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.

It was 110 degrees last weekend in LA so we headed to the Garland and spent the weekend by the pool w drinks plus an AC room. Had a VERY relaxing time. Felt very safe w Covid and they restricted number at pool.

We asked to check out a little later so we can try and sleep more, but it wasn't allowed. Read less

I have worked in hospitality my entire life and first time ever to Hollywood and let me tell You, the Garland did not disappoint!! From the first step in door, Jackie and Kenneth made me feel Like I was coming home from a day at office. Once settled in, the vibe was so cool and team at pool bar, Byron, Connor ,Julio and Liz Always remembered my name, offered suggestions from one awesome menu(chef knocked out of parm) and made me feel like I was in my backyard at the pool. I plan on coming back with family as they will love it! Hard to believe you can travel 3000 miles and feel like your home!!! Cheers to all mentioned and this is the place To stay in Hollywood as they made me feel like I was the star!!! Read less

Impeccable service. Extremely safe in times of COVID. Everyone was so pleasant,positive, and jovial. From the front of the house, to house keeping, to maintenance. Very professional. Would definitely return.

I stayed for 9 nights and every part of it was amazing! They have a wonderful pool, room service and a balcony for each room. Everyone was polite and it was so clean and sanitized! Definitely recommend! The city walk is super close by as well! Love love love!
