A very over rated hotel very noisy not only due to renovation but one main freeway right next to the building.Also we had to pay $19.00 a night to park the car. The restaurant is very expensive.i will not be staying here again. On the plus side the hotel is in a good location .

Thank you for the review. I apologize you found our parking and restaurant to be expensive. I’m happy to hear you can appreciate our ideal location! Our renovations will be complete soon this summer – I hope you will come back to experience the final product! Safe travels!

Value for money. Clean and nice hotel. Location is also good. It's a pretty hotel. We didn't encounter any problems during our stay. The hotel's shuttle is very convenient. I may try another hotel in my next visit but will come back here in the future for sure.

We arrived at 12.30pm and were able to get an early check in so we could drop off our bags and pop straight on the shuttle and be at Universal Studios by 1.15!!!

The shuttle is a fantastic included ‘extra’.

We did not spend a lot of time at the hotel (actually we were only here to sleep!) but the room was clean and comfortable.
Room was a little dated but suited our needs. (Renovations in progress)

Staff were friendly and efficient.

This hotel was convenient for this stay and suited our needs perfectly.

Parking was $19 a night

Renovations in progress….this did not affect our stay as only seemed to occur during daytime hours when we were not there.

Because of the cost of parking and no breakfast included we may look at alternative hotels on our return to LA.

The hotel is lovely on very nice grounds. It has a good restaurant called 'Warrens Blackboard' and the food is lovely. The reception staff are very helpful, the rooms are clean and reasonably sized. There is currently some construction work going on there to better the lobby area etc. but it caused me minimal disruption. There is a free shuttle bus to Universal Studios which is handy because it costs a lot to park up there. I did find having a car helpful in getting around because it's about 15-20 minutes drive to other sights. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We were told in advance that this hotel was undergoing renovation work but decided to stick with it. So glad we did! Upgraded to a newly refurbished room when we told reception about our Silver Wedding. We were on the 7th floor of the El Dorado block. A lovely room with a very comfortable bed, lovely bath and shower, large TV, fridge, coffee machine and free WiFi. We ate 3 times at Warren's Blackboard attached to the hotel, wonderful food and service! Our first night was a little disturbed by the traffic from the nearby freeway. Thought about asking to be moved but we really loved the room so stuck with it. The other 3 nights it didn't seem to bother us. One day our room was not cleaned, but a phone call to reception, someone came up straight away with fresh towels and coffee. Aiden, the concierge was so helpful in booking our tickets to Universal Studios and a day trip with Starline Tours, which was fantastic. The free shuttle bus was a real bonus. On our last morning, reception were more than happy to let us keep our room until 2pm. We did go to the pool and the drilling work was very noisy, but with our ipods on, it didn't really matter, All the staff were so friendly, everybody always spoke, no matter what their job was. A brilliant way to end our USA holiday!!

Room Tip: Maybe a room overlooking the pool wouldn't have quite so much traffic noise.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review! It’s fantastic that you tried out one of our new rooms and have such great feedback to give us. I’m glad to hear the traffic noise did not disrupt you – we do have sound-proof doors installed to prevent this. We will inform Aiden in our Boutique of your kind words – I’m sure he will appreciate the great feedback. We hope to welcome you back soon!
