A nice place. It is showing it’s “age” and you can tell with 2 elevators out of order and being worked on. But... in all fairness, they did open two service elevators to help with the foot traffic. Nothing majorly bad but nothing really over the top. The nice thing, very short walking distance to “Universal Studios Hollywood- The Entertainment… Read more

After a gruelling two days straight at universal studios the welcome relief of the comfiest bed to rest. Extra large roomy shower not to mention the lovely porter George. Don't forget to pack your bathers too.

I was personally here for business meetings so I did not visit the park, but it is such a short walk we did eat at Universal City Walk. Hotel staff were very attentive for the meetings we held in their meeting space. We ate lunch at the restaurant in the hotel twice and were happy with our meals.

I was personally here for business meetings so I did not visit the park, but it is such a short walk we did eat at Universal City Walk. Hotel staff were very attentive for the meetings we held in their meeting space. We ate lunch at the restaurant in the hotel twice and were happy with our meals. The coffee bar closes early (10:30 I think it was) so plan accordingly. The only downside to the hotel was my room was on the smaller side with no real dresser to put my clothes in. Read less

Pretty good location for visting Universal studios and Universal city. Free Shuttle from hotel to Universal city every fifteen minutes from morning to midnight. Really good view from 17.th floor room to city. Nice and clean room. Breakfast was including to us. Not so many options to choose, but everything was good. Pool area was okay, pretty deep pool, or half of it. At evening pool area was in the shadows. If you think to visit at Universal studios, buy tickets from hotel. You get half hour before acces to area and go straigth trough to first ride or attractions, so you dont have to wait at line. Parking at hotel was not so cheap, about 30 dollars by day, vallet parking is more expensive. Read less
