We weren't sure about the location in Hollywood before we arrived, but quickly realised it was perfect for our LA stay. The location felt safe, and was close to Universal, Warner bros tour, Griffith Observatory and with a free shuttle bus to Universal and also the metro where it was only one metro stop to the Chinese theatre and stars....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 December 2016 via mobile

The Garland is simply a gem of a place to stay in LA--or anywhere. Great history, fantastic people--Jen and manager Mario in the hotel's delightful restaurant The Front Yard were among the friendly and professional staff we encountered--and a refreshingly intimate yet chill vibe, perfectly appointed and immaculate rooms with an enchanting late 60's decor, awesome pool, jacuzzi, lobby fireplace......

Loved this hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel has a very cool retro vibe. Very clean and well maintained. A great location for time spent at Universal Studios (free trolley), Hollywood and Ventura Blvd. Would highly recommend!

The Garland is now my new favorite in the Hollywood area. The Garland has expertly captured how to make every aspect of a client's experience benefit from the same classy vibration that composes the hotel's look and feel - from the pool (with outdoor movie nights!), to the restaurant (divine breakfast), to the grounds (niches for relaxing everywhere), to the...

We loved that this hotel had a free shuttle to Universal Studios, it made our morning really easy! It is a very well done property as far as decor too. We have two boys- 8 and 10 years old, and they loved staying in the room with the bunk beds. I wish all hotels had this option! It makes it...

Friendly staff, good quite location for a family visit to LA. Tidy rooms and good service. The food at the restaurant for breakfast is above average. Just far enough away from the city and Hollywood, easy drive in to the attractions. Universal studios only 5 mins drive.

We chose the Garland because we were going to Bel Air for jazz one evening, and DTLA for dinner the next evening and it was a central location, especially because we took "Lyft". During the day we walked to Ventura Boulevard, which, offers so much! We were pleasantly surprised that we loved this hotel....we weren't expecting it to be like...

We stayed at The Garland Hotel for 4 nights, we have been travelling since December, Hong Kong , NZ, Australia and now here. This is the worst hotel we have stayed in for service. We asked at the front desk where we can eat in the evening the girls didn't have a clue, we asked for a map of the...
