Chose hotel on basis of revews on trip advisor. This is a summary of good and not so good points;
Good looking hotel that looks new and modern. Had a 2 bedroom (smaller size) apartment that adequately catered for our family of 5. 2 bathrooms was a big positive for a family with teenagers as was the 3 flat screen tv's. Our room was facing side street and did not encounter any problems with outside street noise or noise from adjoining rooms. We stayed for 4 nights and i would rate housekeeping as good.
On the negative side reports of noisy airconditioning are very true. We were lucky in that we did not need to run aircon for long periods of time as it would have been impossible to sleep with that noise.
Quality of breakfast is poor and Hotel closes breakfast down at 9am on weekdays. I have never heard of such an early finish time for breakfast however after making the effort to get up early one day we decided we were not missing much and didn't bother there after. Breakfast area is very tight.
Hotel doesn't have a restaurant however many food outlets in the area will provide delivery to your room. It is about a 10-15min walk to downtown shopping area.
The Burbank area that Hotel is situated in is serviced by a cab company called city cab. We were ripped off by a cab driver on our first trip from the hotel so I would suggest caution if you are a tourist and to get a quote up front for the approx cost of your trip or use an alternative private transport company. I do not blame Hotel for this situation and they were most apologetic after it occurred. After making a complaint to the cab company they refunded the amount overcharged which was appreciated.
Overall a fairly good experience.
