Across the street from Universal Studios Hollywood, the Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City has excellent access to the downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood areas, which makes it popular with business and leisure travelers alike. Most guests report that the hotel is a standard Hilton property with (thankfully) no surprises. Guest rooms are outfitted in neutral decor and come equipped with Hilton's signature Serenity beds, free wireless Internet access and minifridges. Still, some guests say that the rooms could use a facelift as they show some wear. This property also houses two pools, a fitness center and several eateries, and members of the Hilton HHonors loyalty programs can earn and redeem points here.
