... After leaving Hollywood we headed to Beverly Hills via Sunset Strip where we saw the infamous Viper Rooms, Whisky a Go Go, the Laugh Factory and the Beverly Hills Hotel where Whitney Houston died. None of these sights are particularly life changing experiences in themselves I grant you but they all have their little place in history and they seem all the more real for having seen them up close. Another time we'll do Sunset Strip at nighttime which ...

Joe was a close college chum at Maryland, from Valley Stream NY, same town as an old college flame, Ralph, whose name has come up quite a bit this trip. Joe was even a roommate at one point and Billy is right! (well, Always!) Pulling some of those names out was pretty funny and remarkable, given that our college days were times very unfriendly to brain cells! Joe was, and still ...

I redeemed United air miles for codeshare partner Lufthansa's Business Class on the outbound flight, and Global First Class on the return. This was definitely miles well spent; well worth the extra comfort on this lay-flat seat for the 11-hour flight to Munich, Germany, with a connecting flight to Paris.

As we stayed out nearly the whole day, we got our first taste of LA traffic by coming home around 530pm. Seriously, there must be like one billion cars here...how are 10 lane freeways just completely jammed?
Have writer's block so Ollie out.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Los Angeles North/Glendale & Executive Meeting Ctr
I booked this hotel through the Hilton 1-800 number. I explained it was a buisness trip, but they somehow booked me for the weekend instead of during the week. When I arrived they said they were fully booked for the rate I had, but they could give me a lesser quality room for the same rate on the second floor. When I arrived at my room the toilet had dried brown matter stuck all over the bowl. I complained and they sent a maid to clean it. She explained the toilet had backflowed a few days ago and they had taken the room out of service for a few days. They were not supposed to release this room.
Nice executive style hotel. Clean and comfortable. I had a non-smoking room on the 12th floor, and stayed for 2 weeks, on a few nights i could smell cigarette smoke coming through the vents - a bit annoying. Also, the hilton workers were protesting low wages, no insurance, etc., outside the hotel - quite the spectacle. Everything is "hotel" expensive - room service was bordering ridiculous, fancy names don't warrant expensive prices. There are a couple of pretty good restaurants right behind the hotel (Conrads and QQ Buffet & Grill). There's an italian place across the street, very expensive but the staff is fun and the host/owner sings opera (the occassional verse here and there, while doing his thing). There is a huge (and i mean huge) shopping complex/mall down Central Avenue. It was very RESTFUL and QUIET at nights which is my main concern.
The Hilton Los Angeles North/Glendale & Executive Meeting Center is one of my favorite hotels in the greater Los Angeles area.
Overall, we enojoyed our stay at the Hilton Glendale.
Good hotel, Good location
Best thing about this hotel is the location. Easy access to many major highways and the LA area. The hotel has everything you would expect EXCEPT complimentary internet access ( they have it but you have to pay for it ). We have stayed in smaller hotels and B&Bs all along the California coast which provide free high speed internet access. Why not a massive hotel chain like the Hilton?
This excellent high-rise hotel reminded me quite a bit of the Hilton Executive Tower in Portland, Oregon. The hotel is quite easy to get to from Burbank airport or downtown Los Angeles (use the I-5 and 134 freeways). This hotel is located in the best part of Glendale, across the street from the Nestle corporate building. Parking in the garage was about as easy as can be. The rooms are nicely appointed and maintained, and the bed is great. I only had four small quibbles/issues: there's a lot of weekend traffic noise on Glenoaks Boulevard from young people driving their parents' SUVs and powerful trucks - Glenoaks appears to be a "strip" for these drivers; the ice machine on my floor barely worked the first evening and gave up the ghost on night two; the white towels seemed to have some strange colored spots on them; and the bed linens were not changed on a daily basis. Putting the responsibility on the guest to find a request card for new linen, which must be placed on a pillow, seems to be a strange policy for a higher-class establishment to follow. Change the sheets everyday, please! Other than these minor issues, this is just an excellent place to stay. I look forward to further visits.
We stayed at this property June 10 & 11, 2005, and were very pleasantly surprised. We've stayed at the Courtyard in Old Town Pasadena for the past few years while in town but shifted to this hotel because they could guarantee a non-smoking room. The hotel is a couple blocks north of the 210 fwy and is within a few blocks (I'd probably still drive, but that's the southern Californian in me) of the Glendale Galleria and tons of wonderful restaurants in a wide ethnic variety and a few "chains" which remind me of SoCal (Islands for the best burgers).
Nice Hotel Indeed
I stayed at the Glendale Hilton monthly for business since the beginning of 2005. I got a good rate for a room on the executive floor, including full buffet breakfast, access to the Skyline club on the top floor for a drink or evening appetizers, great mountain view, complimentary water, etc. High speed Internet (Ethernet connection, for a daily fee), plush down comforter, daily mint chocolate... The rooms were large, double or King, and the entire experience safe and comfy.
A good base for LA
This hotel is well placed for all areas north of LA. Go for the executive room upgrade, at a very reasonable price you get large rooms, access to a lounge on the 19th floor with fab views and nightly hot and cold snacks. A superb breakfast is also included. The hotel is immaculate, service is superb and the hotel has a good gym and heated outdoor pool and hot spa. The area feels very safe and is 2mins from the freeway. Whilst there are reasonable 'American' family restaurants a short walk away, lively Pasadena is only a 15 minute ride by car providing access to good shopping, history and good restaraunts. We loved it and would highly recommend this Hilton.
Extremely clean, spacious rooms
The room met all of our expectations and was very quiet. Well designed, easily accessible parking area for the handicapped. Would highly recommend.
