“good value in the heart of hollywood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Found this property through Trip Advisor recommendations and were very happy we booked it. We were in a 2-king suite which gave us a king in the living/dining/kitchen room and a second king in a separate bedroom (TV's in both rooms). The extra space (&TV) was appreciated, travelling with our son and daughter who needed some "apart time" to stop them killing each other! The hotel isn't Hollywood glamour but is very well located (take the walkway through the Hollywood Highland Centre straight to Hollywood Boulevard, the Metro and bus stop) Great view of the Hollywood sign from the Highland Centre. Universal studios is one metro stop away. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Included breakfast good - fruit, juice, bagels & cream cheese, muffins, yoghurt and hot drinks. Breakfast lady is lovely but she really doesn't need to cut people's croissants in half and toast them for them. After a few weeks on the road its actually quite comforting to toast your croissant or bagel yourself! An enjoyable stay all round. Would definitely recommend this property for families.

If you after a fancy deluxe hotel in Hollywood then try Loews which is nearby. If you want something on a budget, good location, suitable for families with low cost parking then Hollywood Orchid Suites will meet your needs.

This hotel is converted apartments, the rooms are a decent sized with a small kitchenette, it can be deemed to be rather rough and ready, there was no view from our room but step out of the hotel and you can access Hollywood Boulevard from the Hollywood & Highland mall.

The parking was about $12 per day, there is laundry room where you can use the washing machine for a low fee, the hotel has a small swimming pool and in the morning you can have a small buffet continental breakfast with croissants, muffins, toast, yogurt, juice, tea and coffee etc. Its not fancy but enough to start the day.

We have stayed in more expensive hotels in Hollywood before but as we were on a road trip with our children, we were after two double beds and more importantly low cost parking. The Orchid suites met our needs.

Let me start this review by saying it is not a 5 star luxury hotel - if that's what you're after then look outside of Hollywood. This is not the place for you!

We stayed at the Orchid Suites for 3 nights at the beginning of October. From the moment we checked in the staff were friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us.

We were lucky enough to have had our room upgraded so we had a king bed apartment with a full size kitchen and proper lounge and dining area. The bed was comfy and the room was relatively quiet so this was ideal for us.

The hotel is behind the walk of fame so it is handy if you want to go exploring. If I'm honest, I wouldn't stay in this area again as I really didn't like Hollywood at all, but that is no reflection on this hotel whatsoever.

The parking is only $11 a night and is perfectly secure. The breakfast is free and good enough. The wifi worked well too. The swimming pool is heated - it needs to be though as that area doesn't get much sun. It was great for a dip though. There is also a lovely sunny roof garden too. The hotel is behind the Dolby Theatre so there was a lot of traffic going past, but this didn't bother us at all and you could only really hear it when you're outside.

Overall, you won't do any better than this for the price and service it offers.

this place was safe, with bars on the windows, a secure parking lot and always someone watching. it had a nice and clean pool. the rooms were very clean and roomy. we had a one bedroom suite with a bed in the living room. the location was awesome. literally a three minute walk to the chinese theater, hooters, the mall and that whole area. the price was very reasonable for the area as well. parking was $10. the only thing it needed, but didn't have, was a hot tub.

We stayed here October 12th - 14th. Rented two rooms. This hotel is a transformed apartment building. Huge closet with a safe, full kitchen and bath. The main room/bedroom had all new furnishings. The balcony was lovely and our second room balcony was attached with privacy glass for separation.. The building is very secure. The parking was cheaper than most. Never needed to take the car as we found ourselves centrally located right in the thick of things yet very quiet at night. The breakfast was continental style with plenty of home made goodies! The staff was remarkable. They were available 24/7. We enjoyed the rooftop gardens and had our cocktails there. I just can't say enough!

This hotel of suites is in the perfect place for visiting Hollywood. Walk thru the under ground parking at the adjacent mall and you are on Hollywood boulevard. It is one subway stop from universal studios. We had a suite that had separate bedroom and a sofa that turned into a bed as well as a full kitchen. If you are looking for something on a budget, this hotel is perfect as you could cook all your meals in the room. We never made it to the breakfast buffet but there is a lot of food choices close by. The only bad thing I could say (and it didn't affect my stay) is that the water pressure is not great and there is a musty smell when first entering the room. It is an old building so everything is dated but the service was great and very helpful. I would recommend staying here.

we decided to go budget for our two night stay in Hollywood and this hotel was great, it may be located behind a large shopping Mall, but the location is perfect, it is right on Hollywood Boulevard two minutes through the Mall, restaurants on the doorstep, food shopping if you want your own food, tours and trips from next to the Mall and theatres all on the doorstep.

The room which we found was like an apartment with its own, kitchen, bedroom with sitting area, large bathroom with bath and shower was very comfortable, very clean and very well equipped.

Breakfast is buffet style but the lady who helps serve you is a very lovely lady and couldn't do enough for us, she should get an award, I am sorry we can't remember your name but thank you for the way you looked after us.

The reception staff are also very friendly and if you wanted to know anything they either knew or would find out for you.

Well done, great place to stay.
