The Beverly Garland was the best hotel of our trip! The rooms have a modern decor, are clean and quiet. Our room was facing the Hollywood freeway and we couldn't hear it unless we opened our patio door. The noise from the highway did not stop us from sitting on our balcony to take in the views of the Hollywood hills. This hotel is great when travelling with children. The close proximity to Universal and the shuttle provided was very convenient. They also provide a movie by the pool every night.

The BG is a great hotel, with a nice, modern design (lovely change from the usual beige-and-carpet feel of most US hotels). Although the hotel is quite big, reception and staff are very friendly and welcoming, both at the desk and at the pool. Rooms are big, with great and modern bathrooms.
We also really liked the food and service in the adjoining restaurant, breakfast and dinner were excellent and at reasonable prices. I'd definitely stay here again!

Service is always fantastic. The staff are very professional and accommodating. The new movie nights at the pool are a lot of fun. A bus goes to Universal studios and the metro, which is very helpful. The new lobby remodel looks great.

My Family and I originally booked to stay for 4 nights at the Beverly Garland in Los Angeles but we extended it to 5. This is a beautiful hotel with a contempory feel to it. Our rooms were newly renovated with an orange and grey decor theme. We loved it here and didn't want to leave.

Staff were very friendly and helpful to our needs. Warren's Blackboard is a great restaurant/bar and it has a fantastic breakfast buffet to offer.
Their shuttle service to Universal/CityWalk was a fantastic bonus to our stay here. We stayed in several hotels on our Holiday in California but this one was our favourite.

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Not everything was perfect, but the good more than outweighed the bad.

Its not the most modern hotel, but it was really nice, and the room was great. We had an issue with the bathroom sink, (the overflow pipe was disconnected resulting in a wet floor) but it was quickly mended.

They have a nice pool, and while we were there they had a big screen showing family movies by the pool which meant a nice family atmosphere by the pool in the evenings.

There is a very handy shuttle bus up to Universal studios, and which can drop you off and pick up at Universal city Metro station too. Just make sure to check with the driver about pick ups as some drivers only called to the Metro by request.

It also a short bus ride up to Warner Brothers studio, although when given a timetable and directions for the bus up, the concierge didn't think to give information for the return.

Parking is $19 per night - watch out if this is an issue for you

Room Tip: Check with the driver if using the shuttle bus from Universal city Metro station - we generally watc...

Thank you very much for your review. We are glad that you took advantage of the wonderful amenities that we offer at the Beverly Garland. We know the parking can be pricey in LA, though we keep it comparable with the other hotels in the area. We hope to have you back soon. Safe travels!

This hotel is definitely a throw back to old Hollywood. You can smell (not literally) old town glory as you walk the grounds of this historic hotel. I have been coming to Hollywood for 20+ years and never thought to stay here because I was always afraid of it's age and that the Holiday Inn took it over. Must say I was pleasantly surprised. It was clean and a pretty cool place and for my business all being in Burbank and Universal City it couldn't be more convenient. Had a nice little bar as well. I didn't eat in the restaurant it use the pool so I don't know how they are but I would think on par with what you would expect. I would stay here again.

We appreciate your wonderful description of our hotel. We are no longer part of the Holiday Inn franchise and run independently since December 2013. We hope you’ll join us again soon, and hopefully have a chance to enjoy our restaurant and pool next time.

We stayed here for two nights whilst travelling between San Fran and San Diego and I loved it! The hotel had an amazing sophisticated feel about it and the room, which looked brand new, was gorgeous. I didn't sample the pool area but my husband and son did and they said it was great. Didn't get to catch one of the movies they show in the evenings by the pool either but sounded like a great idea. Warrens Blackboard was fab, breakfast buffet had amazing choice and was good value for money. All in all a great stay, would definitely stay here again if ever revisited area.
