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.

My husband and I stayed here for a mini spring break vacation for our first time in LA. It was a great location as it was maybe 5 miles from Hollywood and all the attractions. However I came mainly for Universal studios and the Transformers ride (which is awesome by the way). There was a train station located at the bottom of the hill which was extremely convenient. Overall our stay was fun and the free shuttle from the hotel to the universal studios attractions was great!
From the moment we checked in, we were so impressed with this hotel. The bell hop remembered our names every time he saw us over the course of 3 days. The waiter in the restaurant remembered our special table and what our favourite pizza was. Piano music played while we ate. The pool area was like a resort. The view from our room was amazing.
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.
