Hollywood Bohemian Boutique Hotel
The newly refreshed Garland Hotel is an urban retreat
The problem with Hollywood is that it can feel very… Hollywood. Not so at the newly refreshed Garland Hotel, a seven-acre urban retreat tucked in L.A.’s North Hollywood. After a $20 million renovation that spanned guest rooms, the retro-cool lobby, and its restaurant, The Front Yard, the family-owned property has re-emerged as a chic ode to the ’70s (see: poolside macramé classes). There are still nods to the city’s most prominent industry, like free transport to Universal Studios via vintage trolley and a photo of paparazzi from La Dolce Vita wallpapered in the closets of all 257 guest rooms. Pooches up to 40 pounds are welcome, too, and treated to a toy and mini dog park with a shiny orange fire hydrant. How’s that for A-list?
