We picked this location as it was close to Universal Studios. However unless you drive it is quite out of the way for everything. The rooms were nice, but i did not like staying in the lower level as people from the carpark could see right in. It was also very hard to get any

Dear Craig M, Thank you for choosing to stay at The Garland. We look forward to welcoming you in LA. As for as your questions, there a quite a few options to getting to and from LAX airport. Should you not want to deal with navigating an airport, our concierge can help assist with booking a private sedan or SUV, depending on size of your party. Also there are they mobile phone apps, like Uber or Lyft. Another option is taking a shared ride service like SuperShuttle, which similar to the mobile apps you do not need to prebook leaving the airport. In regards to Santa Monica, the most economic way to get there is by public subway transportation, the Metro. Our hotel trolley takes guests to and from the hotel to Universal Studios; it also makes a quick stop at the nearest metro station for those guests that want to explore LA.

Do they.have a kettle in the bedrooms and far away is a shopping outlet thanks
Dear Charmaine S, Thank you for reaching out to us at The Garland. Although we do not have kettles in the room, the room does offer a coffee/tea maker to heat water. Simply don't add the coffee and you'll have instant hot water. As far as shopping, LA is famous for its shopping; however outlets are a little further away, outside of the main LA area, which we would recommend driving. Our dedicated and knowledgeable concierge team would love to assist.

"Don't stay on the lower floor, people from carpark may see in."
"If you are planning to use the balcony in your room, request a room facing the courtyard (or away from the freeway)."
"Choose Eldorado Building. Is in the back of the lobby. Very quiet. We stayed in first floor."
"Do not eat or drink here, simple."
"I stayed on the fourth floor in the Portola it was very much quiet."
