The Highland Gardens Hotel is located steps away from Hollywood Boulevard (Walk of Fame, Madame Tussaud, Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre etc.). The staff is very helpful and friendly. There are definitely two (or more) types of rooms: The ones near the pool in the inner court, and the ones in the corridor-like building (also facing Franklin Avenue). I am not... More

The hotel is ok. It definitely is great for the location and the free parking and that is about it. The downfall is that there is no elevator. It is only 2 stories tall but still if you have a heavy bag to carry up the stairs that can be awkward. Luckily my husband could carry it. There is no... More

I chose this hotel because I was traveling with the grandkids and wanted to be within walking distance of all the main attractions that Hollywood Blvd offers. This hotel is a VERY short walk to Hollywood Blvd. It also offers free parking. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, except for one older women, who was pretty rude.... More

The best thing about this place is it's close proximity to all of the Hollywood sights and the fact that you get free parking which is really unheard of in this area. Walking into the lobby it feels as though you're walking into any other new or recently recently remodeled hotel. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Our room was... More

I stayed there the third time and it has been again great. Excellent location, room with a balcony towards the pool, garage parking in the basement and most importantly a great and extremely helpful reception team. I will make sure to come back!

Night One: 1:24am. Next door neighbor wakes me up when he starts playing guitar. Quite poorly, I might add. I drift back to sleep and at 3:12am I was awoken again by loud talking by the pool area which ricocheted off of every wall in the courtyard. Oh how nice. A party. I picked up the phone to call the...

2 friends and I had stayed here for 2 nights. The (#108) room (on the ground floor) that we had was on the small side with 2 queen beds. The outside courtyard in the middle of the hotel was very nice suprise. The front lobby had free wi-fi and our stay included continental breakfast. The staff that I had encountered... More

I have stayed here several times and always ask for room # 105. I always get what I ask for at this place, very accommodating and friendly staff. I like 105 because of the history. If you don't already know of this room, then it really wouldn't matter to you. I do and It does to me :) I have... More

After reading reviews of the Highland Gardens Hotel, I wasn't sure what to expect. Imagine my happiness when I arrive at 2pm and room was ready :) It's easy to see this is an older place, trying to renovate and up date their rooms. Ours had a full kitchen w/ microwave and stove/oven. A little kitchenette and great amounts of... More
