“Girls weekend in Burbank”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

My girlfriends and me went the Hollywood/Burbank are for a girls weekend. We loved the hotel! And, Misty at the front desk was exceptional. We flew into the Burbank airport and it was convenient to the airport. It's right next door to Warner Bros. Studios too. Thanks!

Room Tip: Had a poolside room and it was very pleasant, not too much noise. Sunny!

Love it! We have stayed anywhere from 2 days to 8 weeks! And no matter how long we stay we feel at home! We have stayed in Beverly Hills at the finest hotels and prefer the Amarano! Harvey The Bartender is the lead character in our LA travel book! He even has mad magic skills! Front desk favorite is Michael, and the valet guys are always ready with my car and stock it with water! Have met so many quality guests there too!
The perfect boutique hotel!

This was the first time we had stayed at the Hotel Amarano and we very happy with our stay. Rooms are large, quiet and clean. The service was great and everyone was very pleasant; especially the valet guys. We were in and out with our car multiple times during the days and they were always cheerful and helpful. Location is good by Warner Bros Studio. I would absolutely stay here again.

First off, I am a hard core reviewer. If I am gonna go anywhere I have to do my research. I picked Hotel Amarano because of all the nearby amenities and the room details.Bonus was that they offered a AAA discount! When we arrived at the airport we called and requested a shuttle, and we were quickly picked up by Luīs. Not only was he very friendly, but he was very informative and gave us excellent recommendations for places to eat. When we arrived at the hotel and checked in everyone was very friendly, and our room was excellent. The size of a little apartment, we were very happy with it. Best part is the full size fridge for all the trips to Porto's we made. The staff is very attentive and extremely friendly. We can't wait to come back, and when we do, we will be staying here!

Beautiful, modern hotel located right down the street from Warner Brothers Studio. We had a ride to the studio but it's close enough that we walked back. Fantastic service, clean, very comfortable bed with high quality beddings, our room was very very quiet, nice flat screen TV, large selection in the mini bar, Keurig coffeemaker, mini fridge. Beautiful pool, well kept grounds, very inviting.

My brother and I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful boutique hotel this past Saturday and Sunday (March 8/9) night for my brother’s birthday. Thanks to my travel agent and TripAdvisor we came across this gem.

This beautiful hotel and exceptional staff are amongst the nicest that I have encountered in all my travels throughout the US and Canada. My past experience has always been with the large chain hotels (Fairmont, Marriott…), but this wonderful hotel tucked in the heart of Burbank will be at the top of my list of places to stay when I have an opportunity to visit the Burbank area again.

The hotel and rooms are spotless, the pool area is beautiful and I can’t say enough about how wonderful the hotel employees are. Some of the hotel employees mentioned they had been with the hotel a long time, and gave credit to, and spoke highly of their GM, Tom Whelan, and their Front Office Manager, Michael Rose. Michael and John (I believe was the Assistant Office Manager) helped my brother and me during our stay and they were extremely professional, accommodating and helpful. We didn’t have an opportunity to eat at the hotel restaurant or visit the bar or gym, but if it’s anything like the rest of the hotel I’m sure it’s exquisite.

Also, if you are lucky enough to have José assist you when you arrive or drive you to a destination, he has the best stories and is a great ambassador to the hotel.

If you are in the Burbank area and are looking for a great boutique hotel I would highly recommend staying at the Hotel Amarano Burbank.

Our room was beautiful and very clean. The bed, pillows and bedding were very good quality and were always clean. We did have to ask for an adequate number of glasses and cups and the cleaning staff often left our dirty glasses there from one day to the next. We ate dinner in the bar on Sunday evening and enjoyed the company of the bartender very much! He was very friendly, his service was excellent and advise on other restaurants in the vicinity was spot on. We stayed 4 nights in March and slept with the windows open-a treat you don't often get in a hotel. We would definitely stay there again. The valet parking was great-very friendly staff and quick access to our vehicle. Would have liked it better if there was room in the mini fridge to put our fruit-it was full of chargeables. Also-only one K-cup each morning-are you kidding??? At least leave one per person!
