We stayed at The Garland for several days during our recent visit to Universal. It looks like it might have been a Holiday Inn property or something like that in a past life, but it's been fully remodeled in a charming retro hip style that fits Hollywood perfectly. I would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago 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......

The staff were friendly. The free shuttle service was brilliant. Took you to the Metro Station or Universal/ City Walk. The Front Yard restaurant, you do pay more, but they pay their staff above the minimum wage. Highly recommend.

The room was poorly insulated and I heard traffic and noise from the pool area. The room was small and the coffee pot had to be moved to a different part of the room to plug in. The bathroom was small and difficult to share with someone else. The pool and outdoor areas looked lovely but it was uncommonly cold...

The Garland had such a cool and groovy mid-century vibe. Truly felt like we were in the middle of the Rat Pack's hey day. Tasteful...luxe...friendly staff...fabulous furnishings. Just awesome. Handy trolley to Universal studios (which is really really close by). Fun pool (with a fireplace next to it!). It will be our go-to hotel whenever we find ourselves in LA.
