Families looking to hit up Hollywood will enjoy a stay at this comfortable Marriott property, minutes from the Burbank Bob Hope Airport. The hotel features not one but two outdoor swimming pools surrounded by cabanas and featuring fire pits to enjoy the sunny California days and cool nights. When not swimming, nearby studios such as Universal Studios and Warner Bros., along with the Hollywood Walk of Fame, are highlights of a trip to Los Angeles.

We stay at this hotel two to three times a year to visit family. It’s a nice location to the airport and we do not notice noise from the airport at all. This most recent stay our concierge was revoked and we were “Bonvoyed”. We have been loyal Marriott members for decades and looked up the changes to elite levels. ????And yes, we have been Bonvoyed. ???? We were also placed in the tower closest to the airport for the first time in all our years of staying here. This is the tower without the concierge lounge. This tower is older with tiny bathrooms and not as many TV channels (no HBO). But. There is an airport shuttle! ????
I stayed at here for 2 nights for a work trip, with low expectations after the Sheraton Pasadena. The Marriott surprised me with the amenities and guest services. I used the Concierge Lounge to work on both evenings and observed Oscar treating each and every guest like a Hollywood celebrity. He has an amazing personality, very warm and friendly with everyone, but also respectful. You can tell he enjoys his work and takes pride in ensuring the Lounge is in excellent condition - restocks, cleans, presentable for the next guest that walks in. I would definitely stay here again (and longer).
