A few weeks ago my 15-year old son and I stayed at The Garland on a short vacation to enjoy Universal Studios Hollywood. The Garland is conveniently located 5-10 minutes from Universal Studios. The Garland also has a free shuttle to and from Universal Studios. The Garland is clean and friendly staff. Good fit for a family stay-vacation!

Enjoyed the boutique-style hotel in a nice area, very accommodating. The pool with the nighttime movies was an added bonus for kids. We would stay here again if in LA. Looks as if it had been renovated relatively recently. The restaurant on site was upscale but very good.

This is a very nice, well maintained hotel, but I'm not entirely sure I would recommend it for a business trip. I had the great fortune of traveling for my job during Spring Break, so this was a hot option for families with multiple small children. I'm a mother of a small child, so I normally don't mind children, but...

Great room ambience, generous room size. Very comfortable beds and clean bathroom. Staff were fantastic - was assisted by the pleasant girl (forgot her name, asian) at reception when we checked in late in the evening, housekeeping were also very helpful and prompt with all our requests. We stayed on the 6th floor with a view of Universal Studios, which...

The Garland is a beautifully renovated, charming hotel, located in the Hollywood Hills, very close to Universal Studios...It has so much character and has been designed for comfort and cozy... Rooms were spacious and clean, lobby and restaurant excellent. Staff excellent. The grounds are nicely kept with beautiful old trees....It has a wonderful feel and is a wonderful step back...

In the era of big chains, we could not have been happier to discover this gem of a hotel with such a unique look and feel. The on site restaurant - the Front Yard - was also fabulous & where we enjoyed the best meals of our trip. Great location yet it felt removed from the hustle & bustle. The...

I booked a standard room and paid five star pricing for a first floor jail with a view of the parking lot. The room itself is not worth how much the hotel charges, but the price aside it was not bad. There is lots of storage and modern decorations and the bathroom was large and updated. Though, half of the...

I'm reviewing The Garland on my husband's account. We stayed as a family of four, two children aged 9 and 10. I loved the hotel. It's a really great refurb of an older motel style property and I thought the design was great. It was really family friendly and relaxed without being full of screaming toddlers! We made use of...

Where to start? The Garland used to be a Holiday Inn. Then a few years back the new owners completely made it over. Funky LA with more than a dash of Hollywood. Fantastic reception building with bar and pool. Cinema (family night!) is a hidden gem. Also gym and laundry. The service sparked. Friendly attentive staff. Restaurant GM Mario Leal-Cruz...

We stayed here over spring break to go to Universal Studios and Six Flags. It was in a good location and all the staff was helpful and friendly. They have a daily shuttle to Universal which was convenient. Rooms were clean. Only bummer was that we spent a lot of money while we were here. Coffee was $4.50, parking was...

“Paying more for you does not mean a better location. Ask to be facing the Garland center or pool as these rooms are away from the freeway.”
