We cant say enough great things about this hotel...everyone that we came in contact with went above and beyond. From the first call to book a reservation, Sona & Arlando at check in, Dorothy and Angela in house keeping, Tracey and Norm at the bar, Edmund at the restaurant, and of course Michael Rose front manager.....We are looking forward to our next visit to the Burbank area and of course at the Amarano Burbank.

Room Tip: Top floor, top suites and top service.

I made my reservation based on other reviews. My daughter and I were having a mothers day get away and wanted somewhere nice to stay for a few days. I didn't have a car so didn't have to worry about paying the extra charge for parking, as some other reviewers complained about. Instead the hotel has a SUV shuttle that was awesome!! They picked us up and returned us to the airport, and also back and forth to Universal Studios, never waiting more than 4 or 5 minutes. The drivers were all very friendly as were all the employees at the front desk. We also purchased discounted tickets to Universal which was nice so we didn't have to wait in line The location was excellent, close enough to CBS studios where we went for a live taping, Hollywood blvd, etc. Went to the bar and the bartender did a few magic tricks. All in all we had a great time. Room was clean. Pool was on the small side but nicely heated and hardly anyone but us using it. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room on the pool side. Our room faced the street and the road noise could be heard...

Very comfortable beds. At night I had to turn the A/C off because it was loud. Omg on the loud topic the floors are paper thin. The person in the room above me walked like an elephant, stomp stomp stomp. Rude!. Ok now on the Rude topic the assistant manager Jon - has no manners, I pointed out to him the he had "pawned me off to someone else" ..wtg. On arrival I had no internet connection, the front staff sent to my room..get this...the hotel maintenance guy with his tool belt. I wonder which "tool" made that decision. I thank Edwin - front desk, that got my internet going and with other suggestions regarding transportation. ""Thank you"" for not "pawning me off" to someone else and you did it yourself.
There's nothing complimentary in this hotel, not even the coffee. It's an expensive hotel for what you get. I liked that there was a plaza right across the street. Location is fantastic!

Room Tip: my room was on main floor. not sure about the others.

Stayed here for a family holiday and it was perfect for us, great location it was close enough to disney and central LA but was in a quiet spot. the room was perfect size as we had 2 kids it had a seperate lounge and a seprate walk in wardrobe which was big for a hotel. The staff were great and prompt. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite huge, with seperate lounge and kitchen was great.

We made the reservation blind, based solely on the recommendation of a co-worker and we're glad we did. It's a beautiful hotel centrally located to some of Burbank's iconic locations, many of which are within walking distance. The room was nicely updated and furnished with modern style, a comfortable bed, and a nice balcony overlooking the pool area. Room service was great and timely, and I found the rest of the staff friendly and very helpful with restaurant recommendations, etc. Let's put it this way, my next trip to LA will include a stay at the Amarano.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the room with a balcony view of the pool area. With the gorgeous California weather, it...
