Hilton Los Angeles-Universal City

Los Angeles, USA

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.

Great over all experience! Perfect for Universal travelers. As an annual pass holder to Universal Studios there is no where else I would stay. The room was great (we opted for Executive King). The view was amazing and great size!

My husband & I were celebrating our anniversary at the Hilton Universal City Hotel. We requested an estandby add-on for executive floor upgrade/w/breakfast.

At the Hilton Hotel, I spoke with a wonderful women name Linda who then spoke to Roxanna (mgr) to see if we can be upgraded. Our request was granted for the add-on. Linda was very personable & well spoken. She also helped us with late checkout (our plane was delayed), bottle water, & hotel information. Rooms are very clean & hotel shuttle goes to universal Studios was a big plus. We will be returning next year. Thank you! Read less

Overall the room location, type, and view was good. The bed was good and the size of the corner suite was good. We had a great view of universal as we celebrated our 14 year wedding anniversary. On the second day we noticed some ants in the bathroom. One or two ants are no biggie. But we woke up with more than twenty+ ants crawling all over our stuff in the bathroom by the sink. Room 1469. We brought this up to the staff upon checkout and nothing was really done, other than… “we’ll look into it.” Hopefully the next person staying in that room will not have the same ant problem as us.

We stayed at this Hilton by Universal Studios because it's close to the park and they have a shuttle that takes you to the CityWalk. The corner room was nice and good size for 3 adults. We were on the 17th floor so we had a great view of the city and the park. Staff is nice but don't believe them when they say they booked a taxi for you.

I wasn't sure what to expect but this hotel was very nice and in an excellent location. I really didn't need to leave the area for anything. The staff was very friendly as well. The restaurant could use a little overhaul but other than that it was a great stay.
