Bathrooms were a decent size, swimming pool and jacuzzi were fantastic and clean. Laundry facilities on site although it was $4.00 to wash one load. Shuttle bus to universal studios was always on time and they stopped at...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 December 2016 via mobile

The Garland is simply a gem of a place to stay in LA--or anywhere. Great history, fantastic people--Jen and manager Mario in the hotel's delightful restaurant The Front Yard were among the friendly and professional staff we encountered--and a refreshingly intimate yet chill vibe, perfectly appointed and immaculate rooms with an enchanting late 60's decor, awesome pool, jacuzzi, lobby fireplace......

Good location for all LA has to offer, good parking and friendly staff. Some useful shops and coffee stops nearby. Rooms were well equipped and nicely decorated. Only negative was noise from the road nearby so not possible to have window open but overall very good

Excellent stuff for the last year trip that was undertaken, near to L.A metro and an amusing local mostly close to other places near Universal. Good for seeing L.A without a car too as bus and metro almost outside, longing to see this place again especially the breakfast/supper bar. Definitely again if ever come back to L.A in the future.

Extremely convienant hotel close to universal. The shuttle was full for the time slot we wanted to take it and although it was coming back shortly to go back to universal, we opted to uber it over. Rooms are great and the entire property is nicely appointed. Happy hour is a great value for a few drinks. All the kids...

We loved our stay at the Garland. It is right off the highway and they provide a free shuttle to Universal Studios. The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable and it was just really nice. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We weren't sure about the location in Hollywood before we arrived, but quickly realised it was perfect for our LA stay. The location felt safe, and was close to Universal, Warner bros tour, Griffith Observatory and with a free shuttle bus to Universal and also the metro where it was only one metro stop to the Chinese theatre and stars....

Loved this hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel has a very cool retro vibe. Very clean and well maintained. A great location for time spent at Universal Studios (free trolley), Hollywood and Ventura Blvd. Would highly recommend!
