The Amarano Hotel is a lovely quaint property conveniently located in the media district. My wife stayed there while I was on a business trip in Las Vegas. We thought it would be a nice getaway for her but such was not the case. The room was old and tired-- obviously this hotel was something of a much lesser scale...

Great service, wonderful room, phenomenal staff! So stellar that I stayed an extra night. I particularly enjoyed The Library, the hotel bar and restaurant. The bartender was knowledgable and personable and really mademall of the patrons feel like valued family. Will return again!

I stayed at the Hotel Amarano of Burbank on a few occasions. It is best described as a "boutique hotel" by factors of design, location, amenities etc. The hotel is very CLEAN. The staff is accommodating to any requests, the Valet is efficient and friendly. I recommend valet parking, you could do street parking but Valet is easy and at...

I think I had a higher expectation of this hotel than what it actually was. While it was nice, clean and had a good gym, it smelled a little musty and was a bit more run-down than I expected. The website describes it as "luxury" but I wouldn't qualify it as that. That being said, it was nice and the...

We were visiting a friend shooting a film in Van Nuys, and intended to stay in a regular chain hotel. At the last minute I upgraded us to the Hotel Amarano, and I'm happy I did. The hotel is located in a somewhat residential neighborhood, but close enough to anything we needed. Lobby lounge is sweet and they served food...

Check-in was fast and easy - the lobby is very nice and clean. They have a gathering area and small bar that was also very nice. The room was clean, beds were comfortable.
