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.

We picked the hotel for location and convenience. The staff was fabulous - attentive and friendly; the room was on the small side but clean and comfortable; Covid protocols were good, we felt safe. Our room faced the road and we could hear the traffic but it was mostly in the background if we kept the sliding door firmly shut.

This is our first time visiting this hotel, and I can say without a Doubt that we will be back for sure. This hotel was absolutely beautiful and every staff at the hotel and restaurant was amazing!! From the beginning when we checked in, everyone was very friendly and made us feel at home. The room was amazing in a king room and the food and drinks at the restaurant, and bar was incredible!!! They even took care of my complaint I had with a taxi services I used to get to universal Studios. If you go, you must, must MUST eat at the front yard. It is the restaurant connected to the hotel, and it is to die for!! There is a saying in Culinary school, that if the food is properly seasoned, there isn’t any need for Salt and pepper on the table. This is extremely true and this food was cooked perfectly every time!! From hear on, this hotel, is no longer a hotel, but our 2nd home away from home!!! This is now and will always be the only place we will stay while in LA, and we will be back and hungry for more!!!! Read less

The hotel is very modern with a 1960’s decor. Here’s what we liked: The lobby and restaurant are both very clean and comfortable to spend time in. The pool and patio are also very nice.

The hotel is very modern with a 1960’s decor. Here’s what we liked: The lobby and restaurant are both very clean and comfortable to spend time in. The pool and patio are also very nice. There are lots of activities offered, including movies at the pool. We had a room on the 5th floor facing the pool, which was lovely. There is a lot of noise from the highway, which is very close by—bring earplugs! The room was spacious, with a very comfortable bed, a counter/table, chairs, refrigerator, nice size closet and lots of mirrors. The bathroom only has a shower stall, which is fine for us, but some may miss a tub. The only things I didn’t like was the bathroom lighting and the glass door to the balcony. We had a lot of trouble trying to open and close the door, and I think they should be replaced. The hotel is within walking distance of a shopping center that has a drug store and grocery store, which is very convenient. We loved having the free shuttle to Universal studios and City Walk.

This hotel is so amazing! I have been here several times just to eat at the quaint, upscale restaurant because of the trendy ambiance and the delicious food. I was thrilled to finally have had the chance to spend the night, and it was the best thing I could have done. It was super romantic and I felt like I had a vacation after just one night. The rooms were spacious and perfect, the grounds were beautiful for an evening stroll or sitting out. The pool area, with its poolside bar, made us feel like we were in another world and the service was all-around phenomenal. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I would highly recommend The Garland Hotel to anyone who wishes to visit LA or even escape the hectic pace of the city. Read less
