    Nice friendly staff, but smells food the moment you enter the hotel, the location is great though..

    Really enjoyed our stay here. Great staff, very pleasant and helpful. Pool area is great, as is the breakfast buffet. Only downside is the charge for wifi

    They now have Free WiFi in the rooms, but beware the complimentary level is quite slow and prone to dropped connections.

  • Andrea M.

    $7.95 Internet charge per connection is steep compared with other US hotels but still cheap compared to Australia!

    From its hilltop location, the 24-story hotel offers panoramic views of the Hollywood Hills, the San Fernando Valley and the mountains beyond.

    Free mobile hotspot if you have AT&T! Sweet!

  • Tim M.

    Fantastic service. Free shuttle to Universal but worth the 5min stroll

    Tim Moran · September 19, 2013
  • Verna

    Very nice staff but avoid staying here (at all costs) if you're traveling for with work. tourist trap for families + thin walls = screaming children on surround sound. No way you're getting any sleep.

    Verna · September 12, 2013
  • S W.

    Not only is parking expensive but there is am early checkin fee of $25. It doesn't matter if you are a Hilton member or not!

    The whole family went down to the pool played a bit then hit the hot water. Now settling down and looking forward to Universal Studios

  • Pete I.

    Great experience for me and my family (6 & 9 yrs). 5 min walk to Universal Studios. Friendly staff. Nice pool, hot tub, and workout facility. Only gripe is the price for parking & WiFi but it's L.A.

    Pete Icke · March 17, 2013
  • Aga A.

    Rooms are rather uninspiring but I suppose the location and the views make up for it. Clean and comfortable. Nice staff. Beware: No free wifi. Variety of food options right here, in the hotel.

  • Sadey D.

    Average hotel. Needs a major facelift. Not really worth the money. But there is a "Starbucks" in the lobby.

    Charges for WiFi. BUT they do offer a 1 hour "complimentary" code that they claim can only be used in the lobby. What they don't tell you...the code works in your room AND it can be used over again.

  • Poet V.

    Great service, from the doorman, to the bell hop, front desk staff, and concierge. They treat me like royalty. Just fabulous!!!

  • Ernst

    Good hotel, but beware of poor Internet connectivity. No free wifi, except for an hour in the lobby if you ask for a voucher. Is this actually still possible in 2012?

    Ernst · August 16, 2012
  • Tom

    A little run down, but close to City Walk/Universal Studios & the Metro Red Line. Walls are very thin here, so expect to receive a complaint if you are watching TV after midnight. :(

    This place is a giant hot ass of a hotel that cannot coordinate the Hollywood half marathon registration.
