The Garland

Once upon a time, The Garland was a Howard Johnson’s hotel in North Hollywood. Fifty years later, it’s been reimagined as The Garland, a charming hotel that’s a throwback to the property’s many eras. There’s charm at every turn, from the décor to dive-in movies at the pool and yoga in a hidden garden. The hotel’s location is perfect for visiting Universal Studios, catching the freeways for fave Los Angeles attractions, or tooling down Ventura Boulevard.

TIP: There are so many great nooks for enjoying the SoCal sunshine — procuring a cocktail from the Lobby Bar or a table for brunch at The Front Yard (do yourself a favor and check out their brunch — that staying put might just win out.


Hollywood Hills Hotel

Two hundred and fifty feet above Hollywood Boulevard, the iconic Yamashiro restaurant has held sway for decades. Spot it, and the desire to dine within the 1914-built Japanese mansion is undeniable. Want to truly immerse in the “Mountain Palace” with its 600-year-old poolside pagoda and miniature Japanese garden replete with koi? You’re in luck. The Hollywood Hills Hotel (HHH) has rooms and suites with panoramic views from their patios. The contact-free hotel has no staff on site, which lends to its serenity.

TIP: It’s possible to stroll down to Hollywood to frequent restaurants and shops, but in-room kitchenettes make it easy to stay in and cook for the group.


Hotel Amarano

Tucked away in Burbank next to the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, the AAA Four Diamond Hotel Amarano is a quiet oasis. Making its location extra sweet is prime freeway access and proximity to various film studios (Walt Disney, Warner Brothers, and Universal amongst them), Griffith Park, and the LA Zoo. The 132-room luxury boutique hotel gets a nod for amenities, too: a heated outdoor swimming pool, hot tub, beach cruisers, plus 24-hour valet parking.

TIP: The patio of “For Your Consideration,” aka FYC Bar + Kitchen, is the place to kick back for California-contemporary cuisine and crafted cocktails. Relax, kick back, or join the hotel’s neighbors and go for a horseback ride.


Hotel Roosevelt

The glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Era is alive and well at the Hotel Roosevelt. Situated right on Hollywood Boulevard, the property has hosted luminaries such as Marilyn Monroe, Carole Lombard, and Clark Gable (check out the suites designed with them in mind), since its 1927 opening. Visit today, and it’s not uncommon to come across celebrities by the ’60s-style pool swilling cocktails from the Tropicana Bar.

TIP: Feeling peckish? Duck into dining in venues such as The Barish by Nancy Silverton and 25 Degrees. Want to embrace the hotel’s vintage vibe? Catch some live jazz at The Lobby or comedy at The Cinegrill Theatre.


Mama Shelter

Friends looking for a getaway that’s all about cutting loose will embrace Mama Shelter’s energy. The sole Americas-based hotel of this international brand, the property has a bit of European flare that rubs elbows with Hollywood ambiance. Head to the rooftop bar for views of the Hollywood sign, Capitol Records, and DTLA high-rises. This is an excellent way to check out walking distance surrounds, too, including Ovation Hollywood (formerly Hollywood & Highland), Hollywood Walk of Fame, TCL Chinese Theatre, and the LA Metro.

TIP: If staying on a Sunday from 5pm to 10pm, you’ll find UTOPIA TRIBE spinning music and guests dancing under the stars. Worked up an appetite? Grab a bite at Mama’s Restaurant.
