I got a chance to stay at The Garland Hotel. Just love the feel, the food and the aesthetic of this place. Let me tell you why.

We were hosted by The Garland. All opinions are my own.

Do you ever feel like you just want to get away but still stay close by? You need to just change it up? That was me a few weeks ago. I was searching for a staycation spot for my husband’s birthday. I stumbled upon The Garland. This boutique hotel was included in the 2021 Travel + Leisure 500. I just love this place!

A Retro Aesthetic

I love a retro aesthetic! I have another post on retro style here. This spot brought all of the midcentury vibes through their colors and decor. It was the little details that got me. For instance, they have a retro style phone in the hallways. Of course, I made sure my outfit matched! I am wearing an xl in this dress. Watch a video on a night at The Garland:

Also, there are pops of orange throughout the property. Trees with string lights are peppered all around the property. It is a whimsical combination. Likewise, the twinkling lights in the courtyard and by the pool make for a perfect couples staycation.

The Service is on Point!

The service during our stay was impeccable. For example, you don’t have to search for someone to assist you. The staff is friendly and will approach you to see if you need assistance. Additionally, you could always just use that cute phone in the hallway to get help with anything.

The Food is too Good

Additionally, the food! It is so good! They have a restaurant right on the property, The Front Yard, that is phenomenal. I ordered the steak and my husband ordered the pot pie. Also, the drinks are fantastic too! We weren’t the only ones who thought the food was delicious. The Front Yard is a popular spot in the area. So, be sure to make reservations in advance!

Insider tip: Make your reservation for dinner at The Front Yard in advance! Don’t wait until you arrive!

Lastly, the location is convenient. The Garland located in North Hollywood and is minutes away from Universal Studios. There is a trolley that can take you to Universal City Walk and Universal Studios. That makes it easy to plan an evening. For example, you can jump on the trolley after dinner and stroll around that area.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a boutique style hotel with excellent service and food, this is where you need to go!
