Hilton Los Angeles-Universal City

Hollywood, Los Angeles

Virgin rating

The hotel

A Hollywood hangout with noteworthy neighbours, this LA bolthole’s just a block from the theme ride heaven of Universal Studios, a subway trip from the star-studded sidewalk of Hollywood Boulevard, and a hop from the Hollywood Hills. That hasn’t stopped Hilton Los Angeles Universal City coming up with a few extra treats of its own though – like the cool resort-style pool and hot tub in its garden, and the casual dining of its Café Sierra, Atrium Lounge, Coffee Corner, and Pool Bar & Grill venues. Most make a beeline straight for Universal Studios – and, despite it being just around the corner, there’s a complimentary shuttle to save you walking. And, while you’re there, you can also take in a movie, grab cocktails or craft beers, hit big-name shops, and dine at celeb-chef eateries in the neon lustre of Universal CityWalk.

Danny at the bell desk was amazing! He really went out of his way to help me and make me feel comfortable. He even remembered that I am from Georgia, and would always communicate when I would walk by. He is the best! - Sofía

Check in and key via app makes it so easy to show up whenever it fits you and go directly to your room. Dinner at Lounge was delicious and the server went above and beyond offering tips on local to-do’s. Clean, efficient and service oriented, would highly recommend. Shuttle to Universal Studios makes it real easy throughout the morning & day. We walked back (10 mins) at night when it was cooler and got some drinks and snack for the kids and cocktails to take up to the room from the bar. Delicious and superb. Staff is service oriented and very friendly, makes you feel valued. Again, would highly recommend. Read less

Very well located hotel, you could walk into Universal within 10 minutes which was very useful. Friendly and efficient staff, the room was comfortable and clean. We thought the pool area was a little small for the number of guests and could do with a refresh.

This place is really close to Universal, we booked it so we could just walk over each day, We had a rental car too and the self parking was super easy to use. The rooms are dated, but still pretty clean and nice. The pool is big, but there are not enough chairs, the pool service was quick though. The breakfast and dinner restaurants on site… Read more
