We spent two nights here December 25th and 26th. First of all I thought I did research and even though I am a HH member I thought I had to purchase the package deal from Universal studios to get into the park early. I was wrong, so since I booked it through Universal and not

Response from HiltonUniversal, Manager at Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City
Responded yesterday
Dear 250MarikoC, Thank you for your recent review., I want to apologize for the lack of customer service you received. It is uncharacteristic of our hotel and team members to not be fully aware of our surroundings and on the shuttle that Universal Studios provides. It is true that Hilton will not allow us to give third-party website booking points or other benefits. In fact, if those guest are discovered to have received points during a non-Hilton booked stay they will be removed from your account. For this reason, we chose to notify the guest at the time of check-in so there will be no confusion. Again I am truly sorry for how you felt treated during your stay and we do hope to see you at our hotel again in the future. Best regards, Angie M., Marketing Manager

A standout was Roxanne at the front desk. She took excellent care of our family. We asked to change rooms shortly after check-in due to a guest next door and their small dog. Roxanne was able to get us a new room, same view, and also provide additional bedding and blankets for

We had a problem with our original room, which maintenance couldn’t repair, so they said they would find us another room and send the key cards up to us. We did offer to go down and pick up the cards, but they kept telling us they were on their way...... nearly 2 hours later we

Hi Darci., The early entry for the theme park is through the theme park themselves. You can choose to buy your ticket with us or online.

Does this hotel have a breakfast buffet?
Yes it does. If you’re a gold member is free, but only the continental breakfast. It doesn’t include the hot stuff (eggs, bacon, potatoes, etc). Not sure what the cost of the full buffet is.

There are plenty of affordable breakfast options for you and your family in the Hollywood area. There is a subway that can take you from Universal City Walk to Hollywood. The train ride is only about 10 minutes and it drops you off right under the Kodak/Chinese theater. I would download the Yelp app and search restaurant around the are. IHOP and Denny’s are a good option, but Mexican food is a great choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Let me know if this helps. If you have any other questions you can shoot me a message via FB or messenger.

"Corner rm on the 14th was lovely. Long windows down one side and about 2ft on the other. TV was far from bed."
