I stayed at the Universal Hilton for 6 nights during vacation, and I can't say enough good things about my stay. I was concerned about the location, but as soon as I arrived I knew I had made the right choice. The first room I was given was on the 19th floor, overlooking the 101 freeway. I called down to the front desk, and they were kind enough to move me to another room on the 17th floor, away from the freeway noise. I booked a king bed alcove room, and it was quite spacious. There was a couch and small mini-fridge in the room, and a wall of windows overlooking the mountains and Universal. As a Hilton HHonors member, I received a complimentary fruit plate and bottled water the first two nights I was there. Service was excellent all around! The hotel is situated right next to Universal Studios and Universal CityWalk, and there is a free shuttle if you choose not to walk. The Metro stop is at the bottom of the (steep) hill; I walked down, but took the shuttle/tram back up to CityWalk from there and walked back to the hotel. Hollywood/Highland is one Metro stop away from the hotel. Parking is easy in the underground garage, and freeway access is very close. The pool was heated perfectly, and the pool area was a welcome respite from the busy-ness of the surrounding area. I had no problems during my stay, and the service was top-notch. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Hollywood and/or Universal area!
