“Amazing”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights for my 21st birthday traveling from Australia. I was traveling by myself and it was my first time in the states. The staff were very helpful and offered to assist me in any way I needed. The rooms were lovely and clean and the bed was just amazing! I will defiantly be staying at this hotel again and will recommend to all my friends and family traveling to Los Angeles. Friendly helpful staff, clean cosy rooms, lovely restaurant and a free bus to the station or universal studios! What more could you need! A+ for this lovely hotel! Very happy costumer! Made my 21st truly special! :)

Stayed November 2013, traveled solo

The staff were very helpful. Close to universal studios and the metro train is only a 10 min walk away. The pool area is great and the in house bar and restaurant Decoy is Very good and recommended. The buffett for breakfast had a great selection to choose from.

Plush and beautiful. I was lucky to get this hotel at the rate I paid on Hotwire. Only downside is parking is not free. It's kind of hard to get in and out of drive as its on a very busy street. It is close to Universal Studios theme park. I would stay there again.

Stayed July 2013, traveled on business

Stayed at this hotel with my mother and daughter in October of this year. At first I was worried because it seemed a little dated but it is well taken care of, warm and very comfortable. Friendly staff, very clean, great choices for bar and restaurant. Stayed in a Director's Suite. One of the best values in the area. Close to Universal Studios if that's where you want to be. Free shuttle, very helpful staff. Pool is clean, the loungers are a little retro but that's just being picky. The beds are comfy but the bedding isn't as good quality as some chains, which was about my only complaint.

I was so pleased with everything this hotel had to offer! Although it was out of the main hustle and bustle of Hollywood, I think that added to its charm and provided a more peaceful location. Beautiful amenities and the staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much for them! Gorgeous pool and gym, also offered a free shuttle to universal studios. Very pleased with my stay!

we stayed here for 3 nights.
the hotel is clean and pleasant and at night has some lovely touches with the burning fires and tree lights and water fountain.
we stayed in eldorado.
the room is spacious, clean and the bed very comfortable. the free wireless is excellent. there is a drinks machine on the odd number floors which is handy.the only thing i would slightly criticise is its a bit noisy with the traffic outside as its near a major motorway but it didnt affect my sleep.
the staff are attentive and helpful and make you feel welcome.there is a free safety deposit service at reception.
the shuttle bus is free into universal and is on time and driver is nice.
for the money its a fab stay.

taxi cost from lax to hotel: $80+

supershuttle (recommended) from lax to hotel: $23 each.

Stayed in the Beverly Garland in Sept 2013 and would highly recommend it to anyone. It's a great hotel within 5 mins of Universal Studios and not far away from Downtown Hollywood. Rooms were very clean, and spacious, and staff were very friendly. Lovely location with beautiful pool area and outside jacuzzi. Used room service for breakfast in the morning which was delivered quickly. Food/drink both in the restaurant and through room service was lovely (especially the chicken goujons) and very reasonably priced. I booked a Starline Tour of LA, and Disneyland through Bev; Boutique before my holiday and Terri was very helpful recommending travel methods and booking these trips for myself and friend. Will definitely stay here next time I visit Los Angeles.
