Hollywood offers plenty of excitement and adventure for family travelers, with attractions like Universal Studios, the Hollywood sign and the Walk of Fame, celebrating the glamour and magic of this fascinating town. As the Garland Hotelcelebrates its 50th anniversary, the hotel welcomes families to experience the glam and glory of Hollywood firsthand.


Named after actress Beverly Garland, this historic property recently underwent a renovation and refreshment process to ensure families, whether local or visiting from afar, get an Old Hollywood experience from beginning to end.


Built in 1972 by the husband of its namesake actress, the 257-room property is known for Hollywood glam. From the newly renovated pool, the Garland revamped every aspect of the property to remind guests what it is like to live like a star. With furniture and décor that is comfortable and inviting yet reminiscent of a glamorous, bygone era, the property is at once relaxing and welcoming, giving guests an immediate sense they are in for a real treat while there.


Just minutes from Hollywood’s most famous attractions, the hotel is an ideal spot for families looking to see the sites, but there is no need to leave the property for the Hollywood experience. Take in a flick on site at Beverly Garland Theater or while relaxing poolside in the evening at the ‘dive-in’ theater. Go for a stroll through calming Beverly Park or simply sit back and relax for a meal at the Front Yard, the property’s celebrity hot spot signature restaurant.


At the Garland, pets are welcome, allowing the whole family to enjoy their vacation without leaving anyone behind. The hotel offers a great welcome package for dogs who are registered to stay, including a welcome toy, dog mat and dog bowl, as well as bottled water for your furbaby to keep them hydrated and happy.
