How to Get There
We only stayed 2 nights but there were 6 then 8 of us.
You feel as if you are in a beautiful amazon type area with lovely rooms, open balconies and great hotel. The service was excellent, the food especially the breakfast I would highly recommend. Free shuttle service to the bus station or metro. Next door to Universal Studios. The hotel is suitably a little bit away from all the noise but one metro station away from Universal Boulevard. An excellent choice for us. Nice pool although we did not have a chance to use. Very good facilities for children too.
this was our first stay at the Garland and it was very good. The service was excellent, rooms, clean and tidy and the food top notch, must have the buffet breakfast, it will keep you going all day!! Great spot for visiting L.A.
We stayed here for 3 nights when we first arrived in California. We had two rooms which were both clean, comfy and a good size. The location was great for Universal Studios and getting to the usual tourist sites, Walk of Fame, Beverley Hills, etc. We didn't eat in the restaurant as it seemed very expensive in comparison to others in the area and the bar was also expensive but we did expect this, we did find a great place for breakfast just a short walk away! The hotel has its own cinema and they screened the England v Croatia world cup semi final for guests, which was great as well as disappointing! Great free bus service to Universal Studios and very helpful reception staff.
Upon arrival at this hotel we received a lovely welcome from the valet, over the time we were there we find that he was the only friendly face that we would encounter on our stay. Positives for this hotel are its proximity to universal studios and the pool and its movies each night (Finding Dory, Caspar and the Lego Movie while we were there), the gym is a great facility if you have to to use it.
Unfortunately there were way more negatives for us, and we would not consider this hotel on future trips to LA. Prior to our arrival we had driven across from San Diego and our most sensible decision perhaps was not to go on the jet boat ride and get completely soaked just as we left. On arrival in our room at the Garland we changed, placed our wet clothes on the balcony in the warmth and headed out to explore the hotel and get food.
We had a lovely tea at universal city walk and went back to the room to grab our swimming things and head to the pool, only to find a snotty note about how our wet clothes drying on the balcony were spoiling the visual look of the hotel. We had been there for 3 hours! This was also a slight annoyance to us due to the fact that our room was below lobby level (try to avoid getting a room in the 100’s) so not on view to the road or any other residents (we overlooked the rear car park). I do not take kindly to the cleaner entering my room and placing damp smelly clothes back in the room each time I tried to get them dry. Also the room above ours continued to dry soaking wet clothes on their balcony throughout their stay, despite the fact that it dripped down so much that they flooded our patio constantly!
Seeing as they were so hot on the drying clothes on the balcony situation, they did not monitor safe behaviour in the pool or consideration in the laundry room (yes we did intend to wash and dry our clothes elsewhere once we knew where to go to). Children were left in the pool to dive in, bomb (into the jacuzzi) whilst parents were no where to be seen. Laundry was left in machines for hours after they had finished despite only 2 machines working - inconsiderate.
The bar snacks were lovely, but extremely expensive. For 2 kids pizzas, a chicken wrap and a burger with 4 drinks the bill was in excess of $100.
Once again, as we left the valet was extremely helpful and considerate, and remained the friendliest member of staff that we encountered in 4 days!
The Garland Hotel is located in the heart of North Hollywood, near Universal Studios and walking distance to several restaurants, cafes and shops. The rooms have all been remodeled so are new and clean. There is a lovely park with daily yoga and/or activities including a walking tour of the neighborhood which includes viewing The Brady Bunch house and movie nights. The Front Yard, the onsite restaurant is outstanding? The pool area and bar and wonderful as well. Free Wifi throughout. We will definitely stay again!
