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.

Had a corner room with a view of Universal Studios. Rooms were huge and a big bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was excellent. Great location for a visit to Universal Studios. Only a 5 min walk or you can get the trolley. Whole hotel in general needs a makeover as it seems a little dated.

Best place to stay if your planning to visit Universal Studios Hollywood. They have everything you need also they have a bus that takes you and brings you back to the hotel. Am coming back for my next visit to Los Angeles and Universal Studios Hollywood.

We had an amazing experience at the Hilton Universal Studios! The staff always went above and beyond from check-in to check-out. Since we have a 7 year old and 12 year old, the location allowed us to go rest for a few and have dinner then go back to cl9se down the park. We will go back as soon as possible!

Very nice hotel, friendly helpful staff and the location while visiting Universal Studios is great only a 5 minute walk to the entrance, or a convenient shuttle. Nice heated pool and hot tub to relax around when a break is needed.
