I'm a sucker for old school boutique hotels, and this meets my criteria. I read reviews on it prior to arrival and knew that parking was off site; that they have no elevator and have to climb 32 steps up to the checkin counter, but that didn't deter me because most of the reviews I read were very positive about great hospitality by the staff. The young man who checked me in at 8ish came with me to my car to haul up my suitcase, laptop computer, and cpap machine. He told me that since it was Saturday night, I could park in the Bank of America parking facility behind and next door to the hotel, at least through Sunday. After that, he gave me a hanging tag for parking 2 blks away. There is a back entrance, too, from the alley, the side you park on. I was on the 2nd floor and had 50 steps to ascend to get to the 3rd floor where my room was. My room is small, but the bed is comfortable, and the bathroom & shower are very good. The tv works well & has many channels via DirectTV. It has everything one needs. Cleaning staff do a good job. I will have stayed here 7 total nights. There is an ironing board, a closet to hang clothes in and a chest for other clothes, a small fridge, too. A/C works well. Nicely appointed. Highly recommend this hotel.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Beds were comfortable. We felt safe here. There are 30 stairs up to the front desk and the rooms, with no elevator. My 84-year old mother struggled a bit. (We did not know this when we booked the hotel.) Our room was booked for 3 people but was only supplied with 2 sets of towels. The bathroom door, which is at the foot of the beds consisted of frosted glass panels which let all the bright morning sun into the room with no shade on the bathroom window. There was no refrigerator or microwave, which are amenities we are used to having. The room was very small for 3 people in 2 double beds. No chair to sit in. No place to relax. And there is no lobby to hang out in either. This hotel is in a great convenient area so I would recommend as long as you can navigate stairs well and don’t put more than 2 people in a room.

Stayed at Hotel Brandwood for a 2 week trip to the LA. Extremely comfortable bed, and an abundance of pillows of different weights and softness, which was massively appreciated! A good-sized desk, coffee making facilities and fridge in the room. DirectTV with good reception, along with really good, easy and reliable internet access. The best thing is the location though. Whilst there is no cafe/restaurant in the hotel, you are minutes walk from pretty much any food you could want. Sushi, steakhouses, Italian, burgers (inc. In & Out), and dozens of coffee shops. There is also the amazing Portos bakery/cafe a few doors away which serves a great selection of breakfast and lunch food (you will come back from your holiday carrying a few extra pounds, but it's totally worth it!) I noticed there is also a spa and place to get nails done just next door if you're into that and want to pamper yourself. For shopping, there is a huge range of shops from Bloomingdales to Tiffanys, Apple and other high-end stores just 5/10mins walk. It's also a great central base for getting to studio tours, theme parks and other touristy things LA has to offer.

A beautifully appointed room, with super comfy bed. Small but perfect for 1 or a couple. Great location, only downside is the flight of stairs when you walk in, but staff is happy to help. I would definitely stay here again

Stayed at the Hotel Brandwood for two nights and loved the location which is downtown Glendale with in walking distance of restaurants and shopping. This boutique hotel's rooms are small but clean and comfortable for the price. The baths are clean with real tile walls and nice fixtures with pleanty of really hot water plus the pressure was excellent. I stayed in a king room and the bed was very comfortable with nice sheets. The room has a working desk and an armoire with drawers for your clothes. A mini bar is also available with fairly reasonable prices. Additionally, there is a clothes steamer in the room with is a bit unique. You'll also find two bathrobes for your use but as usual they are small and unusable for me. A small flat screen television is wall mounted with satellite tv and plemty of premiere movie channels included. Now to the cons; There is little to no parking available when you want to check in but there is some public parking in the back alley that is cheap to use when checking in. The hotel does provide overnight parking at the Sears location about a block away. Next, as mentioned in every other review, are the stairs. The lobby is on the second floor of the building and you have to climb some steep stairs to get there and for some lugging luggage up might be an issue. I would suggest checking in first and asking for help with your bags. There a not enough outlets in the room which can make it difficult to charge devices. Then there is the window mounted air-conditioning unit; it is very loud when running and may make it difficult to sleep. This is a known problem because the hotel does provide earplugs in the room. This location does not allow pets and is non-smoking. Finally, for the price this hotel has a great location but it does have some issues and it's not for everyone so check the reviews carefully.
