Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City
A favorite with entertainment execs in a hillside Valley location.
A bit glitzier than its next-door neighbor, the Sheraton Universal, this sleek, high-on-a-hill tower sits on six landscaped acres just outside the entrance to Universal Studios. If you’re hanging out in the lobby bar, complete with live piano player, chances are you’ll overhear en route entertainment execs and other star-struck visitors discussing the next day’s movie pitch. If you’re into the business of entertainment, then this is the place to stay. Guest rooms can be fairly described as ordinary-contemporary, but they’re spacious, and the higher up offer some great mountain views (on days when smog isn’t obscuring the horizon) and bejeweled nighttime Valley vistas. The hotel has a massive glass-vaulted atrium that houses Café Sierra, which serves Continental cuisine and a bounteous seafood buffet on Friday through Sunday nights. Health nuts gravitate to the state-of-the-art fitness center and cool off in the outdoor pool.
