Great Retro Modern hotel! Staff is extremely helpful and kind. Great outdoor pool and fireplace, retro touches throughout!
Great location in Studio City if visiting Universal Studios. Enjoyed the free guided tour of the residential neighborhood to the west which featured the Brady house and the first house of the San Fernando Valley. A good selection of eateries on nearby Ventura Boulevard. The hotel itself is an outstanding example of mid-century-modern architecture and decor with an interesting history. It has an atmosphere of a boutique hotel, but with more comfort and amenities. The free shuttle to and from the theme park and metro station is perfect.
Our only suggestion to management was to offer a coffee station in the lobby lounge, but we were informed that this was being addressed.
price for parking, being charged $10 extra for a microwave for my room (I really can’t understand why anyone would be charged for something like that)
Awesome stay indeed!! Such wonderful staff and great accommodations. Special shoutout to The Garland's shuttle drivers and night/graveyard shift room attendant(s). We are definitely coming back... Thank You
Microwave ovens in the room (instead of extra) would have been nice...
