They offer a free shuttle to universal all day everyday every hour and to the metro station. Fabulous staff and service. Everyone was so helpful.

Cool, chic, updated to a hipster feel boutique hotel. Clean rooms, nice pool, good food, and very friendly staff made our stay really good. It's close to LA freeways so you will hear the traffic from most rooms, though the thick glass doors helped immensely. My family had no trouble sleeping. The food at the onsite restaurant was surprisingly good...

“Paying more for you does not mean a better location. Ask to be facing the Garland center or pool as these rooms are away from the freeway.”
