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.

During an extended power outage in my neighborhood, I checked in to The Garland for some refuge. I had often dined in the hotel restaurant The Front Yard but had never stayed there. If it weren't for the ambient noise of the city, The Garland would otherwise be a perfect oasis. The staff was very friendly; the desk clerk and I shared a laugh as she told me that she had already checked-in many of my neighbors. The hotel has a comfortable freshened mid-century look and feel. The room was sealed with a sticker as part of the COVID-19 protocols, as was the in-room refrigerator. The bed was quite comfortable. I would recommend this hotel. Read less

By far a great experience from walking out my car to checking in. I truly enjoyed my stay here. Will be back and recommend to my close friends. COVID-19 safe from top to bottom without a doubt. The pool- the view is just great! And yes it’s by the freeway BUT it is all worth the view and it’s actually quite a nice quiet hidden hotel

It’s my first time staying at this hotel and it was a great experience. The staff is very friendly. Michael checked me he was very informative. I always have 1000 questions and he was able to answer all thousand questions with a great attitude. The hotel itself is a very nice & it’s very clean. This is my second hotel since Covid and they take sanitizing very serious. There was always someone cleaning all the rooms had a special sticker on the door knob so you know that that room has been sanitized. The restaurant at this hotel Front Yard As a very nice restaurant it’s outdoors. It’s a popular spot for locals I recommend to call and reserve a table in advance or reserve thru open table application. I had dinner there I highly recommend the green garbanzo hummus in the jalapeño mac & cheese ( I am a Mac & cheese addict).Overall I had a great time stay there for two days Read less

I was moving away and my friends and I decided to have a going away staycation at The Garland. Every single person there was above and beyond accomodating and friendly and the place was so clean and nice! It is hard to find good customer service in this world, and The Garland are pros at it! I also highly recommend their suites. Nicest rooms ever!
