A hotel with true Hollywood roots, The Garland is named after the late, critically-acclaimed actress Beverly Garland and offers a Southern California escape with a 70’s-style vibe reminiscent of the Mad Men era. Nestled amongst some of LA’s most iconic landmarks, the boutique hotel recently celebrated its 50th anniversary and is home to 257 guest rooms including 14 suites - inclusive of dedicated Family Suites and Wellness Suites, complete with an in-room Peloton and Mirror. Guests will also enjoy a chic Lobby Bar that serves a rotation of inventive cocktails and a dedicated Martini menu (Beverly Garland’s drink of choice); a buzzy pool scene; and the beloved neighborhood restaurant, The Front Yard, which serves an elevated menu that represents the LA food scene with an expansive outdoor dining patio and the hotel’s very own wine label, Sky Ranch Rosé, created in celebration of the property’s milestone anniversary.
Serving as a one-of-a-kind urban retreat, The Garland was built by Beverly Garland’s husband in 1972, quickly becoming an escape for movie stars and rock and rollers alike. From Dolly Parton to Kurt Cobain, the Eagles and Alice in Chains, The Garland was an oasis for Hollywood legends. It is even rumored that Kurt Cobain proposed to Courtney Love on the hotel’s Portola bridge.
Today, The Garland is overseen by Beverly’s son, James Crank, who continues to elevate the property as a top hotel in Los Angeles while still honoring his mom. When guests set foot in the property, they are surrounded by 1970’s touches, from the decor to inspired programming. Most notable is Beverly Park, a sprawling outdoor event space nestled under towering sycamore trees, perfect for events and weddings. The Garland is located just minutes from many of Hollywood’s most popular destinations, including Universal Studios and its brand-new Super Nintendo World (with a complimentary trolley to and from the park), Universal CityWalk, The Hollywood Walk of Fame and Warner Bros Studios. The hotel is truly a destination for all travelers — from families and couples to business travelers — with endless programming such as urban walks through the neighborhood past the famed Brady Bunch House, courtyard acoustics with a live guitar player each week, and dive-in movies to enjoy a classic flick by the pool.
In honor of the boutique property’s milestone anniversary, The Garland brought back its beloved events such as the Spring & Fall Block Parties and the Summer Concert Series in Beverly Park for both guests and locals. The property’s popular Drag Yourself to the Valley Drag Show is also back in full swing, celebrating the hotel’s rich LGBTQ+ history during LA Pride with the special event hosted by longtime Pride activist Billy Francesca. Recent updates include the unveiling of a new pool deck and courtyard refresh, as well as an expansion of The Garland’s curated shop, The Store, featuring all locally-sourced and California-inspired items that are designed, hand-picked and merchandised by Beverly Garland's daughter, Carrington Goodman.
