Hotel Brandwood

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean room, good bed ... old school hotel. A bit quirky, but comfortable. Good value for the money.

Great I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

The location was great and exactly what we needed! The staff was also very friendly. The only issue is the stairs, You will need to go up a flight of stairs to get to the lobby and rooms. Luckily a staff member took our luggage up and down the stairs. I would not recommend this hotel for anyone that has a difficult time going up or down the stairs.

Really enjoyed the location of this hotel. Quick into Griffith Park for the LA Zoo, Observatory and Hollywood sign. Easy in and out (as easy as LA traffic would allow) of Hollywood and the city.

Hotel was nice inside and staff was very helpful. There was only a view of the wall of the bank out the window but otherwise very nice especially for the price!

Really enjoyed the hotel. No elevators, but if your legs work, no problem. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was nice to stay on Brand. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. Walked to breakfast and came across the Americana at Brand. Would definitely recommend checking this area out. Lots of nice shopping and outdoor cafes with a fountain and plenty of green grass to sit and enjoy a nice afternoon.

Hotel staff were great and accommodating. Room is a little small and not a lot of storage for luggage, but it was nice quality. I liked the style too.

Quiet, clean, with some old time charm. Nice hotel without a chain vibe. Staff is friendly and efficient. You can't beat the location if your business or pleasure brings you to Glendale. Free parking, no valet required.

Found head and pubic hair in the bed. Not what you'd expect to find in a clean bed. Bath room was gross, especially the shower/tub which looked like it had not been cleaned in months. No, that's not a marble finish or petunia... it's filth that hasn't been cleaned from the tub. Yeah, go ahead and stand in there barefoot and bathe yourself. I slept with all my clothes on and checked out earlier than scheduled, the next day. No question as to why or if I enjoyed my stay.

Great area to browse shops and places to eat. The old hotel is nicely decorated and clean, but, the plumbing can be a little noisy at times. The rooms are small but cozy and comfortable. It's fun being in downtown Glendale.

The room was very accommodating and offered more than anticipated, however, the accessibility to the room was very inconveniencing; to get to any rooms and the receptionist, you have to go up two flights of stairs.

Had to use two remotes to work tv no instructions provided. Desk clerk had to come to my room to explain how it works.

Very nice and quaint. I would return for another stay. Great location. Very enjoyable.

Boutique Hotel. Very close to businesses and restaurants. I walked to the office and to eat at night. Rooms are small but neat. There is no gym nor swimming pool so if that's what you are looking for don't stay here. Parking is in the Bank of America lot behind the hotel and on top level. If you have a handicap or trouble climbing stairs this is not the place to stay. No elevators as it's a 2 story building. Stairs from the street to the lobby and then 2nd floor rooms. Stairs to the 2nd level to get your car. I will stay here again because of the convenience of not having to fight traffic to work and eat.

Yes it met our expectations. As long as you read the hotel description beforehand. No elevator. Free parking is about 2 blocks away. Loved the location.

Nice hotel for the money. Convenient location. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Would recommend to others.

This was a great experience. Check in was simple and the location was convenient to many shops and restaurants. Room was clean and comfortable.

The room is small but very clean. Comfy bed, maybe a little soft for my taste but nice crisp linens and a variety of pillow thicknesses. Very nice bathroom, clean and updated. Our room on the back of the top floor was nice and quiet. My only minor complaint is there should be a shelf under the mirror for toiletries... very small sink vanity.

No elevator, lots of steep stairs. Overall, nice historic hotel however, jazz club below of which you can hear band while in your room.

First, the staff was nice; the room was nicely appointed; the parking was free; and it is next door to a restaurant, bar, and jazz club. But, you have to climb a lot of steps (I didn't see an elevator and no one mentioned one); the rooms are tiny; the free parking is on the second floor of a bank parking garage on the other side of the block; and the location is a long walk to the shopping and dining area of town. That's just too many negatives for me.
