The Hilton was a great location to enjoy Universal Studios. Unfortunately for all the hotel had to offer, one can't appreciate it's accommodations because you are hardly in the hotel after spending ten hours at the parks.

Poor value. Overpriced. Did I say poor value and overpriced from the quality of the accommodations to the breakfast buffet to the dinner menu to bar drinks to the parking...did I miss anything? Oh, great location near Universal and City Walk.

Cost was high compared to this hotel chain at other locations. Did not use any of the facilities services, so I cannot comment on them. Charge for parking was reasonable compared to that which the park charges.

The hotel was clean despite being under construction. Staff were kind and helpful. Very convenient access to Universal Studios. Was able to walk back to the hotel for a rest during the day. I would definitely stay there again.

Very nice 4 star accommodations, excellent staff, superb breakfast and dining options and about a 3 minute walk from the gates of Universal Studios Hollywood. This hotel cannot be beat. Be prepared to pay NYC-style prices for self-parking though.

We had a room on the 16th floor. Rooms are nice size, very clean. Friendly staff. Breakfast buffet is great. Location is great as the hotel is located across from Universal Studios. Shuttle provided to the park complimentary. No need to fuss with parking at the theme park.

Me and my friends stayed in 4 rooms. Two single rooms and two double rooms. When checked in, the receptionist only gave breakfast vouchers to me and my other friend who stayed in single room as well. My other four friends who stayed in double room didn't get voucher and the receptionist said they just need to say their room... More

Great hotel, great location for Universal Studios, great staff! I would like to particularly draw attention to Mary Ann who worked reception on Thanksgiving. We had booked 2 rooms for 2 nights and I had spoken to reservations to request connecting rooms. We have 3 kids between 5 years and 9 years, so this is important as otherwise my wife... More
