FANTASTIC STAFF!!! Front desk, valet, hotel porter, waitstaff and housekeepers were all so friendly and so welcoming. Rooms were very clean, areas around the hotel was clean and walkways were clean. Can't beat the free shuttle service to and from Universal Studios. Beds and bedding were very comfortable and clean. Daily housekeeping. Found the light in corner, closest to window that hung from ceiling, that when turned on, lights behind headboards were turned on too. Although the pool was being renovated, we were told about it at check-in and relocated to available rooms in main tower.

It was a nice stay. I was lost at first because we stayed in the 200’s section. I didn’t know how to get there, but there was a worker I believe her name was Diana or something similar. She took us to our room it was a little maze but we made it thanks to her.

The pool was under reno's and we were not told until check in. It would have been nice to get a heads up that it was closed and that the reno's would be extremely noisy. You could hear no matter where you were in the hotel. The lighting in the room was horrible. Very dark, only bedside lights that were like reading lights. Looked like flashlights and only lit up where they pointed. The sink in the bathroom is a flat square. The water cannot drain and gunk accumulates. Not attractive at all. Inside the hotel and room was very clean. We loved the lobby bar. The staff was great. Food was awesome and portions were above average! The shuttle service to and from Universal was perfect. We used it several times a day.

Proximity to Universal Studios is very good. Free shuttle service to and from. The pool was being renovated per their website and was fenced off. Upon arrival we were informed that we could use the pool at the Hilton next door (too late as we didn't bring swimwear due to the website announcement). The pool is outside of the breakfast area and jackhammering started early in the morning. The hotel is immediately adjacent to a busy and loud freeway. Room quality for the price was sub par. Wall finishing was falling off, shower stall faded and stained and the furniture was worn. On-site parking is additional but was convenient with many open spaces. Overall not a good value for the money.
