Where to Stay When Visiting Universal Studios Hollywood™

It’s no good saving money with your Universal Studios Hollywood™ discount passes if you’re only going to end up breaking the bank on accommodation. There’s nothing wrong with spending more either but what’s important is getting value for your money. Here are our recommendations for the best places to stay when visiting Universal Studios Hollywood™, for every type of visitor.

The Universal Experience—Hilton Universal City at Universal Studios Hollywood™

It’s one block from the entrance to the park—that’s all you need to know. If you don’t fancy a gentle stroll down, you can even take the hotel’s complimentary shuttle service on one of the shortest trips you’ll ever make. It’s the Hilton quality you know with stunning restaurants, a pool, and other convenient amenities on site.

It’s definitely not the cheapest option, but you could save on priority access for the park since you’ll have no trouble being first in line when you’re this close to the entrance.

A Piece of History—The Garland

This historic property got its name from actress Beverly Garland, who originally owned the hotel. It’s a large 200-room property, located just a short 10-minute drive from the park. As with the Hilton, they offer a free trolley to take you right to the gates or to the Universal City metro station so that you can explore LA during your stay.

Although a little further from the park, The Garland gives you that luxury Hollywood feel and you’re so close to all the action, it’s just perfect for a little slice of that magical world.

Classic Comfort, Reasonably Priced—Tangerine Hotel

Again, it’s about a 10-minute drive from the park, but this classic two-story motel combines authentic American accommodation with a modern twist. You’ll feel comfortable with the friendly staff and the wholesome breakfasts you’ll receive throughout your stay.

This is a great penny-saver as the parking comes free, and so does the Wi-Fi. Complimentary hot chocolate and a range of caffeinated beverages accompany breakfast, setting you up perfectly for your day at Universal Studios Hollywood™.

Membership Perks—Best Western Media Centre

Those who like their perks and benefits will almost certainly be familiar with Best Western. The premium hotel chain offers reasonable rates, and this facility includes free Wi-Fi and underground parking. The location’s great too—once again, only around 10 minutes’ drive from the park. You’ll have all the comfort that Best Western guarantees across its establishments.

Best Western even offers to match elite status for elite members of other hotel chains—free of charge! Thus, it doesn’t matter if you haven’t committed. This is a great option for regular travelers.
