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.

Stayed here for one night. A large group of people came upstairs at 3 am and were so loud, security was called and they began banging on the door several times until they opened up. Noise still continued, yelling, screaming, loud music. Felt like I was staying in a cheap motel for what I got. Room was clean but I couldn't sleep. I had to call… Read more

I had to call security again because it didn't stop. I would expect more from a hotel like this. Read less

Great service starts at the top. If the people in charge not only make service a priority, but lead by example, it's going to revierberate throughout a hotel and make every aspect of your stay better because of it.

Great service starts at the top. If the people in charge not only make service a priority, but lead by example, it's going to revierberate throughout a hotel and make every aspect of your stay better because of it. I experienced incredible service at this hotel from Tamisha, the front desk supervisor during a recent business meeting I had at this property. I work in the entertainment and media industry, and had a specific issue I was dealing with. Tamisha found a solution that was a difference-maker for me in this situation. She was incredibly accomodating, smart, friendly and practical; simply put, a breath of fresh air to deal with because of her kindness, common sense and competence. Hilton company, you have a true professional at this location. I live in LA, and it was the first experience I had with this hotel, and because of Tamisha and how she was a reflection of this hotel I want to come back, stay a night or two and go to Universal Studios. I highly recommend this hotel. Read less
