"Excellent hotel location close to everything!"
We decided to go to Universal Studio and a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Selected the Royale because it looked close to Universal Studios. The best surprise! The facility is very un-assuming but once you go inside the rooms, it's fantastic. An old facility that was revamped and really did a great job! Everything is new from the floor to the ceiling. Clean, and well kept. The set up is separate units, which makes for a very quiet stay. No slamming doors of neighbors, or second floor dwellers. Nice bedding, TV, small fridge in the room, and A/C unit. Breakfast is included and definitely recommended. The staff can't stop trying to make your stay a pleasant one. From directions to where you want to go, to how to use the LA subway system (Best kept secret to travel!!!!), where to get some food, restaurants, fun things to do, routes to avoid, routes to take, very helpful. Universal Studios main shuttle is 13 minutes from the hotel, the metro subway station is 13 minutes as well, and for a $5/day pass you can travel the whole LA area, the park and ride to the Hollywood Bowl is five minutes from the hotel. In parking alone we saved a bunch! Cannot praise the staff enough, Robert, Luisa, you were great, thanks! The place to stay from here on!
