This place was lovely and well placed - accessible to both the USC campus with some drive and the studios, highways and Griffith Observatory. We found this to be a gem and hope to stay next year when we return.
We arrived earlier than expected and were fortunately allowed into our room, thanks to the wonderful staff at check in. The room was comfortable and spacious. We loved the location, as we were 2 blocks from a supermarket, pharmacy and other small stores so we walked there a few times. The hotel was a short walk to the shuttle bus that takes you up the hill to Universal Studios. You could walk the whole way except that hill was rather steep. We only went to U. Studios once but went about 3 times to the Universal City Walk for movies and eating out. The staff at the BLVD were excellent, always helpful and friendly. We did not use the pool or gym.

Although we didn't spend much time in the hotel everything was great on all levels!!! My only complaint was with Expedia... I requested 2 beds and got 1. So 1 kid slept on the floor. The hotel made sure to fix the error on the 2nd night.
The hotel is very cool looking. It has a retro 60's look with a modern flair. The bathroom has a mirror that doesn't fog up and has LED lighting which you turn on like a TV. The bedding was the best part. The mattress was firm which I like and the duvet was so fluffy. It was an incredible sleep. Very comfortable. The second best part was the large outdoor HEATED swimming pool. The kids loved it.
Would definitely stay there again giving the chance. The staff there were very friendly. They smiled and made sure that everything was alright with our stay.
"Newly Refurbished and 10 min walk to Univ. Studios"
A great stay - I was worried about the ratty looking outside but the newly refurbished rooms was wonderful - black granite, beautiful tile in bathroom, great shower, flatscreen TV, quality workmanship - everything new. Bed was great too and manager and owner were both very hospitable. We came to go down to Universal Studios and found it was an easy 10 minute walk. They let us leave the car at the hotel and we saved $20 in parking fees.
