Stayed at the BLVD for one night while touring Universal Studios with my husband and son.
The Good: very helpful staff! They helped us find the very close by free shuttle to universal studios. Also the price was reasonable compared to other universal city hotels. The room was very clean, spacious, beds were fairly comfortable.
The Bad: neighbourhood was a bit sketchy. Very surprised about the hotel entrance, just a little hole-in-the-wall. It appears that the hotel was renovated on a budget. Some things were well done such as the bathrooms had nice pedestal sinks and shower rain heads, but the fitness room had only 4 pieces of cardio equipment--no room for more. Spa appeared very small-again little hole in the wall. Pool again was tiny in a a small area, parking very crowded. Had to leave our car keys with the front desk so they could shuffle cars around to let guests in and out. Very limited breakfast cart and lobby bar.
THE UGLY: paper thin walls! Our neighbours came home at 3:30am and it woke both my husband and I up. We could hear the door close, follow their entire conversation easily, etc.
For this reason we cannot recommend this hotel nor will we be returning.
