HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 December 2016 via mobile

The Garland is simply a gem of a place to stay in LA--or anywhere. Great history, fantastic people--Jen and manager Mario in the hotel's delightful restaurant The Front Yard were among the friendly and professional staff we encountered--and a refreshingly intimate yet chill vibe, perfectly appointed and immaculate rooms with an enchanting late 60's decor, awesome pool, jacuzzi, lobby fireplace......

We were visiting the area to spend a day at Universal Studios. Check in was very easy and pleasant. Our room was very clean and fit our needs. Where our trip went a bit sideways was at checkout when my bar bill didn't show the cash amount my sister put down on the tab. There was a receipt for every...

I was extremely impressed with the overall experience at The Garland. The room was large and clean, the staff was beyond friendly, and the affordable valet parking was a wonderful convenience (and you can call your car each time you need it with a simple text message). On the third night of my stay, I bought a ticket to the...

Yes, good hotel, clean and cool, staff at bar leave a lot to be desired (mar 26) in terms of friendliness. Front desk staff is excellent. Shuttle guy to Universal studios" 7pm Mar 26, makes a point of saying "thank you for tip" when in fact you haven't left one in an attempt to make you feel guilty or something,...

We stayed at the Garland for a short family trip to hangout, tour Hollywood and visit Universal Studios. The property is super cute and comfortable We enjoyed the outdoor "hang out" space by the pool and in the courtyard. The on-site restaurant - The Front Door - was great. You can order their food from the poolside bar and for...

We stayed at the Garland for 5 nights and were delighted with the level of service from the staff. Although the room décor is a bit outdated the room was a good base for us to travel and do a bit of sightseeing. The hotel has a free trolley service to universal studios which was very handy and the front...

This place had such great reviews, and is a little pricey, but we decided to splurge for the last night of our vacation. We only stayed the one night, but it was enough to convince me to look elsewhere next time. I'm always annoyed when I pay a lot for a room and still am expected to pay extra for...
