The Garland

Hollywood, Los Angeles

The hotel

As a Preferred Hotel Partner of Universal Studios Hollywood℠, you’re just a free shuttle ride from the parks. Yet, once inside this North Hollywood boutique hotel, you may feel a world away. Take in its relaxed retro vibe and comfy style. Eating at the restaurant here is, as they say, like an evening at an old friend's house. Request a table out on the deck for dining amongst the trees and plants, catch up over a drink in a cosy booth in the lounge or grab a seat at the bar. Check out the weekly programme of activities too — you could join a guided walk, watch a film by the pool or enjoy some complimentary wine tasting. All this, just minutes from LA’s hotspots.

I needed a place to stay while repairs were done on my home. So glad I chose The Garland!! Lovely room, attentive staff, delicious food from The Front Yard. Wish I could have stayed longer. I highly recommend it for locals and visitors.

We love The Garland and have stayed here for many years! With new Covid guidelines, this hotel did a fantastic job making us feel safe and went over and above all protocols. SUPER friendly staff! Cleanliness and nostalgic decor are THE BEST!

My husband and I checked into the Garland on the last leg of our honeymoon. Michael at the front desk was wonderful and upgraded us to a better King room and even gave us a bottle of wine. The staff here was very nice and responsive. Rudy at valet was always cheery and nice! Our room was on the quiet side so we didn't notice the highway. The room also had a very faint scent of cigarette smoke. We're not sure if this was from the original brick walls or if someone had been smoking on the balcony. The bed and bathroom were basic but well kept. The location was great! Read less
