This hotel is quite inviting in Koreantown in Los Angeles. It has a beautiful entrance and all night security. There is a small cafe in the lobby that serves a very light fare. We had a double bed room. The beds were not queen size but they were comfortable. The room was also quite small compared to other hotels. The... More

The Garden Suites Hotel is a solid three star hotel in the middle of Koreatown. Very clean. We stayed here one night because we were seeing a concert at the Wiltern Theater (right across the street). We had very limited experience with staff, but they let us check in ultra-early and the check in process took something like 45 seconds.... More

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
