“A gem in the center of hollywood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This hotel is greatly located just steps away from the main hollywood attractions (Dolby Theather, Chinese Theather, Walk of fame, etc.) and to the Hollywood & Highland Center, which has great places to eat and to do some shopping.

Further, the room is really spacious and its has a kitchen. There are not a lot of options for breakfast, but that did not bother me as the options available were good (fruits, bagel, muffins). At last, the staff is really friendly and helpful!

Room Tip: If possible, try to get rooms on the upper floors at the end of the corridor (rooms 214 and 314), so...

Great location for sightseeing. Right in the heart of Hollywood, this was the perfect location for almost everything. Close to the metro, great bars and restaurants.
Room was large, comfortable, a little dated butthis hotel is really great value for money.
Muffins at breakfst are really good.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Our family of four (two adults, two late teenagers) spent a week here in two rooms on the top floor (of three floors). This was our base for sightseeing LA, after a few days at Annaheim and a day trip to San Deigo. The location is perfect for Universal Studios, Hollywood boulevard, and is close enough to downtown LA, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica, Getty Museum for trips further afield (we had a hire car for our time in LA, which we would recommend).

The suites were clean, very roomy and well appointed, if a little dated, with good sized kitchens if you want to prepare your own food. The walls are thin, and you'll probably hear your neighbours from time to time. The wifi is a little irregular in the rooms and in some spots you couldn't connect. Car parking is underground (access via a lift from your floor) and was US$10 per day. Check-in and service during our stay was outstanding - very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is great: croissants, bagels, spreads, fresh fruit, coffee, juices, cereals and came with very friendly service.

The hotel is two minutes walk from the Chinese Theatre, Dolby Theatre, Hard Rock Cafe, and everything the Boulevard has to offer (which might not be as glamorous as you expect Hollywood to be, compared to Rodeo Drive and Santa Monica).

We would definitely recommend Orchid Suites for those wanting a base in central Hollywood.

Upon arrival the room was not ready, but for good reason as they were changing all of the drapes and that gave the room a nice fresh feel.

The rooms are spacious and well appointed, this is not a ritzy 5 star place, its just very comfortable and very clean.

The staff are very friendly and very helpful, the location is as close to the tourist sites as you would want to be. We had a car, so our trip to Universal Studios was easy and fast.

The breakfast is basic, but that's all you want.

Overall I would say this is the place to stay, no exceptions. The price, the rooms, the location is a good mix of value and quality.

Room Tip: Perhaps try the rooms on top, as the footsteps on the walkway tends to echo down below.

We stayed here for 4 nights, it is a very secure hotel as you have to be buzzed in like a apartment building when returning to hotel and you are always greeted by staff, This hotel is close to shopping, dining and hollywood blvd, it is very quiet and the most noise I heard was from the trucks that are delivering to the loading docks adjacent to the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Hollywood as the rooms were huge, free breakfest etc

We paid roughly 1000 for 6 nights (Feb. '13).

You CAN NOT get that anywhere unless you're stuck in the boonies. On top of that, the large suite was fresh, clean, albeit, not blessed with great sight lines. That's okay, unless you fancy being stuck in your suite all day long.

People, save the money you'd ordinarily pay and put it in your child's college fund - or that next trip.

Orchid Suites? You truly surprised me!

Arrived just after 3pm to be informed that they'd given us a free room upgrade. I still have no idea why we received this upgrade but it was a fantastic surprise! The room was huge! It had its own kitchen and living area, bathroom and bedroom. It was very comfortable.
Initially I wasn't sure how to get to Hollywood Boulevard so I asked the staff for directions. It was so close you could actually see it from the hotel! It was right next to the Hollywood and Highland Shopping Centre too. Absolutely perfect.
Breakfast was small but adequate. It was enough to get us started for the day. Another bonus was that the hotel was very close to the train and bus stations. The staff at the reception were fantastic. They were always more than happy to help us out with directions. They made it very easy to catch the train to Universal Studios and the bus to The Grove.
The hotel also has washing machines and vending machines down stairs which is very helpful for people on long holidays.
All of this for a very affordable price. This is the perfect hotel for people looking for location over luxury. Rooms are still perfect to stay in and the location and price is perfect. Would absolutely stay here again the next time I come to Hollywood. Thankyou!!
