Yes, The Beverly Garland Holiday Inn is very close to Universal City - so it's a natural consideration if you're visiting there for the theme park or Citywalk. But it's location (near the convergence of the Hollywood Freeway and the Ventura Freeway), makes it a great location to stay at from while visiting anywhere in the Los Angeles basin. Rooms are clean, and surprisingly quiet (especially considering the freeway proximity!), and priced as a value. Recommended.
