    Universal Studios was a short walk away

    Superb

    The comfortable beds, jacussi, pool and very close to Universal Studios. Plus the free shuttle to & from Universal Studios.

    I booked for an "Alcove King Room" room thru Booked.net, but instead got a "Deluxe Double Room." The front desk personnel told me that it didn't show on their records that I should get the said room. I'm sure about this 'coz I still have a printed copy of the corresponding reservation I made. I think, I deserved to get a rebate on this.

    Very good

    It was in a good location for us, close to everything.

    I usually like a nice casual sit down coffee shop. This Hilton only had a Starbucks.

    Universal City only.

    Very unfriendly staff which is suprising from the Hilton. Front Desk staff seemed stressed all the time, would not see the light of day.

    Great location next to Universal Studios, but the Metro is down the steep hill to access the rest of LA.

    Rude waiting staff at the breakfast service.

    Walk distance to universal studio

    Concierge lady recommanded some car to us instead of taxi, round trip to nobu ( japanese resturant) costs usd120, saying taxi costs more because of bad traffic, think she is kidding us!

    was short walk to universal studio's. Staff was great. Beds and linens were great.

    Booked room for 2 adults and 2 children, however only kept getting 3 bath towels. Only half of the jets work in jacuzzi.

    Fabulous

    The location is only ideal if you are going to Universal studios. It is a very clean hotel.

    There were a few things. Yes, it was within easy walking distance of Universal studios but I think it worth mentioning that it is not an easy walk with steep parts and quite a few steps. This is not the idea that I got from the website. Also the shuttle to the park stops at 4.30 pm and only goes every 20 minutes. The room was large, clean and well laid out. However we were traveling through California, Canada and Nevada with our adult daughter and she shared the room with us wherever we went. It was never a problem to have an extra bed (rollaway) put in the room wherever we went. This room was one of the biggest that we encountered but they refused to put a rollaway in the room because of 'fire regulations' I assume that these regulations are the same in most of the us but this was the only place where they didn't want to do it. This did become a problem for us because this hotel also had the smallest double beds we had encountered all over the us, so sleep was not a pleasant experience for us. We are Dutch and tall and the beds were too small for 2 of us, even they were 'double'. So I would recommend this hotel but also mention the above criticisms.

    Great hotel for those who want to stay just in front of Universal. Nice service.

    Parking was a little expensive, but worth it.

    Superb

    Staff were very friendly, food was excellent - Sergio was our waiter for the dinner - he was extremely attentive. Staff were great overall, the rooms were lovely. The location close to universal city was the only reason we picked the hotel.

    I thought the rooms were quite overpriced.
