For a Holiday Inn, it's a reasonably nice place. This review is specific to the Carrington Suite which I would strongly recommend avoiding. For $899/night, you get the equivalent of an older Embassy Suites style standard room (2 queens) and a sitting area with pull out couch that is right on the freeway and extremely loud. The (also very loud)... More

We stayed at The Garland in April 2016 for 3 nights. We have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place - it's fantastic! We were greeted by helpful, polite and courteous staff and our room was in a quiet location as requested. The hotel style is unique and original but with a modern flair too. We ate in the... More

Front reception staff are friendly enough but the facilities are sub-standard. Air conditioning is so choked up with fluff and dust it does not work. Asked to have the filters cleaned or vacuumed so it works properly - didn't happen. Days and nights of being hot-boxed in our pokey room. Housekeeping is inconsistent - sometimes leave coffee/tea, sometimes leave cups.... More

We spent two nights here at the start of our road trip and what a great start it got us off to. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The pool area was also enjoyed by us all for a couple of hours one afternoon when jet lag kicked in, though I agree the drinks were expensive there. We ate dinner... More

The room and the facilities were great. The hotel has everything you can wish for, with a very nice pool area, restaurant, excellent workout room and very helpful and friendly staff. We stayed there three days at the end of our visit to the US and we could not have ended our trip any better. The hotel offers a complementary... More

This was a really lovely and comfortable hotel. The staff were so helpful in getting anything I needed. The decor was very fresh and clean looking, it was a lovely touch. I also loved the pool which had a movie screen and a fire. The pool seating was very stylish and comfy. The poolside bar was a little too expensive... More

I loved this hotel, my boyfriend and I already pre-agreed that if we come back to LA we're definitely going to stay here again. The staff was so much friendlier than all the other places we stayed at and they have awesome shuttle services that run all day for free (to universal and a bus station)!! Also, they have a... More

We stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon and it was a fantastic place to start out trip! The hotel is beautiful, really quirky and the room sizes are good. The pool looked lovely although we didn't use it as we only had a short stay here. The staff were so accommodating and they helped with various questions... More

Our family stayed here recently while visiting Universal Studios. The neighbourhood didn't feel great (we walked to get pizza and felt unsafe), but the hotel itself was aesthetically very nice. The staff were helpful, printing tickets for us, and helping with a booking that we had an issue with. Our room was nice enough, but the sliding door to the... More

Very friendly staff, great food, quiet pool, standard air-con (a bit noisy) so not 5 stars but otherwise recommended. We had one minor issue but they bent over backwards to compensate and everyone was happy When you go to Universal go to Olivander's wand shop in Harry Potter land!
