We chose the Garland because we were going to Bel Air for jazz one evening, and DTLA for dinner the next evening and it was a central location, especially because we took "Lyft". During the day we walked to Ventura Boulevard, which, offers so much! We were pleasantly surprised that we loved this hotel....we weren't expecting it to be like...

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......

Tiny bathroom with the smallest bathroom counter I can remember, tiny closet, designer paint scheme in 1950's orange, and a tiny balcony overlooking a freeway! This place is more like a Hollywood set than a good hotel: all front with the minimum possible in real comfort. And what should have been a lobby entrance was shared with a busy restaurant.

From the greeters at the entrance, the reception staff, housekeeping, all energetic and efficient. Our room was lovely, having wide vanity is a plus always. The decor throughout is a added plus. The solid wood pieces are amazing. We will definitely be back. Oh, courteous bartender made an awesome Cucumber Mule !
