Initially I would have given this hotel a very good review. If you book the King room, the room is spacious and the views of the mountains are quite nice. However if you book a room with two beds, the room is half the size and the views I had were of the parking lot. If you can get the...

When you say Hilton you expect amazing. Well this one inst that amazing. The suite is a little run down and the rooms are small. It can definitely do with a refurb inside, its outdated.

Overall the hotel was ok, a few things kind of threw me off a little. Upon arrival the guy at the front desk couldn't even muster a "Hello", when I asked if this was were to check in his first reply is "well you are way too early to check in" (when I booked the hotel I had already requested...

We booked in to this Hilton last minute as we decided to bail on a horrible hotel we had booked online. Feeling lost in LA, we decided to go with a reputable chain to avoid another disaster. We were not disappointed. The rooms were a good size and very clean. We had a view of universal studious out our window,...

Our room was more like a suite and the view was fabulous overlooking Universal Studios. It was close enough to walk to Universal but you could also take the tram that comes every 15 minutes and drops you off at the City Walk where all the restaurants and shops are at. We even got to see Mario Lopez filming EXTRA...

Reminded them about my AAA discount when I arrived and twice it was "accidentally" left off my room check in sheet. $70 was the difference so important. Finally after the dork at the front desk made the change, I got the discount.

I stayed for two nights and wish that I could've stayed more. Loved the friendly atmosphere. Very comfortable spacious rooms. Loved the bed. Helpful staff. There is a free shuttle to universal studios which run every 15 minutes. Parking is expensive.

Overpriced for an experience which more or less leaves a bad taste if something bad should happen during your stay. Perhaps they could try to work on better customer service without having to ask 3 times and without seemingly demanding tips for everything, which is not-done for a hotel in this price range.

Great view from the 20th floor. Watched the sunrise over the hills. Great breakfast buffet, but you can always order a la carte from the full menu.

I checked in and my room stank of smoke. I instantly got a headache. I complained as I walked in to the bell man. He told me call. I did and housekeeping said if I leave they will fix it. 3 Hours later still awful smoke smell. I call again, and 20 minutes, later they move me to a room...
