My family of four stayed here for one night as we had tickets to Universal Studios. We checked in without any issues, walked to Universal City Walk (only a mile away!) and even enjoyed the clean heated pool and spa. Room was clean. Bathroom was clean. Staff was super friendly. Will definitely visit again!

Hotel's Favorite
I have been staying at Hilton for YEARS, and have not stayed anywhere since COVID started until this stay in March. I have over paid for junkie stays in the past and can write a book on the things encountered, so it was nice to find the right location for the right price! This location was AMAZING in the cleanliness and the friendliness of staff. The hotel is was super clean and is the perfect location for anyone staying in LA. It is close to Hollywood, Downtown, and is easy to get in and out of. The amenities are not over done and over priced. They have just enough for an enjoyable stay, and great views from the rooms. The location is pet friendly and has about a dozen EV type 2 chargers. By far our first choice for staying in LA and for when Universal Studios finally reopens, as it is the closest to the park.

We had a great stay here while visiting Universal Studios Hollywood. The restaurant was good for breakfast as they have a continental option with cereal and yogurt for kids. For all our questions, the staff was extremely helpful. We will stay here again next time!

We just stayed here for the 1st time June 1st- 3rd. We wanted to stay close to Universal Studios due to having our 2 kids with us. The pictures looked amazing and the reviews were great. Pulling up. Your like WOW it's really pretty. Lobby was nice and girls at the check in we very sweet. But got to our room. We booked a room with 2 double beds and got the 8th floor. I immediately noticed stains on the carpet, our daughter found hair in the shower from previous guests when she went to take shower, the shower kept making noise like the pipe was about to burst. Beds were HORRIBLE. I stayed a lot of places and these were the WORST beds I have ever slept on EVER. They were hard, didn't fit on the bed frames (so they was a large gap AMD my 5 yr old smack his toe and back on it when he sat down by the bed, they squeaked everytime you moved on them, the blankets were a thin/cheap crappy down comforter with NO duvet, just a top sheet over it to make it look nice. We took the kids to the pool, which was nice seating but the pool is heavily saturated with chlorine. My eyes burned for the rest of the evening. You are not allowed to bring your own drinks or food to the pool and when my husband asked the gentlemen at the counter if he could order, the guy didn't even answer him but gestured to a window next to him (which was closed) and then walked away. I usually don't write reviews, but this was bad. If we do return to Universal studios Hollywood, I will be spending my money elsewhere.

Lovely hotel with a 5 minute walk to Universal. The bed was very comfortable, hotel overall was very clean. Staff was very friendly. Very disappointed in the pool area. We went on a Tuesday evening around 7pm after visiting Universal. There were used masks, garbage & used towels everywhere. There was NOBODY at the pool area though.
