Service is bad!! That's all I'm going to say because I can write a book on my awful experience staying here. I do not recommend any one staying here! WiFi all terrible and rooms need a make over. Especially my room that had a noisy alley looking outside my window.😠

I booked the Garden Suites to stay at while attending a weekend conference. It was easy to find located just off of Western Avenue. The underground parking with elevator directly to the lobby was very convenient. Free parking. The lobby was quite beautiful. The staff were friendly and efficient and let me check in a little before checkin time. The... More

Wow. Where do I start? I don't think this hotel is worth 2 stars. Rooms are small, no night stands , two plugs in the whole room. No plugs next to the bed so I have to sit on the edge of the bed to look at my phone. I don't think the A/c works because I was sweating my... More

L.A. is expensive and this hotel was a great value. Most hotels, restaurants it is hard to find great value. This was a steal! Free parking, room was clean (and I have been a Director of Housekeeping for over 8 years). Everyone friendly. Room check-in was fast. We were given a nice room. I checked out on March 15th...my girlfriend... More

I stayed in this hotel a year ago and just booked it again. People that complain about this hotel are whiners and/or high maintenance. This hotel is what it is, it's at a good price, has free parking and is a good location as tourist trying to go out and do things within LA. It's also near yummy food. It's... More

I apologize if you've already seen this review, I'm combining two accounts into one and did previously post this review. In June of 2014, I stayed at the Garden Suite Hotel and actually really liked it! As a female traveling alone on business, it's hard to find a hotel that isn't sketchy with a small budget, but I never felt... More

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I spent one night there and it will be my last ever. Hotels,com told me it was a three star hotel. I thought I could survive one night if it did not meet my expectations and it did not. I was misled by an outsourced customer service rep who recommended it to... More

Hotel: The cleanliness and appearance upon entering the hotel was beautiful and location was convenient. Loved the lobby. Room: Stayed in a standard King and was quite surprised how small the room was. The bed took up most of the room, very little space to move around for two people. The carpet needs replacement as there was hair and other... More

The location of the hotel is convenient for public transportation (metro). There is also a Ralph's supermarket opposite the property. The rooms are satisfactory although they could benefit from a replacement of the carpets. We stayed there twice, the first time in the standard room and subsequently in the deluxe room. The receptionists were placid, neither cheerful nor unfriendly, just... More

Beautiful hotel, large beautiful room with all facilities, very clean and very close to train for easy access to Hollywood and surrounding areas. Breakfast wasn't great and bar staff not very friendly but may be due to language barrier but reception staff very friendly and helpful. Would defiantly recommend this hotel for the price
