Great location, close to all amenities. Please note that there is no elevator so if you have immobility issues, this would not be the hotel for you. Other than that, fantastic experience and great staff.

I'm usually not a non Marriott girl but costs of hotels in the area were way expensive so I tried Hotwire and landed with a room at the Brandwood. It was way above what I expected! The rooms were clean and quaint. I felt like the beds were comfortable and room was fine in size. There are a lot of... More

I travel to Glendale for business fairly regularly and this is my employer's hotel of choice for staff to stay at. Since I do not have to pay for the hotel myself, I can't pass comment on its value-for-money as that would be hypocritical of me. However, I can comment on the facilities and rooms. The hotel is reasonably well... More

Way better than 3 stars. If you want a comfortable place to sleep or just hang out, this is it. You walk upstairs (WAY UP, so be ready) to Old Downtown Hotel that has been thoughtfully remodeled, the rooms are now contemporary rather than rustic. I would have voted for full restoration, but people prefer these amenities. The little fridge... More

We needed to find a place to stay located in Glendale. We found the Hotel Brandwood and have stayed here twice now. The vintage hotel has been fully remodeled two years ago and is VERY comfortable and clean! It is located right in the middle of downtown and is up a flight of stairs from street level with no elevator... More

Patron beware: this hotel is UP a 24 flight of steps with NO elevator. It is difficult to access especially if you are carrying a suitcase. Great location, on the main drag, a block from the famed Galleria. Parking is behind the hotel, in the B of America parking lot. It was well lit at night, however, the back door... More

The broke down old mattress and boxspring completely collapse into a soggy sunk in mess, making it impossible to sleep. The front desk could care less, but will upgrade you for another $100.00! Never mind that the parking is a long walk away, you have to climb several fights of stairs, the bathroom and shower are phone booth size, The... More

Let me just start by saying that every year my husband and I visit LA and every time we stay at the Brandwood - 4 years in a row, I think. This year was a real disappointment. It is still a nice enough hotel and the location is good for getting around LA. It's not right in the centre but... More

The parking is not at-site, it is sears parking and they provide free pass. it is quite far & expect a good walk and climbing 20 30 stairs. 3. as soon as we checked-in and went to the parking, we...
