We stayed here to celebrate my daughters 30th birthday at Universal Studios. I have read that this hotel is being renovated, that said I never heard one bit of construction noise. The rooms are getting a makeover, which they need, but the rooms were comfortable,the bath a bit small but for two days it was big enough. The real draw...

I have stayed here before and love the location. Its easily accessible to everything except the beaches. I had seen the notice that there could be visible or audible signs of construction since the hotel is undergoing a complete renovation. Although I heard a little bit of noise it was only infrequently, when I was outside. I stayed in an...

I am enjoying staying at the Sheraton Univeral this week - Christmas decorations are lovely, nice hot cider waiting for me in lobby, great staff (and funny #spin content to earn starwood points by a bean bag toss) I'll be back next time I am here on business

Room had great view of mountains, was clean and very comfortable and up-to-date. Bathroom also clean and everything worked well. Pool was excellent, just the right temperature. Spa was an indulgence we all enjoyed. All staff were very welcoming. Lobby and bar area had friendly feel to it. As SPG members, we got room upgrade and free wifi. Hotel is...

We stayed at this hotel because of its proximity to Universal Hollywood, and we paid extra for the breakfast to make our mornings easier. We were pleased with the hotel itself and the staff upon arrival. However, the nights there were less than optimal. The doors to the hallway do not have good sound proofing, neither do the doors to...

Wonderful place to stay in LA. It may not be cheap but our short stay was really memorable since it was so close to the park, very convenient, perfect for a weekend break #Spin Will book again, interested to see the hotel after the new improvements.

Had a great experience with every staff member I met at the Sheraton Universal. If you have extra SPG Platinum Suite Nights, this is a great place to use them! While you can get a great room at any Sheraton or Westin, only here can you be placed in an elaborately themed Shrek room! I enjoyed the cold breakfast in...

This was our second stay in 2016 ... and we loved it again. The service here is absolutely incredible.

The bell staff was super nice and helpful. The front desk is understaffed and racist. They let the line grow to 3+person without a second staff. I was 3rd in line. The 2nd person in line was one of their VIP SPG and they let him rot. As I was waiting a white couple marched in front of me and...

The Sheraton is a great hotel if you're visiting Universal Studios -- either as a family or a business traveler. The rooms are well appointed and modern. The bed is super comfortable. The restaurant has a nice breakfast buffet and the staff is friendly. Plus the hotel is walking distance to the park/City Walk. You can't beat staying at the...

Dear David C, so great to hear that you had a wonderful time at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed your visit. The games in the morning are so much fun and it's always a great way to start the morning! I have to agree the beds are super comfortable .....so comfortable you can actually buy them for your own home!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nothing says Hollywood like a facelift. We have started our guest room renovation at the HOTEL OF THE STARS. All services are still available for guest use during this phase. At the Sheraton Universal Hotel, located next door to the excitement of Universal Studios, we artfully blend Sheraton's four-star service with the history of an iconic Hollywood Hotel. ... more   less
