All i can say what amazing hotel. it was my first time in LA. I stayed at the Garland for 4 nights in January 2023. we really enjoyed our stay here. Staff are excellent. very helpful. We used the free shuttle bus to Universal Studios and City Walk which i think is great service from the hotel. this hotel got a really nice vibe to it. our room was near the back of the hotel. the room we couldn't fault. it had everything we needed. not much outside the hotel. There is Starbucks and few shops 10 minute walk away. We used Uber to get about which was cheap.
Would i stay here again? oh i cant wait to go back.

The hotel is lovely. The location may put people off but using the free cable car to the metro station this opens up Los Angeles area to you. Universal Walk way is a lovely way to spend a day/ night without paying for entry in to the park. If you walk out to the left there are some restaurants/ shops.
The staff are brilliant; pop into see Maddie in the Store she will assist you in planning your visit & give you the best advice.
Bedrooms are lovely with very comfortable beds & very clean.
Loved the decor - very Californian!
When on metro - watch out for the homeless - no one bothered us but was slightly scary.
Overall, loved our stay at the Garland & in LA.

We enjoyed our three-night stay at the Garland. Our room was quiet and had everything we needed. We were able to park very close by. We had dinner in the FrontYard which was excellent. We also had a light meal from the lobby bar which we enjoyed.
There is a free shuttle to Universal and the metro station which is one stop from Hollywood Boulevard.
The one disappointment was that I asked the best way to get to SoFi stadium and concierge had to look it up on the internet which I could have done myself. What I wasn’t told, but fortunately found out for myself, was that I could use the shuttle bus to start the journey. I had been recommended an Uber!
Oasis in LA

I stayed at The Garland for 6 nights at the end of December and New Year with my partner and young daughter. We were visiting LA from the UK for a sightseeing break as we wanted to visit the Warner Bros studios for a special holidays tour and Universal studios for NYE.
We had lots of fun in LA but found parts of it, like the metro and downtown area to be quite intimidating. The Garland felt like a safe haven to escape from the hectic city. We loved the quirky and unique decor.
We stayed in the El Dorado building in room 313 opposite the lift. I was worried about noise from the lift and road but the room was quiet and we slept well. The room was large, clean and comfortable. It was very convenient to have the bar, restaurant, pool and shop on site.
The area surrounding the hotel also felt reasonably safe and we walked to nearby shops and cafes (recommend Vivian’s millennium cafe for breakfast and City Wok for dinner) . As we did not have a car, we used the regular trolley service a few times, which was really handy.
All the staff we encountered were so friendly and helpful. Breakfast at The Front Yard restaurant on site was so good and kept us full until dinner time.
If we ever return to LA then I wouldn’t hesitate to book The Garland again (we did a package through British Airways).
Remarkable in every way!

The Garland welcomed me before my arrival and the warmth and friendliness I encountered over my 3-day stay were remarkable. The property is charming from the lobby area to the pool and bar to the delicious and vibrant restaurant, with options to eat inside and out. The rooms are well-appointed and comfortable in every way. Even the Shop is special with items carefully chosen from California that are varied and responsibly created. The location is easy and quiet. Above all, the Staff is caring and helpful in every way!! Even the price is user-friendly and the hotel's collection of Toys for Tots was a first for me--it reveals the ethos guiding this remarkable property. I look forward to my next visit.
