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.

A great stay and a memorable stay. Than you! I will come back and make another memorable trip. Staff and crew meets satisfied needs. My stay seem really special this time around because I felt every one was kind especially on what we are going through with this COVID-19. It means a lot and the safety with me and others.

Usually my wife will write the reviews so Bear with me, I have never recommended a hotel so much in my life. Not only are you walking distance from universal studios/ city walk but the staff make you feel at home!

Usually my wife will write the reviews so Bear with me, I have never recommended a hotel so much in my life. Not only are you walking distance from universal studios/ city walk but the staff make you feel at home! We have been going for the past 3 years I want to say and 80% of the time we go to check in it’s Roxanne checking us in and we love her, we come talk to her like we are old friends but she probably doesn’t even know we are ( and that’s okay we are in the industry so it’s difficult to remember everyone) she just is so welcoming and friendly. And that goes for everyone honestly, after 3 years of going we have not had a negative experience or a negative interaction with the staff. We tried the new restaurant FIVE on the hill, beautiful little area and such kind people working there. The food was delicious the drinks were delicious and we ordered a good amount and the bill wasn’t even that bad so to combine a amazing staff plus great food that doesn’t break the bank that will always be a recipe for success. You will probably see reviews from my wife, or myself a lot because we go a lot ( next week to be exact and probably soon after that another stay because again it truly is a home away from home. Sadly I don’t have any of the photos but next time Read less

Great place to stay and enjoy being within walking distance to Universal Studios, and amazing view of the park. Loved the pool and all available services provided by the hotel. Will definitely be back soon!

Every time we showered (morning specifically) we had to leave the hot water running for 15+ minutes in order to get some type of warm water. On the third day of our stay, we had no running water for more than 2 hours. Then it took another hour for us to get hot water cuz they were having boiler problems. We also requested bath towels twice, but… Read more
Every time we showered (morning specifically) we had to leave the hot water running for 15+ minutes in order to get some type of warm water. On the third day of our stay, we had no running water for more than 2 hours. Then it took another hour for us to get hot water cuz they were having boiler problems. We also requested bath towels twice, but didn’t get anything sent until my daughter went downstairs personally. I never leave bad reviews as I’m pretty easy to satisfy, but for this this to be a Hilton and the experience we had was such a disappointment. Unfortunately there’s not many lodging options close to the park so it’s either this or The Sheraton right next door. Makes me wonder if I should’ve stayed there instead. Read less

I just want to start by saying I usually stay at the Sheraton but it was fully booked for this weekend. I booked at the Hilton and immediately found the hotel to be larger and with the same great service. After the first day though I can honestly say I’m extremely disappointed.

I just want to start by saying I usually stay at the Sheraton but it was fully booked for this weekend. I booked at the Hilton and immediately found the hotel to be larger and with the same great service. After the first day though I can honestly say I’m extremely disappointed. I saw many adult guests walking around with out masks, getting drinks at the bar, waking in common areas and never once did I hear any staff ask them about their face covering. Traveling with my kids made this a bit more difficult. If I had known, I don’t think I would have stayed here at all. I understand the state is opening up but we are not there yet and we tried to stay out of the common areas for the same reason. We came here because we were going to universal studios. Universal on the other hand was great about mask mandates and sanitizer for every ride I had no issues there. Read less
