“Excellent location, spacious apt style rooms, great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2009

We stayed for 4 nights, loved the place! Excellent location, right in the middle of Hollywood. Alot of Hollywood's attractions within walking distance, as well as shopping centres, restaurants, cafes, and movie theatres. Free secure garage parking, free internet access, laundy facilities, pool, 24 hour reception, TV, fully equipped kitchen - Hollywood Orchid Suites has it all! Free breakfast with bagels and pastries, tea/coffee and orange juice. Be sure to book free tickets online to the Jimmy Kimmel Show - a 3 min walk, just across from Chinese Mann's theatre. We highly recommend this apartment style motel/hotel! A perfect place for backpackers as well as families or couples who want to stay right in the middle of everything, not spend all their savings, be able to cook ur own food and stay at a place with "everything" included in the price. Look no further, book it!

Firstly I'd like to say the staff we dealt with were excellent, very friendly, helpful and nothing was a problem. The location was why we stayed there and to be able to walk out of the hotel and have Hollywood at your feet was amazing but the public transport to get you almost anywhere you wanted to go was excellent, the Metro to Universal, the 217 to the Farmers Market, the 222 right to Warner Bros and all the tour operators along Hollywood Boulevard if you choose to see the stars homes. The pool was great to hop in every night to cool off at the end of each days activities. We feel the breakfast was more than ample and the choice good considering it was advertised as a "Light" breakfast. The laundry was handy and the change machine was good to get fares for bus/train rides. We found the rooms were dated but more than comfortable and being serviced everyday were kept very clean.

this hotel was in a great location- close to tourist attractions & Universal Studios.
The rooms needed upgrading! They were hot & stuffy but clean. The beds had a plastic covering on the mattress which made it hot & uncomfortable to sleep on. The staff were very friendly & helpful. Breakfast was very basic but the pool was nice to relax in. Good place if you're on a budget.

A good location for many major attractions in Hollywood, and the hop on, hop off bus service for greater LA. The hotel was comfortable, but could do with some refurbishment. All the staff we encountered were polite and helpful. Fair value for money.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2009

We booked the Orchid Suites based on the reviews that we read on trip advisor which were quite accurate. Great location, near Hollywood Blvd, Kodak Theater and shopping center with lots of restaurants to choose from. The free parking, nice breakfast and computer with printer were great.
The staff were very friendly, accomodating and helpful in particular when we asked to change rooms since we were initally given a suite on the ground floor facing the pool which was very noisy.
However, the rooms are a bit shabby and run down with a smell and sliding doors that do not work and is definitely do for a renovation. Do nto expect a 5 star hotel.
Also, the older man on duty in the evenings was extremely rude and basically ignored us. We decided to wait until the morning when the "nicer" staff were on duty.

Great location, friendly service, great rates...totally would recommend to anyone going to LA. It is very close to everything, and even to the LA subway system, close to the shops, the supermarket, can't really find anything wrong with this hotel.... two thumbs up!

As many have already pointed out, this hotel is the best when it comes to location. It is just a short walk from Hollywood Blvd (there is a small road outside of the hotel that exits directly into the shopping plaza).
The hotel is located behind the Kodak theatre.
I enjoyed my stay and have no complains at all.
The room had a parking lot view but even so it was never noisy. In the end it was better to face that side as it was quiet all the time.
Our room had a kitchen that we did not use and fortunately it had a door as the fridge was very noisy.
But the room had an odd smell…
The rooms that face the pool seemed to be very small and one of the rooms had a very very noisy air/con.
The air/con system is very old, so are the rooms, but I guess that if all was to be refurbished, it wouldn’t be so cheap anymore.
The breakfast was simple but had a good selection.
There was also a computer with printer so we could use the internet for free.
The hotel staff was so friendly! The lady at the reception in the morning gave us so many great tips! She was really helpful!
