Hey Just Wanted To Say Me and My Girlfriend Stayed At This Hotel and These Wonderful People made us feel At home i Wouldn't want to check in to any other hotel in LA after experiencing the HighLand Gardens.Thanks For Everything and we will be back!!!
For 200 a night A block of Hollywood Boulevard in the center of Hollywood? What were you expecting? The place has a lot of history. It was Errol Flynn's last home in 1959. as most of you know Janis Joplin died of a drug overdose here. Many up-and-coming actors musicians stayed or lived here one time or another since its opening in 1957. The place has a lot of charm, The lobby has been refurbished and given a new look, but the rest of the hotel is very much what it was what it opened. Most places like this in west LA get torn down or become a generic best Western, I like the rustic charm of the place but it's not for everyone. Lot of international travelers that visit Hollywood stay there, but a lot of locals check in. Most the staff is friendly and accommodating, even when dealing with crazy requests from people who think they're staying in a five-star hotel.
*HEALTH WARNING* - We stayed at this hotel in early July 2013. We checked out early after discovering mold growing in the living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms. Rooms are extremely dirty. Silverfish and bed bugs living in beds. Prescription drugs missing from our toiletries after maid service. Carpets are filthy. Laundry is dirty and stained. DON'T LET THE OTHER POSTS OR PHOTOS FOOL YOU! This place is disgusting!! If you care about your health, stay away from this hotel. We notified Los Angeles City Health Department the next day.
This hotel has been a delight. Once you come through the front door into the lobby, you're secluded from Hollyweird. The property has been here since the mid-1950's, and some if it is showing a bit of wear. Don't let that discourage you. You will enjoy your time here. Formerly known as the Landmark Hotel, Highland Gardens offers three levels of 1 bedroom suites, each with a complete kitchen, living and dining area, with most featuring balconies which overlook a well maintained pool area that's surrounded by a dense garden, all at a price that is significantly below surrounding rates for a standard room. So, you'll enjoy the convenience of a walk in closet, along with lush flowers and tropical vegetation outside your windows. Standard rooms in the main building are also available. (Yes, Janis Joplin died here, in room 105. It's been 42 years. Get over it.) If you're looking for somewhere to stay that is quiet, comfortable, clean, and safe, this is your hotel. You might get an afternoon seranade from a vocalist or guitarist attending or preparing to enroll at Musician's Institute. Sit back and enjoy: there's no charge and they're very talented.
Google image this hotel as they only show the lobby - rooms are old , very outdated , smell bad . I paid for executive suite for whole kitchen but oven didn't work , had to throw away groceries . No phone service unless you walk to courtyard :( very inconvenient ! Front desk clerks very rude and unhelpful . Maid didn't come til almost 6pm and literally cleaned half the room - making only one bed , placing clean towels on dirty toilet and didn't leave new shampoo ( she came w no cart ) - when trying to get some from front lobby forget it . Had a visitor and they tried to charge me for another entire room !!! They even double charged my card at check in which can't even be reversed for 5 days ,tying up our spending money .Lush landscape was a plus . Won't be staying here again . Just be careful when considering.g this place
