The hotel was clean, quiet and in a great location. We easily walked to and from universal studios each day. Complimentary cocoa, coffee or tea in the lobby, and free popcorn in the evening. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. Our only glitch in the trip was a television remote that didn't work and a quick...

We really enjoyed our stay on Thursday, March 2. The room is nicely furnished and very quiet, they have complimentary coffee, tea and cocoa in the lobby and a small coffee maker, microwave and small fridge in the room. Tiny pool, but nice enough to relax. Veronica, at the front desk, was super helpful and super nice! Overall, we had...

I had read reviews before staying at this hotel, but because the prices were more reasonable than the hotels closer to Universal Studios I decided to make a reservation anyway. Would not do so again. They claimed that they were walking distance from Universal Studios City Walk and Theme Park, which yes is true but it is a LONG walk....

We spent a long weekend at the Tilt. Easy to access Universal and BH/Hollywood. I recommend Uber it to/from Universal instead of paying parking rates. Rooms were spacious and comfortable but noisy due to proximity to highway. The rates are pretty decent and for a couple of nights with the kids it was totally fine.

The hotel staff was helpful and answered all my questions. I was able to store my luggage before I checked in as I arrived early in the morning. I was also able to store my luggage after checking out free of charge. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable! If you are looking for a convenient location close...

Our check in was not a good experience - had to wait around 5 min for anyone to show up. Got to room and found our bathroom supplies (shampoo etc) were used and only half full, and hadn't been replaced with new and full ones. I needed to print our Universal Studios tickets (which is walking distance - don't pay...

The Tilt Hotel in LA is right near Universal Studios. About a 5-10 minute drive or 20+ minute walk. The rooms are clean and a good size. TV with on demand provided. Okay views of LA. Recommended to families or solo. Offers pool and parking.

I stayed at this hotel for 25 days recently and I am rather heartbroken to report that it has no redeeming qualities. I really wanted to like it. My biggest complaint against this place is that my little boy (5) left his wallet under his pillow and they "didn't find it." This means they have dishonest housekeepers. Then there were...

Clean room, as soon as I walked in I got a weft of Clorox scent. The rooms were very spacious with a king size comfortable bed. It had a mini fridge and iron with table and a desk with chair to place your laptop. The ac was very cold so that was a plus! They even provided bath and body...
