Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport
Travel Blogs from Burbank
Good morning Burbank. Today is a beautiful LA area day with clear blue skies and mid-70's temperatures - perfect for spending a day at Universal Studios. Before jumping into what may or may not be total madness due to Mother's Day, we decide to boost the energy levels and have breakfast at Bea Bea's on the way to Universal. Bea Bea's is one of …
Good morning Santa Barbara!
There is something special about waking up and being able to just walk across the street to get to the beach on the massive Pacific Ocean. Since it's Saturday the beach is starting to fill up with families going for a beach day, joggers and dogwalkers, as well as various charities doing funding activities. …
The next days were spent in Burbank at the Supernatural Convention.
What I love most about these gatherings is that you meet lots of people who share the same passion.
Of course you get to meet actors and directors from the show, hear little stories from set or private lives. Get your picture taken with them and a signed autograph …
The day had come when I needed to leave Santa Monica. With a heavy heart I took one last walk along the beach and then headed towards my next stop of this vacation.
But not without a short break in between.
I had a ticket for a studio tour at Paramount Studios for early afternoon so I was taking a leisure cruise through Santa …
The trip started out with a little drama. For all the most organised, best laid plans, there is always the chance that something will go wrong. On our way to Heathrow, passing the minicab office we quickly dismissed getting a cab to the airport, trying to start the trip off disciplined with our budget. Unfortunately, at South Ken, the tube slowed to a crawl with track problems. Unsure whether ...

I must admit that this was something of a surprise. Because of my work I get to spend quite a few nights per year in franchise hotels, and often in airport locations so I tend to expect professional but kinda cold greeting, bland overpriced food, a hotel gym barely worth it's name etc - not much to write home about.
Imagine the surprise when we're greeting by a chatty personal and positive front office team when checking in. Our stay was booked on reward points, and for that reason or another we get a junior suite (nice!) which is a first for me unless I have arrived after midnight and would be leaving at the break of dawn. Not to bad to have a good size room for a two night stay. Our first room smelled like a smoker had run a convention in there, so we call the front desk to ask for another room. We expect them to be slow about it and maybe downgrade us, but the room change is done in 5 or 10 minutes and now to a nice and fresh one. Because we're on a 3 week vacation we needed to use the laundry facilities - only one washer driver available at the time, but both worked fast and with good results. Room service dinner was very good; Club Sandwich with a local twist together with an excellent fruit cobbler - all at what we felt were regular prices and with very fast service. The gym is actually worth it's name with a good amount cardio and even better and very good selection of weight equipment - this was actually better than our local gym at home! Cudos for this one!. All in all a very positive experience.
I would say that Marriott Burbank exceeded my expectations in a very positive way. Yes - it's still a franchise type of hotel, and yes - it's next to the airport. But not all great hotels are small boutique type of establishments - they can actually be franchise hotel as well when you least expect it.

Spacious and clean rooms. Heavenly beds, Never have slept that good in a hotel before.
Rooms separated from convention area so that you won't get disturbed. Even though the hotel is directly next to the airport, you don't hear anything.
Some restaurants in the near vicinity, just a few minutes drive into Burbank gives you even more opportunities.
Warner Bros and Universal Studios are also not far away so enjoying some quality time is also no problem.
Staff is always friendly and helpful, even at busy times.
Free Wifi only available in the lobby, which is sometimes a little wacky, so you better have a mobile plan for your device.
For a convention this hotel is very good, especially with the airport right next to it.
I wouldn't recommend it for a LA trip though, since you're dependent on driving and it's taking quite some while to get into the city.

Historical Traveler Reviews Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport
There is NOTHING around this hotel - nothing but the airport. The hotel is at least 20 minutes from Universal Studios. Its at least 10 - 15 minutes drive to get food. Not a very good area. The hotel is a basic 3 star hotel that is dated - very dated - and in need of refurbishment.
The front desk was never much help at anything that was asked of them. This hotel is not up to the Hilton standards that I come to know.
We were very disappointed. Do not stay here unless you want to walk to the airport.
Stayed 2 consecutive nights here in July. Stayed here a few years ago. Location is good if you are using the Burbank airport.
Stayed here one night on business. A nice business oriented hotel. You could almost walk here from the Burbank airport (almost). They've got a Dollar rentacar in the lobby.
Great for business stays
Hilton Burbank is about my second home, I have stayed here so much. This is a typical business hotel. It has spacious rooms, which are a bit outdated. Many meeting rooms, including convention centre. Great restaurant (daily grill). In the restaurant you will find the bar, with superb barkeepers (great when travelling on business alone). 2 small pools. Area is typical industrial. Easy access to freeway 5. Great staff in hotel, always friendly.
Conclusion: A great place to stay when you are for business in the Burbank area.
Was very comfortable
I was surprised at the nice rooms at this hilton. everything appeared new and clean in the room. Convenient location and did not hear any noise from airport. Front desk and bell staff were very nice and accomodating. I would definitely stay here again when in the area on business.
Not up to Hilton standards
The room was not up to the standards I come to expect from a Hilton hotel. The bathroom was not clean and there were burn holes in the conforter. No mini bar or other amenities as noted in the hotels web site.
Our room was a little musty, so I turned on the air conditioning. But it put a weird smell in the air, so I turned it off and opened the window. Window overlooked the pool and east to the Burbank Hills, so it was a nice view, but the window only opened about siz inches. It was chilly and rainy outside so it cooled the room down and gave us some fresh air, but we could only leave it open for a short time before we got pretty cold and the planes drove us crazy, cuz you could hear them take off towards the east over our hotel. Basically, we'd get the jet blast right into our window. OH, and when I tried to sleep with the window open, you could hear the machines on the hotel rooftops running, and the train going by tooting their whistles. The train is CLOSE BY. At night, the planes dont' run past a certain hour. i think Burbank Airport is respecting the residential areas by not operating flights pasta certain hour. But we forgot about the trains, and the trains operate at night so they don't stop up traffic during the day. BUT, the good news is, if you can take the stuffiness in the room, and keep the window shut, you can't hear a thing. The windows are insulated well when closed.
Well, our recent stay here was a mixed bag. Here's a quick review:
I was assigned a suite in the east tower. The room is huge and the hallway is spacious. Staff are very friendly. There is a breakfast room on the first floor for gold and diamond members, otherwise you can always order from the Daily Grill. Though just across from the Burbank airport, I don't notice much noise. Parking is about 9 bucks a day. There is also a fitness room and a swimming pool, and the convention center is next to the two towers. Our stay is a quite pleasant one and will definately stay here again.
Great business & meeting hotel!!
This hotel is convenient for the business traveler. Burbank Airport is so much easier to get in and out of than LAX. The guest rooms are clean and luxurious and the staff were the friendliest I encountered on my travels. The Daily Grill is fantastic and supplies room service 24 hours, what a nice added surprise to my stay. Also convenient to Universal Studios and all the studios in the area.
