In the middle of nowhere!

egferguson (Hobart, Australia) on Jul 13, 2024

Unless you want to spend several days at Universal Studios and nothing else then this probably not hotel is not for you. It is only around 1km from there but otherwise it's in the middle of nowhere!. There are no shops or sights or parks or anything else to see. It's located way up north of Hollywood so any uber to get near all the action is around 20-30 minutes. You can't really walk to anything of interest. It is right next to the freeway so can here that all night. There are also lots of little children and the pool was packed with them and a movie so not very relaxing at all. Aesthetically the hotel is quite cute, more like a modern twist on a 1970s motel. The rooms are really basic but the beds are really soft and comfortable. Check in staff and concierge and trolly driver were friendly. We didn't look into it enough as we were rushed to find a hotel at the last minute. Otherwise I definitely wouldn't have booked it because it's too far away. Cost was around AU $650 for one night and one room.

The best hotel in LA!

LeachFamily726 (Palmyra, Pennsylvania) on Jul 12, 2024

The Garland is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in! It’s an oasis from the hustle and bustle of LA. I loved returning here each night after a busy day. Everyone we encountered was so friendly and you can tell they take great pride in their hotel! Our room was so nice and clean. The hotel grounds were lovely and well maintained. I was worried about the location, but I had no need to worry. The location was perfect! If you are looking for a great stay while in LA, stay here. You will not regret it.

Best Hotel!

Jenny G on Jul 11, 2024

I stay in many hotels across North American for business and for leisure (on average once a month). The Garland was hands down the BEST experience I have ever had on vacation or for work. The hotel is GORGEOUS, and so much effort is focused by the team on giving guests the ultimate Hollywood treatment…from delicious food and cocktails, to outdoor activities, and even little side tours. They go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. It is well appointed, clean and has everything you would need and want for a relaxing getaway. I loved every minute of my stay here!

Excellent experience all around. Appreciated the managers assistance with a bill mistake and the prompt and friendly fix. Food and service were great. Staff friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend to others and we will return.

The ONLY place to stay in LA

kacy b on Jul 09, 2024

The beds were comfortable and the rooms were cozy. The staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel restaurant was amazing. The food was perfect and so good. The bartenders Adrian and Anthony and the restaurant manager Kenny made the experience wonderful. They were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable on the area and things to see and do. They also made it feel like home. I'll definitely be staying at the Garland any time I'm in the area for their hospitality.
