We stayed in a family suite that has a sectioned off area with bunk beds in it for the kids. This is a great idea as it gives everyone sharing some privacy. There are also TV's in both sleeping areas so no fighting over channels. The room decor may not be to everyone's taste as it is based around California...

Overall my experience was nice, although the noise level of the traffic from outside my room was quite disturbing. The breakfast buffet was good and the atmosphere at The Garland is very nice... old Hollywood. The room prices are reasonable but the parking prices are outrageous at $22 for self parking and $27 for valet. I was only staying one...

We over booked our stay by one night through a 3rd party and the hotel was more than accommodating. We were able to cancel our second night, even though we didn't want to, and we were given a room upgrade for our single night there. The rooms are large and very nice. Only down side was where we were able...

We had 4 days here. Nice room, pool and gardens with very helpful concierge and polite doorman. Free shuttle to universal is a bonus and we used on our day there. I was there 4 days and my electronic key failed every day and needed resetting by reception. Annoying but not the end of the world. Parking is $22 a...

It's been years since I last stayed at The Garland and I couldn't have been more pleased with my recent visit. The hotel has undergone an extensive remodel and looks and feels current and fresh. My queen room with a balcony was a good size with convenient charging stations on the nightstands (located quite neatly in the base of the...

This is a solid place that is inexpensive and in a perfect area for someone visiting LA. The pool is great and the grounds/rooms are solid. This has been recently upgraded and they did an excellent job. We live in Studio City and can verify that this is a great place for a family looking for a central area to...

The grounds at this hotel are very nice and clean. The service was also good. However, the rooms themselves are very small. The walls are thin and you can hear everything through them. We stayed in the kids room, so it was nice to have the bunk beds, yet we still felt the space was quite minimal and the room...

The Garland is a lovely hotel nestled in a garden setting a short drive to Universal Studios. The free trolley comes every hour and is free to hotel guests. The rooms are clean and the setting is second to none.

I love the hotel, the staff, the accommodation and the relaxed atmosphere. I will be back soon hopefully - missing the weather too - UK weather is depressing. The hotel offers various activities and provides shuttles to local attractions. Located in a quiet area.

From the minute I pulled up to this property it was beautiful and clean. The restaurant, pool area, room and grounds were well kept. Trolley over to Universal was a nice touch. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
