The Hilton Garden Inn Burbank Downtown hotel is off I-5, and affords easy access to Tinseltown and all its many attractions. Guests of the hourly rooms have on-site dining and a range of local eateries, plus free Wi-Fi, and a fitness center/outdoor pool. Among the many nearby diversions is Los Angeles Zoo, with the iconic Hollywood Sign and one-of-a-kind La Brea Tar Pits and Museum not far off.
All the World’s a Menu – Day room guests can sate their appetites dining on-site, or try local establishments if in the mood for something a little different. German style beer and pub grub is served up at the nearby Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant, whilst Middle Eastern treats including kebabs and hummus are on the menu at Adana Restaurant. Comfort food meets sustainability at Granville, an upscale café that uses sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. Meanwhile, Season Thai Cuisine cooks up traditional Thai fare.
Los Angeles Zoo – Just south of the hotel is Los Angeles Zoo, which has been going for over half a century and today houses over 250 animal species. The site includes extensive examples of flora alongside fauna, with botanical gardens and more than 800 species of plants. Feeding the giraffes is a popular highlight for visitors, and there are plenty of eateries if you need to recharge your batteries.
Star-studded Attractions – Silver screen fans will want to pose for souvenir pictures by the Hollywood Sign or on the Walk of Fame, and there are multiple studios (such as Warner Brothers, Sony, and Universal) that provide tours. Or you can see the waxworks of famous Americans, and others from around the world, at Madame Tussauds Hollywood.
La Brea Tar Pits and Museum – The dim and distant past of the Ice Age is brought into sharp relief at La Brea Tar Pits and Museum. This unique site features fossils from massive animals that once roamed what today is California, trapped in the tar pits and preserved there. This singular attraction also includes a recreated prehistoric garden.
