This is an overpriced hotel that looked as though it has not been updated in a couple of decades.

When I ordered room service, they could not even find the right room - they just knocked on other hotel room doors until I heard them. Then the person who brought the food complained about it being the kitchen's fault.

When I tried to get an itemized bill of my stay for my expenses, which they did not provide, a rude, fast talking girl told me that it was "too late," That I should have requested it at the time I was there. I have never had that experience anywhere else I have stayed.

I will absolutely NEVER stay at a Sheraton Hotel, again, anywhere because of the horrible experience I had at this dismal, overpriced hotel. Now I am out $275.00 for my expenses.

Unbelievable!!!!!!!!

I've stayed here many times and have always loved it! Great location to stay at if you're visiting Universal Studios also if you're going to Hollywood but want to retreat to someplace quiet. The restaurant is lovely and the service is great!

Convenient location if you're visiting Universal Studios but not much else to recommend it. Antiseptically corporate feel. Moderately nice views from the 21st floor Starlight Room.

Nice hotel but over priced in my opinion. Tough to swallow the prices here considering that its a Sheraton... not a 5 star resort. But not a bad place for events like weddings or proms etc.

Great place to stay and nice location if you will be spending a few days touring Universal Studios or visiting the Studio City area. If you are planning to visit Universal Studios, they have a free shuttle that drops you off there. Skip the line at the entrance and just buy tickets from the Concierge in the lobby of the hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean and gad a nice view of Studio City.

Right at Universal Studios. Gr8 location, gr8 staff. Very clean and plush feeling interior. Good workout facility. Have seen several entertainers staying at hotel while we were there. Perfect for exploring North Hollywood and Burbank area by car. Check out Good Neighbor Restaurant(North Highland to Cahuenga) for breakfast and U might see of tv personalities there. Chatted with Cedric The Entertainer there once. Also saw Alfonso Ribeiro of Fresh Prince Of Bel Air sitting 1 table away from us with his daughter presumably.

When visiting the Universal Studios tours, this hotel tower is one of two choices close-by (the other is Hilton) and of the two, I’d say the Sheraton has slightly less corporate feel but with all the expected amenities of a big chain. After the grand cul-de-sac drive, on entering the shiny mirrored lobby, there’s a swanky feel with lots of plush seating arrangements and a bar off of registration filled with framed images of Hollywood stars. There’s a big gift shop, spacious business center and fitness room, too. The inviting landscaped pool area downstairs has indoor/outdoor dining for a resort-like atmosphere. Request a room up high facing north for pleasant hillside views if you don’t want to see the vast expanse of the Valley. Located near the freeway for the drive to Beverly Hills or the beach, or take the Metro down the hill into Hollywood and downtown, and enjoy good local dining options, too.

This was probably the nicest hotel at the time I'd ever stayed in. Usually when I travel with family, we end up in places like the Best Western or Ramada. I've always held Sheraton in high regard because I recall going into one when I was much much younger elsewhere and I was simply impressed by how big the lobby was.

Now looking back, this place was really average. We were here for Universal Studios so ... that's all there was for the reason. The rooms were too small for a family of 4 in my opinion and the bathrooms had poor ventilation so by the 3rd shower, you're basically sitting in 100% humidity.

It's great if you're going to Universal, don't care too much about the room, and can get a good rate. Otherwise I'd skip.
