Beware! I booked this place as a Express Deal on Priceline. You don't find out the hotel until it is booked. Only knew it was a "3 Star" Hotel. Surprise! This place has NO elevator, it is three stories, No Guarantee for a ground level room. My friend has had a knee replacement and is waiting on the other to...

If you like the New York Vibe you love this hotel. The room was big the restroom was big the decor was from the 19 thirties. Read the reviews they're accurate about this hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable with plenty of pillows. The staff was very friendly. The location was great on Grand Avenue close to plenty of restaurants...

We are on night #6 for this hotel, so have gotten to know it well. There are definitely cons to the hotel, but there are pros too. Pros: - If you love historical buildings, this one has been lovingly restored and is very tastefully decorated. The furniture is beautiful, the colors are neutrals and very peaceful. - Probably the biggest...

The restaurant in the hotel has closed. That should be shown on their website, in reservation confirmation, and on TripAdvisor. I chose the hotel so we could have dinner after our flight. The hotel has some charm and was well-located for us. Very nice reception desk staff and cleaning staff. Very small room -- no desk, no real chair to...

I have a vague memory of this hotel as a flophouse, but like most places in Glendale, it's been gentrified. Now a charming hotel with small but clean rooms and remodeled bathrooms. The photos of old Glendale in the lobby are great, as is the overall nostalgic feel.

I don't mind this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I hated the stairs and taking our luggage up to the room and disliked the mattress. It was really strange, not too comfortable. I've noticed that others mentioned problems with parking. To be honest, the parking lot is literally behind the hotel and if you can carry your...

Hotel is charming, but dated and all rooms are up a very steep set of stairs with no elevator. Carpets are old and worn. I would not recommend that anyone stay there that is not in good enough shape to hike up and down a lot of stairs.

Decided spur of the moment to do an overnight in Glendale and needed a reasonably priced hotel. Found this jewel hidden right in Brand. Beautiful rooms and comfortable beds. Quiet as well. My only issue was the stairs. I have a hard time climbing stairs. Other than that it was extremely nice for the price. Restaurants all around and shopping!...

Not a bad hotel if you're in Glendale for a couple of nights. The rooms have a hint of an old fashioned character about them if a bit dusty. Everything worked and the shower and bathroom were quite spacious. There is a daunting flight of stairs immediately through the front door. But if you hang around at the bottom for...

If you or someone you're traveling with are unable to navigate a flight of stairs DO NOT stay at the Hotel Brandwood - and stop reading now. Everyone else please continue lest you miss out on a little slice of SoCal charm. I blind booked a two night stay in October based on price, star rating and location and I...
