“Awesome Hotel”
Reviewed July 12, 2010

Amazing! right in the middle of downtown Glendale and everything you need is just walking distance like restaurants and malls. The hotel is clean and the room is very pleasant to sleep with. They also offer free coffee, free internet access and HBO. I felt like I was at my own room. We did had a great time here for two days and the hotel staff was very accommodating. We will definitely come back again.

My family and I are from Seattle,WA and we did not know what really to expect in California since it was our first time going there. I was surprised that Brandwood Hotel completed our stay. This entire hotel / facility is very clean and accommodating. Their beds in the room are so comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful especially when you need assistance like asking for extra towels from the housekeepers etc. The location is also convenient for there are lots of restaurants and shopping malls around. Our stay was just awesome I should say! I would definitely come back there in the future.

The room my sister and I had at the Brandwood Hotel was completely renovated with very nice furniture, and the bathroom was excellent. We were told when we booked to park at the Bank of America parking deck behind the hotel and call them. An employee came to our car and helped us with our luggage. There was no charge for parking. The lobby is on the second floor, and there is no elevator, but since they helped us, it was not an issue. This hotel is not for you if you can't do steps. We were told there are plans to eventually install an elevator. Also, the wi-fi worked fine. We stayed at 5 hotels on our California trip, and this was the most reasonably priced. We went to Porto's Bakery down the street for lunch, and we loved it. Everyone was friendly to us at the hotel. It's in a safe area, and it's a short walk to the Americana at Brand.

First, the staff were very nice and very helpful. A smile always breaks barriers and the cheerful and warm presence of the people here will make every traveler come back. I am choosy when it comes to these small hotels but Brandwood surely exceeded my expectations. The room is very clean, at a reasonable price considering the centralized location. The hotel doesn't have an elevator but the comfort and convenience trumps that downside; but hey, the hotel is actually very appealing with that old world European charm. It is nice to find this place in the middle of downtown Glendale I will definitely come back.

And lets just say you get what you pay for. They didn't have an elevator so carry heavy luggage upstairs not fun! The hotel lobby was hot and smelt funny. When I got to my room it reminded me of those scary movies where you know people died in your bed and you were next. If you need a cheap place to stay this is it but otherwise run!

You got be out of you mind to stay in this hotel,
BED BUGS in the beds, all of staff members are gay and always check you out as you are walking by.
The Manger, who call himself the 'Owner" is rude and have no sense of customer service.
I would never stay in this hotel even if they offered it free.

HB339, Manager at Hotel Brandwood, responded to this review, January 27, 2010
Thank you for your review albeit an unpleasant one; please note however that Brandwood Hotel is proud of its courteous staff who work hard to make our guests' stays the most comfortable and most enjoyable. Brandwood Hotel prides itself of our highly satisfactory accommodations, amenities, services and quality people in addition to our central location at the heart of downtown of Glendale. Guests have the right to post reviews if they feel to do so, however, it is unfortunate that some will have to resort to retaliation for refusal of service/s by means of these false claims and discriminatory remarks to Brandwood Hotel management and staff. Brandwood Hotel Management will continue to serve our loyal clientele and future guests as we strive to make every stay one of the best you will have in Glendale.

The rooms are small, but very clean with new furniture & carpet. The bathroom is great--nice tub, good fixtures. OK bed & linens, could be a little softer and a higher thread count. Noise level OK. Free internet is good. Front desk staff was very pleasant.

The biggest negative to this property is the stairs, and there are a lot of them. You will walk up a very long flight of stairs to check in. Then you go back down, drive around the block to park on the 2nd level of the Bank of America parking garage. Walk down to street level and up again to get to your room. Definitely not a good choice if you have a lot of stuff to carry, or if you have any kind of mobility issue. In fact, I would limit luggage to 1 lightweight backpack only for this hotel.

Overall, I would stay here again.
