Hilton Los Angeles-Universal City

Hollywood, Los Angeles

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.

3 nites, Tuesday - Friday. Pretty busy with tourists, weddings, conferences. Easy walk to the park, easy Uber to Hollywood. We booked thru hotels.com but are Honors members.

Were given an accessible room on the 4th floor. Lobby is 3rd floor. There are several conference rooms on the 4th floor and we had to deal with setup noise starting at 6:30a. Next time we'll eat at Burbank airport as there' a lot of selection. The Hilton is pretty limited and pretty slow for lunch. Read less

We really enjoyed our 3 nights staying in this hotel and were genuinely sad to leave. Location is excellent. We did not have a car, but found the area to be walkable, with Ubers easy to get if needed. The Metro is just down the hill, we could walk to In-N-Out Burger, Universal and CityWalk. Apparently there was also a free shuttle, though we never… Read more
We really enjoyed our 3 nights staying in this hotel and were genuinely sad to leave. Location is excellent. We did not have a car, but found the area to be walkable, with Ubers easy to get if needed. The Metro is just down the hill, we could walk to In-N-Out Burger, Universal and CityWalk. Apparently there was also a free shuttle, though we never felt the need to use it. The pool and the pool area is a great place to relax and escape the mayhem of the theme park. Our room was excellent. Spacious with awesome views of Universal Studios and surrounding suburbs. Beautiful both during the day and at night. Only downside was room servicing. I would call it lazy. We keep the room tidy and only needed rubbish to be removed and essentials replenished. The rubbish was removed, but not all of the towels and no soap, shampoo or conditioner were replaced. With three females in the room, that was a real pain. That aside, I would definitely stay here again. Great for families, business travellers and couples. Read less

My room had a very bad order and toilet area was not cleaned properly. The hotel staff was amazing but for the price I paid for room, it could have better. I was very disappointed with my room at the Hilton

Stayed here for 2 nights with 10 family members. The hotel was excellent. The only improvement that could be made is to the cost of the food at the in-house restaurants. Otherwise, the entire hotel was beautiful and the pool area was very nice. The hot tub was hot and they serve drinks at a small bar at the pool. There is a walking path to… Read more

Otherwise, the entire hotel was beautiful and the pool area was very nice. The hot tub was hot and they serve drinks at a small bar at the pool. There is a walking path to Universal that is very walk-able even with children. (and the shuttle comes every 20 minutes). Our room had a nice view of Universal/the Harry Potter section. Read less

We stayed 4 nights here and could not have been happier. Excellent staff, clean comfortable and spacious rooms. I recommend the concierge services especially if visiting Universal Services. Great location, easy parking, and great facilities. Also a special mention for Peets coffee in the foyer. Great coffee, helpful staff and thank you for… Read more
