On my second night in Hollywood I managed to get a deluxe king room at the Orchid Suites for 3 nights.
What a great place. This hotel was originally a block of apartments, converted in the late 90s. It is still more along the lines of serviced apartments, so don't expect room service or restaurants. There is no need for either, as the back entrance of the Hollywood and Highland Center is a few well lit steps away, offering a dining variety very few hotels in the world could hope to provide.
The staff at this establishment always greeted me with a smile. When I needed help with something it was instantly provided, and as a solo traveler in his late fifties this was important. The hotel is very secure, with free underground parking, a huge advantage in LA.
I liked this place so much that I have already booked and paid to stay another 3 nights on the way back to Australia. This could become my secret US base.
