“Perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

As others have said, this hotel has the perfect location for exploring Hollywood. The hotel itself is a bit dated and worn, but if you're like me, the most important things are the place being clean and safe.
Our room had a full kitchen, separate lounge and a bedroom. Everything worked as it should and we felt very comfortable.
If you're picky about decor and some flakey paint, then this place won't suit you. But if you want somewhere clean, comfortable and in the perfect location, this one is for you.

Our second stay at Hollywood Orchid Suites Hotel. And another great experience. although it was fully booked on various sites, after ringing the hotel, they found a room for us, going the extra mile to welcome back a loyal customer. This hotel is in the perfect location, right near Hollywood Blvd. Lovely and genuine service. Large spacious rooms. If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel then this is the one for you. Its a gem. and an added bonus of free car park (which is very rare in LA). Our room had a comfy bed, good size bathroom, lots of closet space which was perfect after traveling for a month, we had accumulated a lot of stuff, so it was nice to have the space to put it all away and not clutter the room. Nice to have a pool for the end of the days adventures and to cool off in the hot LA weather. Location wise - OUTSTANDING - right around the corner to Hollywood blvd - and everything that comes with it (walk of fame, kodak theatre, wax museum etc) and you can see the hollywood sign at the end of the hotel's street. If you have a rental car - then all the sightseeing locations are not far away, and you can get used to driving in LA traffic (its quite an experience). Overall I LOVE this hotel - there is no where else we would rather stay. Looking forward to staying again in our trip back to LA in September 2013 :-)

Room Tip: Take advantage of the free car park and hire a rental car.

We chose this hotel for its location, just off of Hollywood Blvd, and the fact that the rooms had full kitchens, we didn't really know what to expect and boy were we pleasantly surprised.

The rooms are large and very clean, the kitchen had everything you need to make any type of meal or snack, which is great for keeping food costs down. In addition there is a continental breakfast every morning with fresh fruit, several varieties of cereal, muffins, bagels and coissant, plus coffee, tea and juice. As long as you are not looking for a big breakfast it is more then ample and the breakfast lady ( I wish I had gotten her name) is the sweetest most accommodating person.

The desk staff are all very friendly and more then happy to answer any questions and help with suggestions on different attractions. Plus there is complimentary WiFi and a public computer with a printer which was great for printing out driving directions.

We were there with others and got two adjacent rooms with an outside door that allowed us to keep our room doors open and still have privacy. We stayed for 4 nights then checked out to drive to Las Vegas but with reservations to come back 4 days later for an additional 5 nights. When we were checking out we requested the same rooms when we returned. We were told they would try but couldn't guarantee it. On our return we were told we would be getting back "our" rooms, we felt like we were coming home :-).

On of the great and we felt undiscovered perks was the rooftop garden, there are tables and chaises and we spent several evenings enjoying the night with a glass of wine and some snacks

I would and have recommended this hotel to several people, it really is the perfect combination of location, price and service.

The Hollywood Orchid Suites is tucked behind Hollywood Blvd. but is a quiet retreat. The rooms are clean, the kitchen is equipped with everything you need to eat in, and the staff is super friendly and accommodating to special requests. The complementary breakfast was nothing to get excited about, but was stocked with fresh fruit and bagels, muffins, and cereals. Don't miss an opportunity to enjoy your coffee or wine on the rooftop garden---lovely. I would definitely stay here again.

The Hollywood Orchid Suites is the best hotel in Hollywood. No scams. No broken chairs; holes in the wall. It is the best because it is the cheapest hotel but with all the amenities of a 5 star hotel (including a waterfall in the foyer)! The service is the best literally knowing what I would want before I would ask. Can't wait to be back!

Travelled by car and if you look away from the heavy traffic up from Santa Monica this hotel is awesome!

It has a great location, nice staff, parking in garage for a small fee, complimentary light breakfast, WiFi and the rooms are all large.

We enjoyed our stay and would come back again :)

If modern kitchen and bathroom fittings matter to you then look elsewhere. For the rest of you this is the perfect place to stay in Hollywood. Spotlessly clean, large living area, huge comfortable bed and sofa bed, as close to Hollywood and Highland shops as it is possible to be, great public transport links, well maintained pool, friendly helpful staff .... Perfect in every way.
