Verified Reviews of Hilton Los Angeles / Universal City

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nice Rooms, But Not Very Family Friendly."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We stayed for two nights after being at Grand Californian at Disneyland for a week. Embassy Suites has always been very family friendly however, this Hilton was not so much. The rooms were nice, not too small even for standard room. Couch did not have pullout bed which website said it did under amenities. We had to share the king bed with one of our kids and the other slept on the couch. The portable bed was going to be an additional $35 charge to the already steep $384 per night for the standard room. The kids did have fun at the pool though. Cafe buffet for dinner was good and the service for our kids was exceptional.
