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.

When a hotel becomes an experience, rather than just a room to spend the night, it is definately a place to return to again and again! The Garland boasts an extremely friendly and courteous staff anxious to help you enjoy your stay. The food in the Front Yard is unique and delicious, the rooms are squeeky clean and comfortable. The close proximity to Universal Studios is a huge plus and the free shuttle to Universal, leaving every hour, is the icing on the cake. I have lived, worked and traveled around the world and the Garland is one of the very best I've had the pleasure to stay at! Treat yourselves to a memorable experience, you will not regret it!

The Garland Hotel is simply a Masterpiece, from the wonderful staff, excellent food, fantastic pool, and comfortable family friendly rooms. My two grandsons loved the bunk beds and can't wait to visit again. The trolley to Universal Studios was a welcome bonus! If you are traveling for business or pleasure, "The Garland" should be your choice!

Our family has been staying at The Garland for many years now. Each visit is nothing short of extraordinary. The rooms are always clean and maintained, and have the cleanest bathrooms. The pool area is fantastic for both families with kids, or when I'm traveling solo. From the room attendants, front desk staff and Daniel the Hotel Manager, this staff is seriously the friendliest and most attentive- not one ever misses a chance to say hello and engage with us. The restaurant is always consistent and the food is great, and the pool bar is equally as good. The neighborhood tour they offer is fun and a great way to explore Los Angeles via the eyes of a local! The trolley over to Universal is too fun with the kids- they love it each time, as is the movie at night by the pool. Seriously, you cannot go wrong with the hotel and their great team! Read less
