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.

The surroundings of the hotel were beautiful with lush gardens and hilltops with views of Universal Studios. Rooms were modern although the bathrooms could be cleaner. Small spots of mold on the tile. Our room had an adjoining door to another room which is not sound proof. The hotel staff quickly handled the noisy guests. I overlooked the shenanigans going on in the hallway since the noise was short lived. Although the path to Universal Studios is short, it’s not exactly safe to walk with young children. There’s a shuttle every 15 minutes, but if it’s full one has to wait for the next one. City Walk is close with lots of restaurants to choose from. Wished the coffee booth was open in the afternoon and evening. Lobby and pool area are small given the grandeur appearance on the website. Over all I recommend this hotel due to the location and convenience. Read less

Roxanne at the front desk puzzled through my terrible handwriting to help me get a document sent to my boss. She saved me the search for an all night kinkos and went above and beyond! All of the other employees are wonderful too, but she really saved me!

10-minute walk to Universal Studios. Good, clean rooms and accommodating staff. Nice, comfy beds and pillows. We have eaten in the dining room, though not on this trip, and the food is good, though a bit pricey. Same goes for this hotel overall. Quality (in anything) isn't cheap, but perhaps it shouldn't be quite so expensive either. Still, we've… Read more

We stayed here for 2 nights recently. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to Universal Studios. They also provide a free shuttle service to the park.

Our room was on the second floor and overlooked the beautiful pool area. The pool area was lovely and had a fire pit going if you wanted to sit by the fire and there were tables, chairs and plenty of towels. We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant one night and the meal was really good as was the buffet breakfast. There was so much food to choose from both hot & cold. We really enjoyed staying here.

Rooms were very clean, comfortable and room service was outstanding. Location was convenient to the attractions we wanted to visit. Only complaint was the price for hotel guest to park our cars daily and having to valet your car during check-in and check-out.
