Stepping in front of a roaring fire in the wood-paneled lobby at The Garland is a welcome treat indeed. The 7-acre former Howard Johnson property has lived through its share of remakes, though current owners have embraced, rather than disparaged, the hotel’s schmaltzy Tinseltown vibe (that’s no accident, either—the name references Beverly Garland, a small-time TV actress who also happens to be the owner’s son). Make a beeline to late-night happy hour (10-midnight on weekdays; 10pm-1am Friday and Saturday) for tuna tartare and $4 beers, served alfresco at the intimate Front Yard bar. Ride the free shuttle to Universal Studios. Or just unwind in your room—the bright, 70s-style design perfectly frames the garden views from your private patio or balcony.
