Disneyland Resort
The Garland Review
May 28, 2019
Author: Livia Taylor

A little bit retro, a little bit Mission style, The Garland Hotel is a lush gem in downtown Los Angeles. Its location just one mile from Universal Studios Hollywood is one of many reasons we love this hotel for business trips and family vacations.

The Garland Review

The Garland resides on seven acres of property that caught the attention of actress Beverly Garland and her husband Fillmore Crank in the 1970s. They fell in love with the locale and decided it had to become a place where loved ones could gather. Thus The Garland Hotel was born.
