This was a really nice hotel situated not to far from Hollywood! But you will need to get a car to move around. The hotel staff are really friendly and well manned. Room and bathroom were very clean and tidy. Good breakfast buffet, lunch and dinner. They also had a shuttle bus to Universal Studio's + plus other locations on... More

This was our first time at The Garland, and we were staying 4 nights. From the moment we checked in, to the times we were served by the pool (Bayron?), to the times I asked for advice from the girls and guys at reception (Angel?), we were always treated with unforced and very natural friendliness, and great courtesy. The hotel... More

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights with my wife and teenage daughter in early August. The hotel is in a lovely quiet location, with shops not too far away to walk and an excellent free shuttle to Universal Studios and the LA Metro (Red Line) which takes you to Hollywood boulevard in 3 stops and then on to...

Hotel room was a little small but had everything you need. Fridge to store drinks, we were there a week so it was handy! Only problem with the room was that our key kept not working so we had to go back to reception each time! I think it was because we were in the Devils room! (666! Although they... More

The Garland is an absolute gem in North Hollywood. We were treated like Royalty by a superb staff. High level of cleanliness and a very comfortable room. The restaurant is named The Front Yard and excels in serving delicious meals. Good shuttle service to the metro and the hotel is close to major attractions. We found the hotel a charming,... More

We were in LA for 5 nights (more than enough) and the hotel was definitely one of the highs of our trip. The free shuttle bus to Universal Studios was excellent, we also used it to go out eating to city walk. The bus can also drop you off to the metro which is a 15mins walk away. The staff... More
