Hotel Review: Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in Los Angeles

My husband has always wanted to go to Universal Studios with me so for President’s Day weekend he bought the Universal Studios Package from Palma transfers. The package came with one-night deluxe accommodations at the Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in Burbank, CA with a choice of one king-sized bed or two double beds, two tickets to Universal Studios, and a breakfast for two at the Daily Grill which is conveniently located at the first floor of the hotel. The package was around $270.

We called Marriott and asked for more information about the package and we were told from the beginning that the hotel was under renovation so if we decided to cancel that would be fine. Of course, we didn’t. They were only doing renovations at the lobby and the pool area so that didn’t make any difference at all. Plus it was too cold to get in the pool anyway. So we headed up to Burbank.

The hotel was conveniently located right next to the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank. There are also fast foods and restaurants around the place close-by. There’s even a Fry’s a couple of blocks away from the hotel. Universal Studios is actually five to six miles away from the hotel. Hollywood is only seven to eight miles away and Beverly Hills is about eight to nine miles away from the hotel. So like I said, the location is perfect.

When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed by the receptionist and was checked in immediately into our room. They confirmed the reservations and told us that they will have the tickets to Univeral Studios delivered to our room. We headed to our room and it was very nice. Well, I was expecting it to be nice since we were paying almost $300 for the package.

Like I mentioned above the hotel has a pool and spa on the first floor and a restaurant called the Daily Grill. The hotel also has a coffee shop that brews Starbucks Coffee, for the coffee lovers, and a gift shop right next to it.

Our experience with the hotel is great. Even with the renovations going on, the hotel was still perfect. We didn’t hear any noise whatsoever and the bed was very comfortable. We had breakfast at the Daily Grill the next day which was taken care of. The hospitality was great. The manager even checked up on us while we were waiting for our breakfast.

Yes, it was a bit pricey but it was a nice weekend getaway. The hotel is located at 2500 Hollywood Way Burbank, CA 91505. You can reach them at (818) 843-6000 or you can find out more information about the Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel and Convention Center or other Marriott hotels at
