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.

Wanted to get away for the night since the kids were out of school. Limited stores and restaurants opened at City Walk. We really enjoyed breakfast at the Hilton hotel with Roberto and Inky. The only thing better then the good was the service.

I stayed here last week — this is a very nice hotel, clean, spacious rooms & lovely large bathroom with excellent shower. I was greeted pleasantly & felt safe & welcome. Because Universal Studios park is closed (Covid), the hotel had a very deserted feeling. The gift shop is only open on weekends. There was a doorman on duty, but nobody offered assistance with bags, etc. I’m sure their staffing is less due to Covid. Also, I wish there were more food options in the evening— the one restaurant is high-end, full meals; it would have been nice to be able to get large salad or lighter options. Breakfast was delicious, with really great waitstaff. Overall, a nice stay, I’d like to return when everything is open 100%. Read less

So I am a diamond member with Hilton and have stayed at tons of Hilton’s. But I have created a home at the Hilton universal because of Tori Parker the manager. She creates a memorable experience every time I stay which is weekly. The beds are extremely comfortable, the rooms feel luxury, and the staff makes you feel like family! Great job Hilton… Read more
