The location of this small nonsmoking hotel—on Burbank's main drag—is handy, especially for those on studio business because it's a straight-shot mile from NBC and 3 miles from Warner Bros. However, this setting also translates into traffic noise, as guests have noted. Newly renovated rooms are decked out in neutral palates, with rain showers, flat-screen TVs, triple-sheeted beds, with nightly turndown, in-room Starbucks single brew coffeemakers, and granite-tiled
bathrooms. Additional perks include free Wi-Fi and parking; use of the pool and fitness center next door at the hotel's sister property, the Safari Inn; and 24-hour room service from on-site restaurant and bar Olive's Bistro. The hotel offers complimentary transportation to nearby studios.

I had booked this hotel via Priceline 2 months prior and confirmed my reservation the night before our intended stay. Upon arrival (at 3:30 p.m) we were told "sorry, we're sold out". I had printed out my confirmation and they said we could stay at the motel across the street (one step up from a Motel 6). Met other people in the lobby who also had this experience. The manager even admitted that "this happens all the time". No offer to compensate or
refund my money. Beware!
