Stayed for 4 nights. We had an executive suite which was comfortable (bed was good) but the ensuite and main room areas are in need of renovation as are the main public areas and especially the lounge. We had lounge access which was basic. Breakfast was OK but limited. Pool and gym are OK but left with a feeling that...

Dear Jmahg, Thank you for giving us another opportunity to accommodate you. We are disappointed that you felt as though there was a lack of attention to detail. We recently renovated our pool area and are preparing to undergo room renovations as a result of guest feedback. As a Sheraton hotel, we know that there is a standard to meet...

The location is perfect for Universal studio visits. They've complimentary shuttles that run between 9 am to 10 PM to and fro between hotel and universal. Alternatively you can walk which is less than 10 minutes. Pros:- If you want to spend 2-3 days in Universal this is a good location. They've also a decent pool and gym. The rates...

Dear Rajarshi C, Thank you for sharing your thoughts. As you mention, our prime location near Universal Studios and complimentary shuttle service can make for an easy trip to the parks.

To this day, when my wife and I discuss past trips she brings up how wonderfully comfortable the beds were at this hotel. Rooms were also very clean and hotel was practically in walking distance from Universal. If I went back to this park, I would definitely stay here again.

Dear thegreathawaiian, It’s great to hear from someone who is such a big fan of the Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed.

My wife, daughter and I needed somewhere to stay close to Universal Studios for one night and I had Sheraton points to use so we chose here.

Chose hotel due to pet friendly and no pet fee. Rooms are over priced, even given no pet fee, for what you get. The pet friendly room we were given was run down and dingy! Shower floor paint was coming off (not that the shower should be painted in the first place!), bathroom faucet coming apart and had mold, wall...

Stayed for two nights and rooms where clean, and bed was awesome! Thick comfortable bedding that engulfed you. Making rest easy to come by. Hotel staff always available for any questions or concerns. The room service was quite pricey. Take hotel shuttle to city walk for nice restaurants.

Took the family to LA and we have stayed at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City for four nights and had a great time. We particularly liked about the Sheraton's proximity to Universal Studios and CityWalk - only a five minute walk from the hotel lobby. The Jr. suite that we stayed, was well laid out with clean and...

Dear Chang C, We appreciate your choice in hotel and the time you have taken to review your stay with us.

This place is conveniently located and within walking distance to Universal. We stayed with credit card miles and was the closest option but I don't think I would repeat the visit, particularly if not with miles. We stayed in a room overlooking the pool that had a very 60s look. The bathroom was very humid and poorly kept (bathtub was...
