Nice hotel, staff very helpful. The lifts were a little slow, and the on site restaurant is a bit expensive, but the staff there were friendly and made you feel very welcome. Room was large with a balcony.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

As a luxury travel agent and tour operator, we spend much of time searching for beautiful boutique hotels. Well we've just found another, the Garland, which will be added to our exclusive portfolio. The hotel is perfectly positioned for Universal studios [which we can see from our balcony]. We've opted for a suite which has two separate bedrooms with lockable...

We recently stayed at The Garland on a trip to see our kids in LA. The hotel is beautiful, and our room was great. The grounds are gorgeous, the staff wonderful. The bed very comfortable. The restaurant onsite was delicious, as were the cocktails. Best of all, there were lots of things we could easily walk to while we waited...

Had a 5 day stay in during April 2017. Overall I would recommend this hotel although if I'm honest I was perhaps a little disappointed it maybe wasn't quite as good as some of the previous reviews suggested. No particular moans except the internet was a little hit and miss at times. But a great looking hotel and and staff...

There were lots of choices in LA, but we were so happy with our choice to stay here. Here's why: 1. Great location close to Griffith Park and other LA locations we were planning to visit. 2. Excellent customer service including a very helpful concierge who gave us some great dinner recommendations. 3. The guest rooms are very nicely decorated...

What fun! Barbara Garland's son and daughter have completely remodeled this gem of a hotel into what feels like a ride in time back to the comfort and elegance of mid century modern Los Angeles. Make sure to try to get a ground floor or lower room facing pool as upper & outer stories do get some traffic view/noise. But...

We stayed here as our 2nd honeymoon destination. This hotel is great IF you are going to Universal Studios or city walk as there is a free shuttle that drops off and picks up. The shuttle also takes you to the metro station which we used it for. They didnt pick up from the metro station apart from on request...

Better hotel in convenient location for universal. Good option if you would like to avoid the large chain hotels. Easy to self park. Hotel runs a bus/shuttle regularly to Universal but if you miss it a cab costs around $8. one way. We stayed in a family suite that was expensive and faced the freeway and yes its noisy. Five...

“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.”
