Just returned from the Hilton Garden and found it perfect for what we needed.
From Australia my husband and I were here for a week whilst doing the theme parks, Hollywood etc all the tourist things and had a vehicle which made it very easy to get around (the traffic in LA however was another story).
Pros: Room was fine, bed was comfy, shower pressure perfect, spa and pool downstairs were great, breakfast was plentyful and heaps of variety including chefs that cook your eggs just the way you like them. Plenty of free parking. We even saw our first squirel running round the trees in the carpark. Staff were extremely polite and helpful. Supermarket just down the road and plenty of takeaways and restaurants in the same area if you don't want to dine in the restaurant which had a great selection of meals.
Cons: I hate to do the cons but there was no tea making facilities in the room, there was a coffee pot which my husband loved me getting up to make him freshly brewed coffee but no jug to boil water or tea bags. There was a microwave so we just went down the local supermarket and stocked up and heated the water in the microwave.
The only other thing was the curtains....there were two curtains on each side of the window that were just there for show. When I went to close them, they didn't as they were only half size and the curtain rod didn't go all the way across. This was disappointing as when you are on holiday you generally like to sleep in and not be woken by the sunlight shining in the window.
Other than that we had a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
