Close to Burbank's TV and movie studios, the smartly designed Amarano feels like a Beverly Hills boutique hotel, complete with 24-hour room service, a homey on-site restaurant and lounge, and newly spruced-up rooms. The vibe is residential; the look understated (muted beiges and greens). The lobby is a welcoming living room with glass-enclosed fireplace and corners for quiet conversation, cocktails, or tapas. Pillowtop beds are covered in comfy duvets; thoughtful touches include plush bathrobes and hooks for hanging garment bags. Generous work spaces have state-of-the-art lighting, and bathrooms have granite vanities, makeup mirrors, and shelves for storage. An addition in 2012 added new rooms and suites (including nine units with balconies), a much needed saltwater pool and hot tub with cabanas, a fitness center, and a swanky penthouse pad with a private gym.

I could not believe a hotel of this class was in Burbank. We went to see the Tonight Show, quite honestly all the guests seem to stay at The Graciela. It was beautiful and our room was large with the most incredible beds. Food was excellent as well as the staff. Not stuffy, very friendly. Highly recommend this great hotel
