and shops for anyone interested in some retail therapy. We ate at the Hard Rock Cafe one night, the service was exceptional, very friendly staff. We also ate at Bubba Gumps which I was a bit worried about being that it's like a eme restaurant but the food was very good, large portions.
The room is quite nice however my husband and I ended up with two double beds rather then one king but other then that it was good. The bathroom is quite small but functional, but there are two things I don't like about hotel bathrooms and unfortunately the Sheraton had both of them, I do 't like a shower over the bath and I hate shower curtains.
The concierge was very helpful, especially Fernando, he was very knowledgable and told us the best way to get around. ( the metro is just at the bottom of the hill, a quick walk I think there might also be a shuttle there. The train is very easy to catch and the trip into Hollywood for the walk of fame, Kodak theatre etc is only one stop and costs just $1.50)
The buffet breakfast was nice and although we got down late on our first morning there was still plenty to choose from.
There is no fridge in the room but there is a shop in the lobby if you want to by juice, water etc.
There is free wi-fi but only in the lobby.
If you want to do the hop on hop off bus tour it's quite good and you can be picked up and dropped off back at the Sheraton depending on your timing, we missed the last bus back at the end of the day so we just caught the train from Hollywood Blvd.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nothing says Hollywood like a facelift. We have started our guest room renovation at the HOTEL OF THE STARS. All services are still available for guest use during this phase. At the Sheraton Universal Hotel, located next door to the excitement of Universal Studios, we artfully blend Sheraton's four-star service with the history of an iconic Hollywood Hotel. ... more less
