The rooms are nice, as is the pool and common areas. You pay dearly for parking at this hotel ($20+ a night). They grant way too many spots for valet parking.

We are a family with two boys at age 10 and 12 years. We stayed at The Garland for three nights during our roadtrip in California this summer and we were very pleased with this hotel. We especially appreciated the location, close to the Universal Studios, the free shuttle and of course the 70’s retro looks that were very well...

I stayed here in a twin queen room with my mum. We asked for a room close to the elevator so she wouldn't have to walk too far, they were very accommodating.

I stayed at The Garland for 15 nights, so got to know the hotel pretty well. The rooms are great, clean and a very comfortable bed.

The Garland is a lovely hotel. We stayed for three nights and found it to be a luxurious experience with excellent service, a beautiful room/hotel grounds and lovely food. We ate in the restaurant on one of our nights and also had room service when we first arrived. The food was very good quality and fairly reasonably priced. The rooms...
