More About Glendale, CA Hotels...

With pleasant weather nearly year-round, Glendale doesn't have a peak season or an off-season, and as such, room prices stay more or less constant no matter when you travel.

Glendale Rooms for Every Budget

Visitors looking for cheap rooms can do well at the Chariot Inn, Days Inn Glendale, and the Econo Lodge Glendale. The latter will give you free wi-fi, breakfast, parking, and local phone calls. The Glendale Motel might be the best value in town, though. It might not be the classiest option, but the rooms are spacious, and they come with big-screen TVs.

These hotels are not as close to the Glendale business district as the more expensive Embassy Suites Los Angeles-Glendale or Hilton Los Angeles North/Glendale, both of which have rooms for closer to $200 per night. 

The Hotel Brandwood, meanwhile, offers boutique style in the heart of downtown, close to the main shops, restaurants, and business centers. The hotel has its own café, plus the Jax Bar and Grill, which features daily live jazz performances. There's no elevator here, but the rooms are clean, and the location can't be beat.

A Robust Selection of Airbnb Properties

Nearly 100 Airbnb properties are currently listed for the Glendale area. These range from shared apartment bedrooms for around $40 all the way up to a four-bedroom house in the hills of Chevy Chase for $375. In between are some alluring options too, including a bed in a condo just blocks from the Americana at Brand mall for $75, a single-bedroom Spanish-style home from the 1930s with a pool for $89, and a five-bed 1920s estate house overlooking the Valley for $140.

Not Merely a Suburb of LA

Glendale is situated at the meeting point of the San Gabriel Valley and the San Fernando Valley (known as "the Valley"), with the Verdugo Mountains running through the middle. Founded in 1906, Glendale's footprint is some 31 square miles large, 4800 acres of which consists of publicly owned open spaces.

Although it's considered to be an LA suburb, Glendale is its own city. Boasting a population of approximately 196,000, it's the third largest of Los Angeles County's 88 cities.

Mall Shopping in the Valley

With 1.6 million square feet of retail space, the Glendale Galleria has over 200 shops and four department stores. The mall, which first opened in 1976, underwent a comprehensive remodeling project in 2012, with new floors, escalators, and facades freshening up its look.

The far newer and higher-concept Americana at Brand complex, which opened across the street in 2008, boasts 75 stores and 338 housing units surrounding a two-acre park courtyard with a musical fountain centerpiece. The budget Vagabond Inn is located just outside the Americana at Brand.

Getting To and Around Glendale

Glendale connects to greater LA's bus system, and its train station has lines running to Pasadena and Los Angeles. However, driving is the transportation method of choice in metropolitan LA. As congested as the freeway system here has been known to become, it's still far more efficient than any other way to get around. Car rentals are available from all the mainstream national providers, plus a few local companies. Taxis are readily available, as are ride share opportunities via Uber.

The cheapest way to get to Glendale from other parts of the country is to fly into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). This massive hub has tons of flights from all major cities, both domestic and international. Neighboring Burbank's Bob Hope Airport (BUR), a considerably more modest facility, offers regional connections to and from cities like Portland, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Las Vegas, as well as daily red-eye from Burbank to New York-JFK operated by JetBlue.
